Delayed on the train ride home one Friday afternoon, a man recalls for
his wife his childhood memories of visits with his uncle and aunt on Shabbat.
Theodore Bikel is the uncle in this original dramatic videoplay.
"T.G.I.F.," says the young husband-"Thank goodness it's Friday." He is
corrected by a fellow rider who points out that they should say, "T.G.I.S."
There begins the story.
