Storyline

When Officer Don lets him take a look at a group of felons behind bars, Dick tells Don he'll bail one of them (Eddie) out and fully rehabilitate him so he won't end up in jail again. Dick takes him home, but he and the other Solomons can't conceal their suspicion toward him. Meanwhile, Harry hasn't read the book he should write a report on for night school. Luckily, Tommy has some sound advice for him. At least, that's what they think. Sally tries to help Mary with her dog problem. Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>
