Episode Summary

The scene opens as Bea seems to be liked in everyone in school. In the classroom, Mr. Baldwin asks his students about the plan for the weekend, but nobody responses. Then, Baldwin decides to give his students an A this semester if they have ideas. Meanwhile, Albert Glass shows that today is his birthday. Albert gives cupcakes to all his classmates but skips Bea and pulls a long face in front of her because he does not like Bea. Then, Bea tries to make Albert like her but in vain. Bea feels insane for not being liked by a fish, so Shellsea gives her advice to give the tickets and something in the sack to Albert.

After that, Bea enters Albert's place while he is taking a nap. She tries to give him the tickets but gets rejected. Then she takes the handcuffs out of the sack and cuffs herself and Albert. Later, they are on the flush with Oscar and Milo. Oscar and Milo try to ask Bea to let go of Albert but in vain. Then Milo spreads the popcorn oil on the handcuff to free Albert, but Albert falls down to the flush. Bea suddenly knows that its was her fault, so she tries to rescue Albert, and Oscar and Milo jump down, too.

Before they go up, they have to beware of the contestants. After they go up, one of the contestants got stuck in the flush. Everyone does not allow Bea since she ruined the contest. Milo asks Albert whether he changed his opinion to Bea. Although Albert pulls a long face again, he then changes to like her. He tells Bea that why he did not like Bea is because she thinks everyone in school likes her and it was going too far. Then he cuffs himself and Bea by a handcuff. In the end, the four laugh and cough by getting dry.

Memorable Quotes

Albert: (Bea is trying to pull him out of the swirly) At times like this, you just relax your body and accept fate.

Bea: Hey Albert. Nice crown. You must've made a mistake and not have seen me sitting there when you were handing out cupcakes. And since you've got two I just thought that...
Albert: (swallows both cupcakes) It's no mistake Bea. You didn't get one because I don't like you.
Bea: What! Why?

Albert: Um... I don't know. I can't put my fin on it. No offense or anything.

Production Information

  • When Albert passes Oscar his cupcakes are green and yellow, but at his seat they are pink.
  • In some cable listenings, "Glass" is misspelt as "Class".
