Judy drops Pete off at work and asks Jim and wife Jean to double date with them for dinner. At work the pair along with Officer Grant become cowboys when they have to herd three cows from an overturned truck. They ticket a cute girl for unsafe bicycle riding. She tells Reed he is a grouch but Malloy is cute. They spot a man who stole a guitar and has a very long list of excuses. A bartender flags them down to handle a bar fight but a retired officer in the bar tells them it is a pickpocket scam. Jim and Jean leave for dinner but spot a gas station robbery. Jim trails the car and lets Jean out to call in the license plate and description while he continues to track them. Police arrive but Jim chases one on foot. It results in him missing dinner and promising to make it up to Jean, once again!
