It Sure Seems Like It to Me
Leslie still hasn't learned her lesson and continues to tell stories. However, this time one of the stories may actually be true!
This time she gets into trouble because of her exaggerated stories - especially with a tale of how she gave her mother's new umbrella to a cowboy riding a purple fire engine. The catch? The cowboy story turns out to be true!

- This episode is both a sequel and a remake, being a remake of #FP05: “You're Not Going to Believe This” and following up on the events of the previous episode, #43: “Back to School”.
- Will Ryan's characterization of Mr. Gutwrench in Leslie's fantasies sounds somewhat like his later character Harlow Doyle, while his portrayal of the "real" Mr. Gutwrench, Mr. Garrison, sounds like a bumbling version of Eugene.
- Lucy compares Leslie to the Girl Scouts, the "Boy Who Cried Wolf" and Mother Teresa, while Leslie compares Lucy to Benedict Arnold.
QuotesLucy Cunningham-Schultz: So let me get this straight. A cowboy with a big, floppy hat and silver spurs rode up to you on a purple hook-and-ladder fire engine, and asked to use your mother’s new umbrella?
Leslie: Yeah, that's it.
Lucy Cunningham-Shultz: Well, you're not exactly a Girl Scout, you know. I mean, you make the "Boy Who Cried Wolf" look like Mother Teresa!
