Fools Die on Friday is the 22nd episode in the series The Adventures of Sam & Max: Freelance Police.
A blimp is hijacked.
 In-Depth Synopsis
Sam and Max are hanging out outside the office when The Commissioner pages them about trouble on a flight from Switzerland. A commercial blimp flight has been hijacked by a crazed madman who threatens to crash it unless his demands are met. They use a small propeller airplane to get on board.
When they make their way to the cockpit, it turns out that the hijacker is none other than their old obsessive fan Lorne. Lorne claims to be forced to do the real terrorist's bidding through an implant in his brain. With another command seeming to come in Lorne acts increasingly hysterical, and the Freelance Police eventually start to evacuate the passengers.
Once the passengers are off Lorne regains some lucidity and warns Sam & Max that the terrorist is forcing him to fly the blimp into the Statue of Liberty. To prevent this, they go to the back of the blimp and pull the plug, rapidly deflating it and sending it crashing into Lorne's funhouse hideout. Lorne is impressed by their apparent deduction and confesses to their never being a secret terrorist controlling him. Once they've capture him and regain control of the blimp though, Sam & Max tell him they never actually intended that, planning to send it into a whole different "raving wacko's backyard" instead.
