Dobie and Maynard's visit back to Central High coincides with the announcement by their old English teacher, Mr. Pomfritt, that he plans on leaving the teaching profession at the end of the week due to it not providing a comfortable enough living for him and his family. This news shakes Dobie and Maynard, who remember him helping them through more than a few messes while they were students. To convince Mr. Pomfritt to stay in the teaching profession, Dobie thinks that bringing successful alumni back to the school for a testimonial party will show him how invaluable he is. An error in mailing the invitations ends up making the testimonial not quite Dobie was hoping, but important news may have a way of spreading. Written by
