Characters Present


Chas falls in love with a traffic cop, but the Rugrats try to sour their relationship after Angelica tells them that police officers like to steal babies. - Description from Klasky Csupo


Chas invites a female police officer to dinner with him at Didi and Stu's (in spite of her pulling Chas over for less-than stellar driving), and she accepts. Chas tries to go without his glasses in an attempt to seem more attractive, but when he accidentally breaks them he refuses to patch them up with tape feeling he'll look even worse, despite being unable to see. Meanwhile, Chuckie is frightened that the officer will arrest his dad, and works with his friends to make her leave.
