The guidance counsellors of Ambrose High have decided to speak to senior class couples about the power of communication.

Joanie and Chuck are at the top of Mrs. Slattimore’s list. She wants Joanie to see she wears bossy pants and Chuck already has a mom. When the couples don’t seem to be “getting it” Mrs. S. pulls out the big guns – truth puppets. That’s right, puppets who tell all.
