Additional Cast


When Bobby presents his oral report to his classmates, he demonstrates that his knowledge of history is severely lacking. When asked to speak about a real President of the United States, he chooses the man he knows best as president, Martin Sheen.

Needless to say, Bobby receives yet another "F" for presenting a report on a fictional, television personality. Bobby's addiction to the television has been detrimental to his education and Hank insists that Bobby find an extracurricular activity that does not include staring at the tube.

Bobby's attempt to join the chess club fails, but when the Quiz Bowl team discovers Bobby's knowledge of pop culture, they welcome him into their group. With Bobby's help, the team continues to advance to the Quiz Bowl Championship. Bobby just might be their key to winning the coveted championship title; however, the futures of his teammates rest heavily on his shoulders.

The pressure becomes too intense, and Bobby is sent into a frenzied panic attack in the middle of the Megalomart. Bobby is ready to quit the team to eliminate the stress all together, but Hank reminds him that stress cannot be avoided, it can only be managed. Regardless, Bobby is still reluctant to participate in the championship, but agrees to give it his best shot when Hank offers his reassurance.
