"Gus' Last Stand" is the first segment of the seventeenth episode of Recess.
After his old victim moved away, Gelman picks on Gus. He tries to get his friends to help deal with him. The first try was that they always stick together but it didn’t work for long. The second try is that Gus would tell a teacher on Gelman. Gus tells Miss Finster she tells Gelman that if she sees him hurting Gus or any other kid on her playground she’ll take him to Principal Prickly’s office faster than he can say detention. The second Miss Finster left, Gelman throws Gus in the trash can and tells him if he tells a teacher on him again that he’ll beat him up. Reluctant to go outside for recess, T.J. comes up with a way for Gus to be outside without Gelman seeing him. Gus is disguised as “An Old Man Who Plays Tetherball” but Gelman was able to see through the disguise. At home, Gus tells his father about his bully problem with using war scenarios. His dad tells him that he should stand up to the bully. Gus gets the courage to stand up for himself and Gelman beats him up but after seeing Gus be brave, all the kids on the playground have the courage to stand up to Gelman and he storms away.
