“Artie, The Strongest Man…in the World”
In this adventure a pay phone has been ringing for 27 years and in the middle of heat wave the people of Wellsville are being driven insane. No one will answer it because they believe it is cursed. Finally, Little Pete decides he has to answer the phone and end this once and for all. Big Pete volunteers at the “Ringing Phone Crisis Center” and is on his own mission to find the intended recipient of the call.
Erica and Kevin argue whether this is a good episode. When does romantic pursuits become stalker behavior?

What happens when you turn on a humidifier and a dehumidifier at the same time? His experiment burns Don’s grass and jeopardizes his father’s 4th of July lawn competition. This results in Little Pete being grounded for a month, but it won’t deter him from tunneling out Great Escape style and getting back his freedom.
