Bill Stewart wakes up in a nice hotel room with no memory of who he is or what he's doing there. Through interviews with the hotel staff and split second flashbacks, he manages to piece together that he's probably there because of a business conference organized by the head of a chemical company. During his hotel investigation into his identity, he finds an ally in Cassie Wilson, a girl he seems to have spent the previous night with. However, things escalate when she gets abducted in front of the hotel in broad daylight and Bill finds an intruder in his hotel room, who immediately tries to kill him. The episode seems to have been a pilot for a show loosely based on Hitchcock's film of the same name.
