When Chase is tasked with rewriting the school play, he looks to Aesop and his fables for inspiration.

Using nutritional tidbits he picks up throughout the week, Chase ends up adapting The Tortoise and the Hare for a musical stage show that caters to everything Chase loves—track and field, food, storytelling, and besting his running rival, Gordon "Lightning" Smith.
