Our 'Cops' Is On! is the 12th episode of Season 2 of My Name Is Earl, and the 36th episode overall. It's a trip down memory lane for Earl, Randy, Joy, Darnell and the Crab Shack regulars when they remember their 15 minutes of fame watching a 2003 repeat of the TV show "Cops", which was filmed in Camden County. Watch this just reveals more problems to add to Earl's list.

- Randy: Hey, can you chase me? 'Cause the chases always make it on Cops. Don't chase me too hard, 'cause I'm loaded down with this TV. 'Course, you probably can't run too fast, carrying that camera, either. Want to just put our stuff down and chase each other?
