Cassettes for "Harley Takes the Case" from 1988

At the carnival, a lady tells the chief and Al Larson that she saw Steve talking with a man who is standing by the merry-go-round. The chief tries to handle it, but before he can, Al Larson yells at the man, who starts running. The chase is on. When they finally corner the guy, Al wants to kill him. Fortunately, before he can, the man's son runs up - and he looks almost exactly like Steve. Al apologizes, and the chief tells a trooper to take Al home.

Once at home, Al and his wife pray.

Meanwhile, back at the barn, Steve and Officer Harley are trapped under a bunch of rubble. When they realize they're all right, Steve finally explains why he ran away. He feels his dad doesn't care about him. Harley tries to tell Steve otherwise, but Steve thinks Al will only love him if he plays softball. Harley disputes this and tells Steve that it's foolish to run away. Harley knows because he did it once, and it broke his father's heart. Suddenly, they hear noises. They think it might be a rescue team - until they hear growling. It's a pack of wild dogs. Harley tells Steve to cover himself up as best he can. Steve does, and the dogs break in and start to attack. The dogs kick the walkie-talkie over where Harley can reach it. He calls in, telling the chief he has a present for him, and it's trapped under some rubble in the old Gower barn.

Later, after the rescue team arrives on the scene, Steve and Al agree to talk about the softball issue. Al reaffirms his love for his son, then apologizes to Harley. The chief congratulates Harley and offers to buy him a cup of coffee. Harley says "fine" - but first, he's going to call his dad.

Discussion Questions[edit]

  1. Why did Steve run away?
  2. The Bible tells us to honor our parents. Why was it dishonoring to Steve's parents when he ran away?
  3. How could you help a friend who is determined to run away?
