In a parody of a court trial, Spinelli and Randall battle it out after he accuses her of throwing a rock during a dirt-clod war.


In a dirt-clod war Randal accuses Spinelli for throwing a rock at him, which is against the rules. Spinelli refuses it but she won't tell the truth. King Bob decides to end this in court.


  • Animation error: At the beginning of the episode, where the rest of the kids are huddling over Randall, T.J. is drawn with a chubbier-looking face and smaller eyes than usual.


  • Butch makes a very quick cameo appearance.
  • The episode is in the style of the film Roshomon, different points of view of the same event.
  • This is another episode that hints that T.J. has a crush on Spinelli. When T.J. calls Spinelli to tell the truth, she is reluctant at first, though when she looks at him, she says, "Boy, T.J., why do I let you talk me into these things?".
  • When Digger Dave appears in this episode, he's voiced by Klee Bragger. It could be possible that it was Sam who appeared in the episode (as only one digger appears), however was accidentally drawn as Dave.
  • This is the sixth speaking appearance of King Bob.
