Peggy "graduates" to subbing at the high school.

When Peggy makes the jump from Tom Landry Middle School to Arlen High School, she dives into the assignment with her trademark Peggy enthusiasm. That includes flunking the star football player - David Kaliiki-Alii - much to the ire of faculty, students and parents. The backlash affects Hank when the booster club goes ballistic and intimidates him into fixing the problem.

Hank creates a propane work-study program for David. By giving David an "A," Hank cancels out Peggy's "F" and frees David up for the big game. Afterward, Hank is unable to deal with the guilt of crossing Peggy and he withdraws the grade at the last minute. David, on the other hand, is tired of everyone thinking he's stupid and wants to honor the school's "no pass, no play" policy. On game night, he visits Hank and Peggy for a crash course in propane and makes up the grade in time for kickoff!
