Wendell subs in Nicholas' class and makes him the teacher's pet. Nicholas' classmates are jealous of the preferential treatment he is getting so they begin to taunt him relentlessly. In order to get back into his friends' good graces, Nicholas plays a practical joke on Wendell. His classmates stop harassing him but Nicholas feels very guilty about pulling the prank. The next day he goes to Wendell and admits he was the one who played the practical joke. He says he only did it so his classmates would stop teasing him.

      • Wendell: Arnie, spell extraterrestrial.
        Arnie: Extraterrestrial. E-X-T-R-A-T-E-R-R-E-S-T-R-I-A-L, Extraterrestrial.
        Wendell: Wrong! Arnie: What?
        Wendell: Everyone knows extraterrestrial is spelled E.T.

      • Wendell: (to Nicholas) You did something mean to me because I was nice to you. You sound like one of my dates.

      • Wendell: It's like my daddy used to say 'you can laugh now, but when you stop, you won't be laughing'.
        : Sounds like your daddy's been drinking more than grape juice.

      • Robert: I need you in a bad way. Please say yes.
        : Cece, time for a nap.

    • NOTES (1)

      • Dream sequence: Robert imagines the family in a lifestyle similar to the Andersons from Father Knows Best, a popular radio show from the '50s that was later incarnated into a series about a bumbling family man, his common-sense wife and their three children. Whenever the kids need advice on anything at all, they can always turn to their father, because father knows best.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Wendell: Everybody knows you spell extraterrestrial E.T.

        Wendell is referring to the hit 1982 movie, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial.

      • Zaria: How many people can say they have their own tv talk show?
        Michael: Uh, counting Tempestt Bledsoe, everybody.

        Tempestt Bledsoe, who played the rambunctious Vanessa Huxtable on The Cosby Show from 1984-1992, later returned to television in 1995 with her own syndicated talk show.
