# Playing by the rules
# Is highly overrated
# Unstoppable, unstoppable, yeah!
# They can't hold us back
# We'll make the most of every second
# Unstoppable, unstoppable, yeah!
# After all is said and done
# Shout, "One for all and all for fun!"
# Nothing's going to bring us down today
# Open up your eyes
# The world outside is waiting. #
All right, class, you have five minutes to finish today's experiment.
With my personal junior genius lab kit,
that should present no problem, Mrs Creature.
Er, Mrs Creature? My beaker's broken. Look!
Then pair up with Walter, Dennis. BOTH: WHAT?!
Oh, surely you too can work together for five minutes.
We've had to evacuate the entire school because of the smell.
Do you have anything to say for yourselves for ruining
-Mrs Creature's experiment?
It was all his fault.
I told you not to touch the beaker when the liquid oozes.
You have zero understanding of slime production.
What's there to understand? Puerile pranks, tawdry tricks.
-All child's play.
Menacing takes skill and precision timing.
You couldn't menace a dead fish!
I could do that in my sleep.
You wouldn't last one afternoon completing my to-do list.
What? Measuring the straightness of my tie with a ruler.
Yeah, really hard, Walter. I do more than that. I...
Boys, boys, boys.
It seems we have here a classic lack of mutual understanding,
but I have the perfect solution.
You will each spend this afternoon living each other's lives.
I've spoken to your parents and it is agreed. This afternoon, you will live
according to the habits and rules of the other's household.
I'll explain later, Gnasher. It's...complicated.
Here is Walter's jam-packed schedule for this afternoon.
Jingle Composer Club.
Toothpick modellers' symposium with the Colonel.
Competitive bird-watching? Swimming pool mathletics? Pet grooming?!
CAT MEWLS, GNASHER CHUCKLES
Where do you keep your garden shears?
-Dennis's schedule? For what?
-His after-school activities!
He doesn't exactly have a schedule. He...lives in the moment.
-This will be a breeze!
Just as I thought.
I do hope Dennis is coping.
HE MAKES A RACKET
-That's not...quite how... Walter does it.
-No, it's not!
Din-Makers, prepare for practice! I hope you've studied your chords.
Stand straight, shoulders back, no slouching!
Now, after me. I'll count us in.
A-one, two, three, four.
Um, usually Dennis just says something like, "Rock!"
-Don't mind if I do!
THEY MAKE A RACKET
Competitive bird-watching? Ohhh! Let's liven this up, Gnasher.
This isn't the sort of thing we do with Dennis, Walter.
-But that is.
So, THIS is a toothpick modellers' symposium.
Playing with Bea can't be THAT hard.
Ooh... Ooh, no...
Ohh... I don't know how much more of this I can take!
What's swimming pool mathletics anyway? Huh?
3 times 7 is 21, 4 times 7 is 28,
5 times 7... Dennis?
Oh, I know this one! Cannonball!
So far you're not doing very well at being Walter, Dennis.
I knew you'd find my life too hard. Meanwhile, I'm blitzing yours!
Tree house tidied, a study regime for Bea.
I've even introduced the Din-Makers
to the principles of classical harmony.
That's not being a menace, Walter!
That sounds like things you'd do. Epic fail.
Boys, you have one more chance to live each other's life
before the day is done or...
..I'll pair you up in every class until the term ends.
-17 times 32 is 544,
18 times 32 is 576.
-19 times 32 is...
OK, time for plan D, G and W.
We need to help each other if we're going to get through the experiment.
Very well. Listen carefully.
After swimming pool mathletics, it's bath time.
Make sure you use plenty of soap. Then it's afternoon tea.
This is very important - you must use the scone fork.
It's second from the right. Do NOT use the Battenberg fork!
OK, but, Walter, you've got to think like a menace.
Remember - fun is always just around the corner.
Come, Claudius. We have menacing to attend to.
And it's bath time for you and me.
-# Da, da-da-da, da-da... #
Lots of soap, eh? Low setting, I think.
Right. Let's get you kitted out with some menacing equipment.
Right, Gnasher. All I have to do is get through the scone test
and life goes back to normal!
Mm-hm, he certainly looks and smells the part.
'Not the Battenberg fork! Use the second one!
'The second one!'
Just goes to show you CAN complete a successful experiment
-without any mischief. A+ for you, Dennis.
But Walter still has to pass HIS test.
Oh, Walter excels at everything he does!
He'll be just fine, I assure you.
I'm not so sure about that. Come on, Gnasher!
Oooh-oooh! Where are the instructions on this device?!
Too late anyway. Postman's way out of range now.
-POSTMAN: Strangely quiet today.
I told you not to waste time arranging the pranks
according to the Dewey decimal system.
But they needed sorting out!
No! I... Oh... I couldn't possibly!
-Ha-ha! But...I could!
Hmm... Do it, Claudius!
What are you doing... Atchoo! ..doing, Walter?!
Being Dennis, sir.
Hmm...yes, I...I suppose you are. Well, well done. Very good. Atchoo!
So, what have you.... Atchoo! ..learned today, Walter?
Well, that...having no rules can be somewhat liberating.
-And you, Dennis?
er...that everyone needs a bath sometimes?
-Mm, yes, I suppose they do.
you have successfully completed today's experiment.
Er, would you care to join us for afternoon tea, headmaster?
Thank you, Walter. I never say no to a scone!
Whoa! Who knew bath time could be so much fun?! Follow me!
Ha-ha! Genius wears a striped jumper!

After Dennis and Walter mess up a science experiment, De Testa decides the boys would benefit from a bit of mutual understanding and issues the rivals with a formidable challenge, to each live the other's life for a day. If they fail the experiment, they will be teamed up for everything forever! Dennis must teach Walter how to menace - and learn how to behave himself - in record time, in order to avoid a fate worse than detention.
