Sometime you have to stand up for what is right.

As we progress to halfway through the first season, we find the two Pete's both having a dilemma. Big Pete was distracted in history class and failed to hear that there was a big test today. Now Big Pete is caught off guard and is thinking of a way to pass the test. Little Pete is having his gym taking away by a neighboring school that wants to use the gym for practicing dodge-ball.

Big Pete is so nervous about the upcoming test that he will try anything to study in the last fifteen minutes since learning of the test. He first tries to read - then borrow someone's book- then takes the drastic approaching of a large dose of sugar but in the end it fails. And when he learn that the janitor of the school failed the same history test, he has no other option but to cheat. But he will find solace from a very unlikely source.

As for little Pete, he has his classmates behind him as they stand their ground for the gym. But as time progresses it will come down to where little Pete is standing alone. His options is to give-in to the other schools demands or keep fighting to the very end. Little Pete has a decision to make.

A very nice story about having to stand up for what you feel is correct. The show had many fast gag scenes and also some under the table indications that seemed to be for a more adult type situations. Overall the episode delivered another entertaining show that was enjoyable. The episode did leaves us hanging about the strange ending with Emma the lunchroom worker but I can only guess that time was a factor.
