Treena tells Ricky he's smart.
July 28, 2002
Electric Worker (Tim Atwater)
2nd Police Officer (Brian Green)
Approaching the end of their Freedom 35 plan to get rich from the pot Ricky has grown, Lahey plots to get them arrested with a scheme to place Randy in their inner circle as a double agent.
Plot Synopsis Edit
Act One Edit
The next morning, Ricky and Julian discuss the method they will use to get the pot into the prison using the guards. Ricky is upset because he is always broke, and has ratty only clothes for school. Julian and Ricky argue about this while Treena eavesdrops from outside. When Julian leaves, Treena tries to console Ricky about his feelings and convince him that he will get his grade 10.
Lahey brings in the electric company to look at the transformer Ricky has been siphoning power from. Later, he spies Treena hanging out with Ricky and gets angry, wondering where he went wrong with her.
Julian is confronted by Lahey about the possibility that someone is growing pot and stealing power and Julian denies knowing anything. Julian feels that he is keeping ahead of Lahey and they won't get caught.
Lahey and Randy covertly follow Treena as she goes to the store to buy more pepperoni for Ricky. Outside she meets Cory and Trevor and she asks to borrow $25 from them. They suggest she rent them the bike for the money; she does so and leaves the scene. Not being able to hear their conversation, Lahey assumes Cory and Trevor are stealing the bike and he intervenes. Lahey finds out what really happened and then confronts Treena about it back at the park. He grounds her for defying his instructions to not associate with Ricky and Julian but she defends them both. Lahey blames Ricky and Julian for this situation with Treena and decides that he is going to find a way to send them back to jail as soon as possible.
Act Two Edit
Lahey hatches a plan to pretend to call the cops so that the boys will move the dope to a new location. Lahey surmises that he can follow them to the new site and then get a search warrant issued there instead of the at Airstream. Putting the plan in motion, Lahey approaches and physically assaults Ricky for corrupting Treena. When Randy tries to calm Lahey down, Lahey insults him and tells him to wait in the car. Offended, Randy quits and Lahey slaps him in the face. Lahey tells Julian that he's called the cops. Julian doesn't buy it and sends them off the property. The boys decide to move the dope just in case Lahey is not bluffing. They take all the pot and gear to Ray's trailer.
Later, while drinking at Ray's place, Randy comes over with cigarettes and liquor and sheepishly asks to join them. Julian tells him to go away. Randy says he has sworn off all allegiance to Lahey and wants to make friends, so Bubbles and Ricky convince Julian to let Randy join them. They send him to the store for junk food. Then, to help Randy prove his new loyalty, they send him to Sam Losco's trailer to break in and vandalize it while Sam is out. Randy smashes Sam's TV, but Julian wants more, so he instructs Randy to urinate in Lahey's car. He performs this task also.
Hanging out in front of Ray's trailer, Randy mentions he saw a lot of pot inside and Julian tells him to shut up. Ray shouts that he wants all the pot out of his home and Ricky tells him to shut up. Then they hear radio static, and realize that Randy has been wearing a wire the entire time. Julian holds Randy at gunpoint and demands Randy remove his pants. There, Julian finds an apparatus that Randy used to fake urination on Lahey's car. Randy grabs the walkie taped to himself and calls for help. Lahey emerges saying that the police are on their way to Ray's trailer. He leaves, and Julian calls an emergency meeting.
Bubbles suggests they burn the dope, Ricky and Julian veto that idea. At this point, Treena shows up and tells them her father has been on the phone all day with the police reciting the address '1 Bonneview' which is the address of Ray's trailer. She reveals her father's plan of misdirection and surveillance. Quickly, the boys spring into action and switch the street signs and house numbers on Ray's trailer with the trailer at 3 Maple Lake Dr. The cops arrive on the scene and Officer George Green surveys the situation. When the search warrant is produced, Ricky tells him that they are not at the right address so the warrant cannot be executed.
Lahey arrives and George confronts him about the warrant's address. Lahey shouts that that the signs have been switched, but George doesn't believe it. Lahey begs them to check the trailer, but they refuse and a shouting match ensues. Smelling liquor on Lahey's breath, George arrests Lahey and Randy and hauls them away for drinking and driving. Julian says this was a close call and tells Ricky to stop hanging around with Treena, because Lahey is her father.
That night, Ricky talks to Treena about this and she gives him a shirt that she bought for him as a gift. Ricky says he likes hanging out with her, but it's impossible because he's growing dope and he doesn't want her involved. She wishes him well on his schooling and Ricky leaves.
Back at the Airstream, Julian shows Ricky some of the hash they made from the pot, and Ricky asks for time off so he can study for his final exam. Julian says he is proud of him and gives him permission.

"Make like a tree and fuck off."
This episode is also the first use of Ricky's mispronunciation of 'jalapeño' (hard 'j' sound and more main emphasis on the 'la'). A long conversation where Bubbles and Julian try to get him to correctly pronounce it ensues, but he clearly doesn't get the concept.
Lahey's Shit Talk Edit
- Randy: "Cops and dope don't mix, do they, Mr. Lahey?"
- Lahey: "Like shit and strawberry shortcake, Randy."
"How dare you involve my daughter in your hemisphere of shit?"
"You know what a shit-rope is, Julian? It's a rope covered with shit that criminals try to hold onto. You see, the shit kinda acts like grease. The harder you try to climb up, the tighter you try to hold on, the faster you slide down the rope, Julian. All the way to jail."
"Tu et, Bruté?" Et tu, Brute is a Latin phrase often used poetically to represent the last words of Roman dictator Julius Caesar to his friend Marcus Brutus at the moment of his murder
