Plot: Red declares that there is a crime wave in the area, involving things that go missing. Meanwhile, Mike tells Red that Dalton's birthday is coming up, and Mike got a great deal on a barbecue set, which he plans to give to Dalton as his present. Mike asks Red and the other lodge members to chip in and buy the barbecue. Meanwhile, Dalton complains that another barbecue set was stolen from his store window display. As the crime wave continues, Dalton declares that whoever took the barbecue set is going to pay big time. Naturally, Red assumes that Mike stole it and refuses to believe him when an offended Mike insists that he did nothing of the sort. Mike hides the barbecue in the lodge, where he doesn't think Dalton will think to look, and Red ends up painting the barbecue a hideous shade of yellow trying to disguise it. The lodge members give the barbecue to Dalton, but he says he doesn't need it anymore, because it turns out that Anne-Marie had taken the other barbecue from his store and gave it to him as a birthday present. In response, an offended Mike gives Red such a glare and such silent treatment that it lasts well into the Lodge Meeting at the end.
