Something's up with Mr. Chloro, the kids' biology teacher. After a walk in the woods to do his plant-themed podcast, he's acting really smiley and strange. He's also pushing these odd-looking potted flowers. He wants everyone in the class to have one, and pretty soon everyone in the town has one, and they're walking around like very pleased zombies. The only holdout is Sally - fresh off a new dress code violation, she clearly likes to do things differently. That means she's the only one who still has her wits about her and who can save the others (the others who are, incidentally, calling her a "weed" and pursuing her to either assimilate her or worse). Ann, who just transferred to Lizzie Borden High from her private school, doesn't seem as affected by the plants, either. In fact, she steps in and helps Sally try to defeat the mother plant in the woods. The plant coughs up Mr. Chloro's smart phone, which has his podcast video on it showing that the plant doesn't much like diet soda.

Although Mr. Chloro had been drinking from the soda bottle and dropped it, spraying the plant in the beginning, thus it should be almost empty, when Sally picks it up at the end to save Ann (and everyone else), the soda bottle is FULL. See more
Drink it all down for Mama, baby.
