  • A really cool episode.

    For Detention:

    As I said, this is my favorite episode of the first season. It's really cool. Seeing the paper airplane causing havoc and chaos throughout the school. It was fun to watch. The way Cookie, Ned and Mosely getting detention was a bit unfair, though. And the fact that Cookie was dressed up like an unrated rapper, he really does think he's a bad boy. This is part of him becoming who he is not who he is. But the scenes with the bad 8th graders causing a mess out of everything was wrong, but cool to watch and somewhat funny. And seeing more destruction caused by the paper airplane was funny, especially when it struck the Big 8th grade meanie's eye and he threw it at Mr. Sweeny. And I think Mr. Sweeny is a silly name for a teacher. Best episode!moreless
  • To scare kids on behaving in school.

    There are different kinds of teachers:

    -evil, weird, funny, sensitive, mature, immature (yea right), scary, self-defense and all those kind of teachers. I would perfer Immature :P. And yes detention is scary, cauz I know I've been there lots of times. My friend Billy is now made of bones sitting there in the closet, just by himself after 45 years of bullying and smacking he went to the one and only... DETENTION! Dun, dun, dun! So this was a funny episode, and Id rate it a 9.6, and it's a fine example to kids: To scare kids on behaving in school. Peace out!moreless

  • Teachers- Ned, Moze, Cookie have to deal with each of their teachers. Detention- Ned, Moze, and Cookie are given detention because of an paper airplane.


    This one of the first seasons episodes and it one of the series classic episodes.

    Ned finds his teacher McSweeny hard and devises a plan to be nice to him and get a good grade. Moze class has a subsititute teacher and is upset when it disrupts the class. Cookie has puppy love for his hot Spanish teacher and is getting bad grades. Ine the end, Ned learns to study and earn his grade, Moze helps the sub teacher gain respect, and Cookie switches class to avoid failing.


    Another series classic. Cookie has made an paper airplane that flies outta control and is given dentention. As Moze and Ned defend Cookie, they also are given detention. Ned, Cookie, and Moze realize they will be serving detention with 8th graders. Moze, however ends up cleaning erasers. Cookie in his gangsta outfit(worn for a 2nd time) and Ned tries to act tough but it doesn't work. Luckily, McSweeny is monitoring detention and is fooled into tricking the bullies, unknowingly, helping Ned and Cookie escape.

    BTW, we are shown throughout the ep, the paper airplane flying around and creating havoc in the hallways!

    These are series classic mini-eps and they are very good!moreless

  • NOTES (3)

    • Tips:
      - In detention, the teacher is your best friend. Stay close to the teacher (to avoid the bullies)
      - Don't do the crime if you don't want to do time.
      - With the Questioning Teacher, don't be afraid to raise your hand. For the Boring-and-could-the-clock-tick-longer-teacher, do anything to stay awake. For the Distracting teacher, focus on your notebook or keep your eyes on your work.
      - Don't kiss up, just do the work.
      - As a last resort, transfer to another class.

    • Running Gags: Cookie's paper airplane wreaking havoc.

    • The wood shop teacher apparently has a fake arm too. He ended up with it wrapped around a piece of machinery.


    • None: Visual only
      When the students are sitting in Moze's math class wearing protective panchos, you can barely see a student dressed as Gallagher in the back. Another student is dressed like Elvis.
