    While the students are returning from a high-school trip, Alex and his friend Greg are seated in the back of the bus, with Chilean student Robert sitting closer to the front. Alex tries to draw Robert into a game of sock toss, but his reference to Robert as 'tamale head' doesn't help the situation. When the two boys cannot stop fighting with each other, the school recommends peer counseling, where it is soon learned that part of Alex's problem is that a girl he likes seems to be more interested in Robert than him. The two eventually agree to try harder to understand each other without resorting to slurs.

  • In the original Working It Out at Madison series produced for teenagers, this was the first episode of the first 'series', but presented last when it aired on television in 1993. This explains why Alex, who moved out in Breaking the Chain, is living at home in this episode, because Breaking the Chain, although aired earlier on television, was set afterwards.
