Eddie Wraps the Teacher's Phone in Rubber Bands and Gets sent to Principal Prickly's Office is Sarah West's first grounded video out of Eddie from Recess.
Eddie is bored, so he decides to pull a prank on the teacher. He takes some rubber bands and wraps them around the phone on Miss Grotke's desk. Then he sneaks out of the classroom and calls Miss Grotke on his cell phone, and Miss Grotke realizes that she can't answer her phone because it is covered in rubber bands, which puzzles her. Randall sees this happening and tells Miss Finster about the prank. Miss Finster sends Eddie to Principal Prickly's Office, where Principal Prickly gives Eddie a level 16 detention.
Eddie: I'm bored. There's no one to pick on because TJ and his friends are going in a field trip, and the rest of the bullies are in detention. What should I do? I know! I'll pull a prank on one of the teachers! Ha ha ha!
(Eddie walks down the hallways, looking for a classroom that is empty. He pokes his head into Miss Grotke's classroom, which is empty at the moment)
Eddie: Good. There's no one in there.
(Randall rushes over to Miss Finster)
Randall: Miss Finster, Miss Finster, Eddie pulled a prank on Miss Grotke!
Miss Finster: What kind of prank was it?
Randall: He tied up thirty rubber bands on the phone that was on her desk, and then he attempted to call her, but she couldn't answer the phone because of all the rubber bands.
Miss Finster: Good Boy Randall, I'll deal with Eddie.
Eddie: Uh Oh, it's Miss Finster!
Miss Finster: Eddie, how dare you prank a teacher by tying up her phone in rubber bands so she can't answer it when it rings? That's it, it's a one way ticket to Principal Prickly's office. Right Now!
(Miss Finster drags Eddie to Principal Prickly's Office)
Principal Prickly: This is a very serious situation. A very serious situation indeed. We don't ever prank teachers by wrapping their phones in rubber bands. You see pulling pranks on the teachers undermines authority. It demonstrates impertinence, disrespect, laziness. Now I can't keep you up with your schemes. But Miss Finster assures me it's unacceptable. I have no choice but to give you detention level 16.
Eddie: Level 16? I wish you were dead.
Principal Prickly: Make that level 17, are you ready to push me any further?
