Things are disappearing from the set: Ross' headphones, Christine's mic, set risers, cue cards, most of the water buckets, Christine and Ross' clothes, the last studio camera and eventually Christine herself. Who's doing it? It's a mystery of theft and destruction. Kevin is guilty of only stealing a kiss. Rodney looks into it, donning a Sherlock Holmes outfit, but discovers only his own fingerprints. The firing squad can't shoot Jono because the official government firing post, to which he must be tied, goes missing (as well as all the squad guns). Intruders vandalize the dungeon rack. Patrons knife up the theater seats. Burglars steal all the classroom exam papers for the year. Abductors take Barth's burger mix. Robbers strip Lance's home nearly bare (taking all but his kid's unfinished homework). With everyone longing for justice, retribution goes perhaps too far when Rodney gets spanked at school for stealing two bases in a baseball game. Written by statmanjeff
