Episode Summary

The Runner
The gang is concerned that their friend Louis is using drugs, pushed into doing so by the creepy Ross. They wonder whether or not they should tell on him, fearful doing so will make them look like finks. Even though they do the right thing, the other students at school turn against them, as does Ross, who eventually leaves school to be a drug courier for a pair of dealers. Initially, he's happy that he's making a lot of money, but soon regrets his choice when his little sister overdoes on some of the drugs she received from the dealers. Ross vows he's going to turn them in, but the thugs pursue him. He then seeks help from Fat Albert and the gang, which leads to a madcap chase where the bad guys are all wet and arrested by the police. Ross admits his wrongdoing as well and wants to set things straight much to the gang's delight.moreless

        Rudy: Well, I still don't know if I agree with what you did, but just because you don't agree with someone doesn't mean you can't be friends. (The gang all agree on that statement) I even got you a present, Louie.
        Louie: Thanks!
        Russell: It's a picture of Rudy!
        Rudy: It's better than a magazine.
