Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Security Salesman


After a day of shopping, the Solomons find their car radio has been stolen. At the police station Sally meets officer Don and finds herself highly attracted to him. The radio however is not found. When Dick is being mugged at an ATM machine it's enough: He loses all faith in humans and the Solomons start looking for ways to secure themselves and their house. Meanwhile, Tommy has been forced by Dick to play basketball, even though he's not exactly cut out for it. Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>
