Storyline

The girls find their apartment robbed and several items of clothing missing. Officer Norman Hughes takes a police report and he blames the "Milwaukee Masher." Since the MPD is all-male, there are no female officers for a stakeout. Laverne volunteers to be a decoy and Shirley thinks Laverne has ulterior motives. Is Laverne bored, is she a really good citizen... or does she like Off. Hughes? And does the Masher wear Shirley's poodle skirt better than Shirley? Written by LA-Lawyer
