Stuart Minkus is the obvious choice for the Geography Bee. However, when Cory finds out that the winner gets to be bat-boy for the opening game of the World Series, he convinces Minkus to drop out.
Minkus tries to fit in with the regular crowd and Cory attempts to become a geography authority. Cory doesn't win; but his efforts prove fruitful as he scores an A on his geography test. Minkus learns a lesson too: trying to be someone other than yourself is just not fulfilling.
Meanwhile, Eric is horrified to learn that his parents are going to the same concert that he and his date are attending..in better seats! Upset at first, he later realizes that he is lucky to have such "cool" parents.
