Episode Summary

It is Tuesday morning, and Vice Principal Chakal is ordering students to get to class, while under the watchful eye of Principal Tonino. He then catches the scent of arcade tokens. Manny and Frida finally arrive, and blab excuses for being late (9 is the starting time). Principal Tonino pardons them, and they head off. This carries on until Thursdary morning, where Chakal is in charge while Tonino is away. Chakal had called Manny and Frida's parents to taLk about their tardiness.
