Plot Edit

Carl and Harriette enter the precinct's annual dance contest, but find themselves challenged by an egotistical fellow officer. He hurts his back while praticing, and heals just in time for the contest. He and Charlie (the other officer) tie for the win, however, right before the dance-off, he hurts his back again while bowing. At the same time, Charlie trips over a chair and hurts his ankle leaving both in pain. Just as Charlie and his wife are about to forfeit, Carl mentions that he wants to settle for a tie (which is proven to be against the rules), and Harriette tells Carl she's proud of him for being a good sport.
