Storyline

Dobie being at home sick in bed with a head cold affects two other people. First, Zelda, who supposedly has eyes only for Dobie, decides to hit on new student Nate Gahagan, as Dobie not being around shows her that she needs a back up if something were to ever happen to Dobie. And second, Maynard, who has never told a lie, decides to lie to Mr. Pomfritt about why he doesn't have his history assignment completed. It isn't complete since Dobie has always done his homework. The result of the lie makes Maynard reevaluate the pros and cons of lying, eventually deciding to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Maynard, however, takes the truth telling to an extreme, and in the process alienates everyone around him. Seeing what telling the whole truth has done but still believing that telling the truth is an honorable thing, Maynard decides to take a drastic measure to protect his values while not hurting the people he loves.
