The art of streaking, getting a sponsor. This show is dedicated to crime and punishment Tells story about a beautiful spring day when he and Schwartz decided they didn't want to go to school that day. They spent the day walking down on the beach and going to a movie with a couple of girls they meet. They enjoy it so much they decide to do it again. The next day they need a note for school and ask the garage mechanic to write one for them which he does. They turn in the note and two periods later they are called to the office. Turns out the garage mechanic works for the truant department - they are suspended for three days and notes were mailed to their mothers.
