Brain Over Brawn is episode two of the third season in this television sitcom on Family Matters, that originally aired from ABC on September 27, 1991. It was directed by Richard Correll and written by Fred Fox Jr.
It's a battle of brains vs. brawn, as Urkel and a braggart classmate vie for the affections of Laura in a rope-climbing contest. Meanwhile, Carl and Eddie try to fix a leak in their roof against Harriette's admonition to call a qualified profession to fix the leak in their roof proprerly.

An alternate ending is included in syndicated, ABC Family and Nick at Nite reruns, featuring Steve's out-of-control jet pack flinging him above the Chicago skyline.
