His grade is immature when it comes to boys and girls getting along with each other and when, Dave reads that Gandhi didn't talk for one day each week, he decides to try it out himself. But he only makes it until lunch before getting into an argument with Lynsey, the leader of the girls, and they end up making a bet. Two. The bet is two days of no talking, boys against girls. Whichever side talks less, wins. Not talking is harder than it seems, and has all sorts of consequences including a meeting with the principal, who has been trying to get them to stop talking for years.
