On the Lam is an episode in the Hey Arnold! TV Series.
Mr. Simmons shows his class a rocket-launching experiment with baking soda and vinegar. Harold wants to launch the rockets, but the bell rings before Mr. Simmons can supervise him. Harold, Sid, and Stinky then steal all the rockets, baking soda, and vinegar from the science closet. Using Stinky's Louisiana hot sauce with the other ingredients, they launch a bunch of rockets into an old police station building just as Ernie dynamites and blows up the building, causing Harold, Stinky, and Sid to think they blew up the police station.
They run into Arnold's basement and try to hide there, but Stinky accidentally reveals what they did to Arnold, and they devise a plan to get to the trainyard, hop a boxcar, and go down south to live with Stinky's grandmother. If they cant find her, they will disguise themselves and become hobos. Harold ties Arnold up and gags him to stop him from ratting them out. Harold's parents, especially his mother, worry about Sid's, Stinky's and Harold's disappearances.
Harold, Stinky, and Sid get on the bus to the trainyard looking at multiple cops in the process. Arnold frees himself and tells his grandpa and Ernie of what has happened to Harold, Stinky, and Sid. Harold, Stinky, and Sid make it to the trainyard, but their parents, Arnold, and the police catch up with them. Harold, Stinky, and Sid sob, saying that they didn't mean to blow up the police station. Ernie then corrects them that he did it. Mr. Simmons then comes in and tells them that they will be punished for stealing from the science closet.
- When baking soda (sodium bicarbonate, HCO3) and vinegar (acetic acid, CH3CO2H) come into contact with each other, a great deal of carbon dioxide gas (CO2) is suddenly produced. If allowed to escape, this can be used to propel a rocket. If confined, it can explode with great force.
- The plot is similar to the SpongeBob SquarePants episode "Life In Crime" because someone thought they did something bad and they didn't really do it.
- This episode is the second appearance of Sid's mom and Stinky's mom, the first being "Parents Day".
