Thuggish camper Thud Mackie is a most intimidating fellow. When Michael accidentally destroys Thud's brownie supply, Thud allows five days for its restoration - or else. Interrupting Michael's video plea to home, Bobby points out that grandparents are a softer touch. Still, the brownie plan fails, so Bobby personally directs Michael's next homeward plea to get him removed from camp before Thud's deadline and beating, depicting the camp in an atrocious state. Meanwhile, self-proclaimed "plant expert" Ug misidentifies poison sumac to his rash-covered regret. Written by statmanjeff
