A book with pre- printed Wookiee paper


With Dwight suspended, The Fortune Wookiee (wielded by Sara ) gives advice to the kids, such as Lance Alexander, and not be ashamed of his ballet classes, or asking Tommy to apologize to Harvey for blowing his nose on Harvey 's origami snowtrooper. Harvey does not believe in Chewie's Force powers and speculates that when he gives his ninth piece of advice, he (Harvey) can prove that the Fortune Wookiee is fake, as a cootie-catcher can only give eight fortunes. This plan was sucessful, and Harvey tried to take the Fortune Wookiee to further prove it fake. However, Sara and Rhondella were still holding on and it ripped. Tommy knew that something was up and interviewed Sara about it, when the truth of the Fortune Wookiee was revealed: Sara folded it AND Han Foldo , not Dwight! The true purpose of the Fortune Wookiee was to gently tell Kellen that Rhondella doesn't love him. Tommy kept the reason a secret but said in the case file that it was fake. Meanwhile, the McQuarrie kids keep seeing Dwight around, being really...normal! Ever since he went to Tippett Academy with Caroline, he has been becoming more of a  normal person by the minute! In the end, though, Tommy gives Dwight The Dwight File, which is filled with doodles of everyone at McQuarrie , begging Dwight to come back. (also in the file is a note from Rabbski stating that Dwight can come back next semester.) Tommy also removes Origami Yoda from a picture frame that he was in, and uses it to convince Dwight, combined with giving him the mini-case file.

Finally, Dwight takes Origami Yoda again, and gives Tommy a hint of what is to come:

A War with Principal Rabbski!

Afterward, Tommy goes to Sarah's house. They talk about Dwight and are really happy that he and Origami Yoda will be returning next semester. Tommy mentions the "War" advice and Sarah shows him a letter that Rabbski sent the parents that morning. The letter reveals that all of the fun classes will be replaced by extra study time. Sara makes the Fortune Wookiee say, "Wuuuuuuggggg!" and Tommy operates Han Foldo to say, "I've got a bad feeling about this..."
