Ed is sleeping on the couch of his office. Warren walks in and asks what happened, and Ed tells him that it was "too much pie." Warren walks in and starts preaching the gospel of Thoreau. Warren tells Ed that every man has to make decisions about life. Ed thinks his decision will be not to eat any more pie. Warren thinks that he's going to go live in the woods for a weekend, at "the top of Mount Precipice." Ed pulls out his journal and tells Warren that in high school, he used to get up before dawn and run to the top of Mt. Precipice with a full backpack on, and he could do it in -- Ed refers to the journal here -- "one hour, eight minutes, forty-two seconds." Warren annoyingly keeps quoting Thoreau. Ed reminisces about how he used to watch the sunrise and try to make decisions on how to live his life, and now he wonders why he bothers. Warren says that Ed is bringing him down. Ed asks the reason for Warren's visit. Warren wants to know whether he can get in trouble for spending the night in a state park. Ed tells him that it's against the law, but that if he gets caught, it's only "a slap on the wrist." Shirley comes in to tell Ed that "there is a gentleman bowling naked on lane six."
Ed walks through the cheering crowd that has gathered to find -- wait for it -- Pollak bowling naked. The ball return (hee!) conveniently covers up his naughty bits. Pollak rolls one down the lane while the crowd cheers, and Ed grins.
Ed confers with a now-berobed Pollak in his office. Ed tells him that he "can't bowl naked." Pollak wants to know why not, but before Ed can answer, Pollak presents him with a booklet he wrote himself called Do Everything!. Ed points out that if Pollak gets arrested again for disturbing the peace, he'll go to jail. Pollak thinks that the peace needs to be disturbed, and says that he wants to make waves. Pollak chews the scenery some more, and throws off his robe. Ed winces.
In the school hallway, Warren approaches Jessica, who says she thinks that Walden is pretty cool. Warren tells Jessica that he's going to "take to the woods," and he wants her to come with him. Jessica doesn't get it. Dude, look at her. This girl clearly spends many, many hours on her eye makeup alone. She is so not going to the woods. Warren lays out his plan for her, but Jessica passes, because she doesn't think her parents would go for it. Warren suggests she tell them that it's for school, and she walks off, saying she'll think about it. Donna (the plain girl in the group) walks up behind Warren and asks him if "Jessica Martell is what Henry David had in mind when he said, 'Simplify'?" Warren watches Donna walk off. I think he just had an impure thought, but I can't be sure.
