Night (a.k.a.) Nervous Breakdown

Ginger's singing in a club, so the Wards go to San Francisco. Richard invites Laura over on a pretext, but once there he tries to get her to come back. She says no and they argue. Gary hears, and goes over to stop the fight. Richard pulls a gun on him, so he leaves and calls police. Richard holds Laura at gunpoint and gets crazier and crazier, so she starts to play along with him. Meanwhile, a swat team has surrounded the house. Richard eventually lets Laura go, and puts the gun to his head, but it isn't loaded. The police bring Richard to a psychiatric hospital for observation.
