Storyline

As Rob naps one afternoon, Ritchie and his friend Freddie connect the freckles on Rob's back. Laura and Millie notice that the pattern resembles the Liberty Bell, so Rob reluctantly decides to follow Millie's suggestion that Rob submit it to "Odd but True," which publicizes unusual stunts and physical phenomena and, in exchange, pays the person responsible a $500 prize.
