- When Mrs. White yells at Tony, her outline is incomplete.
- When Mrs. White says "Well, sorta", the animation of her saying "Yes, everybody is expelled." is reused.

(Episode opens with a wide shot of Mrs. White's classroom)
The Narrator: Ah, Lakeside City School - home to Mrs. White's class. Here, Mrs. White can usually be seen selling test answers to students that are likely to be dropouts, or not showing up to tutorials that students need. Let's see what they're up to today.
(Mrs. White is in front of the blackboard)
Mrs. White: Now, class, before I pass out your tests, I want you to keep quiet at all times unless you need a writing utensil.
(Later, everybody is taking the test)
Tony: (whispering) Psst, Frankie, can I borrow a pencil?
Mrs. White: BE QUIET UNLESS YOU WANT A ZERO!
Tony: But, Mrs. White, I was only asking for a pencil.
Mrs. White: AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! I'VE HAD ENOUGH!!!!! (screams harder and runs so fast she crashes through the classroom's wall)
Tony: I just wanted a pencil.
(That evening, Mrs. White is in her apartment. She is sitting down on her couch while eating a TV dinner and channel surfing)
Mrs. White: My students are so disrespectful. They just never know when to keep their mouths shut, and they're simply unteachable. If only I had a way to change their ways.
(Cut to inside of Mrs. White's head. The camera zooms into her brain, where we see live-action stock footage of a chimpanzee playing ping-pong with a man)
Mrs. White: Nope, my mind's blank. (suddenly, she gets an idea as a light bulb appears above her head) That's it! I can expel them! Walker needed it anyway. And besides, I've wasted 85 episodes and 4 seasons dealing with their nonsense, how did I not come up with this idea before?!
(Suddenly, the light bulb runs out of power and falls on her head, where it's shattered to pieces)
Mrs. White: OW!
(The next day, everybody except for Edward walks into class disappointed as usual)
Edward: I'm all set for my pre-pre-pre-pre-pre-pre Calculus test today, Mrs. White!
Mrs. White: Actually, Edward, today won't be your pre-pre-pre-pre-pre-pre Calculus test. In fact, class, consider this your last day here.
Edward: But, Mrs. White, it's January.
Mrs. White: I'm not one to give into popular sentiment-
Joey: Perhaps that explains your taste in clothes.
Mrs. White: -but the rest of the staff and I have concluded that all of you are the biggest nuisances we have ever encountered. And all of you will have to take your antics elsewhere, as Lakeside City School isn't the place for any of you.
Edward: So, are you saying that you are banning us from the premises on the account of persistent violation of guidelines?
Mrs. White: Yes, everybody is expelled.
(The entire class, except for Edward, cheers. Edward shatters to pieces, but then he quickly reforms himself and cries)
Edward: (sobbing) OH, PLEASE, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, MRS. WHITE! I NEVER DID ANYTHING WRONG! I JUST WANT TO PURSUE MY EDUCATION!
Mrs. White: (in her mind) Dang it. Everybody is happy, except for that twerp with glasses. And he's more annoying whenever he cries. I gotta think of something better before I flip out.
Eric: (pops out of nowhere) Hey, Mrs. White, why are you talking in your mind?
Mrs. White: GAH!
(Edward continues crying, and the entire class is partying. Some of them even knock down stuff)
Mrs. White: WAIT! You guys aren't expelled. Uhh, I have something better!
Joey: What is it? We still get to leave?
Mrs. White: Well, sorta.
(Immediately cuts to the entire class in a school bus. Every student is handcuffed)
Joey: WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU'RE DRAGGING US TO A SCARED STRAIGHT PROGRAM?!
Mrs. White: It's for your own good!
