Driven to Extremes is the twentieth episode (40th overall) of the second season which was broadcast on June 29, 2003.


A extremely strict substitute teacher comes to Ms. Zorski's class, making everyone's lives miserable. Miranda arranges for the students to T.P. the substitute's house and ring the door bell, pelting her with eggs when she comes to answer. Ginger thinks it's going a little too far and backs out. But when she becomes concerned for the substitute’s safety, she decides to put an end to her classmates' prank. On Monday, Ginger makes her speech to the sub about her strictness, and unfortunately she gets detention as a result. Meanwhile, Carl offers to teach Mr. Licorice how to ride a motorcycle for a pet talent show.

Mrs. Grimley: (reading Courtney's note) "Dear Miranda, your tag is sticking out of your shirt, which by the way, is totally to die for. Your welcome. Courtney." Miranda: Whew. Thanks, girlfriend.  

Courtney: (reacting to Mrs. Grimley) I don't even know 1600 words.

Courtney: Well, change the toilet paper to crank paper and we'd practically be decorating it for the prom. They don't throw you out of school for that.

Ginger: I suppose I'll be there, too. Armed and not so dangerous.

Courtney: If I found out my best friend let me walk around with a stray tag, I'd never speak to her again.
