It's 20 below zero in Chicago but Gary still has to rescue people around the city, even if the paper doesn't bring any important news. Plus, Chuck temporarily moves in to Gary's place after the heat in his place goes down, which is just another reason for Gary to be out of the house.

He keeps running into a homeless kid, who is later featured in paper saying he froze to death. Now Gary has to find the kid, who got stuck under a pipe of an abandoned building. They both get locked there after the door is blocked, and now they rely on Chuck to save them from freezing to death.

Goof: When Chuck Fishman puts away his leftover food to save some of it for Gary, the Cat is eating from it. When Chuck chases the cat away from the food, the cat jumps off from the table to the chair, following a can of cat food in the hand of a crew member.
