Spring fever hits Cicely big time as the townsfolk await the annual breakup of the winter freeze. The seasonal madness includes the traditional "running of the bulls" -- only they aren't really bulls. Meanhile, the ever-bickering Joel (Rob Morrow) and Maggie (Janine Turner) are suddenly and passionately attracted to each other. Holling (John Cullum) is spoiling for a good fight -- with anyone. Shelly (Cynthia Geary) develops an insatiable appetite for classic literature. And Maurice (Barry Corbin) becomes fascinated by visiting state tropper Barbara Semanski (Diane Delano), in town to investigate a series of quirky petty thefts.
