(B-story: Sandra's outfit gets her expelled from school.

  • Pelswick manages and performs in Goon, Ace, Julie and Sandra's band. The band is sort of a Rorschach for the entire town: what everyone hears in the lyrics reveals their own insecurities and obsessions. The band must find a way to persuade everyone their music is inoffensive.

  • When Quentin is laid off, the household needs money while he hunts for work. Gram-Gram tries out for super model, test pilot, etc., Kate starts day trading on the stock market and Pelswick takes a paper route at 4:30 a.m. so his friends wont see him doing a little kid job.

  • Quentin's new girlfriend is monstrously P.C. and Pelswick has to become an ass to shock her into seeing him as human.

  • Gram-Gram becomes a T/A at Alcatraz, in Pelswick's class. At first she's an unholy embarrassment and Pelswick dreads going to class. But then she wins over the class - and the school - with her fascinating (if bizarre and contradictory) recollections of the cataclysmic Bayview Flood. Of course at the end they find out Gram-Gram managed to make fun because everything she remembered was wrong.

  • Goon gets involved in the sale of a pyramid-product (Glurpee Seed and Fertilizer). The whole town gets sucked in. Pelswick and Ace must find a way to expose the sham and deprogram the residents of Bayview.

  • Pelswick refuses to put his Life and Crafts puppet of himself in a tiny puppet wheelchair and gets suspended for insubordination. He wont tell his family so he spends his time hanging around the Burger Barrel, the movie theatre, and the chat caf while his friends at school lobby in protest to get Pelswick reinstated.

  • Julie and Sandra both try out for the girls basketball team. When the coach clearly prefers Sandra, Julie thinks it's favoritism. But in reality it's because Julie really stinks. Sandra becomes self-conscious so she enlists Pelswick to teach her to stink at the game too.

  • Mr. Jimmy gets a trainee, Albert, who becomes maniacally attached to Pelswick and wont leave him alone. Pelswick has to figure a way to get rid of him.

  • A nuclear-powered space station is going to plunge through the atmosphere and hit Bayview; the town goes to self-serving pieces.

  • Bayview is suffering economic cutbacks and the town hires a psychic to help them come up with tactics to gain equity (i.e. winning numbers for lottery tickets, where to drill for oil, etc.). Pelswick sees through the guy's schtick and must find a way to expose him as a fraud.

  • Angry at lousy local programming, Pelswick finds his Dad's old pirate radio transmitter... and WHEEL is on the air!

  • Quentin keeps the family's vacation destination a secret until the last minute... when it's too late for Pelswick, Ace and Goon to escape the worst camp in the history of Spring Break.

  • When Gram-Gram checks herself into a Nursing Home, Pelswick decides something's seriously wrong and enlists his friends help to bust her out.

  • Someone creates a web site listing the students of Alcatraz in order of popularity... a minor annoyance, until the kids realize they can vote to affect each others listings.

  • When Pelswick gets Goon a warm-up gig on the WWL Wrestling tour, Goon takes his rigged victory a mite too seriously.

  • When the hottest boy band in the country comes to Bayview, Pelswick realizes the quickest way to a woman's heart is through the ticket lineup.

  • When Pelswick is partnered with Boyd on a Science Fair project, they accidentally modify his chair so it goes 50 miles an hour, on the freeway, with Boyd stuck on top... forcing the sworn enemies to - gasp! - work together to avoid disaster.

  • It's Grandparent Appreciation Week at Alcatraz Jr. High, but Pelswick has little to be appreciative of... until he thinks of a novel way to get back at bully Boyd.

  • When Pelswick gets drawn big-time into the fanatical world of Brain Suckers trading cards it's just his luck that bully Boyd gets the one card he'd do anything to get his hands on.

  • Pelswick's thrilled when his irreverent cartoon makes it onto the cover of the school paper... but unprepared for the showdown that follows when the paper is banned because of his drawing.

  • Boyd Scullarzo pulls the meanest trick in the bully arsenal; he runs Pelswick for Student Body President.
