Full story[]

The episode begins at Wagstaff School with Jimmy Jr. and Zeke at their lockers. Jimmy Jr. suggests a slogan for "tank-bottoms," their new innovative fashion, while Zeke hypes him up. Meanwhile, Tina gives a tour of the school to a new boy whom Zeke realizes is someone he knew at his old school. Zeke becomes apprehensive. Tina introduces the boy as Will to Jimmy Jr. and Zeke and her siblings, Gene and Louise, who just came to witness this. Will greets himself to Zeke, and Zeke tries to figure out if Will recognizes him. Zeke is silent while Tina and Jimmy Jr. talk about his and his friend's idea, and Zeke leaves in a hurry to avoid Will. Jimmy Jr. excuses his friend's behavior, and Will reveals he went to the same school with him in third grade, bringing up his nickname, Pee Streak Zeke. Tina and Will depart to return on Tina's tour of the school to the "booger wall" that Louise suggested they see.

At the restaurant, Bob is sweeping the pavement outside until Jimmy Pesto starts mocking him from his pizzeria. Bob tries to retort until Jimmy walks over to Bob. Jimmy starts complaining about how people aren't coming to his restaurant anymore after his rat and roach infestation. They begin having a normal conversation, discussing Bob's burger of the day: the Burger Ball Pit. However, Jimmy decides to return to his restaurant and insults the Belcher again.

Meanwhile, at school, Gene and Louise are at the playground during recess. Jimmy Jr. and Zeke are at the edge of the play area, with Jimmy Jr. continuing to talk about their entrepreneurship. However, this time, Zeke is inattentive to the conversation. Jimmy Jr. realizes and sees Zeke staring at Tina and Will at the tetherball court. While Tina and Will talk about tetherball from far away, Will looks back at Zeke. Will goes and walks to Zeke while Jimmy Jr. goes back to talking. Seeing Will coming, Zeke runs away and leaves alone. Louise and Gene notice Zeke's strange behavior.

Bob, Linda, and Teddy are at the restaurant while Linda is prepping the booths. Bob takes Teddy's order and asks why he isn't getting the burger of the day today. Teddy tells him why, and Bob tries to listen to his friend while not getting offended until he sees Jimmy and Trev take out a sign featuring the pizzeria's new special: the Pizza Ball Pit. Bob is shocked because Jimmy stole his idea. The Belcher goes to Jimmy's restaurant and confronts the pizza man. Jimmy explains how his special is different, even though it's precisely the same, except that it's pizza and not a burger. Pesto also insults Bob while doing so. Bob becomes frustrated and returns to his restaurant.

Gene and Louise are heading to the cafeteria for lunch until they meet Jimmy Jr. and Zeke again. Jimmy Jr. asks why Zeke doesn't want to go to the restaurant, but all Zeke gives are nervous, unhelpful responses. Jimmy Jr. realizes it may be about Will, but Zeke doesn't want to answer his best friend. Zeke runs away from them again and hides in the library. Jimmy Jr. starts suspecting Will bullied Zeke in their old school. In the lunch line, Gene and Louise devise ways to get back at Will for Zeke because they don't want Will to tease Tina next.

The plan is that the two of them get juice boxes for lunch, but Gene doesn't drink his. Once they're sitting at the cafeteria, they offer Tina and Will seats across from theirs. Gene has a hidden carton below the table, and when they sit down, Louise distracts Will with small talk. When she says the codewords, "interesting ravioli," Gene will shoot the juice at the bully's crotch, making it look like he peed his pants. Will will stand up, and Louise will direct everyone's attention to him, calling him Pee Streak Will.

Jimmy Jr. overhears the Belcher's plan, but he doesn't think getting revenge on Will is a good idea.

Back at the restaurant, Bob is still bitter that his best friend didn't choose the burger of the day and that Jimmy Pesto stole his idea. When Bob sees a line forming outside Jimmy's pizzeria, he becomes even more upset. When Mort enters the restaurant, Teddy tells the mortician to order the burger of the day to cheer Bob up, but it doesn't work.

Gene and Louise are sitting down at lunch while Jimmy Jr. is a few seats down. Rudy comes to eat with the Belchers, but they advise him not to sit on the opposite side of them, being vague and not telling Rudy about their plan to frame Will. Jimmy Jr. sees that Zeke is back at the cafeteria and calls him over. Zeke tells his best friend how he got in trouble with Mr. Frond for not eating. Jimmy Jr. and Louise try consoling Zeke, and Louise tells the boy about their plan to get back at Will for 'bullying him.' Zeke tries telling them something, but they won't let him. Gene and Louise's plan begins when they bring Tina and Will over after seeing them with their lunch trays. When Louise says the magic words, Gene can't shoot the juice carton because Zeke is trying to stop him from underneath the table. As a result, Gene accidentally sprays the juice on Zeke's crotch and makes it look like he peed his pants. Will realizes that the Belcher kids intended to frame him. Gene and Louise tell Will their plan, but Zeke reveals he used to be the bully, not Will. Gene does a spit-take and spits juice on Will's face. Will reiterates this and goes to clean himself up. Jimmy Jr. asks Zeke again what happened with him and Will.

Zeke explains how hard it was to make new friends because of how much his family moves, and his lack of impulse control made him wrestle every kid at the schools he attended. When he made a kid pee at Rocky Creek Elementary, a group of students believed it was funny and invited Zeke to hang out with them. Wanting to impress them, Zeke continued to bully other kids with his wrestling. He adds that Will was one of the kids he used to tease at the school.

The kids at the table are not happy hearing how their friend used to bully other students, but Zeke tells them he's changed. Jimmy Jr. suggests that Zeke should apologize to Will, but Zeke is nervous and doesn't want to speak to Will. When the lunch bell rings, Will returns from cleaning himself, and Jimmy Jr. asks the boy to meet him and Zeke outside after school. Will RSVPs and tells Pesto he will. Tina and Will resume their tour together.

Bob still resents Jimmy for stealing his idea, and he sees someone he believes is a reporter photographing Jimmy's restaurant. Bob returns to the pizzeria, intending to tell the reporter about Pesto's thievery. Linda, Teddy, and Mort try convincing him not to, but Bob's anger won't let him listen. Bob enters Jimmy's restaurant and sees him talking to the reporter, describing his 'original idea.' Bob walks up to the journalist, trying to tell the man about Jimmy's idea-stealing, but the Pesto keeps interrupting him. The reporter and Jimmy Pesto go to the kitchen, and Bob waits at the bar, still determined to tell the reporter about his Burger Balls.

When the school releases the children for home, Zeke tries to leave to evade Will, but Jimmy Jr. stops him. Gene and Louise come, and they all see Tina and Will heading out of the school. Jimmy Jr. tells Will that Zeke has something to say. Zeke apologizes to Will for bullying him. However, Will doesn't accept his former bully's apology because "he didn't even apologize for what he actually did." Will reveals that Zeke teased him about his lisp. Having a lisp himself, Jimmy Jr. becomes furious at Zeke.

Will adds on to Zeke's story from before. When he was trying to get Zeke to stop wrestling him, he said it in a lisp, and Zeke teased Will for it. Zeke tries expressing his regret again, but Jimmy Jr. is dumbfounded. He tells Zeke he might want to quit their entrepreneurship now. Zeke wants to prove his forgiveness, and Tina suggests licking the booger wall from before. Will seems okay with this. Zeke agrees, and the six return to school to have Zeke lick the wall.

Bob is still at Jimmy Pesto's Pizzeria, drinking the water Trev served him. He starts thinking about what Linda, Teddy, and Mort told him at his restaurant. When Pesto and the reporter finish their interview inside the kitchen, the reporter leaves, but Bob doesn't bother telling him anything. He decides to let Pesto keep his stolen idea since he still has many more of them, and he returns to his burger place. As Linda writes a check for Teddy, Bob tells him what happened at the pizzeria. Linda expresses how proud she is of her husband.

Back at school, Tina, Gene, Louise, Jimmy Jr., Zeke, and Will are at the booger wall. As Zeke is about to stick his tongue into the wall of boogers, Will stops him. Will and Jimmy Jr. accept Zeke's apology, and Jimmy Jr. remains best friends with Zeke. However, Zeke goes and licks the boogers anyway, and he chases the Belcher kids, Jimmy Jr., and Will upstairs of the school with his "booger tongue."
