Where can I get a clip from a specific Mythbusters
episode to use for a third grade class on the scientific method?

I'm teaching a class on the scientific method on Tuesday and I want to use a clip from the Mythbusters hot water heater episode. I need to bring it on a flash drive (I'm a student teacher and my cooperating teacher says she has Windows Media Player in case that's relevant) and I'd like to be able to edit it down just to certain sections (they're third graders and the class isn't as long as I'd like, plus I want them to do most of the thinking on their own and just show the actual experiment).
I can find bits of the episode on YouTube but I don't know how to download them, and I can't find the whole thing I want on the Discovery Channel website. Is there a simple way to download the clips from YouTube? Is there a different place I can find them and download them? Is it possible to edit whatever clips I get without fancy software or equipment?
Since this is for educational purposes I'm pretty sure that making and editing this copy would not be in violation of copyright, but if it would be a problem I'd like to know that as well. Thanks in advance!
