While on a camping trip, Brendon and a female classmate, Loni, start becoming an item, but Melissa and Jason can't stand the newest member of their movie troupe. Meanwhile, a foreign student plays a nasty prank on McGuirk.
Duane wants to produce a rock opera based on Franz Kafka's "The Metamorphosis" but runs into some stiff opposition from Brendon and his own project, a fictional meeting between Louis Braille and Louis Pasteur.
Brendon's baby sister Josie has a habit of shoving marbles into her nostrils, so he produces an educational film about this for extra credit in class. Coach McGuirk also turns to Erik for advice about buying a new house.
