"Getting framed for the biggest prank in history; bad enough. Having to break out of detention every day to find out who set me up; now that's the tricky part! Thought I cracked the case when I got the Prank Master Mind's phone, now I could find out who the prank mastermind Radcircles was right? Wrong! Access denied! Kinda like the secret passage way in the library suddenly under renovations. Someone's on to me and their locking me out! Whatever it is Barrage is up to something his henchmen are robots and he destroyed our phones when we messed up school inspection but I got Radcircles phone back just in time, and it will be cracked!"

Camillio is also planning on asking one of the Cheerleaders Tony Williams on a date but Brandy advises against it. Camillio thusly offers a trade all of his studying secrets for everything she knows about Tony. Meanwhile Lee is being introduced to the psuedo tech lab the group has set up, Nadene explaining that she found the place during the Bezerk Cleaners incident and welcomes Lee in with open arms.

Holger uncovers the headless body of the Cleaner that Lee attacked also during the Bezerk Cleaners incident. Lee questions why they have the Cleaner, jokingly suggesting that Irwin is planning on turning it into his Prom date. The group explains that they're trying to make a complete Cleaner so that they may figure out how they work and prevent another incident like before.

To this end they ask Lee to get the head for them, seeing as how he's the one who knocked it off. Lee agrees on the condition that they hack Radcircles phone for him, With Holger staying behind to make sure Irwin doesn't sabotage their efforts.

  • 12:01PM

Lee and Biffy are discussing the Cleaners, Biffy points out that the only one who knows what happened to the Cleaners is Barrage whom is working on a "it never happened" basis.

Lee calls Ruby with the plan on his way to Barrage's office.

Ruby goes through with her end of the plan successfully revealing a secret passageway in Barrage's office which Lee is able to access with The key and enter the underground Labs.

  • 12:16PM

The group has thus-far failed to crack the code, learning that the encryption is just a endless loop of numbers with no pattern. Though Irwin claims that he sees a pattern revealing it would mean helping Lee and thus refuses, Holger thus challenges Irwin to a dance off: if Holger wins Irwin has to crack the code and if Irwin wins Holger has to stop dancing for the rest of the school year.

Meanwhile in the Lab Lee has descreetly followed Barrage to the storage room, Barrage claiming that once he has them all back he'll make them new and improved. Lee's attempts to Contact Biffy are met by loud feedback catching Barrage's attention. Luckily the Tazelwurm arrives on scene and distracts Barrage away from Lee. Camillio meanwhile has irreparably broken his phone and throws it away in anger.

Brandy arrives and questions Camillio on whether or not he's gotten his date with Tony yet. While Brandy is still firm in her belief that Tony and Camillio are a bad mix. Tony herself soon proves her wrong when she finally catches up to Camillio and reveals a mutual attraction to him, resulting in a shouting match with Brandy. Lee grabs the head and the Tazelwurm directs him to another secret passage way.

Meanwhile Holger and Irwin are continuing their dance off, both out of breath but still unrelenting in their pursuit of victory. Lee meanwhile follows the tunnel to Room 113b in the underground Lab, which he learns is also the brainwashing room, and also learns that there are also plans for a save the rain-forest themed dance. Finally Lee spots a machine that is matching up students with each other, such as Camillio with Tony and Brandy with Dick Andrews.

Lee attempts to get proof with his cellphone camera only to discover that it's out of power. Irwin meanwhile finally trips up thus forcing him to reveal the code which he explains is a simple Radius Circle therum, which speeds up the group's progress significantly. Picking up where the preview left off the Tazelwurm saves Lee and lures Barrage into the room whom since he lost control of the Cleaners enters a fight with them.

Lee escapes with the head and uses the Library tunnel to get it back to the Geniuses whom crack to encryption revealing the password as 7327. Irwin opens up the head and notes that it has some new circuitry, meaning that whoever was in control of the Cleaners isn't anymore.

  • 8:09PM

Camillio calls Lee with the good news that he got a date with Tony, which makes Lee remember the machine which also matched them up. Before Lee can connect the dots Radcircles calls and Lee taunts him first before turning his computer off and ending the episode with Lee delving into all of Radcircles secrets via the phone.
