The scene finally changes to the Student Council Members in their room. In which Tsubaki barges in and files that the Sket Club does mischievous deeds again. Though, some of the student council members themselves make some outrageous decisions also like expanding the girls bathroom, destroying a doorknob in which Tsubaki is shocked. He asks the president and the others that they must set an example to everyone and try their best to fix everything. Then, the topic changes to the Principal's birthday, and the president pretends that he didn't remember a thing, but Tsubaki still makes him remember and he has no choice but to stand up and start the surprise idea for the principal
Though, as they fix the room with decorations, the president looks at the statue and says that it doesn't look like the principal at all. He draws two circles at the principal's face statue, and every Student Council member freaks out. The president states that he 'forgot' that it was actually permanent marker, so everyone started trying ways to remove it. They tried cutting of the statue, they tried using water based markers, and they even tried Tsubaki's ideal of using potato chips which failed. Tsubaki then cries and says that he would take responsibility of what happened with the statue and will quit his position because he was blamed by his council members that it was his fault. But everyone laughs and says it was a joke and that Tsubaki was so easy to tease.
As the principal approaches the room, Tsubaki blocks the principal and fails, one of the council members then poke both of the principal eyes, and finally, the president throws the birthday cake they had at the principal, knocking him out. Everything is resolved when Tsubaki looks at the cake and sees that it has the tracing of the principal's face. The journalist promises not to tell anyone and when the school photo was published, the principal wondered if the statue always had his face shown smiling.
