The episode starts out with Miss Simian teaching upfront. Every time she turns around the children gasp. In disgust, they do whatever they can to block a repulsive sight. Gumball and Darwin decide to write her a note about it, and fold it into a paper airplane to throw at her. However, the paper airplane accidentally flies into her eye.
Next, they are in Principal Brown'soffice, as Miss Simian yells about how bad Gumball and Darwin are to Principal Brown. Principal Brown asks why the boys threw the paper airplane at her, and they respond by telling him to read the message. Miss Simian goes to close a window, right when Principal Brown finally notices that her posterior is exposed. He informs her of the situation, and she is very embarrassed and infuriated. However, the boys are not punished for their actions, and Principal Brown tells Miss Simian that she should apologize to them. Rather than that, she goes berserk and wrecks his office.
Miss Simian is determined not to apologize, and she conspires to prove that Gumball and Darwin are bad kids. First, Gumball gives her his report card, and Miss Simian takes them to Principal Brown's office in suspicion of forged signature. Richard, whose signature Miss Simian thought the boys forged, is called in to sign a suspension card, and to their surprise, his signature exactly matches the one on the report card.
Next, Miss Simian plants a $100 bill in the library for the boys to find, thereby trying to prove they are thieves. Of course, Gumball and Darwin are overjoyed upon the discovery of money. However, they both agree that the $100 bill is corrupting them, so they throw it away.
Later, Gumball and Darwin are having their lunch when they start having a discussion about a rumored upcoming fight, and who is going to be in said fight. It turns out they are the ones involved in the fight. Their classmates egg them on, but, ultimately, Gumball and Darwin resolve the problem peacefully. Miss Simian, the one who staged the fight, is devastated.
After a brief, one-sided conversation with the skeletal remains of her father at the museum, Miss Simian makes one final attempt. She enters the boys' restroom to spray graffiti in order to frame Gumball and Darwin. It backfires on her, as the nozzle was pointing towards her, so she gets spray paint all over herself. Principal Brown is fed up with her attempts, and warns to stop, or else he will fire her. Truth be told, he is upset that it may mean the end of their relationship if Miss Simian is really this kind of spiteful person.
Gumball and Darwin see Miss Simian and Principal Brown's plight, and they plan to commit a bad deed and get themselves caught in order to preserve the faculty staff's relationship. They retrieve the spray paint can from the restroom. when they get caught by Miss Simian, she goes into a bout of primal ape rage and chases them through the hallway. They manage to delay her by unintentionally slamming a locker door into her face. They proceed outside, where Gumball begins spraying paint onto Principal Brown's car, and Darwin unsuccessfully throws rocks at his office's window. They get into an argument about Darwin's poor throwing skills when they are caught by Miss Simian. At last, she realizes she finally can take them to the principal's office, only to be surprised upon learning Gumball's intent: to save Miss Simian's job, reputation, and relationship. She quickly excuses the boys to clean up the car, and as the boys leave, she whispers an apology to them. As she goes back to cleaning, Principal Brown peeks out of his car and asks her for an explanation on why his car has been defaced.
Gumball breaks the fourth wall in the scene when he asks why he has to run every eight minutes in his life. When he said that, it was eight minutes into the episode.
When Principal Brown looks at Richard's signature on the suspension card, upsetting Hector is listed as one of the infractions.
This episode first aired on Election Day in the United States.
Gumball's suspension would have started on May 11th, so it is likely that the episode takes place on or near that date.
This episode reveals that Miss Simian's first name is Lucy.
When Miss Simian looks out at Gumball and Darwin from between a gap in a shelf full of school library books, the authors' names on those books are the names of animation staff members for the show.
On the chalkboard, Miss Simian is most likely teaching about the sun, referencing the symptoms one may experience if they look directly at sunlight.
It is revealed that Miss Simian and her father may have had father-daughter issues.
This episode marks the first time where Miss Simian shows her true characteristics as an ape.
This is Miss Simian's second major appearance; the first was in "The Ape."
A flyer advertising Mr. Robinson's performance at the Elmore Senior Talent Show can be seen in the background when Darwin gives Gumball a leg up. Its design is nearly identical to the one in "The Debt."
This is the third time Bobert's combat form is shown. The first time was in "The Robot," and the second time was in "The Club."
Tina is seen clapping her hands in this episode, but in "The Mustache," her hands could not reach each other to do so.
This scene of Gumball imagining Tina fighting Bobert is a parody of Godzilla and similar film series.
When Gumball and Darwin find the dollar on the floor, they both yell "OOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHH!" This is a reference to Mordecai and Rigby from Regular Show, who often yell the same thing when they are excited or overjoyed.
When the camera is zoomed in on the $100 bill, it says "CN Series" on its left.
The set in which Miss Simian is speaking to her father is an image of the London Natural History Museum. The statue of Charles Darwin located on its staircase is seen.
Lucy Simian: Now, pay attention! [Turns around] This diagram reveals everything you need to know -
Lucy Simian: [Faces the class] What?!
Class: [Collective muttering]
Lucy Simian: [Turns around again] Hm. Now we shall continue. This area is -
Lucy Simian: [Faces the class again] What?! [Turns back to the board. As she does, Penny uses a book to shield her view] This area is mostly composed of hot gases. Never look at it directly with the naked eye, or you will burn your retinas.
[Tobias turns around with burning eyes.]
Lucy Simian: This could lead to rash acts...
[Banana Joe throws his eyes off of his face.]
Lucy Simian: Nausea...
[Masami vomits rainbows, William falls down.]
Lucy Simian: Weight loss...
[Leslie's petals fall out.]
Lucy Simian: Malfunction, confusion...
[Bobert shorts out, Sarah's head melts, and Sussie regurgitates a brown liquid.]
Lucy Simian: Or explosion.
[Idaho blows up.]
Gumball: [shouting angrily] Oh, I can't take this anymore!
Darwin: [Hysterical] Every second I look at it, means another year of therapy!
Gumball: [Covering his eyes] Augh, I - I gotta tell her, man!
Darwin: You can't talk to a teacher about her tushy! It's too touchy!
Gumball: Aw, c'mon. You can't leave her like that. It - It's cruel.
Darwin Okay, but we got to be subtle. [Writes something down on paper, and hands it to Gumball. Gumball then folds it into a paper plane.]
Gumball: Psst! Miss Simian! [Throws airplane.]
Lucy Simian: Huh? [Plane lands in her eye.]
At the Principal's Office
Lucy Simian: [Screaming at Gumball and Darwin] You are nothing but a pair of disruptive, disrespectful delinquents from a dysfunctional dynasty of degenerates and dimwits!!
Nigel Brown: What do you have to say for your defense?
Gumball: Uh, it was an accident, sir! We were trying to tell her something!
Nigel Brown: Tell her what?!
Gumball: Uh, uh, I... I can't say it. It's too embarrassing.
Nigel Brown: [Slams his fist on the desk] For the last time, why did you throw a paper plane at your teacher's face?!
Darwin: [Whispers to Principal Brown] It says it all on the paper.
Nigel Brown: [Reading to himself, muffled and confused] "You do not know how much you show, but the wind doth blow in the hills below?" ...Huh?
Lucy Simian: Speaking of which, can anyone else feel that draft?
[Miss Simian walks away to close the window. The screen zooms in on her butt. Principal Brown then spits out his beverage while giving himself a facepalm for an extended period of time.]
Darwin: [Whispering to Principal Brown] Maybe you should say something.
Nigel Brown: [Suddenly stops spitting] Yes, I suppose.
[Principal Brown walks to Miss Simian, and whispers something into her ear.]
Lucy Simian: [Gasps whilst pulling her dress down] You knew about this, and you thought it was funny, didn't you?!
[Gumball and Darwin simultaneously shake their heads.]
Lucy Simian: YOU THINK THIS IS FUNNY?!
Nigel Brown: Lucy, please. I think you owe them an apology.
Lucy Simian: Don't you "Lucy" me, Nigel! These kids tried to make a monkey out of me, and you want me to apologize?!
Nigel Brown: Uh, you kids are free to go. [Gumball and Darwin leave.]
[Miss Simian goes "ape" and throws furniture around, while making monkey sounds. Gumball and Darwin listen to Miss Simian's rampage outside Brown's office]
Gumball: Hmm. There's one thing I don't understand.
Darwin: Yeah, why did she go ape when we just tried to help her?
Gumball: No, why do monkeys have hair all over their bodies, except for the ugly part where they need it the most?
Gumball: [To Darwin] Have you noticed that Miss Simian has been acting a little "off" lately?
Darwin: Now that you mention it, she has been keeping a particularly close eye on us.
[Screen pans out showing Miss Simian's eyeballs stretched toward Gumball and Darwin. The two then try to make their way out the classroom, when they are greeted by Miss Simian's outstretched hand. Gumball slaps Miss Simian's hand, as if giving a high-five.]
Lucy Simian: Report card. Signed.
Gumball: Oh! Okay.
[Miss Simian swipes the card, glances at the signature and chuckles to herself. Gumball and Darwin join in nervously. They continue laughing until Miss Simian abruptly stops and so do the boys.]
In the Principal's Office 2
Lucy Simian: It's the most pathetic, half-baked, attempt at forgery I've seen in my three-hundred-thousand years as a teacher, and I've taught during the Stone Age!
Richard: [Gasps] Forgery-ers! My own flesh and blood accused of forgery-ing?! [Whispers to Miss Simian] What does it mean?
Lucy Simian: Faking your signature.
[Richard gasps again.]
Nigel Brown: We need you to sign this suspension card.
Gumball: Oh, but -
Richard: Buh, buh, buh!
[Richard signs the card; Principal Brown looks at the signature to see that it is the exact same one on the report card; Scene skips to Principal Brown's office trashed, with only Miss Simian and Principal Brown in it; Miss Simian is crying.]
Nigel Brown: Uh, listen, these kids are decent children. There's nothing you can suspend them for. They don't fight, they respect school property, they don't steal.
[Cut to the library. Gumball and Darwin find a one-hundred dollar bill on the floor.]
Gumball & Darwin: Oooooohhhhhhhhhhhhh!
Lucy Simian: [Hiding behind a bookshelf] C'mon, pick it up and keep it for yourselves, you thieving hoodlums.
Gumball: [Dancing] We're rich!
Darwin: [Also dancing] We're prosperous!
Gumball: We're opulent!
Darwin: We're fresh!
Gumball: We're gilded!
Darwin: We're wealthy!
Gumball: We're — wait a minute. We need to change our phone numbers and leave town!
Gumball: [Whispering] Because they're all gonna want a piece of it.
Gumball: Everyone! Look at all trying to get their creepy hands on my money!
[Leslie walks by, creeped out]
Darwin: Gumball, you've changed!
Gumball: No, I haven't! I'm just the same, but happier, because I'm RICH!
Darwin: Look at yourself! You're surrounded by all these riches, but you're the loneliest man in the world! [Sobs]
Gumball: You're - You're right! This money is evil! I wish I never found it! [Balls up money and throws it out the window. Miss Simian dives after it]
[Gumball and Darwin are eating lunch outside]
Gumball: Mm. Have you heard? There's gonna be a big fight!
Darwin: Why do you think I brought the popcorn? Who do you think it'll be?
Gumball: I don't know. [Gasps] Imagine if it's Tina and Bobert!
[Cutaway of Bobert and Tina shooting lasers at each other.]
Gumball: If I saw that, I'd throw away my eyes, because nothing else in the world will be worth watching anymore.
Darwin: Really? What about [In a boxing announcer's voice]Alaaaaaaaaaaan versus Williaaaaaaaaaaam?!
[Cutaway of Alan and William bumping into each other.]
Gumball: Yeah, I'd watch it, but it'd be better if it were in a cage.
[A cage appears in the cutaway]
Darwin: With spikes.
[Spikes appear in cutaway]
Gumball: That was on fire.
[Cage gets lit on fire. William and Alan bump each other nervously.]
Gumball: Oh, I can't wait to see who it is!
[Classmates form a crowd around Gumball and Darwin.]
Lucy Simian: See? Look at them, about to fight like animals!
Nigel Brown: Why not focus your attention on someone who really needs it? [Puckers his lips.]
Lucy Simian: Shush. It's about to start.
Gumball: Dude, what are we doing?
Darwin: Stupid things because of peer pressure.
Alan: This would be even better with poisoned nunchucks.
Darwin: You gotta get us out of this.
Gumball: Okay, hold on, I got it. People of Elmore! You came to see a fight, and until a few seconds ago, I was just like you! But now that I know I'm the one who's supposed to get hit, I discovered something! Fighting is wrong! This is no way to settle a dispute. Because after all, what's more powerful? This... [Puts fist up] or this? [Gives Darwin a handshake and a hug]
[The crowd starts clapping while Miss Simian starts banging on the window]
Nigel Brown: Lucy, what's wrong? Speak.
Lucy Simian: This isn't at all what I had planned!
Nigel Brown: Please don't tell me you're the one who arranged this fight.
[Miss Simian starts to go "ape"; scene skips to Principal Brown disgustedly staring down at the floor of his wrecked office]
[Miss Simian is seen at the museum]
Lucy Simian: I know we haven't spoken in a long time, but I need your advice. Is it really wrong to create false evidence to frame some criminals who you know for sure are definitely, absolutely, without a single shadow of a doubt, guilty?! [Cut back to show her talking to a baboon skeleton] Well, I don't care what you think, Dad, I'm doing it anyway!
[Miss Simian is seen sneaking into the boys' bathroom, but not before covering her eyes. She feels in front of her and finds a mirror.]
Lucy Simian: Let's see you get away with this one, you little hooligans. [Unnoticingly sprays herself]
In the Principal's Offiice 3
Lucy Simian: And I know for sure these two did the graffiti because they were idiotic enough to sign there names at the bottom of it!
Nigel Brown: Are you sure no one else could've done it?
Lucy Simian: [Screen pans out to show spray paint on her face] Absolutely!
Nigel Brown: Miss Simian! Wrongly accusing the boys is one thing, but openly framing them is another! One more offense and you are fired! And you still owe these boys an apology!
Gumball: [Whispering] It's fine, it's fine.
Lucy Simian: I'll apologize when fish start to walk.
[Darwin is about to say that it already happened, but Gumball slaps a hand on his mouth.]
Nigel Brown: [Tearfully] If this really is the kind of person you are, then we seriously need to talk about our relationship as well.
[Miss Simian starts to go ape, but can't lift the desk.]
Nigel Brown: I saw that coming, I glued everything to the floor.
[Miss Simian runs away crying. Principal Brown also starts sobbing.]
Committing a Crime
[School bus drives away from Elmore, screen cuts to Gumball and Darwin against the wall of the school]
Darwin: I gotta be honest, Gumball. I'm not entirely comfortable with committing a crime.
Gumball: Look, it's not a crime if you intend to get caught. Unless we actually do something bad, Simian's gonna blow a fuse and lose her hairy boyfriend. Do you really want that on your conscience? [Darwin shakes his head] Good, now give me a leg up. [Darwin gives Gumball a leg up, and Gumball hops through window]
Darwin: Now what am I supposed to do?
Gumball: Give yourself a leg up.
Darwin: Oh, of course.
[Gives himself a leg up, literally, and hops through window. They sneak in the hallway and see Principal Brown crying and spilling coffee on himself because of the glue. Gumball breaks into the bathroom through the air vent, while Darwin just uses the door. He's about to say something.]
Gumball: Don't. [Walks over to the trash can and takes the can of spraypaint that Miss Simian previously discarded] Hehe. This is gonna be easier than I thought. [Miss Simian sees them and then they see her, and she infuriatingly charges at them] Oh, why do I have to run every eight minutes of my life?!
Darwin: Wait, in the jungle when a gorilla charges, you have to stare 'em to the ground!
[Miss Simian is still charging and then we see Darwin running away]
Gumball: Uh, is it working, dude? Dude?
Darwin: I just realized, we can't let her catch us until we've done something bad.
Gumball: Ah, you could've told me!
[Miss Simian is still charging and Gumball starts running with his legs coming off and then his top half has to catch up. Miss Simian chases Gumball down the hall. Darwin is in a locker and opens it for Gumball.]
Darwin: Quick, get in here. [Miss Simian crashes into said locker, losing a tooth, which Gumball puts back in her mouth where it came off. Gumball and Darwin then go to Principal Brown's car]
Gumball: You get Brown's attention, I'll deface his car. [He begins spraying the car while Darwin starts throwing rocks at the school.]
Darwin: Psst, Principal Brown! [Breaks window] Principal Brown! [Breaks another window] Principal Brown! [Breaks another window] Principal Brown! [Breaks another window] Principal Brown! [Breaks another window]
Gumball: [Gasps] Dude, why is every single window broken, except for Brown's?
Darwin: How about you do it yourself if you're such a hot...shot. [Miss Simian appears]
Lucy Simian: I caught them. I finally caught them. Which means, I can do this. [Struggles to smile] You're coming with me to the principal's office.
Gumball: With pleasure. [Gumball & Darwin begin to walk away, but stop] Wait, we forgot to spray our names.
Lucy Simian: What do you mean?
Gumball: Well, duh, if we don't sign it, Principal Brown will think it's you again, then you'll get fired and lose the love of your life. Now where would that leave us?
Lucy Simian: Are you trying to say you only did this to save my reputation, my job, and my relationship?
Darwin: Of course. What do you take us for, some kind of criminals?
Lucy Simian: Well, yes. [Gasps] But I was wrong. Right, I'll clean this up, you need to get out of here before Principal Brown sees this.
Gumball: I don't think so, Miss Simian. We're not letting you ruin your life.
Lucy Simian: Don't worry, I won't. Just go! [Gumball and Darwin begin walking away. Miss Simian whispers to them] Boys, I'm sorry.
Lucy Simian: [A little louder] I'm sorry.
Gumball: Say again.
Lucy Simian: [Louder] I'm sorry.
Gumball: Heh, heard it the first time, miss. Just wanted to milk it.
Lucy Simian: [chuckling] Those little...
Nigel Brown: [In his car, confusedly looking at the spray paint of a pose] Care to explain?
