  • Bender's joke begins ""A naked blonde walks into a bar with a poodle under one arm and a two-foot salami under the other. She lays the poodle on the table. Bartender says,'I suppose you won't be needing a drink.' Naked lady says..." He then falls through the ceiling and due to his shock, forgets about telling the joke yelling "Oh shit!" The next lines uttered by him are "Forgot my pencil" by means of an explanation to his confused classmates as to how he got back into the library. The joke was ad-libbed by Judd Nelson and as thus, does not have an actual punchline. Various explanations have been suggested such as "You're not kidding, I thought I was buying a daschund", "How'd you know I was a Mormon?", "You think I want to remember a day like this?" or "No but the poodle could do with one".

  • John (Bender) pulled the fire alarm causing the whole school to be evacuated. Due to his language and attitude towards Principal Vernon he is given additional detentions for nine weeks afterward. Claire skipped class to go shopping. Presumably, she thought she would never end up in detention because she believed her father would have the power and influence to see that she wouldn't have to spend time somewhere she felt she did not belong. Andy assaulted a weaker student in the boy's locker room: he was trying to "tape his butt cheeks together" When the tape was removed, it caused some of the student's hair and skin to rip off also. Andy did this to impress his father and his friends who expected him to act the same way he had in high school, to be a "winner". Brian brought a flare gun to enact his plans to commit suicide. He was planning to do this because he failed Shop Class and knew the hassle he received from his parents for failing one class would be more than he could deal with emotionally. The flare gun went off in Brian's locker. Allison's reason for being in detention is revealed later than the other characters. Finally, she claims she's there because she had "nothing better to do".

  • Because Bender is the most-despised student in the school. Vernon had to tolerate his antics throughout the years he attended Shermer High School. Edit (Coming Soon)
