The Cam-didate is the second episode of season two and the sixteenth episode overall.


"Ever since I was framed for pulling the biggest prank ever, I've spent every waking second trying to figure out who framed me. Then Radcircles, as he likes to call himself, turns out to be my best friend: Cam. I really wish it weren't true, but here's what I know. Clue one: Cam destroyed the prank footage that showed him switching my bag. Clue two: Trevor saw Cam acting all weird in the rafters during the prank...well, weirder than usual. Clue three: Cam's shoe print matched the potato flakes in the rafters which proved he was up there during the prank. So now that I know Cam is Radcircles, it's time to bust him and clear my name. But how exactly?"
  • 4:21:13PM

With a cheering crowd present, Lee and Camillio are having a fight in the rafters of the auditorium, Lee telling "Radcircles" that it's time they finish this.

  • 8:04AM

Biffy Goldstein and Kimmie McAdams are walking their respective pets, Mrs. Rumplekittykat and Mr. Margolious, to school. Kimmie stating that it's felt like a million years since they walked to school together, Biffy clarifying that's it's only been three years. Kimmie comments on the leash Biffy is using to which Biffy claims that he made it.

Kimmie decides to make Biffy "eat her dust" and kicks some into his face before running off. Lee arrives on seen, taking the "Ninja route" so as to avoid Camillio. Biffy however reminds Lee he doesn't want people to know that he has friends and thus Lee gives Biffy a head start. Arriving at the school Lee discovers that Holger Holgaart has stuffed pancake batter into his ears to avoid listening to Lee talk about Camillio.

Lee decides to drop the whole Camillio/Radcircles issue for now. Kimmie also notes that Brad Von Chillstein is absent, apparently home sick with the cold. Tina Kwee and the returned Chaz Monerainian announce over the intercom that a mandatory assembly is being held in the auditorium.

  • 8:15AM

Principal General Barrage announces at the assembly that election week for the student body president will be shortened to election day, today. Irwin Dexter nominates his fellow Mathlete Beth, and Kimmie and Dick Andrews realize they can't nominate Brad because he isn't there and instead decide to instead nominate Camillio, whom gladly accepts.

Trying to keep things even between Lee and Camillio, Holger also nominates Lee. While at first Lee has no intention to run, Barrage forces the issue upon learning that Lee doesn't want to run. Tina catches up with Lee outside the auditorium, informing him that she just looked up the student charter of rights and learned that if Lee wins the election his year long detention will become null and void.

After Tina and Holger leaves Lee receives a text from Radcircles telling him that he will not win the election. Meanwhile Dick, Kimmie, and Camillio are planning their election campaign. Whereas Camillio wants to run a clean campaign showcasing how cool he is, Dick and Kimmie insist that a dirty campaign is the way to go and wants all the available dirt on Lee that Camillio can come up with.

  • 9:23AM

Brandy Silver meets up with Holger in the halls and requests his opinion on which tie she should use for Camillio's outfit, to which Holger suggests the mice pattern. Holger soon has a panic attack realizing that he's helped Camillio without helping Lee. Holger goes to find Lee to help him and make things even between Lee and Camillio again.

  • 9:30AM

Tina and Chaz announce the election schedule: At 12Noon the meet and greet in the cafeteria, at 4:15PM will be the debates and at 4:30PM the students would vote. Radcircles calls in warning Lee of a commercial, and right on cue, a smear commercial airs, created by Camillio's team, showcasing Lee as a prankster whom if elected will turn the school upside down, earning Lee stares from the rest of the student body.

Kimmie runs into Lee in the hall and fakes getting squirted with ink by him to further his prankster reputation. Barrage finds Lee and informs him that he has detention, despite the fact that he's suppose to be in the cafeteria for the meet and greet. Lee goes to the detention room as instructed and meets up with Biffy, upon learning that Kimmie is Camillio's campaign manager, he decides to become Lee's.

Holger arrives on the scene, desperate to make Camillio and Lee even again, which gives Biffy an idea. In the cafeteria, Camillio seems to be in the lead, despite the Mathletes' best efforts, which includes handing out protractors in the shape of Beth's mouth (which Zed Point Conasty mistakes for a boomerang and feeds it to the Tatzelwurm). Holger however arrives on scene with a laptop uplink to the detention room.

In addition to a rousing campaign speech by Lee, Biffy has taken a page out of Kimmie's book and assembled a smear campaign commercial against Camillio, showcasing his heinously bad foot odour, which grosses out the student body.

  • 12:52PM

Camillio, Kimmie, and Dick attempt damage control after lunch by appealing to the personal tastes of the student body. Unfortunately a second smear commercial from Biffy ruins Camillio's gangster image. Camillio confronts Lee, pointing out that the sleepover picture was a low blow, but Lee in turn points out that Camillio was the one who made the "Lee the Prankster" posters.

Kimmie figures out that Biffy is Lee's new campaign manager based on the "evil genius finger tap" thing he's doing. Kimmie, in turn, raises the stakes by pretending to have turned Biffy down on a date, thus dealing a blow to his reputation. After everyone else leaves Lee receives a text from Radcircles about a joke on one of Lee's cutouts. Spotting Camillio, Lee is led to the conclusion that Camillio sent the joke to Lee.

Holger arrives on the scene, hysterical over Camillio and Lee's arguing, and states that he will only remain friends with whomever wins the election.

  • 3:17PM

Tina announces the latest polls, with Lee in the lead with one point. Kimmie and Dick are concerned that if Camillio doesn't win they'll lose control of the school. The two of them meet up with Camillio in the halls and inform him that should he lose the election, his new in crowd status will go up in smoke. Desperate to win, Camillio takes a accidental suggestion from Holger to reveal Lee's crush on Tina, embarrassing him.

  • 3:32PM

Lee and Biffy plan their next move in the detention room when Holger arrives and blurts out "Cam-Hypnotized-Butterscotch-Monkey-Maybe." Lee clarifies and explains that Camillio has been hypnotized to act like a monkey whenever someone says Butterscotch. Biffy believes that it's the perfect thing to use against Camillio, however Lee believes that it's too dangerous, as Camillio has no self control when in "Monkey mode" and can hurt someone.

  • 4:16PM

At the debates Beth and Lee have already arrived at the debates, Camillio arrives with a spectacular entrance one minute short of having the debate start without him, prompting Barrage to mention that next year, election day is going to be election hour. Camillio announces Lee's crush on Tina which embarrasses them both. Taking the gloves off, Lee says Butterscotch and throws Camillio into Monkey Mode.

Camillio quickly climbs the rafters and is on the verge of falling to his death. Lee at first tries the Queen of Hearts trigger phrase but the cheering crowd deafens Lee's attempts, so instead he cuts a sandbag and uses it to propel himself to the rafters. Picking up where the preview left off, Camillio grabs a empty sack and dumps it over the crowd.

Lee realizes that someone used the Butterscotch trigger phrase to force Camillio to dump the potato flakes over the crowd during The Prank. Lee then snaps Camillio out of Monkey Mode and pulls him to safety, explaining everything that happened him, thus reconciling and repairing their friendship, and lowers them to safety.

The voting goes underway with Camillio winning in landslide, apparently thanks to the monkey routine. Kimmie meets with Biffy to rub in her superiority, prompting Biffy to fake-reject a offer from Kimmie to kiss her, thus striking a similar blow to her reputation.

  • 8:42PM

Once home Lee meets with Camillio online, who's once again dedicated to Lee's efforts to catch Radcircles intending to get payback for hypnotizing him. Radcircles cuts in once again claiming to be Camillio. Luckily, Lee knows better this time, ordering Radcircles to show his face, but this causes Radcircles to cut out with a "Too late" crack.



File:Detentionaire Episode 16 The Cam-didate



  • In the beginning of the show, Cam screams at Lee when they fight. However later in the episode, Cam is revealed to be there because Lee hypnotised him and Camillio screams as monkey as opposed to "AAHH!"
  • When Cam is trying on hats, Brandy rejects the cowboy hat as being too vice presidential. This is a reference to Dick Cheney, former vice president to the American president George W. Bush, who in 2012 began wearing a cowboy hat to try and ward off the possibility of getting skin cancer.
