  • Episode Description
  • Al is very upset because Harvey won't perform his death-defying stunt on the show. A pet psychologist comes over, but makes it worse. Soon, it is time for his stunt. Harvey won't jump off the building. (That was the stunt.) Al gets so mad at Harvey that he starts calling him names. Harvey locks himself in his house. The Hooded Avenger comes over and tells Al that he should apologize to Harvey. Al does just that, and Harvey feels much better, and does the stunt.moreless
