* JerkassHasAPoint: Downplayed; While Principal Murney has reason getting angered when a Nazi armband was brought to school, which can cause fear and panic due what it represents, he may have just subconsciously wanted a reason to get Seth in trouble since the latter was only using it for a play that ''involved'' Nazis in the plot. Still, not a smart move on Seth's part.

Things aren't much better at school. While Principal Claire Fletcher (Creator/LaurenGraham) allows him to be there to protect the kids, Vice Principal {{Jerkass}} Dwayne Murney (Creator/BradGarrett)-- who actively dislikes Seth, particularly when he keeps ditching the wrestling team (which Murney also coaches) -- is a totally different matter. As Shane tries to deal with these issues and come to some sort of agreeable arrangement with the kids, he tries to find the missing satellite program, all while dealing with a pair of masked ninjas who are looking for the same.
