A giant heat wave comes to Elwood City and causes a power failure, leaving Arthur and D.W. without TV or air conditioning. The Molina family doesn't mind the blackout...what is their secret?
The episode opens with Dr. Jake talking about the rising temperature. Arthur makes a glass of lemonade and pushes D.W out of the way to get to the air conditioner.

- When D.W. is cooling herself in front of the air conditioner, Arthur brings a glass of lemonade to her which contains two ice cubes. D.W. asks if there are still some ice cubes left in the freezer, and says, "Things have a way of disappearing in that freezer." This may be a reference to the disappearance of D.W.'s snowball back in the Season 1 episode D.W.'s Snow Mystery.
- The blizzard from the Season 4 episode The Blizzard is mentioned in this episode.
- D.W. says that she will miss the Mary Moo Cow Special. This may be a reference to the Mary Moo Cow Show being cancelled back in the Season 5 episode The Last Of Mary Moo Cow.
