As part of a Life Skills field trip, Chuckie has to pretend to marry Fridge, Angelica to Susie, Harold to a girl named Harriet, who is just like him, Darryl to Brianna, and various others. Mr. Pangborn and Ms. O'Keats are chaperones for the trip. Chuckie feels like Fridge is ignoring him when the latter doesn't respond to anything the former says. Harold and Harriet quickly bond over their common interests. At the bridal shop, Angelica is trying on a dress, despite it being unnecessary for the field trip, but she gets stuck in it, so she and Susie are left behind when the latter helps her.
Meanwhile, Tommy, Dil, Phil and Lil sneak out of school so that Lil can get an autograph from her idol, a famous soccer player.

- When the classroom is first shown, Fridge is next to Chuckie, but when Chuckie stands up and raises his hand, the seat to his left is empty. In the next shot, he's back in the seat.
- Angelica: Darryl, Darryl, Darryl!
- Harold: Angelica, Angelica, Angelica!
- Chuckie: (draws a name out of the bag, fearing the worst) Leslie Kaminski? There's no Leslie in this class.
- Fridge: That's me.
- Chuckie: Fridge Kaminski? (giggles) Your name is Leslie?! (pounds his fist and lays his face on the table)
- Fridge: (growls angrily at him)
- Chuckie: (stops, now nervous) Nice name.
- Tommy: (He, Dil, and the twins mistakenly believe that the police at the school are after them; They all get on their knees, and his hands come behind his head) Okay, we ditched! We admit it!
- Lil: (has her arms up) I'm sorry!
- Phil: (has his arms up) I'll never do it again! I swear! Don't take me away!
- Dil: (points at Tommy from his place laying on the ground) He's a bad influence.
- Tommy: (rolls his eyes angrily at him)
- Harold: You know, you don't have to agree with me on everything.
- Harriet: I feel the exact same way.
- Harold: See? Like that! I'm moving out! (moves to a different row of seats)
- Chuckie: (witnesses the falling out from his seat) Wow, I thought they'd be together forever. (turns to Fridge, and adjusts his glasses) You know, this marriage thing is a lot harder than it looks. (Fridge subtly reminds him of the deafness in his left ear) Oh.
- Angelica: Bossy!
- Susie: Big-mouth!
- Angelica: I wish we never got married!
- Susie: WE DIDN'T!!!
