Mandark Astronomanov, a new student at Dexter’s school, seems to be superior to Dexter academically. Mandark forces Dexter to shut down his lab so that Mandark’s lab can gain more power. However, with the help of Dee Dee, Dexter manages to destroy Mandark’s lab.
While out for dinner at a pizza restaurant, Dexter tries to slow down the “Whack the Weasel” machine to win a stuffed Monkey doll before Dee Dee does. Security captures him for tampering with the machine, and he falls into the hands of a mad scientist.
Dexter has a crush on his teenage babysitter Lisa (Kath Soucie). When he finds out that she has a boyfriend, he sabotages their relationship and accelerates his age by ten years in an attempt to win her heart.
Suspicious that Dee Dee has not entered his lab even once on a particular day, Dexter shrinks himself and enters her room to spy on her. He soon becomes an unwilling character in Dee Dee’s doll story, but he believes the story to be real.
Dexter catches the chicken pox, and Dee Dee tells him a ridiculous tale that if he keeps scratching them, he will turn into an evil chicken. Dexter completely restrains himself so that he will not have to scratch it; unfortunately, he is unable to resist and his nonstop scratching eventually does just that.
Not interested in hearing Dee Dee’s long-winded story, Dexter gives her a silencing formula to keep her quiet, but it instead turns her into a giant monster still bent on telling her story. When he realizes that nothing can make her quiet, he becomes a giant monster himself.
Dexter’s new device allows him to study for the next day’s French test while sleeping. It malfunctions, causing a single phrase (omelette du fromage) to repeat throughout the night, causing Dexter to wake up the next morning speaking nothing else except omelette du fromage.
