Silver Lining
Teacher's Pest
“Teacher's Pest” is episode #531 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written by Torry Martin, and originally aired on November 1, 2003.


Mandy is assigned to work with Max on a school project. Unfortunately, Mandy and Max don't get along and have a hard time completing their assignment.


Max Hampton gets himself into a real "pickle." The class clown can sure work a crowd – but a good homework assignment? Forget it. He's more interested in joking about Mandy, who is the teacher's pet. His teasing of Mandy finally gets him more than detention: Mrs. Sweeny assigns them to work together on a project.

While Max only wants to do as little work as possible and have fun, Mandy does everything she can to make the project perfect. After seeing Mandy trying to do the whole project herself, Whit confronts her. "We’re supposed to help people despite what we think of them," he says. Mandy begins to see how Max needs encouragement, so she secretly gets him a birthday gift. She works more on Max’s part of the project until she realizes that trusting him might be the best encouragement she could give.

The due date for the project arrives. Max discovered that the gift was from Mandy, and he decided to actually complete his part...an electric-powered mouth that can crack walnuts! However, when Mandy calls him up to demonstrate it, it explodes. Mandy still praises Max for his work, and both students learn a lesson.

This plot section is too short and should be expanded. »
