The Wrong Side of the Law, pt 1 is episode 14a of Season 2 of WordGirl.
WordGirl is arrested for a crime that Eileen was responsible for.
The Pretty Princess Wonderland Workshop has come to town, and some priceless, jewel-encrusted Pretty Princess figurines, courtesy of Reginald's jewelry shop, are on display. But Eileen, wanting to get her hands on the figurines, breaks in and steals them. Meanwhile, Becky, Bob, and Violet are on their way to the workshop, only to arrive at a crime scene investigation. Reginald is having an emotional breakdown, and seems to be very distressed. He says that all he heard of the thief was her "haunting" voice: "Mine, mine, MINE!" Police Commissioner Watson refuses to tell Becky the whole story, claiming he does not have the time, but he does mention that the thief is "a little girl between eight and ten, has super strength, and loves the Pretty Princess show".
Becky decides to investigate herself, and finds a Magic Pony figurine left behind, which she keeps for evidence. She and Bob return to her spaceship hideout, where she "investigates" the figurine, but actually is playing with it. The Police Commissioner calls her informing her about the robbery, and WordGirl tells him all the information she has, leading up to the fact that Eileen the Birthday Girl has done it. But when the police and WordGirl check out her house, all the police see is a cute little girl whose birthday is today. WordGirl investigates the house while the policemen are fawning over Eileen, saying that "this little ray of sunshine wouldn't do anything wrong in a million years". The commissioner realizes that the information about the thief fits WordGirl perfectly, and tells her to empty her pockets. When they find that she has been carrying the Magic Pony figurine the whole time, they think she stole the figurine set, don't believe her stories, and arrest her.

The Wrong Side of the Law, pt 2 is episode 14b of Season 2 of WordGirl.
WordGirl is forced to defend herself against charges that she stole the Pretty Princess figurines.
The episode starts off with the narrator telling a brief summary of the previous episode and WordGirl doing pull-ups in her jail cell. The warden then comes up to her cell and says that he once said "the day WordGirl goes to jail is the day I eat my hat". True to his word, he takes his hat and starts eating it. WordGirl tries to convince him that she doesn't belong here and to help her get out, but he proves to be no help, even saying that he thinks WordGirl doesn't enjoy his company. The warden also says that she needs to stay in her cell until her trial. While they wait, the warden starts eating a hat made of jerky.
Meanwhile, Huggy (who wasn't arrested) tries to fight the villains running amok around the city, but wasn't a match for them, and gave up. Later, at the courthouse, Huggy dresses in a suit and glasses and acts as a lawyer for WordGirl. Someone else enters, and it's none other than WordGirl's adoptive mother, District Attorney Botsford! She says that it's her job to make sure WordGirl goes to jail and gets "punished for her crime". The first witness Mrs. Botsford calls up is Reginald, the keeper of the figurines, who is still having a breakdown. Sorrowfully, he tells his side of the story. He seems to have heart for his figurines, describing them as "poor" and "innocent", and saying that they "trusted him" and "he let them down", and he "doesn't deserve to be a jewelry store clerk". WordGirl objects that since Reginald didn't see the girl who stole them, it wasn't fair for him to say WordGirl did it.
Mrs. Botsford then calls WordGirl to the stand. She asks WordGirl if she was a little girl (yes), if she has super strength (yes), and if she loved the Pretty Princess show (yes, I love it more than anything!). WordGirl's last answer surprised the other court members, adding to the proof that she stole the figurines. WordGirl objects by stating that she knows another little girl who has super strength and loves Pretty Princess (but really, who doesn't), and calls Eileen, who just happened to be at the courthouse, to the stand. WordGirl asks Eileen if she was a little girl (yes, a wittle-wittle girl) and if she loved Pretty Princess (that's my favoritest thing ever!). WordGirl then said that if it was her birthday, she would want a birthday gift, and tempts her with the Magic Pony figurine. Eileen wants it, but WordGirl doesn't give it to her, causing Eileen to shout "Mine, mine, MINE!", grow bigger, and break the roof. Reginald said that voice was the one he heard at the robbery scene, and everyone now knew that Eileen has super strength; a perfect match for the thief description.
A greedy, out of control, and mentally unstable Eileen takes the figurine 'and Mrs. Botsford, and starts rampaging around the city booming "MINE! MINE! MINE! MINE!" at the top of her lungs and almost killing Tobey. When WordGirl catches up to Eileen, she says that Mrs. Botsford is another girl's mommy, and that it's not fair if Eileen has two mommies and another girl has none. Eileen realizes this, and puts Mrs. Botsford down, causing her to shrink back to her normal size. They go back to the courthouse to finish up the case, where the judge says that WordGirl is not guilty and that she could go back to fighting crime. A few seconds later, WordGirl goes and returns with a bunch of villains tied up. The judge remarks that she "works fast".
