- “In the beginning, I was skeptical it could be successful, but I was not skeptical it could be good. I was hoping for 13 episodes that my friends would like. It's a good lesson, isn't it?

- “Where do you want your ball mark, face or belly?”
- ―Erik (to Bart)[src]
'Erik is a fifth grader at Springfield Elementary School. He used to be friends with Bart, the first and the second boy, when they were younger. After Bart hits him to get him out in dodgeball, he caught the ball, which had been flung high into the air after hitting him, meaning that the fourth graders lost the game. This started a war in the school between the fourth and fifth graders. Eventually, when the fourth and fifth grades planned to commit a brawl after school, Bart realized that he and the 5th grader have the same sword-shaped scar on his hand.
