School Hard is the twenty-first overall episode of Detentionaire and the seventh of the second season.


"I got a year of detention for a Prank that I didn't even commit and I've been busting my butt trying to track down who set me up ever since. After lots of dead-ends Radcircles dropped his phone behind and I got a hold of it. Problem is it locked up on me right after finding out it activated the whole prank on day one. But something else paid off I met the man who hyponized Cam at my tenth birthday party the Amazing Finnwich and he and Principal Barrage Happen to be pretty chummy could Barrage be Radcircles or be working with him? Time to find out!"

A inadvertant distraction by Sleeping Ugly saves the pair. Biffy suspects that Barrage made the Cleaners go crazy.

Lee and Biffy try to warn the student council and only after Camillio and the others come in and confirms their story do they believe them. Brad begins devising a Plan to get the "President" (Camillio) to safety, informing the student council that, based on action movie stereotypes, they'll all likely be done in by the Cleaners. He dubs Lee as "Bad Boy Seeking Redemption", Tina "Brains and Beauty", and Biffy "Muscle With A Secret Heart Of Gold", among others.

Brad's initial plans are complicated and nonsensical, prompting Lee to propose the simpler solution of using his Key to sneak out of the school through the secret passage in the library.
