But Josh gets in trouble when her angered boyfriend Buck (Joey Mendicino) thinks she is on a date with Josh instead and challenges him to a fight.

However, he takes his new job very seriously and overuses his teaching skills, as he challenges the students with college-level chemistry, something that the students are not old enough to learn about, and even fails them on pop quizzes based on homework that they were unable to do. Because of this, Megan becomes disliked by her classmates and gets uninvited to her friend Katie's birthday party which involves a Josh piñata. Drake finds an 11-year-old boy in Megan's class with a talent to play drums and wants him to play for the band on Friday after his original drummer quit, but he is not allowed to play after failing Josh's pop quiz, so Drake is now annoyed at Josh. Drake and Megan hatch a sneaky little plan to fire Josh from the student-teaching group. They sneak into the school at night and replace his liquid (to use in chemistry) with one that will explode when combined with anything, replace a tape about chemistry with a video of clowns hurting each other with rubber chickens, and unscrew the sink to burst water when turned. At the end, Josh is fired and the young boy gets to play with Drake at a concert in the Premiere. However, Megan and her classmates then give a trophy to Josh, calling him their favorite teacher, because him screwing up his teaching job got the class's other teacher (whom they hated) to quit. They then admit that Josh is cool, not as a teacher, but as a guy, something which Josh delightfully accepts.
