Plot Summary

Andy puffs with pride when he learns Opie has chosen him as the subject of a school essay on his "Most Unforgettable Character." Arnold selects his own father as the subject of his paper. Both boys recieve the same grade--"F." Andy is dismayed, but not nearly as much as when he learns that Opie has written a second paper about Arnold's father that earned an "A." When Andy discovers that Arnold's second paper, which also garnered an "A", was about Andy, he realizes that Opie was to close to him to write anything of intrest.
