As you can see,

Lynn never breaks her dog's rhythm.

She uses rapid-fire, multiple disks,

throwing them high to display

Muffy's wonderful coordination and agility.

A terrific exhibition

by last year's runners-up.

Next up, Judith Lynman and Rocky.

- Watch how Rocky doesn't take off...

- Watch this one,

Wow! Let's try it,

Come on, Bruiser, give it to me, Drop it,

Let it go, Bruiser, Let it go,

Let it go, Come on,

Strong toss, and he catches it!

Go on, Bruiser, get it, Get it,

Easy, even toss, and he grabs it.

Go! Get it, Bruiser,

Wanna get it? Look! Look!

Jump, Bruiser! Oh, man!

Winner of the 1978 South Florida

Frisbee Dog Championship

is Judith Lynman and Rocky!

I'm gonna teach you real hard,

All right, boys, let's go,

What do you say?

That dumb dog will never

learn to catch a Frisbee,

He will so, and don't call him dumb!

How about retarded?

Some day he's gonna win that


Don't make me laugh,

All right, guys, I guess,,,

You know, Bill,

I don't really feel like cooking tonight,

You don't have to cook, We'll get

in the boat and get some hamburgers,

Guess what,

David's got the hots for Jennifer Bradley,

- Shut up, you dehydrated pizza face,

- Dad, he's knuckling me!

David! Just stop provoking

your little brother, please,

- But, Dad!

- No, really!

That's the last I wanna hear from both of

you, Now give us a break,

I can't believe this,

Dad, can I play at Billy's?

Yeah, I guess so,

Just look out for the fireworks,

Make sure you be back before


Give me that,

- Weasel!

- Dork!

- Butt-face!

- Scuzz-bucket!

You'll never see your ninth birthday,

I promise!

I wish you two

would try to get along,

- He's a jerk,

- Ah, come on, it's just a phase,

- He'll grow out of it,

- If he lives that long,

Is that any way to

talk about your little brother?

No, I guess not,

Just try and remember

you're the oldest, all right?

All right, all right,

- Hi, David,

- Hi, Jennifer,

Hi, Jennifer,

- Finally!

- What took you so long?

Hey, think fast!

Honey, stay out of the refrigerator,

We're going out to dinner soon,

Don't worry, I'll be hungry,

- Come on, boy,

- Do you know how to open these?

- Yes, I do, dear,

- Thank you,

On the fourth

of July, 1978, an American Top 40 extra.

- David,

- Dad!

- Aren't you gonna watch the game?

- I was just,,, watching the boats,

Oh, Yeah?


So, you do have a crush

on Jennifer Bradley,

Nah, not really,

I barely even know her,

Have you ever tried talking to her?

How're you supposed to talk to girls?

It's impossible,

Well, you just have to try

to strike up a conversation,

Hi! How you doin'?

That's a nice bike,

If you're gonna learn to swim,

you just gotta jump in the water,

- I guess,

- David? Don't forget to feed Bruiser,

I won't,

Come on, Bruiser,

Good boy, That'll make you big and strong

so you can win that championship,

David? David,

Oh, would you go meet Jeff?

The Johnsons said he left

about five minutes ago,

- He's eight years old, Mom,

- I know,

But I don't like him going

through the woods alone,

I think he can make it

a half-mile on his own,

Now, you hurry up,

And we're gonna get some burgers

and we're gonna set off

those fireworks of yours,

- OK?

- OK,

Come on, Bruiser,

What is it, macho man?

Not afraid of a little wind, are you?

See, Bruiser?

What you gotta do is be a take-charge guy,

That's what girls like,

Come on, boy,

Come on,

Wanna know my real problem?

I don't know what I want out of life


As a young dog, you might find that

hard to understand, but,,,



Get back, Jack! I've got a gun!

- Oh!

- Gotcha! Gotcha!

I'll kill you!


What is it, Bruiser?

Come on, boy,

We'd better get home,


Bruiser! Here, Bruiser,

Bruiser? Here, Bruiser,

Open up, you little punk!

Do you hear me?

I said open up!

- Who are you?

- Who are you?

Uh, I'm David, I live here,

Think you have the wrong house, dear,

- Where's my mom?

- I have no idea,

Oh, are you lost?

Hey! Where do you think you're going?

Now, just a minute,

You've made a mistake!

Mom? Dad?




What's the problem, son?

Now, calm down, son!

Now, nobody is going to hurt you,

What's your name?

Where do you live?


Where's my mom and dad?

Janet, call the police,

And because of that,

everything's chaos here,

You're gonna have to process this,


are investigating what has caused

power blackouts in sections of two


Emergency generators are in operation

at Lauderdale General Hospital.

Not hungry, huh?

The electricity should be reinstated...

Is my dad coming yet?

Phil? We ran his name,

and the computer came up with this,

Oh, good, A missing person report,

"David Scott Freeman,

brown, Eyes: brown,"

"Last seen wearing blue polo shirt

with white stripes,

blue jeans and white sneakers,

carrying a blue knapsack,"

- Have we located the parents?

- Yes, but Phil, look at the date,

What about it?

Must be a typo,

I ran it through the computer

three times, That's no mistake,

- He was declared legally dead,

- Who's dead?

No one's dead, David, Come on,

Let's start putting this puzzle together,

Now, David, just a few more questions

for our paperwork, OK?

- How old are you?

- I already told you, Twelve,

All right, And what is the date today?

It's the fourth of July,

- What year?
