Unable to reverse their situation, Hammond begs Roy to play along and not to tell Miss Jervis. For that day, Hammond experiences life through Roy's eyes, the awkwardness, Deco's bullying and the temptations of cartoon abilities, which he succumbs to, trouncing Deco on the basketball court using his cartoon stretchy arms. He even gets a big hug from Tara, much to Roy's frustration.

When Roy, trapped in Mr Hammond's body, accidentally destroys Mr Hammond's speech, Roy is forced to ad-lib the presentation, and when he nearly confesses to their swap, Hammond charges the stage to save Roy. Will they somehow get their own bodies back and finally learn to appreciate each other and their differences?
