Outside, the Recurring Raccoon runs by with cans of cat food and drops some of them in a police car and Diogee climb through an open window and eats some.
At the award show, Elliot calls the students inside and when Milo puts his glass down, it causes a pole to knock the door knob off, locking him out.

Mort tells Zack and Lydia to go out, but she passes out after saying “mind over matter Zack, mind over...I smell French toast”. Mort puts a helmet on Zack and pushes him on stage, only for Principal Midler to inadvertently knock it off of him and he walk off stage. In the basement, Milo finds stairs but they break and collapse. At the show, Principal Midler uses all two of her bad jokes and calls it a night and decides to give Milo his award the following day. Lydia comes out and claims she can perform, followed by Zack and paramedics. She calls them Santa and prepares to fight before passing out. Amanda decides to find Milo.
