Andy, Goober and Emmett need a fourth for their bowling team temporarily and they reluctantly agree on Howard Sprague. He doesn't have a lot of experience so their expectations aren't too high but at the big match against the blowhards from Mount Pilot, Howard can do no wrong. With only one frame to go, Howard is still on his way to a perfect game. Just then, the power goes out forcing the end of the game to be re-scheduled for the next night. In the interim, Emmet and Goober make a bet with their opponents and now feeling under pressure, Howard has difficulty keeping up. Now worried that they will lose their money, Andy tries to get the other team to call it off. Written by

When Howard bowls his make-up frame the following evening, his practice shots are edited out-of-sequence. The bowling takes place on AMF Streamlane equipment, featuring the triangular "Pindicator" on the panel above the pins. A Pindicator shows what pins are still standing after the first ball. On the first throw, all ten pins are lit. On the second throw, the Pindicator is blank. This sequence should have been edited the other way around. See more
