@Tique. Maybe whoever was willing to play poker with him?

 

This epi remimds me of The Bad Seed. I should look up the year the first version of that film was made.

@Pearlee  I knew that was the thinking behind the statement but the reality is no one even came with the lieutenant in what seemed to have been a condolence call. Before leaving he extended an invitation to join him and the guys for a game of poker. The guys may not have even known Harry was invited but I guess they really had no say-so since the game was at the Lt.'s house. The "friends" is actually an assumption.

That's true, @Tique --  I had the same idea as @Pearlee , that the other friends were the other players.  But you're right, we don't really know if they'd be on board the way his pal David Sheiner, the Lt., was.  Just an (unfounded) extrapolation on my part!   Perhaps though the Lt. wouldn't have set up the poker session if he thought any of the other guys would raise a fuss or embarrass Harry?  He seemed pretty shrewd.

 

@Pearlee,   hubby shouted the same thing on viewing this episode--  "Bad Seed"!!

You have indeed, @Pearlee !  And, just like you all do, he fairly often gives me a whole other perspective to contemplate in the episodes...

I just assumed it since he was invited to play poker. Can't imagine spending an evening together if others didn't want him there. And usually poker games include at least four players.

The Bad Seed was on Broadway in 1954 just prior to the movie.

Per IMdb the movie The Bad Seed was released in Sept 1956, ten years before The Fuge epi.
