EDIT
The Trial of George Frankly
AIRED:

George Frankly comes back from a week in the Great North Woods. He has just heard of a robbery at the Next to the Last National Bank three days before. But when he and Kate look at the bank's videotape recording of the robbery, they see the impossible: George is doing the heist. Evidence piles up against George as his preliminary hearing looms. George knows he is innocent, as does Kate. But can they prove it?

      • Fake George: I, George Earnest Frankly, am guilty as charged!
        Judge Hoffman: What?! You admit you're guilty?!
        Kate: George, what are you doing?!
        Fake George: I'm sorry, and I apologize to any of those I may have hurt. My friends, my sixth grade teacher, Mrs. Birk, my scout master, Mr. Hare, and of course, my beloved wife Martha, and our fine children.
        Debbie: George doesn't have any children!
        Kate, Debbie, and Chief Green: (all stand up and point at the fake George) That is NOT George Earnest Frankly!!
        (suddenly, the real George bursts into the courtroom in his briefs)
        George: Will it please the court?! I am George Earnest Frankly, and I've just come outta the closet! (points at Monger) Where that man gagged me and tied me an hour ago while Kate was in judge's chambers!

      • (after the Brothers Karamazoff are arrested and George is set free)
        Kate: Partner, justice has won out.
        Debbie: Congratulations, George. We all knew you were innocent.
        George: Thanks, everybody.
        Chief Green: One thing, George. Next time you take a vacation, do me a favor.
        George: Yes, Chief?
        Chief Green: Take a witness along, will you?
        (the others laugh; George and Kate hi-5)

      • Fake George: So, your honor, members of the prosecution, fellows of my defense, honored spectators...
        Judge Hoffman: Will you please get on with it?! I've got a racquetball game in 15 minutes, and justice will be served.

      • Announcer: (during the Karamazoff brothers' mugshot) The brothers Karamazoff or Karam-ah-zoff, Irving and Jake, were tried and convicted of a 6133: Escaping from prison, a 211: Robbing a bank, a 487.3: Driving a mathematician's car without his permission, a 653: Lying under oath, and a 3.1416: Impersonating a mathematician. They were sent back to prison, and good riddance. They still write to George on a regular basis.
