|“||Some say he doesn't even exist.
But you just said he's the janitor.
Some say I said he's the janitor.
Melissa forgot her math book as she retrieves it alongside Milo and Zack. As she retrieves the book from the classroom, however, they forgot to take the key Principal Milder entrusted them with, and as the door of the classroom is locked, they go on a quest to find the janitor, a.k.a. "The Great Key-Keeper".
Milo, Zack, and Melissa return to Jefferson County Middle School after school hours, because Melissa forgot her math book in one of the classrooms. As they head in hoping to find it, Melissa and Milo discuss the existence of the "Great Key-Keeper" aka Fred the janitor, who supposedly sends students on "quests towards enlightenment." After obtaining a key to the classroom from Principal Milder, the trio recover the book, only to forget the key inside the room, which locks behind them. Despite Zack's disbelief, Milo and Melissa then believe that Fred is providing signs that will help them find him so that they can get back into the classroom and recover the key.
The trio's "quest" takes them into the janitorial office, where they encounter Mr. Drako, and then into a locked storeroom that opens up into the old school library. They then discover a secret passage that leads to their science classroom, eventually making their way outside, where Coach Mitchell informs them that he saw someone on the roof. Investigating, they fail to locate Fred but succeed in discovering a roof hatch that enables them to get back into the class to recover the key, which they promptly return to Principal Milder. Fred then appears to Milo and Melissa and asks for their help in cleaning up the mess caused by their "quest." They then try to get Zack's attention so they can show him "The KeyKeeper" but by the time Zack turns around, he's gone.
