Adam and Principal Tater encourage Derby to run for president of the student council, but Derby gets carried away with his quest for power and campaigns to be their new boss, the school superintendent.
Echo is mistaken for a genius after Adam secretly tweaks her science-fair project. She decides to leave Finnegan High when she's offered a full scholarship to Great Northern University, and it's up to Adam to persuade her to come back.
Adam's plan to take Echo to the school dance is foiled by Principal Tater, who recruits Adam for a stakeout to catch a notorious prankster. Meanwhile, Ivy tries to garner sympathy votes for the Queen of the Dance crown by taking Derby as her date.
