Description (Plot)[]

  • Lee Ping's Bedroom/HQ

"This is where a prank I never did scored me a year of detention, A Nigma High. I managed to find out set me up VP Victoria and Lynch but after that everything got covered up. Principal Barrage, who totally saved me and Tina, got taken away then any trace of him erased. I'm sure that Kimmie's mom, the one that busted VP Victoria, was behind it so who's side is she on? No clue but Biffy found out she owned the building where the brainwashing phones were made. We both snuck into her house to look for clues but got caught. Now Kimmie's mad at Biffy and boy is he mad at me. But it wasn't a complete loss, Buttenford 704 14-45. Don't know what it means but since Kimmie's mom probably knows where Barrage is something tells me if I crack the code, I find Barrage!"

Lee finally catches up to Barrage at the school, wiping out on a hot dog cart, prompting everyone to cheer his name.

Bradley Von Chillstein questions Dick Andrews on why everyone likes Lee so much more then him, but according to Chaz's polls Lee is still the most popular guy in school. To this end Brad devises another get popular quick scheme, which do to being based on a vampire movie is likely doomed to fail. Barrage announces that now that he's back class is back on, and orders everyone to their classrooms.
