The gang decides to announce the mayor is running for a new term in the zoo, in the front of the recently renovated monkey house. Mike accidentally steals center stage by rollerskating after a runaway pram, although he landed in the sea-lions' pool, as the man who really caught the kid needs to hide. Paul outsmarts Sacey's attempts to expose his fake foot injury to steal sickies. Stuart objects to Carter bringing home his parent's old, sickly, girlish pooch Rags. The mayor was to star in the next press conference with super-model Klum, but the press shifts attention. Written by
