When the students from Adam's class are impressed with Mr. Kidd, Adam is upset. Echo has fallen in love with Mr. Kidd, and then this upsets Adam more. Derby is even impressed. Adam tries to revive Echo's memories, and then it proves not to work. When Mr. Kidd and Echo are kissing, Adam is even more upset, and he then finds out Echo does not remember him at all.

Later on, Mr. Kidd reveals that he used it to steal Adam's identity. Later on, Derby is shown not to remember Adam at all. Principal Tater does not remember him either. Adam's mom does not remember Adam either. Adam is then kicked out of his own home.

Adam finds the memory machine and then Derby kicks him out. Derby reveals he dislikes Mr. Kidd for every time he's been a jerk. Adam pretends to be a hat salesmanm and then he gives everyone a hat. After that, he reveals their memories are stored in the hats, but Mr. Kidd foils the plan. Echo and Adam kiss, and Echo remembers everything. Echo reveals what Mr. Kidd had done. Adam and Echo give everyone their memory back, much to Mr. Kidd's dismay. And Adam and Echo are a couple again.

Mr. Kidd is then fired from Finnegan High, and Rachel gets Mr. Kidd grounded.

  • This episode hints a possibility of Principal Tater being Adam and Ivy's father.
  • Though people kept talking about a Mr. Young Special, they would've remembered Adam this way, but it's possible that they were referring to a different character.
  • This episode apparently takes place on Mrs. Byrne's birthday, as Principal Tater crashes into a cake for her while she wears a party hat.

    • The last episode to feature Rachel, as she never appeared in Mr. Finale.
    • The last episode to feature the Young house.
    • The last appearance of Mr. Kidd, as well as the only appearances of Mr. French and Mr. Morris.
    • The last episode where Echo kisses Mr Young on the lips.
    • The final episode of the Mr. First Impression arc.
  • It is unknown if Dang got his memory erased by Mr. Kidd, as he was the only major character absent in this episode.
  • If one were to count Rachel's stock footage cameo in Mr. Interview as an appearance, then this would be her final appearance physically.
