|September 28, 1957  "The
Case of the Sleepwalker's Niece"
In this episode Perry must defend a man with a motive. Peter Cole walks in his sleep and has been found more than once roaming the house, unaware of his actions. One night, he was even found standing over someone's bed holding a knife. Now he's been accused of stabbing a man who was attempting to extort money from him and block the progression of his divorce. Cole hires Perry to handle his difficult defense.
Perry needs all the encouragement he can get. Thanks to Della, he gets it in the famous shoulder-rubbing scene.
