Gary has to serve as jury on a trial and worries about the people he won't be able to save while on court. He tries by all means to get out of jury duty but can't. The case is about a man who is on trial for suspicion of stealing money from his company. Just when Gary (who was picked for foreman) is about to read the verdict the cat enters the courtroom and delivers the paper. The bailiff takes it away, but Gary manages to read a headline that says the man's wife can be the only one who might save him from going to prison and hanging himself.

Meanwhile, the jury is taken to a hotel to work on the verdict and can't leave for any purposes, but Gary manages to sneak out thanks to Chuck. The judge finally decides to have Gary removed from the jury but that doesn't stop him from interfering on the trial and saving the man's life.
