(The scene starts with Shanks stating he had no idea their department was still around) Dean Shanks asked them how long the department was active without him knowing it. (Shanks defends the institution's 12 year reputation) Shanks cautions them not to judge him because he only went to prison because he took his junk out at the mall. Erin stated she saw a poster for a school dance at Shanks' house. (Abby gets into him about spelling "Science") Shanks admits the school wasn't perfect. Holtzmann points out the school mascot is a thong. Shanks didn't understand why that was bad. Abby pointed out he raised money for last year's graduation ceremony through Kickstarter. Holtzmann added it was to pay for an appearance by Hoobastank. Shanks insisted he was doing his best to try to make the institute better and he didn't want them to make it look bad. (Abby claims they're doing important work) Shanks asked what important work they were doing and called it ghostery. Erin added they just needed equipment and space. (Shanks tells them to suck it) Shanks spoke in outdated slang and added "izzo" then later quoted The Rock's "candy ass" line as he told them to leave. Abby vowed he would regret it. Holtzmann told him she didn't think he had it in him. After they left, Shanks got on the phone and asked for Cinnamon to be sent in.
