Naturally, Calvin makes several asides when presenting a paint can to the judge. The prosecution comes up and presents a picture contrary to Calvin's, and the courtroom takes a fifteen-minute recess.

Calvin uncovers some more contrary evidence (Freewater went on vacation for five days, but the paint job only took four), and uses the Time Pauser to get to his house. There, he uses the MTM to discover that Moe and his GangOfBullies [[ProducePelting threw tomatoes and such at it!]] Taking a picture and grabbing Moe, they return to the courtroom, where Calvin slips his disguise back on and reveals Moe's guilt. He's sentenced to five hours in jail and a phone call to his parents, and Freewater is given a verdict of not guilty.

Unfortunately, Calvin's disguise begins to fall apart, but he easily distracts them. Dad wakes up, and Calvin says they settled out of court. Because of the stench, Calvin rides ''[[OutsideRide strapped on]]'' the car with Hobbes.



** What's more, the prosecution's name is "Tom Adlon Stiles"!

Later, after they get there, Calvin uses the Time Pauser to take hold of Dad's evidence, discovering that Freewater was sued for $5,000 for not paying a house painting service since they were terrible, and that they deliberately destroyed the paint.

Disaster strikes when a skunk that Dad nearly ran over sprays him in response. Never one to turn down a challenge, Calvin disguises himself as an adult, complete with stilts and a voicebox. Once inside the courtroom, he delivers his opening statement:

--> "Ladies and gentlemen of the court, this is a court about facts. No doubt you're going to hear exaggerations and such from both sides, but hey, that's America for ya. Just a tip: listen to nothing but the facts. Got that? Nothing but facts. Facts like, for example, we're indoors. [[SmallNameBigEgo I'm devilishly handsome.]] My client has eyes. All are facts. Yes, eyes. [[PuppyDogEyes The innocent eyes of a puppy.]]"

Calvin's dad reveals he's been hired as Jack Freewater's defense attorney, much to Calvin's amusement. Unfortunately, the trial is at 4:00 Sunday, which is when Mom goes to her barber... and [[NoodleIncident after what happened]] ''[[NoodleIncident last]]'' [[NoodleIncident time]], she's not taking Calvin. Neither Rosalyn and the Dirkins will take him either, so the only choice is for Calvin to accompany his father to the hearing. He excitedly packs, believing he'll be ''helping'' his dad with the case.
