Gracie's class visits the TV station. Ryan sees a younger version of himself in chubby nerd Brian, but gravely underestimates that kid. When classmate Xander Tucker seems to bully Gracie, Kelly first forbids Cuck to intervene 'too macho', then grossly abuses the knave herself, which causes well-deserved trouble, while the kids' story proves quite innocent. Gary wins a bet and learns about Marsh's soft spot, a poet reminding him of his dad. Stutterer Montana is professionally outclassed by a schoolgirl.
