Older Pete learns something about himself, and its not pretty.
The class is set to take a field trip to a local dairy. This means that the students will have to hop on a bus, which for some reason, always makes a change in a person's personality. It is like something changes as soon as the bus makes an morning trip to a place off the school campus. And we are about to see the changes that such a trip can make.
During this trip Ellen has received a note from a secret admirer stating that he would reveal himself by sitting on the bus next to her. Even though Big Pete and Ellen are just suppose to be friends, we all know that is not the case. Pete becomes highly jealous and will not move from sitting next to Ellen. This causes a riff between the two. And when Pete has to ride in the back of the bus next to Endless Mike, it looks like the entire structure of the earth has turned Topsy-Turvy. Enemies have become friends and friends have become enemies. But Pete will learn something about himself on this trip, something that he will not like.
There is much going on in this episode. From bus driver Stu's paranoid personality to the a student singing cabaret nightclub songs- this show makes many turns. But all-in-all this episode hits the nail on what teenagers experience in similar situations. There is even some adult type humor in this show that probably would not make the cut on today's shows. A nice episode with a good moral story told in a way that a teenager understands.
