  • Episode Description
  • After Bobby gets rid of soda machines in the school, because he feels they are the reason he is single, he attracts the attention of a girl. When the teachers and Principal Moss put in a ticker advertising energy bars to help pay for a teacher's retreat, Bobby finds this as the perfect opportunity to protest and win over the girl. However, he takes it too far and the students all walk out and riot in the town. Dale wants to put a book together of quotes from the gang, but no one has anything to say.moreless
