Plot Summary

On his way back from finding out that Old Man Goss has misplaced his ol' salt and pepper suit, Barney spots Fred Plummer sweeping litter into the street and tickets him. Plummer pays the ticket but vows revenge, threatening to get his money's worth the first time he catches Barney out of uniform. Andy learns of the threat and arranges for Mr. Izamoto, Barney's judo instructor, to dress up in Barney's ol' salt and pepper and teach Plummer a lesson by proxy.
