The husband is Howie Dickerson, a sort of idiot-savant who unerringly picks high yielding stocks but never invests a penny and only can find work as a caddie. Simms is asked to see an X-rated film to break the lease of the tenant, who never mentioned what kind of movies he was going to show. The lease looks like it can easily be voided, bringing Simms a bonus from his boss, who is the landlord. That is, until Howie runs into the tenant and assures him he has the right to run porn if he wants to. Written by WesternOne1 See less
