When Urkel collapses in the living room, everyone thinks he's faking since Laura had just spurned him (again). However, Urkel's appendix is about to burst and he is rushed to the hospital. The Winslows think they'll have a few nerd-free days ... that is, until Carl is shot while trying to foil a robbery; he had managed to apprehend one suspect, but the other is still at large. Because all of the hospital rooms are full, Carl is placed in the only available room - the same one as Urkel! Naturally, the two mix like fire and water as they drive each other crazy. While Urkel is in the restroom trying to cool off, Then, an orderly comes into the room, but he turns out to be the robbery suspect's brother wanting revenge. Just before the bad guy is about to complete his mission, Urkel clonks him over the head with a bedpan. Carl and Urkel apologize and decide to get along for the rest of their hospital stays.

Number One with a Bullet (#4.5)
29 June 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Another sweet episode which gives us some beautiful Carl/Urkel moments, those two are really good friends and in this episode Carl official accepts Urkel's friendship.

We do get to see some great scenes. Including when Carl is being brought into the room, and not only him realizing who his roommate is but also how he is being rolled on the bed!

And one of my favorite parts in this episode are all the beautiful musical tributes Urkel did to Carl's butt.

The scene where Urkel passes out was pretty good too, and I love how he named his appendix
