After playing a bit too aggressively with his Lil Buddy doll, Clarence gets a timeout and his worst nightmare comes true – he misses recess and became a school's bully.
Clarence wants his classmates to play with his Lil' Buddy, but when he makes Reed fall, Miss Shoop gives him a 10-minute punishment (5 for what he did and 5 more for talking). Clarence begins to imagine all kinds of things until Miss Shoop tells him that his time ended 5 minutes ago, Clarence gets up to go play at recess, but it ends and the children go back to class, which makes it sad to Clarence. In chemistry class, Clarence does not want to play with the mass. At night, in his house, Clarence accidentally breaks the arm of his Lil' Buddy when throwing it, then he goes to the forest to bury it. Below is a montage of Clarence becoming emo. Belson convinces him that he became great and they should team up, but Clarence ignores him. The next day, Clarence appears disguised as Lil' Buddy and tries to touch Jeff with Lil' Buddy's broken arm, Miss Shoop was about to blow the whistle, but it stops when Belson drops his pants to Clarence, then he gives a big blow on his nose, he also hits Dustin for approving the violence. Later, Clarence has a special punishment in the director's room, there's Miss Baker, she gives Clarence his Lil' Buddy, which makes him happy back, she also mentions that he can have his own break just with Lil' Buddy. Clarence enjoys his own recess, Sumo mentions that they recovered the old Clarence, ending the episode.
From both sides, the episode received mixed reviews, on the positive side: many phrased the outcome of Clarence changing from his former to latter (As Emo Style to Bad Boy Style), as well as they as the part where he punched Belson as an assumption for comeuppance (even though it is not considered the reason why for this), and described as a "Wham" episode on how kids feel in real life would have to go through similar to what Clarence did, however on the negative side: Some fans described negatively on the episode for being too violent, scary, dark and depressing, described that it was one of the episodes that went too far, as Clarence for going far out of character, as it was deemed a "shock value".
