'''Instead''': The class goes nuts trying to prepare for television presentations. Roger and BeeBee use their wealth to create elaborate special effects, while Doug goes on spending and anxiety sprees trying to figure out what book is exciting enough and what effects he can afford. BeeBee pays for a large reenactment of ''Literature/TreasureIsland''. In Roger's case, he hires a ghostwriter to write a book about his family and then actors to do a movie on it.\\
'''The Result''': On due date, most of the class suffers a number of technical difficulties with their effects, even those like Skeeter and Patty who put in the work. As BeeBee finds out, ''Treasure Island''' sinks the day reports are due. The actors go on strike right when Roger presents them. Both admit they didn't read the book, to Ms. Kristal's obvious befuddlement, and Skunky embarrasses Roger further by showing up with a BoringButPractical book report on ''Biography of Klautz'' that earns him an A. Doug shows up with his simple handwritten report on Edgar Allan Poe, and his oratory skills steal the show from BeeBee. The lesson?

** "Doug Gets His Wish": Ms. Kristal is revealed to be a CoolTeacher but also intense. She gives a lot of homework and has high expectations for her English literature students. At one point Willie, who walked in late and doesn't know what the story is, has to tell his father that Ms. Kristal wants to meet for a parent-teacher conference. Willie claims that she hasn't taught him anything. Ms. Kristal also admits that she didn't vote for his father, who is the school principal and was formerly a mayor.\\
'''You'd Expect''': Principal White would talk to Ms. Kristal to learn about the curriculum during the conference. They could then try to figure out how to help Willie with the material.\\
'''Instead''': In a blatant abuse of power, he fires her on the grounds that Willie claims he's never learned anything in her class and for not voting for him, and then puts Willie in charge of English literature. Skeeter sees the danger, but Willlie suspends him for pointing out that Doug has the right to talk with Ms. Kristal at the grocery store.\\
'''The Result''': When Willie gets DrunkWithPower, the students bound together against him and petition the school board to have Ms. Krystal reinstated. [[RealityEnsues Tippi Dink, the head of the board, points out that you can't fire a teacher because she didn't support your election]], and Doug quickly proves that Willie learned a lot from Ms. Kristal. Tippi reinstates her, and puts Principal White in the class to learn.

** In "Junk Food", the Catillac Cats open up a restaurant which attracts the attention of a local food critic. The critic's visit prompts ''three'' separate instances, the last of which jeopardizes their status as a five-star eatery. First, Riff Raff advises the maître d', Hector, to let him in.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Hector to do just that, no questions asked.\\

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'':
**In the episode, "One Flu Over the Loud House", the family comes down with a case of the flu which makes them act like zombies, and Lincoln and the only remaining survivors try to escape the house without getting inflected.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' For them to wear some form of protection while trying to escap so that the germs won't get on them.\\
'''Instead:''' They don't and they all end up catching the flu by the end of the episode. At least Clyde's taking care of them (wearing a hazmat suit like the others should've done in the first place).


** [[ChristmasEpisode ''Dexter vs. Santa's Claws,'']] widely considered the show's worst episode, is a glaring example of how Dexter's ego can turn him from a self-proclaimed [[ChildProdigy "Boy Genius"]] into a complete idiot. On Christmas Eve, Dee Dee writes a wish list to Santa Claus on Dexter's computer. Dexter mocks Dee Dee, telling her he doesn't believe in Santa and (through a ''painfully'' bad rap song) tells her that it's just their dad dressing up as him (and their mom as a reindeer), decorating their car like a sleigh and putting the presents around the tree. Likewise, Dee Dee immediately tells Dexter that his theory is bonkers and that Santa indeed exist. To prove his theory right and protect his ego, Dexter decides to hold a stakeout on the living room to prove once and for all that there is no Santa. When Santa appears in the room (by teleporting), it's clear to anyone that he looks ''absolutely nothing'' like Dexter's dad. It also doesn't help that he only speaks in [[PokemonSpeak "Ho ho ho"'s.]]

*** '''You'd Expect:''' That Dexter would ''then'' get the message after pulling the (very real) antlers off the reindeer's head, and then apologize to it and to Santa for assaulting them. Again, that doesn't happen.
