It's the beginning of a three day weekend for Rob, and his already giddy mood is heightened even further when Mr. Phillips, a federal agent, stops by wanting to use their house as a stakeout post to watch the goings-on of their neighbor, Mr. Gerard. It isn't Mr. Gerard they are after, but his criminal nephew. Laura doesn't like the idea of their house being used for a stakeout, but Rob thrives on the idea of a little excitement. Believing it's for the public good, they agree, and Agent Harry Bond is sent. While Laura generally feels nervous with both Harry in the house and with a criminal possibly in their neighborhood, Rob can't help but get in Harry's way as he tries to act the spy. When a little trouble may finally be brewing at Gerard's house, Rob may have to get involved in the surveillance, as Harry is suffering not only from over-exposure to Rob, but a massive toothache.

The layout of Ritchie's bedroom is all wrong for looking out front of the Petrie house. For one thing, there is an entire guest bedroom blocking it. When Rob and Harry exit the room for the front door, they turn left instead of right, which either puts them in the kitchen or suggests Ritchie's bedroom is approximately right where the kitchen is located.

Harry Bond: This is Thrush.
Rob Petrie: [embarrassed] Hi, Thrush.
Harry Bond: We read you and we'll release all your agents if you just stop playing with our equipment.
