Max then leads the other students to see ugly photoshopped photos of Principal Bradford posted on the lockers by a prankster calling himself, The Rebel Raptor. Max says he's proud of the whoever is posting those. Principal Bradford catches Max standing there and accuses him of being the prankster but Max, with Phoebe's alibi proves that he isn't the Rebel Raptor. Phoebe flashes back to last night that Max was at home when she was calling the High School Janitors of America, Gum Division. Max had passed behind her saying, "Max in the house." Bradford vows to find whoever the Rebel Raptor is and give them the worst punishment possible: work at at the lunch line. Phoebe tells Max that she will do a paper on the Rebel Raptor, if only she knew who the Rebel Raptor is.

Max and Phoebe on Rebel Raptor

At home, Phoebe tells Max of her failed progress to find the Rebel Raptor. She summoned all her suspects but only Gideon showed up. Apparently Gideon thinks this was a date. Phoebe kicks Gideon out. While still talking to Max, Phoebe gets an email from the Rebel Raptor offering to give Phoebe an exclusive interview as long as she keeps his identity a secret.

Phoebe and Max Rebel Raptor Interview

Later that night, Phoebe sneaks out alone in the dark to call the Rebel Raptor, just as they had planned. The Rebel Raptor answers the video call. He is masked and has his voice disguised. Phoebe then hears a woman speaking next to the Rebel Raptor asking why it's so dark in there. The woman turns on the light and unmasks the Rebel Raptor. The woman is Barb. And Max is the Rebel Raptor. Max blames Barb for ruining his exclusive interview. Barb says hi to Phoebe. Phoebe then goes to Max's Lair to ask how Max is the Rebel Raptor when she knows for sure she saw him last night. Max reveals that Phoebe didn't really see him - it was a Max-shaped cardboard that Max and Dr. Colosso made to trick Phoebe. Phoebe convinces Max to still do the Rebel Raptor interview with her and she will keep his secret.

Phoebe and Principal Bradford

The next day at school, Phoebe publishes her article, making it to the cover story of the school newspaper. Winnie Lee even invites Phoebe to sit with them at the lunch table. The day couldn't get any better. But it could get worse - Principal Bradford demands that Phoebe should tell him who the Rebel Raptor is. Phoebe refuses to betray her source's trust. At first, Max thinks Phoebe ratted him out but realizes that Phoebe kept her promise. Principal Bradford threatens to give Phoebe lunch - lady duty as a punishment. Phoebe thinks he's bluffing he's not.

Phoebe and the Sisterhood of the Mole

During lunch, Phoebe puts on the lunch lady outfit and serves students in the lunch line. Phoebe is disgusted. She is disappointed that she can't eat lunch with Winnie Lee. Gideon is even disgusted that he once liked Phoebe. Max comes to the lunch line and thanks Phoebe for keeping her promise. Principal Bradford comes to the line and asks Phoebe again to reveal the Rebel Raptor. Phoebe refuses. So, Bradford asks Phoebe to make him 500 hot dogs. Why would Bradford need 500 hot dogs? The Thunder Twins agree that Bradford is up to something. And if they can figure out what he's hiding they can use that against him for Phoebe to get out of the lunch duty. However, Max says he won't help Phoebe with it because then it would make her self-sacrifice meaningless. Good luck!

After delivering the hot dogs to the discreet location according to Bradford, Phoebe hides behind to see who comes to pick up the hot dogs. Meanwhile, Max sneaks back in as well. Phoebe is glad that Max came back to help her. Max denies it and claims that he only came because the Rebel Raptor wants to get more dirt on Bradford. A guy comes and picks up the hot dogs.

Phoebe and Max Sneak In

The Thunder Twins follow the guy secretly, which leads them to an underground wrestling match within the school. They discover that Principal Bradford is one of the wrestlers. Phoebe wants to get a photo of Bradford and blackmail him with it to get her off the lunch lady duty. But, Bradford has a mask and Phoebe's telekinesis doesn't help much. If only they could get someone to unmask Bradford. Max offers to do it admitting that he really came to help Phoebe for keeping his secret safe. He asks Phoebe to slap him for helping her. She gladly does it.

Principal Bradford Busted by Max and Phoebe

Max puts on the wrestling uniform and gets into the ring to take down Bradford. The moderator and Principal Bradford use school puns and jokes for trashtalk. During the fight, Phoebe uses telekinesis to help Max cheat and defeat Bradford. Max is almost winning but then someone blocks Phoebe from direct view, meaning that she can't use telekinesis to help Max. Bradford pins Max down and just before winning the match, Phoebe jumps into the ring. If there were rules this would be illegal. It's the Thunder Twins vs Principal Bradford. At first, Max and Phoebe are doing well but Bradford makes a huge comeback making the twins fall. Bradford then leaves the ring to look for a "board" of education to beat up the opponents. While jumping back into the ring, Phoebe and Max use their telekinesis to make him trip. Bradford loses.

Max and Phoebe after Wrestling

Max then unmasks himself, revealing that he is the Rebel Raptor. Phoebe then unmasks herself as Lunchador.
