Facing termination for not teaching anything, Mr. Garrison tells the students they have to give a current events presentation before the school board to demonstrate what they've learned in his class. The boys get partnered with Tweek, the jumpy son of a local coffee shop owner, and go to his house to put together their report. Mr. Tweek suggests they present a report on how big chain coffee shops are pushing smaller shops out of business, and gives them a report he's already written for them. The town committee is won over by their impassioned plea to fight the coffee chains, and the boys soon find themselves in over their heads when they are called upon to give another speech in a debate with the CEO of Harbuck's coffee.

This episode is a commentary on commercialization and lampoons the nature of America's free-market based economy. At the end of the 20th century and onward into the early 21st century, there was a surge in franchise stores (Wal-Mart, McDonalds etc) box stores popping up. Anti-corporate groups would argue that these box stores, with their low prices, would eliminate small businesses owners. This episode makes fun of the ridiculous efforts of both sides of the argument to try and get people to side with them. See more
