although i didnt watch the episode when it aired, i watched it today on the internet i loove this episode i thought it was great besides the car scene...i thought that was a little much, running and hiding in the parking lot would have been a better idea then having a blind man drive the car.

hiding wouldnt have worked, small lot, and staying on foot hed have caught them easily. actually was a good idea, would get plenty of attention from any one near by.
