The fire inspector arrives at Gordon's building and discovers a dangerous condition: a door is stuck.
The fire inspector advises Gordon not to put paper bags on the stove. If someone lit the stove, a fire could start (or the pilot light could start one). Then the fireman continues to inspect the building as Gordon prepares to repair the stuck door.
Gordon and Tom tighten the hinge and fix the door. The fire inspector then says that the house is one of the best kept buildings he has seen.
Because the lid of a box won't stay open by itself, Gordon can't put a large beachball in it alone, and Bob can't put a large inflated beach animal toy in it alone. They discover that if one of them holds the lid the other can easily put his article in the box. (EKA: Episode 0234)
