Episode Summary

EDIT
Nell Goes to Jail
AIRED:
While Nell is on the phone with Angie, her phone dies out and a second later a man from the phone company takes the phone away. She gets fed up and goes to the phone company to get it back, claiming that she did pay her bill, but the man there (Mr. Swackhammer) says that the computer called her "Mrs. Fong", and that she is behind 3 months on it. She gets really aggravated and pulls the phone out and ends up in jail, where the inept Officer Simpson with no typing skills, attempts to fill out a police report. Nell uses her one phone call to call Hamilton Storm, Glenlawn's news reporter, who rushes to the scene, reporting from the "hell hole society calls a jail" that Nell had been wrongfully accused of not paying her phone bill. Mr. Swackhammer then gets a call from his boss, telling him to drop the charges on Nell, and Nell is let free. Nell is then rewarded with a bunch of new phones for the house, and installing them is Mr. Swackhammer, the new assistant to the installer.moreless
