Cory and Shawn are left alone in the room of the newspaper editor. Shawn sees this as his chance to really make a name for himself.
When the paper comes out the next day, the headline reads "New Principal is Weeny". When the prank is passed off as a typo, Shawn repaints Mr. Feeny's door to match the headline. Mr. Feeny knows that Cory knows who did it. Cory must now rat out his friend or pay the price.
Cory feels bad but refuses to turn Shawn in. Mr. Feeny punishes Cory but appreciates his loyalty to a friend. Mr. Feeny tricks Shawn into confessing; and assures him that he will be watching him for the rest of his high school career.
