Storyline

Mark's new girlfriend, punk tomcat Amanda Dank, constantly leads him astray in a big way. Frank tries to make him see sense while controlling outraged Carol, but shameless kiss-manipulation leads to the knave's arrest for illegally driving his truck. Handsome teaching assistant Jace Thompson constantly grades Karen's immature rhymes A, so Dana, whose pretentious, dreary hate verse gets bad grades, wants to trick him. Her chance arrives when Karen is blackmailed to date him or join the D-rated, but taping evidence isn't as easy as it sounds. Written by KGF Vissers
