Plot Edit

Carl has assigned Urkel as part of a police ride-along program. While staking out a wanted suspect in a railroad stockyard, Carl and Steve accidentally wind up locked in a livestock rail car. Eddie — who earlier rejected Carl's offer to participate in the ride-along program — tries to get a modeling career, but is soundly rejected.

Goofs Edit

  • During dinner, a bottle of steak sauce moves around between shots.
  • The exterior shot of the cattle car (an obvious model) does not match interior shots. There is no lantern light visible from the outside; the door has vertical slats outside and horizontal inside; the side slats are open all the way down outside while the bottom half are sealed off inside.

Quotes Edit

Carl: I needed a good laugh.
Urkel: You know, every time you laugh you burn off three and a half calories?
Carl: Maybe I should laugh a little bit more, huh?
