"The One with Mr. Reason" is the 1st episode of the fifth season of Pepper Ann. It aired on September 9, 2000.

Synopsis

It's a new semester and Pepper Ann is assigned woodshop with Mr. Reason, a teacher who uses tough love to make his students excel, which Pepper Ann doesn't like.

Plot

Pepper Ann is excited about starting the new school semester until she learns that she has shop class with Mr. Reason who is notoriously harsh. Nicky and Milo tell her to give him a chance, but she finds herself intimidated by his blunt and curt directions as well as the class itself. Later, Pepper Ann is told to climb a rope in gym, sing a solo in school choir and, to make things more complicated, now has to ask someone to the Sadie Hawkins dance; making the semester much more complicated than she needed it to be.

Pepper Ann gets the idea to create a petition to stop having shop class be a requirement and manages to get numerous signatures from everyone, minus Milo and Nicky. When she presents the petition to Mr. Reason, he leaves without a fight and decides to retire early; forcing Principal Hickey to have Ms. Bladdar replace him. Pepper Ann, happy over her victory, climbs the rope, sings a solo and asks Craig to Sadie Hawkins. Milo and Nicky point out that Mr. Reason's teaching methods worked on her and Pepper Ann decides to go and ask him back.

Pepper Ann finds Mr. Reason working at Burger Fortress (he could not afford his fishing boat) and Pepper Ann demands that he return, before accusing him of "taking the easy way out". Pepper Ann proceeds to do the work in shop class while the rest of the class sits around under Ms. Bladdar's watch. Mr. Reason finally returns and gives the students a rousing speech about pushing themselves to the limit. Everyone decides to take the class seriously once he offers them Burger Fortress fries.
