Episode Summary

EDIT
Greenlawn Street Blues
AIRED:
When Samantha reads Nell part of her essay she is doing on the Chief for school, Nell tells her it would be a good idea to go to the police station and observe her father in his daily routine. When she gets there she observes several different scenarios. One scenario involves Mr. Swackhammer having a plumber arrested for stealing his toilet, which he claims flushes up and not down, since the plumber says he didn't pay for it after it was installed. Another scenario involves a teenage girl that claims her dentist impregnated her while she was under anesthesia, but the Chief realizes it's a fake story and knows that she is only trying to cover up for her boyfriend getting her pregnant and he volunteers to tell the girl's parents which she agrees to. The final scenario involves a mother and father worried about their missing baby in the supermarket. The father of the baby snaps and doesn't like the way the Chief handles the job. However, in the end, the child is brought to the police station by a mother and her daughter who has mental problems and didn't mean to take the baby. The father of the baby tells the Chief to arrest the girl and storms off after the Chief tells him there's nothing he can do. Nell arrives and tells the father of the baby that the Chief is a good person and he is doing his job right. In the end, Swackhammer's toilet, which is full of coffee from the broken coffee machine, sits in the station. The Chief wants to know what to do with it, and Nell tells him and Simpson to dunk their donuts in it.moreless
