OK, here's the gist - name one detail that happens in the episode you're thinking of, and we try to guess what it is. Here's a good one -

The cold opener involves playing softball in the house.

tony_montana

You got it, Mike! Even though Craig did save the day in "Dewey's Dog" as well, since he got the dog to chase him. ;D
And Sam, no I don't use the computer on Sabbath(Saturday). Well, actually I do. I go to a website called amazingfacts.org and watch online sermons by an awesome Seventh Day Adventist(that's what I am :) ) pastor named Doug Batchelor. If your interested, go check amazingfacts out. :)
Anyways, your turn Mike!

NOTE* Changing my previous thing because it was more of a quote then something that belongs in the clue game.

In Francis' first scene in this episode, he is mad at Ida. ;D ;)

Karen, the Wilkerson's neighbor, thought that at a party, she kissed Hal, only Hal didn't have a bald head or earring. ;D

2 | In the CO, Reese goes on a suicide mission (but it's cut off before we see the outcome)
In the C.O., the boys are play-farting with straws. Reese decides to do a number on Lois, but it cuts to the credits, leaving us to imagine what becomes of him. :P

3 | Hal battles one of his fears.
