Ezra, after putting his sleeping bag on his bed, which is below Kyle's, notes that Kyle tries to throw his books out the window, and everyone tells him to stop, and he says that camping is making pranks and jokes, as shown in movies or camping series he saw, where Ezra, Maudie and Ava realize that he confused a little bit about what camping is. Ava then tells Kyle to apologize to Ezra for picking up the books and for being mean to Archie in regards to his fear of being ill while he sleeps outside. Kyle excuses everyone, but even so, Ava allows him to be able to make pranks, but with lots of activities at the camp, he wouldn't have enough time, but in fact, they ended up realizing that they were completely wrong, one Kyle had a lot of time to making pranks, like screaming like a heron in front of everyone, making ketchup fall on Diet's sausage, and also putting a rubber snake during the tug of war between fifth graders and Mr. McGillick, Miss Tan and Mrs Parides, where it wasn't just that while they were preparing dinner.

While they are preparing dinner, Ava is bitten by Kyle, and Kyle leaves under the table behind them, and Ava is angry that he is not helping with anything, and Archie orders her to make napkins in the normal shape instead of the swan shape. , which takes a long time to finish, but she considers that something very sad and boring. Archie decides to pick up James and Justin, who are out there playing instead of helping with chores, and Ava is very angry to see that no one is concentrating on her duties. Mr McGillick starts asking from his cell phone, which he had left on the teachers' table, where he notes that Kyle was laughing with a pot behind his back, which leaves everyone confused by the fact that he has to cut bread instead of make the bread, noting that it confused. During dinner, Mr McGillick calls Kyle, telling him to go to the kitchen, and when he goes there, Mr McGillick accuses him of hiding his cell phone in the rice pot, and for Ezra, Maudie and Ava to go there to see what when it comes, they are shocked by it, and he tries to deny it, but Mr McGillick, as a punishment, orders him to go to dinner at the teachers' table, seeing that a prank with the principal was a high level of madness.

During dinner, Mr McGillick decides to turn on his cell phone to check the weather forecast, however, the same note that does not, and accuses Kyle for it, where everyone starts to think that he got too heavy this time.

Ezra also says that he didn't think about food, but in fact it was a lie, because he was eating a lot while Ava argues considering the trick that Kyle did a silly thing to do, but Maudie says that, despite being silly, it is not the thing for Kyle to do that, since all the other pranks were to scare people and make them laugh, and it shows that everyone is laughing because the teachers' asses are completely soiled with flour, where they see that everyone is laughing, concluding that Kyle would not hide the director's cell phone in a pot of rice, as he would be disrespectful to people, and Ezra and Ava finally realize why Kyle had the pot of flour at that time.

After finally understanding this, Ezra starts to signal that he was choking and Ava slaps him on the back, but he reveals that he is not choking, but that during Mr Barker's ICT Club, they had a lesson on how to fix the phone when it ends up getting wet it accidentally, and then when wetting your own cell phone, put it in the rice pot, believing that the rice will absorb the water from your cell phone, and it worked. Ava decides to conclude that Kyle dropped the director's cell phone in the water and put it in the rice pot to fix it, but Ezra remembers that Kyle is not at Mr Barker's ICT Club, making them more sure that the Kyle hadn't done that, and they started feeling sorry for him having to stay at the teachers' table. Then, they begin to reproduce the crime events, where Kyle was under the teachers' table, representing salt, Ava and Archie, like ketchup and mustard, folding napkins, Ezra and Maudie, like glasses, they were in the kitchen, Caitlin, like the pink cup, was hitting the tables, Mr McGillick, like the pea, left his cell phone on the teachers' table, and James and Justin, like the teaspoons, were outside playing, and Archie, like the mustard, went to get them, but they didn't vote and Ava, representing the ketchup, went after them.

In a flashback, Ava sends James and Justin to help with dinner, where they were playing, and Archie, who was at the sink washing his hands, ends up being scared by her, and they promise to come back. Ava remembers that dinner is over and it's time to clear the tables, but Maudie concludes who did and decides to send everyone over to talk to Kyle. Kyle is curious, and Maudie says it was Archie, however, Ava disagrees, since she didn't see him with his cell phone, that was because he dropped it in the sink full of water when he was startled by her. Ezra finally realizes that Archie is also at Mr. Barker's ICT Club, and he knew that rice would fix the phone, and then, while helping Ava make the curries, he put the phone in the rice pot. Kyle gets very angry when he realizes this, and then decides to go talk to him, but they realize that he is washing the dishes together with Mr. McGillick, and Kyle decides not to snitch and screw his friend, mainly because the reason made Kyle also take a little guilt, especially because at the beginning of the camp, he was very mean to Archie regarding his fear of being sick when he sleeps outside his home, and because of that, Archie took Mr. McGillick's cell phone to call his mum, where Kyle felt bad and decided to admit it was him, but it wasn't necessary.

Kyle apologizes to Archie, but refers to someone else, for being mean and making him afraid of being sick, and he accepts it. After that, Ezra put Mr McGillick's cell phone in the rice pot and fixed it, leaving him completely grateful and letting them use his cell phone to record the case report, including Miss Tan's, and Kyle was recruited back to the show as the host, where he interrupts, saying that he is going to be a ghost, and he appears dressed as a ghost, but Ava denies that, saying that he is the host, and the same denies, saying that he broke the sheet, and Ezra finally realizes that it was with the sheet on his bed.
