He visits Milhouse and confesses that he snitched on him and Samantha to Mr. Stankey. Humiliated, he and Bart fight over Bart's actions much to the delight Milhouse's parents. Bart then ends the fight by hitting Milhouse with the Magic 8 ball destroying it in the process and calming themselves down.
