Storyline

The Hecks parents must react to school assessments of their kids. Axl scored high on aptitude, so his slacking and poor grades are no longer acceptable, but cramming all night with Mike still doesn't do the trick. Brick may a librarian's dream, the only school kid who truly enjoys reading, mean old Mrs. Nethercott, who luckily can't prove vandalism, still threatens to prevent him passing to the next grade unless he returns all missing books, now found all over the Heck home. Sue is the only school kid without a yearbook picture, so Frankie steps up the search for some activity she can join. the principal opens up track running without time threshold, but even a passing deer proves too much opposition fro the eternal failure.

A Dose of His Own Medicine
29 December 2013 | by (Richardson, Texas) – See all my reviews

Betty White had played some bitter characters, one comes to mind was on Complete Savages. She plays Mrs. Nethercott, the school librarian who's nice to every other student, except Brick. She gets after the kid for ruining library books & not returning them. She even threatens him by having him repeat the 2nd grade if he doesn't find those books. So she gives him till Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's birthday to get them back.

What made this funny? Betty White giving Brick a dose of his own medicine when she did the secret word whisper gag (*2nd grade*) which shocked Brick!That episode was totally funny because of those two & O approve of this episode.
