| Take My Advice
Mr. Small feels that he hasn't inspired the children of Elmore Jounior High, so Gumball and Darwin try to lift his spirits.
The episode begins with Gumball and Darwin walking down the school hallway when suddenly they hear a strange moaning sound. Curious, the boys went to investigate, and it turns out that Mr. Small was moaning in the teacher's lounge, and the other school faculty members were stressed and depressed too. Mr. Small explains why he is so depressed because it feels he hasn't inspired the children of Elmore Junior High lately. The boys cheer him up and started to lift Mr. Small's spirit, making him smile.
In Mr. Small's office, he gives Gumball and Darwin some advice, and Darwin and Gumball start to take his advice, which begins to lead to mischief.
In Miss Simian's classroom, we see Gumball naked with a leprechaun's hat, and Darwin has pieces of cake for shoes and turns the sink on and leaving it on, and a goat with Abraham Lincoln's head appears and starts to wreck the classroom, and releasing the goat by accident and attacking and injuring other students.
Gumball and Darwin continue their mischief by pouring oil on the floor in the hallway, making Miss Simian slip and crash out the window, as well other students, with Idaho tearing Teri in half. Bobert hovers and takes Teri to the infirmary, but the oil catches fire and the windows of the school explode.
Mr. Small checks up on the boys and how his advice is working. He then gets another idea that laughter is the best medicine.
The next scene shows Gumball and Darwin dressed up as clowns. They try to cheer the injured students up at the infirmary, only to make things worse.
Mr. Small once again checks up on the boys how his advice is working. He then begins to play his guitar and sing a song about advice, with Gumball and Darwin following him. He doesn't notice all the mischief Gumball and Darwin, as the goat continues to rampage through the school, and knocking out more victims. After Mr. Small finishes his song, he give Gumball and Darwin one more tip for advice, not noticing the goat charging at him. Gumball stops the goat by hitting it woth a storage locker door. Gumball pulls the head off the goat revealing the real head of the goat before it faints, ending the episode.
