Go To

Adam gets a chance to return to Chester Arthur Middle School, when an exchange student program comes about.

  • Aesop Amnesia: Even though Adam learns that CAMS wasn't as good as his memories made it out to be, he still goes on to complain about how CDMS isn't as good as the former in future episodes.
  • Everybody Laughs Ending: It was funny how, when Adam referred to his friends as "Boyos", it was exclusive to Ingrid and Lupe, before he added "And Girlos".

  • Fantastic Racism: Jake thinks that all humans look exactly the same.
  • Fun with Homophones: Jake has this, when Adam returns to his presence, and breaks his spine in the process.
    Jake: Adam, You're back! ... it's broken.
  • "Gift of the Magi" Plot: Adam's derivative reason for doing the exchange program was so he could see Kerry again. Just after he left, Kerry comes to CDMS, having done the same thing at her own school.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: Adam wants to go back to his human school again.
  • Neat Freak: Everything at Chester Arthur Middle School is sparkling clean and it must stay that way. It's so bad that a janitor is paid to stand by the water fountain 24/4, and spritz it after every use.
  • Out of Focus: Ingrid was mysteriously absent for 99% of the episode. She appeared at the very end, where she didn't speak, but her voice actor was used, when she laughed in unison, with everybody else.

  • Nostalgia Filter: Adam remembers CAMS as being way better than it really was, and forgets all the bad memories.
  • Your Head A-Splode: Jake's head explodes, when he sees how all humans look the same.
