During the court's adjournment, some of the Kids horse around on set and one ascends the bench to lampoon Judge Trudi. Donovan discovers them and chases the Kids off the set.
Counsel for the Plaintiffs encourages Hansel and Gretel to keep up the pressure. A Talent Agent appears and introduces herself to the Plaintiffs; she alludes to the millions to be made by publicizing their story. The Stagehands echo the sentiments of the Talent Agent.
The Audience Kids and Jury Kids enter and reprise the merits of Kids Court. Donovan again yells at the Kids to "shut up"; Judge Trudi once again admonishes him and the Security Guards to show more decorum.
Judge Trudi asks Counsel for the Plaintiffs to conclude his case. The Counsel, Barbara Strother and the Plaintiffs give a quick review.
Continuing the re-enactment, Barbara Strother (as the Wicked Witch) meditates on the many delectable ways she could prepare the two Plaintiffs for dinner. Yummy!
The Plaintiffs describe their miraculous escape from the Wicked Witch's cage, and the means of her demise. The Audience Kids and Jury Kids are thrilled.
Judge Trudi is not amused. She declares that the Jury will now hear the case for the Defense.
But first, yet another word from yet another sponsor: two ambulance-chasing lawyers, backed up by the Stagehands!
Donovan swears in the Defendant (the Stepmother). Counsel for the Defense introduces her to the Jury.
The Defendant laments her unsuccessful efforts to nurture the ungrateful Plaintiffs.
Counsel for the Plaintiffs conducts a hostile cross-examination of the Defendant.
Counsel for the Defense introduces the celebrity pop stars Johnny Strepp and Britney Smears to re-enact the Defendant's version of events: the Plaintiffs ran away during a nature walk. Frantic objections by the Plaintiffs and their Counsel are overruled by Judge Trudi.
Counsel for the Plaintiffs indignantly calls the Defendant's re-enactment an insult to the court; the Audience Kids and Jury Kids vehemently and raucously agree. Things are not looking good for the Defendant!
Counsel for the Defense calls one more witness; this is news to Counsel for the Plaintiffs.
But first, one last word from one last sponsor: the makers of an exercise aid for that most neglected body part!
Counsel for the Defense calls her last witness: Mrs. Agnes Patterson, an invalid who immediately recognizes the Plaintiffs as the two thugs who ransacked her little candy store and gift shop in the woods, and locked her in a giant freezer.
Agnes Patterson's testimony is backed up by a video tape from her CC TV, which is shown to Judge Trudi and the Jury Kids. Judge Trudi declares "case dismissed" and instructs the court officials to arrest the Plaintiffs and put them on trial in next week's episode.
The Talent Agent reappears, delivers her spiel to the newly-exonerated Defendant, and gives the protesting Plaintiffs the brush-off. Everyone else claims that they've got a salable story, too.
The Defendant asserts that Everyone Has A Story. The Talent Agent, Dononvan, Agnes Patterson, the Counsels, Barbara, Johnny, Britney, Judge Trudi, the Audience Kids, Jury Kids, Security Guards and Stagehands all join in.
The taping of the TV show episode is over. The Floor Manager and Assistant Producer thank their generous sponsors and reiterate what a great show Kids Court is. The whole cast agrees.
The encore is an ode to the Gingerbread House, sung by the whole cast.
