Hmm, I'm used to seeing a BP thread here every week. OK, I'll make this one. This was, IMO, the best episode all season by far. With the exception of a brief appearance by Dana Pool, the whole thing was just the main characters. Pure character/dialogue stuff. Lots of insults, barbs, snippy exchanges, and the story moved along nicely. I got worried when Hook Lady appeared, but her presence actually helped the episode indirectly by leading to the principal and vp to get everything out into the open. Who else cringed when Rappaport was about to say why he thought the principal recommended the black teacher as his replacement, knowing it would be awful? I was actually caught by surprise. I thought he would just say that he likes her more as a friend or just doesn't want the vp to take over. I did not expect the racial thing. The secretary didn't do much, neither did Lipschitz. The whole episode was like a play, and it worked.
