Storyline

Phillip and Vivian are invited on a trip to Palm Springs with Mr. and Mrs. Furth in his helicopter. Mr. Furth suggests that Will and Carlton drive his Mercedes there, but they get pulled over and Carlton's non-stop jabber gets them arrested. At the police station Carlton is dead set on telling the absolute truth but the police don't believe anything they have to say and accuse them of a rash of car thefts in the area. Their phone call yields no help as Mrs. Furth, amid the noise of the party, misinterprets Carton's plea for help as "Getting into Yale." Will attempts to call home, Geoffrey answers but hangs up because he's off duty. Then Will gets the idea of confessing to the thefts so that a news crew will come down and film them in jail, and that Uncle Phil and Aunt Viv will see them on television. It works, and Uncle Phil and Mr. Furth get them released by reminding the police of the boy's rights. Back home Will and Carlton get into a debate over exactly why they were detained. ...
