The nicest and naughtiest kids in class form a special bond during their timeouts by hanging out at a nearby game center. In order to spend more time there, the nice kid purposely gets into trouble, though their friends eventually distance themselves from them. Seeing how sad their new friend is, the naughty kid allows them to share their secret with the rest of the class.


The episode opens with Chef overseeing the kids finger painting for art class. When he checks up on Owen, the boy is covered with yellow paint, trying to paint a donkey but makes a smiley face instead. After Owen high fives Chef, covering him with paint as well, Chef realizes that the "paint" smells like lemon. It turns out Owen had taken a lemon pie from the fridge and the "paint" is actually from the pie. Angered that Owen had eaten his lunch, Chef gives Owen a time-out, a first for him. A sadden Owen walks to the time-out corner and is required to stay there for twenty minutes with the only other kid there, Duncan. The two boys chat for a bit where Owen tells Duncan that unlike him, Owen never gets in trouble before as Chef always tells him "Just glad you're okay". Owen continues to wait for his twenty minutes to expired and grows rather impatient after ten seconds. Suddenly, Owen notices Duncan has disappeared and in his place is a teddy bear with a paper plate, with a face drawn on it, tape to its face. The real Duncan inside a hole hidden underneath the rug. Afraid that Owen might tell Chef that he is missing, Duncan invites Owen to join him in the tunnel that he dug and replaces him with a basketball on a pillow to prevent Chef from noticing the both of them are missing.

Duncan explains that he the tunnel was supposed to lead to a field outside the daycare but instead leads to somewhere better, Chunk E. Cheddar, an arcade that was closed down a month ago.  Since discovering the place, Duncan purposely gets himself sent to time out in order to hang out there.

After playing for the 20 minutes that was Owen's timeout, Owen and Duncan return to the daycare, where Owen promises not to tell anyone else about Chunk E. Cheddar's, and tries to get himself another timeout so he can go back.

Owen's first attempt at getting himself in a timeout involves him dancing "badly" outside in front of Chef, but Chef likes the dance and gets the other kids to join in, calling the dance the "Owen". Owen's second attempt is painting a donkey "badly", but this time he successfully paints a donkey, which Chef likes and decides to hang it on his office window. Owen's third attempt involves him shaking the bookcase so that it's raining books. At first, it works, and Chef is about to give Owen another timeout, but then a book falls on Owen, and after removing it, Chef retracts hist statement, and instead says "Just glad you're ok", once again upsetting Owen.



The credits go through a kaleidoscope effect, shuffling through shifting images of the kids spinning around and shrinking, until finally coming to an end as Chef's face pops out, using the same effect until it shrinks into nothing.
