Ms. Baker tries to get everyone to leave, then Larry starts throwing her some crab legs over the door. Clarence asks Ms. Baker if they can eat in the restroom because she told him not to at school, then Ms. Baker replies that she's not his teacher right now and that she's just a normal person. Clarence can't believe his ears and starts feeling sorry for Ms. Baker because he thinks she's lonely. At the table, Mary wonders where Chad and Clarence are, at that moment, a girl tells Joshua that there are a bunch of men in the women's restroom. Mary heard what she said, and worries. Meanwhile, Ms. Baker tries to convince Clarence that she's just fine.


Clarence doesn't listen and tries to crawl under the door to hug Ms. Baker, and that's when Mary arrives. Mary tells all the men to get out, and she apologizes to Ms. Baker for what she had to go through. Later, everyone sits at the table to eat ice cream. Everyone has a good time. Clarence asks Larry for another crab leg. When Larry gives him one, Clarence accidentally flings the crab leg's stuffing across the room and Joshua trips over it, which sends all the dishes and silverware he was carrying flying, and one of the forks pokes his eye, and the episode ends with the ambulance truck arriving.

  • As much with the episode, showing the two male couples, has led to other countries, either edited or removed the scene, while in countries, such as Kenya, had either suspended or banned the show from airing there, that alongside with other shows (such as Steven Universe, Adventure Time, Gravity Falls, The Legend of Korra, The Loud House, and Star vs. the Forces of Evil) that displays anything LGBT related were also halted from airing there.
