Sweathogs and honor students unite!

"One Flu Over the Cuckoo's Nest" finds a flu epidemic sweeping through Buchanan High, reducing Miss Fishbeck's class of honor students to just Judy Borden (Helaine Lembeck) and Todd Ludlow (Dennis Bowen, fourth of five appearances), so Mr. Woodman has no choice but to combine the straight A's with the remedials in Kotter's classroom. Washington figures that if the newcomers are academically enriched, that makes the Sweathogs unenriched! Kotter's questions on American history find the honor students raising their hands every time, the Sweathogs looking on in amazement. The answer to one question is Amerigo Vespucci, and the Italian Barbarino knows exactly who he is: "that was Chef Boyardee's maiden name!" Former Sweathog Kotter comes up with a way to even the odds, by choosing subjects that his students hold dear - Washington being a great basketball buff, Horshack a movie buff, and Barbarino expert in keeping two dates at the same time! This time Epstein comes up with a note that is perfectly genuine, 'the film flam man' reduced to turning in his first legitimate excuse in 11 years!
