(Mr. Ernst returns to his office beaten and battered)
Jake: What happened? You said you were going to have a talk with the Bigalows.
Mr. Ernst: Well, thats how it started out, but apparently the Bigalows are a fairly excitable bunch. I somehow said something to upset them I guess because before I knew it I was lying down in the dirt. Mr. Bigalow was standing over me threatening to punch my lights out. You got into a fight with Mr. Bigalow?
Jake: Why didn't you just talk to Roy's mother.
Mr. Ernst: I didn't think that would work.
Jake: Why not?
Mr. Ernst: She was the one holding me down.
Jake: I'm suppose to fight a guy whos mother could probably beat me up. Forget it, no way!
Mr. Ernst: This is bigger than a fight, its a question of the Ernst family honor. Remember the Ernst family motto?
Jake: We like Math.
Mr. Ernst: No, other one. An Ernst never backs down.
Jake: I don't remember that one.
