Bea and Oscar help Milo study for his final exam so he does not get held back a grade like their old friend Kevin. Bea tries to help by doing a play which does not help. So, due to that failure, Oscar, Albert Glass and Jumbo Shrimp try to help in a nerdy game but again fail. Soon Bea and Oscar figure out that the only way for him to learn is to put him through dangerous stunts.

Episode Summary

Mr. Baldwin said that he will hold Milo back a year if he does not pass the test. Milo says this to Oscar and Bea, who say that they will lose him as a friend. Oscar says that the Code of the Schoolyard said that "fish in different grades cannot be friends." Kevin, their old friend, says that they went on many adventures. Oscar and Bea say that they will help Milo learn. Milo then asks who Kevin is, then Kevin runs away, crying.

At home, Milo says that he can absorb any information. He then eats a history lesson and burps. He also rubs his belly. Bea then has a play about the first Fishgiving to help Milo study.

Milo runs up to Oscar asking for his help, and Oscar decides to help him, adding that he adds more science to his studies. Oscar has Milo close his eyes and follow his voice downstairs, and when they get there, Oscar reenacts a medieval war with Jumbo Shrimp and Albert Glass. Milo does not understand what is going on.

Milo says that he wants to pass the test, but "nothing's working." Bea says that he's an "untraditional" student, meaning that his brain works differently. Milo thinks that his brain is made out of nonstick spray. He then states the date of nonstick spray's invention. Milo says that he remembers when they were almost run over by a can. Milo also remembers the time they were almost eaten by jellyfish, which Milo says are 95% water. A jellyfish then says that it's only 5% jelly.

Bea asks why Milo remembers the times they almost got killed but not a single history fact. Bea and Oscar conclude that Milo only remembers when Milo's life is threatened. So in order to prepare him for the final exam, Bea and Oscar put Milo through many dangerous situations, including feeding him to other animals and nearly incinerating him.

The next day, Mr. Baldwin gives the class the tests. Milo enters, with bruises and missing teeth. It took pretty much the whole morning for Milo to finish his test. Luckily, Milo just barely passes his test.

End Credits
