There are days when I consider this episode as perhaps my favorite TZ episode; I watched it again as the first one I saw during the last TZ Marathon on SyFy.  There was a period about half-a-year ago when I suddenly had the compulsion to watch it multiple times. I think it represents the ultimate sample of that one category of TZ episodes which closely examine the human condition.
