The municipal coroner thinks they're going to turn the bodies hair into coats.

- The episode about the school being divided into "Eagles" and "Turtles" (the fast track and remedial classes).

Also, it finally turns out that there's an even LOWER remedial class, the "Sardines", which are forced to meet in a shipping crate in the parking lot, and are taught by a security guard (Russ is in that one).
