Jamie and Vicki are arrested for spray-painting a wall -- and its owner's $60 shirt.
Jo Marie Payton-France (later of Family Matters) is in top
form as the blustery streetwise police sergeant who poses as a criminal in
lock-up with the kids to rough them up a little with a big lesson. This would
make a fair episode on other conventional sitcoms, but Small Wonder has a domestic robot as a vehicle to do a lot more social plots in very unique ways. Vicki actually seems to've learned the art of apprehension and timidity.
Notable scene: Machine-gun Brissette cutting up.
