Chantay and Anya MacPherson witness the entire event from the caf line. Dave asks Chantay if she'll put him in her blog but, yet again, she refuses. Dave then pees in a jug and pours it in Bruce's locker to get back at him for their eariler altercation. He and Bruce decide to meet in the alley after school with the whole school spectating the fight. Before the fight, thinking that Bruce will kill him, Dave decides to give Chantay his David Bose jersey.
