At Greendale Community College, students are walking to class. Jenna King and Madison Rivera are two of the students walking to their math class. The PA system fills the noise in the hallways.
“And remember, the parking for this weekend’s school fair will be decided at lunch. I will be deaning off against City College Dean Spreck in human chess in the cafeteria. Volunteer pieces please meet at my office at 11:15 am for your costumes.” The PA system announces.
Jenna shakes her head in disgust. “Who volunteers for that?”” Jenna asks Madison.
Madison doesn’t heard her as she said, “I hope I get to be the Queen.” Jenna sighs as they walk into class and to their seats.
Eric Peters, Ella Rumpskin and Leo Lee are already at their seats as Mr. Port, their math teacher begins class. Mr. Port is a bearded man with brown hair. He is wearing a brown suit that matches his hair.
“Alright everyone, past in your assignment to my desk.” He said. Ella raises her hand. Mr. Port sighs. “Yes, Rumpstick?” He asks.
“It’s Rumpskin.” Ella said. A few students in the back snicker. Ella rolls her eyes in annoyance as she continues, “Which assignment do we turn in? Math Wars I: The Phantom Equation or Math Wars IV: A New Formula?” She asks.
“For you, the entire trilogy.” Mr. Port said.
“Oh good.” Ella said smiling as she walks up to Mr. Port’s desk and place a stack of assignments on his desk.
“And there goes my weekend.” Mr. Port said in annoyance.
Ella smiles at him as she fixes her glasses.
At lunchtime in the cafeteria, Jenna and the group are sitting together eating lunch. Madison is not there as she is involve in the human chess match.
“I’m surprise on how well Madison is doing as Queen.” Eric said as he watches the match.
“Well, the Dean does play a mean game of chess.” A familiar voice said.
Jenna turn her head to the side to see her uncle, Jeff Winger. “Hey, Jeff.” She said.
“Jenna.” Jeff replies. “Saved by the Bell rejects.” He address the rest of the group. They’re taken aback by the remark except for Leo, who nods his head in agreement after thinking about it. “May I have a seat?” He asks.
Jenna motions Eric and Leo to scout down to give Jeff a seat. Jeff sits down as he starts texting on his phone. “So, uncle. What brings you here?” Jenna asks.
“Craig is making me work a booth at the fair this weekend and as much I wouldn’t mind this. I’m the only one working it.” Jeff said.
“So you need some volunteers?” Eric asks. Jeff nods.
“What about your usual crew?” Leo asks.
“They’re helping Shirley and her sandwich booth instead. She innocently forced them to help her.” Jeff said.
“Innocently?” Ella asks.
Jeff sheesh Ella. “She could hear us.” Jeff motions to where Shirley is working at her sandwich shop in the cafeteria. “So who wants to help?” He asks, smiling. Eric, Leo and Ella quickly leave their seats. Jeff’s smile turns into a frown. “I had that coming.” He said.
Jenna lets out a small smile. “Definitely. Don’t worry, I’ll help out.” She said.
“Thank you.” Jeff said.
“So what’s the booth?” Jenna asks.
“Not sure yet. Dean Pelton won’t tell me.” Jeff said.
Cheers can be heard throughout the cafeteria. Dean Pelton has beaten Dean Spreck for parking for the fair. The students dress as chess pieces celebrate with Dean Pelton. “Eat that Spreck!” Dean Pelton shouts.
Dean Spreck groans in arrogance as he and his student chess pieces walk away. “Yeah! And tell your King piece that I would checkmate him any day!” Madison shouts in her Queen Chess piece costume.
“Okay, too personal.” Dean Pelton said.
“Sorry.” Madison said. She mouths to the City College King piece as he looks back, “Checkmate any day!”
It is the morning of Saturday. The Greendale school fair is filled with vendors preparing their booths in the quad. Midway rides and games have been setup as people wait patiently for the ticket booth to open. Jeff and Jenna stand in front of their booth. A big cage with a sign hanging on it.
“Fair Security?” Jenna asks as she reads the sign.
Dean Pelton drives by in a security golf cart wearing a police uniform. “Aye Jeff, Jenna! Good to see that you’re here for your booth. As you can see, you will be detaining fellow fair members to be put in this cage if they cause a fair foul.” He said.
“Didn’t this happened on Modern Family?” Jenna asks.
“Dean, how is this even a booth?” Jeff asks in frustration.
“Well Jeff, not all booths are to earn money or fundraise. Also we still don’t have any security guards for this big of an event.” Dean Pelton said. He gets off the security golf cart and takes out a pair of windbreakers, caps and the jail key. He gives them to Jeff and Jenna. “Here are your uniforms, the keys to the cage and the security cart. You will receive a text telling you who to deantain. Have fun you guys.” Dean Pelton said as he leaves.
Jenna and Jeff groan as they put on their windbreakers and caps. Jenna takes out her aviators and puts them on. They get on the security golf cart and start the engine.
“This is going to be horrible.” Jenna said.
“At least we’re not working the Hug Garrett booth.” Jeff said as they drive off.
The fair is in full swing as people enjoy the fair. The scream of excitement from people can be heard from the rides they are on. Madison walking pass the various vendors eating cotton candy. She notices Chang sitting inside a dunk tank. She walks up to him.
“Oh hey, Chang.” Madison said.
“Great, Rainbow Dash is here.” Chang said.
“I thought you were doing stuff for the school board.” Madison said.
“I am. That’s why I’m in this dunk tank. Every time someone dunks me, the board gives a hundred dollars to the campus.” Chang said.
“Oh, that’s great.” Madison said.
“As if. Nobody has dunk me yet. I’ve been sitting here for three hours.” Chang said.
“Well then. I’ll dunk you.” Madison said.
She walks up to the bullseye trigger. “Whoa, hold it Senorita!” Chang protests. Madison stops. “Hit it, like everyone else.” He said.
Madison looks around. “Um, where’s the balls?” She asks.
“I don’t know. Go find it.” Chang said.
Madison groans. “When I come back, you are getting dunked.” She said as she walks off in search for the dunk tank balls.
“Come on. I didn’t do nothing!” Leonard said as Jenna locks him up in the jailhouse. The jailhouse is filled with people.
“Shut up Leonard, everyone knows you cheat at ring toss.” Jeff said from the security golf cart.
Jenna walks back to the security golf cart. “It’s almost lunch. Want to get a bite somewhere?” Jenna asks. She takes out her phone to see if she got any text messages for any more people to send to the jailhouse.
“What to get a sandwich from Shirley’s booth?” Jeff asks.
“Yeah, and while we’re at it we can get our next person.” Jenna said.
“Who?” Jeff asks.
Jenna gives her phone to Jeff as he looks in surprise to see Annie Edison’s name on the last text.
Eric, Ella and Leo are waiting in the long line for the bumper cars. Leo is behind Eric and Ella holding a big stuff animal cat.
“Ugh, why the hell is this line so long? We’ve been on this line for the whole day.” Eric asks.
“It’s because this bumper car booth is the latest and revolutionary bumper cars in bumper car history. The area has slopes and the cars are filled with see through wire lights that light up when you get hit. Also the song track they play is very up to date.” Ella said.
“Man! Now I want to go on it so badly!” Leo said in frustration.
Brett Peters walks by eating popcorn. “Hey losers! Good luck getting on, I heard some gang is hogging on to their cars after they pawned everyone.” He said as he continues walking away.
Eric looks confuse at this information. “Wait how can a gang hold up their cars, I thought bumper cars are supposed to be bumped?” He asks.
“The cars are designed to light up when you get hit, not when you hit someone.” Ella replies.
“Man!” Leo said. “Hey! Losers! Stop hogging the bumper cars!” He shouts.
A man walks out from the bumper car area, it is Mike Chilada. “Hey! Who the hell said we can’t hog the bumper cars?” He shouts to the line.
“The man with Mr. Whiskers.” Leo shouts hold up the stuff animal cat. Eric and Ella look at Leo weirdly. “What? A lot of people call their cats Mr. Whiskers.” Leo said.
“How did you even get that?” Ella asks.
“When you beat us, then we’ll leave but for now. Wait your turn, losers!” Mike shouts to them as he laughs manically. He goes back to his bumper car.
Eric shakes his head. “It is so on.” He said.
At Shirley’s sandwich booth, Jeff and Jenna stop their security cart in front of the booth. Shirley, Abed, Britta and Annie are hard at work making sandwiches.
“Hi, Jeff! Jenna!” Shirley said happily.
“There you two are! We were wondering what you two were doing.” Britta said.
“Just working our booth.” Jeff said.
“Is it a cop theme one?” Abed asks, pointing out their uniforms.
“Sort of.” Jenna replies.
“So you guys taking a break to get some lunch?” Annie asks.
“Actually, we’re here for you.” Jenna said.
“What?” Annie asks in confusion.
“Where were you this morning between 9am to 9:10am?” Jeff asks.
“Oh, that was the break Shirley gave us before we started working. She really got us working hard.” Annie said.
“We got a report saying you tried to get a stuff cat at the.” Jenna said reading the text on her phone. “Penny jar guessing booth.” She said.
“Hey, I guess those pennies correctly. The vendor won’t give me the stuffie.” Annie said.
“Well, it’s missing.” Jeff said.
“Annie, we are not accusing you of anything but we need to put you in custody till this is sorted out.” Jenna said.
“How long is that going to take?” Annie asks.
“The whole day.” Jenna said. Annie thinks for a moment. She quickly runs off. Jenna and Jeff sighs. “Should we get her?” Jenna asks Jeff.
“Lunch first and then we’ll chase.” Jeff said.
Back at the bumper car line, Eric and Leo are still stuck in line. Ella is holding Mr. Whiskers now. “Now, where the hell did you come from?” She asks.
Annie comes running past them. She stops and back tracks in front of them.
“Say, where did you guys get that?” Annie asks looking at Mr. Whiskers.
“Found it by a jar of pennies.” Leo said.
“You stole this!” Annie said.
“Next group of people!” The bumper car attendant shouts. Eric, Leo, Ella and Annie end up moving to the bumper car ride.
Mike and his gang are waiting in their bumper cars. Annie stops Leo before he enters his bumper car. “If I help you guys, will you return the stuffie?” Annie asks.
“Guys, we need to get in now!” Eric said in his bumper car. Mike’s bumper car crashes into Eric’s as the bumper cars start.
Madison throw another ball at the bullseye. Nothing happen.
“Ha! You suck!” Chang shouts.
“Shut up Chang!” Madison shouts back. She grabs another ball and throws it. Nothing happen. Madison growls. “I’ll dunk you sooner or later.” She said.
Jeff and Jenna are riding around the fair in the security golf cart. Jeff is behind the wheel and Abed has tagged along in the back.
“So what are you going to do when you capture Annie?” Abed asks.
“I don’t know. Lock her up until this is resolved.” Jeff said.
“But, do you really want to do that?” Abed asks.
“Of course not but I want to at least be a good example to Jenna.” Jeff said.
“Hold on. You’re using me as an excuse?” Jenna asks. “You can’t use me as an excuse because you’re perfectly fine with chasing Annie.” Jenna said.
“No, I’m not.” Jeff replies.
“Yes, you are.” Jenna said.
They start arguing. Jeff stops the cart. “Can we agree that if we find Annie, we won’t arrest her?” Jeff asks.
“Fine.” Jenna said.
They come across the bumper cars where Mike and his gang is beating Eric, Ella, Leo and Annie in bumper car. They stop and get off. They walk up to the bumper cars.
“Whoa, wait your turn.” The bumper car attendant said.
“Out!” Jenna shouts at the bumper car attendant. He walks away.
“What’s going on here?” Jeff asks.
“Hey, it’s forehead!” Mike shouts.
Jeff groans. "Not you again." Jeff said.
Mike parks his bumper car in front of Jeff. “Look at you! Here to relieve your girlfriend and her friends from their ass whooping.” Mike shouts in Jeff’s face.
Jeff giggles, smiling at Mike. Jeff punch Mike in the face. Mike hits the ground. Mike’s gang get out of their bumper cars and start advancing toward Jeff, Jenna and Abed. Annie, Eric, Ella and Leo with Mr. Whiskers get out of their bumper cars and stand besides Jeff.
“Guys.” Eric said.
Jenna notices Mr. Whiskers. “Is that the stuff animal that cause all this?” She asks.
“Well…” Leo said before Annie steps on his foot. “Yes.” He said.
“Abed, I’ve never been in a fight before. What do I do?” Ella asks Abed.
“Just reenact scenes from Karate Kid. The original. That’s what I usually do.” Abed said.
Mike gets up. “Time to kick your ass again.” He shouts.
“That was five years ago and we kicked your ass.” Jeff said.
“Let’s see you do it again then.” Mike shouts as him and his gang charge at them.
Madison is still trying to knock Chang into the dunk tank. A group of students walk past her. She overhears one of the students said, “Hurry up. We’re going to miss the fight at the bumper cars.”
“Fight?” Madison said out loud as she turn her head the moment she throws the ball at the bullseye. The ball hits it and Chang falls into the dunk tank. Madison cheers at her accomplishment.
Sometime later, Mike and his gang are lock up inside the jailhouse. Jeff and Jenna’s study groups are at Shirley’s sandwich booth, eating sandwiches. Jeff is spotting a black eye and Leo has his shirt torn.
“Well it’s good that’s over with.” Annie said.
“All because of a stupid stuff cat.” Jenna said holding Mr. Whiskers.
“Hey, he is a very intelligent stuff cat.” Leo said taking Mr. Whiskers.
“Well I got the school board to donate a hundred dollars to Greendale.” Madison said.
“Good for you.” Britta said as they high five.
Jeff receives a text. “Great, there’s an incident at the Ferris Wheel.” Jeff said. He silence his phone. “I’m sure someone else will handle it.” He said.
“Jeff.” Annie said.
Jeff sighs. “Come on Jenna. We got some work to do.” He said as they leave. The sound of the CSI: Miami theme can be heard.
“Ella turn that off.” Shirley said pointing to Ella who has set up a pair of speakers by the booth.
“Sorry.” Ella said as she turn off the speakers playing the song.
Dean Pelton is managing the Hug Garrett booth.
“Come on, step right up and hug Garrett.” Dean Pelton said.
“I need to use the bathroom.” Garrett said.
“Not now Garrett! You’re working.” Dean Pelton said.
