Episode Summary

EDIT
Lost and Found
AIRED:
A flu epidemic slims down the teacher population, including the basketball coach, so Joe puts Gus back in charge of the team. When Jack pesters Joe about wanting to be coach, Joe gets him off his back by telling him he's nominated him for teacher of the year. Roz returns to school in the wake of her sister's suicide, and turns to Mr. Turner, her sister's favorite teacher, for answers. Joe and Carol become the newest members of their condo's association, and invite the committee to their place to hold their latest meeting. But when they find out from their neighbors that the entire group hates children and don't want them in the building, Carol announces that she's pregnant, and throws them all out. An enraged Roz attacks a female classmate for saying that Mr. Turner was caught cheating. With the hearing looming, Sara asks Harry if he's having second thoughts about turning him in. Mary Caitlin is hot for Guy, but doesn't know how to tell him she likes him, so she begs Matthew to do it for her. The team have it out with Gus for quitting on them. Overexcited Jack begins treating his nomination like it's the second coming. Roz finds out about Mr. Turner's hearing, but still believes his innocence -- which he doesn't dispute. Joe tells Gus that the coach isn't coming back, so it's up to him to perform a miracle by cooling the angry team down before a big game. Matthew tries to let Guy know about Mary Caitlin's feelings, but Guy mistakenly thinks he's the one who wants him. And Mary Caitlin really gets the wrong idea when she catches Guy declaring his feelings for Matthew. Harry recommends Roz stop passing around a petition to prevent Mr. Turner from getting fired, causing her to have an outburst. Joe and Carol invite their attorney children, Suzanne and Josh, over for dinner to tell them about the condo discrimination and to let them know they're expecting. Roz tears up the petition after Mr. Turner blasts her. To prove to Mary Caitlin that he isn't gay, Matthew blurts out that he loves her, and finds out she loves him too. Jack thinks he'll lose the award after seeing that one of his fellow nominees is in a wheelchair, so he plays up his recent heart surgery in a bid for sympathy votes. After some students make Sara realize she's turned into Jack, she apologizes to Harry for letting the temporary promotion get to her head. Roz locks herself in the ladies room, planning to join her sister via the aid of pills, but ends up flushing them down the toilet. The faculty is tipped off that Roz said she was going to kill herself, so Mr. Turner admits to her and everyone that he lied, in hopes of getting her to come out -- unaware that Roz had already left to go see the championship game, which Gus' team wins. Neither Jack nor the cripple win teacher of the year, however.moreless
