While Connie is practicing the violin for recital, Bobby convinces her to play hooky and sneak out to play video games. When Connie flubs her routine at the recital, her humiliated father tells Bobby that he's holding Connie back. Bobby refuses to leave her alone, but then Kahn bribes him to stay away. Bobby tells Connie about the bribe but she tells Bobby to keep the money and they'll pretend to be broken up.
While in health class, Bobby and Connie trade notes expressing how they are so bored that they could "kill" themselves. The teacher finds one note and shows it to the principal, who suspects that the teenagers are suicidal. Kahn, riddled with guilt tells Bobby that he should spend more time with Connie. Connie has tired of Bobby though and ultimately breaks up, realizing that they can still be friends.
