Miss Brooks talks about the things that occupy her time, and the odd concoctions that Mrs Davis makes. At school, Connie is on the way to the cafeteria for lunch.
Mr Conklin talks to Connie to express that he is fed up with the comments about the state of the food served in the cafeteria. Miss Brooks is tasked to get the feel of the students on the topic. At least she gets to draft Mr Boynton to help her. Mrs Davis pops in to bring Connie the lunch she forgot, and to talk about various topics including her sister Angela.
Stretch intercepts Connie on the way to the cafeteria to warn her of the boycott, and student uprising led by Walter and Harriot. As faculty advisor to the student body, the teens read Miss Brooks a list of their grievances.
Things are looking bad for Connie, but it gets worse when a reporter for the town newspaper is present, and hears her make a compromising remark. Connie manages to delay the boycott, then goes to discuss matters with Mr Boynton. They share a lunch together, but in the science lab, not the cafeteria. Just Boynton, Connie, and Macdugal the frog. They are joined by Mr LeBlanche, the French teacher, he’s pleasant to Connie, but he makes Macdugal nervous.
Miss Brooks is worried that Conklin will catch them eating lunch outside the cafeteria. How disloyal. No worries there since Conklin has his own lunch locked in his safe. As Conklin tries to enjoy his lunch, the reporter shares what he has learned about the student boycot, and Connie’s remark about the cafeteria.
What does the reporter propose? How can Conklin, and the school save face? A quality meal is to be hired to be catered in to impress the reporter. It seems to sove the temporary problem of bad press, and gives the students a break from the usual gruel, but I doubt it lasts.
