Logline

Robin convinces the Titans to go back to school with him so he can finally become the all-American class president-type he's dreamed of being.[1]

Synopsis

Beast Boy is telling a story of the Titans' summer, calling the time they spent at a lake magical. However, he switches the tale to a funeral for Robin, who protests that he's still alive. Beast Boy claims he's adding emotional depth to their summer, and then went back to the story when they were leaving and they were about to kiss but Robin interrupts again, saying he is not dead. Then he tells the Titans that summer's over and asks if they know what that means, but Cyborg believes he is referring to Labor Day and the Titans begin cheering for the holiday. Robin stops them and says that they're going back to school, confusing the Titans.

Cyborg reminds him that they're teenagers with no parents and asks why he would want to give that up. Robin claims that their unique personalities are perfect for a school environment and assigns each of the Titans labels: Starfire is the homecoming queen, Cyborg is the jock, Raven is the basket case, and Beast Boy is the nerd. Beast Boy questions his label as he says he thought he was more of a bohemian, but Robin tells him to shut it as school isn't about who you are on the inside, but dressing up the outside so that everyone can judge you by your looks. Raven asks Robin for his label and he claims to be the all-American boy next door who stands up to bullies, becomes student body president and valedictorian. Raven tells Robin that they're not going to school just to be assigned arbitrary labels, but they change their mind when Robin offers to buy them new clothes.

The Titans dress up as their labels and enter Jump City High School where Starfire says feels like the beginning of a wonderful experience. Raven and Beast Boy begins to agree with her, but Robin interrupts by telling her that Raven is too optimistic and to stick to her label. He says that they have to find a bully that he can take down, but Cyborg says he has English class. Beast Boy offers to walk with him to his class, but Robin stops them, claiming that they can't hang out together as Cyborg's a jock who would never be friends with a nerd. He accuses Beast Boy of trying to break down social boundaries and crane kicks him.

The principal catches the Titans and gives them detention in the library. Cyborg complains about being at the school for five minutes and being thrown in detention, but Robin says that as an all American boy, it's his duty to take down bullies. Raven scoffs at his label and Starfire admits that she's unsure who was the bully in the situation. Robin claims Beast Boy was trying to bully Cyborg into hanging out with him, and Beast Boy asks why he cares about labels so much when it's on the surface that counts. However, Robin scoffs at Beast Boy's words, claiming that high school kids have their parts to play and says that his next part to become student body president.

Some time later, Beast Boy tells Cyborg he made the academic decathlon and Raven announces that a piece she wrote made it to the school's paper. Beast Boy claims that they're learning much about themselves when they notice Robin, in his underwear, campaigning for student body president. He flips over to them and claims that he's naked at school, because the student body will have no choice but to vote for the best student body. Beast Boy and Cyborg laugh, but Robin singles out Beast Boy and crane kicks him. The principal spots them again and places them in detention. Starfire says she cannot believe they are in detention again and Beast Boy says he's going to miss the academic regional championships. Robin interrupts him by saying that the principal disqualified him from being the student body president. Raven tells Robin that he's missing the point of school which is about learning who you are and finding your place in the world. Robin tells her to stick to her label and announces that the only way to become the all American boy is that he has to be valedictorian.

After rigorously studying and taking his final test, Robin tells Cyborg, Raven, and Starfire that he knows his hard work paid off. Beast Boy informs the Titans that they've posted the valedictorian announcement. The Titans gather around the list and Starfire tells Robin he made the list. Robin cheers for becoming valedictorian, but Cyborg tells him that he's salutatorian which Raven says is second and Starfire announces that Beast Boy is valedictorian. Robin becomes enraged at being second and claims that he was supposed to be number one as he's the all American boy and crane kicks Beast Boy, Cyborg, Raven, and Starfire before throwing a bike on top of them. The principal catches them and expels them from the school, throwing them out.

Cyborg sarcastically thanks Robin for getting them kicked out and Starfire says that they will never learn their true potential. Then he admits that he shouldn't have assigned them those labels and Starfire says she's glad he understands that it's impossible to describe the complexity of a person with a simple label. Robin, however, just says that he assigned the wrong label and that he's a bad boy with a troubled past and an uncertain future as he dresses the part. Then he hands Beast Boy a letter and tells him to read it. In it, Robin wrote that he understands they were expelled for crane kicking everyone, but that they shouldn't have to write him a label about who they are. Beast Boy asks when the principal asked them to write a letter, but Robin tells him to keep reading or he would be totaled to which Cyborg asks him totally and Robin replying the same thing. Beast Boy reads that they can be assigned the simplest labels: a green guy who can turn to animals, a cyborg, a space princess, a half-demon, and a super cool bad boy and that should answer his question, ending his letter.

A video begins playing where an unknown singer sings "Crane Kick" while Robin, as a bad boy, chases Gizmo, Doctor Light, and Mumbo Jumbo until he defeats them with crane kicks as the episode ends.

Trivia

General

Continuity

  • The "Vote for Robin" campaign poster from "Money Grandma" is seen again.

References

  • The episode makes numerous references to the 1985 film The Breakfast Club and the 1984 film The Karate Kid.
    • From The Breakfast Club, it takes the idea of different student stereotypes, or "labels", which Robin takes literally; the Titans being repeatedly sent to detention (almost all of the film's action takes place during a detention class); and the title is a reference to the Simple Minds song "Don't You (Forget About Me)", which was included in the film's soundtrack. Also, each label is a parallel to one of the characters in the film: Beast Boy being the Nerd (Brian Johnson, played by Anthony Michael Hall), Cyborg being the Jock (Andy Clarke, played by Emilio Estevez), Starfire being the Homecoming Queen (Claire Standish, played by Molly Ringwald) and Raven being the Basket Case (Allison Reynolds, played by Ally Sheedy). The Bully label, which Robin takes up at the end of the episode, corresponds to the fifth main character, John Bender (Judd Nelson). The letter Robin makes Beast Boy read at the end is also very similar to the one the characters leave for Principal Vernon at the end of the film.
    • The Karate Kid is referenced mainly through Robin's habit of crane-kicking Beast Boy, in reference to the winning move used by Daniel Larusso in the karate tournament final against Johnny Lawrence. His talking about "falling in love with Elisabeth Shue" at the start of the episode is a reference to the fact that said actress played Ali Mills, Daniel's love interest in the film. Towards the end, as Robin goes berserk on the Titans, he cites other phrases referring to the film, like "Wax on!", "Paint the fence!" (both training instructions from Mr. Miyagi, Daniel's master) and "Sweep the leg!" (the illegal maneuver instructed by the master of the Cobra-kai dojo, John Kreese).
  • The Valedictorian list has Barbara Gordon as 3rd, and Jaime Reyes was also on the list.
  • While trying to be the "all-American boy", Robin dresses like Freddy from Scooby Doo.
