Synopsis: There is a crime spree in the neighborhood. Steve and Marcy buy a Doberman after their house is robbed, Al and Peggy buy a gun to protect themselves. A noise in the night tests both defenses.

Muldoon: Thomas Hill

References: Steve and Marcy's dog wasn't named after the actor Bela Lugosi, but after the New York feminist politician Bella Abzug who was very active in the seventies and known for her pugnacious attitude and large hats. She was a Democrat. However, in "Al on the Rocks" (0704), Marcy says she is a Republican (she repeats that statement in "Pump Fiction" (0925)). The episode title refers to the second line in the US #1 song "I Shot the Sheriff".
