We're back at Oliphant High with Danny and Chin-Kee.
The two of them are late to class, probably because Danny doesn't want anyone to see Chin-Kee with him.
In class (specifically, American Government), the teacher asks the class a question and, of course, Chin-Kee knows and volunteers the answer, which totally embarrasses Danny.
The same thing happens in every class Danny's in, regardless of the content. Chin-Kee knows everything and he isn't afraid to show it—loudly. Even in Spanish.
At lunchtime Chin-Kee breaks out some seriously gross stuff for food, like fried cat gizzards (or, in Chin-Kee's Chinglish, "flied cat gizzards wiff noodle"). Danny really doesn't want to be around Chin-Kee.
Then one of the jocks, Steve, stops by and congratulates Danny on making the varsity basketball team.
They joke around a little in the way that jocks do until Steve notices Chin-Kee.
Danny tries to distract Steve from talking to Chin-Kee, but that only gives Chin-Kee the chance to do something really mean: he takes Steve's can of Coke and pees in it before putting the can back on the table.
Why? It's a joke. One that, by the way, results in Steve barfing up his Coke, though he has no idea about what Chin-Kee has done.
After class Danny has to go to detention because of how tardy he was, so Chin-Kee goes off to find some "Amellican girl to bind feet and bear Chin-Kee's children."
Are you thinking whatever? So is Danny.
While Danny walks toward detention, he sees a couple of white students laugh and make a slanted-eye face, which kind of makes him feel sucky.
Then he runs into Melanie, so he tries to apologize for Chin-Kee's behavior toward her.
Melanie's pretty cool about the whole thing, but when he asks her out on a date, she lets him know that she just thinks of him as a good friend. Ouch.
Danny, of course, thinks it's all Chin-Kee's fault and tries to convince Melanie that he's not like Chin-Kee at all.
But Melanie tells him that's not it.
Although… she does tell him that his teeth buck out a little. So she gives him her uncle's business card (he's an orthodontist)—you know, because that's what a friend would do.
Danny's depressed now. Sitting in the gym. Alone.
Then Steve walks up and asks if he's okay. (Steve's not a bad guy.)
They start talking and Danny reveals that for the last three years he's transferred to three different high schools, because every year Chin-Kee visits him and ruins his social life at school.
Steve tries to convince him that Oliphant High is different, that people aren't that hateful here.
Then he offers to buy Danny a Coke, which ends up triggering Danny. He asks (kind of defensively) "What, so I can pee in it?" which makes alarm bells go off in Steve's head. So that's what happened to his Coke earlier.
Steve ends up barfing again into a trashcan while Danny walks off.
