Abbott Elementary – Season 2 Episode 5 “Juice” Recap & Review
In the episode Abbott Elementary Season 2 Episode 5 of Season 2, Janine is adamant about introducing a new beverage in the cafeteria – one that has more juice, and less sugar. Barbara isn’t as enthusiastic about the idea and chooses to stay and not accept the new juice she’s been offered for her class. Her principle is “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
Janine as well as Gregory soon realize that she was correct. After lunch, when their classes are finished and they have fresh juice, all students need to go to the bathroom all at once. The bathrooms on the first floor aren’t able to manage the huge crowd of students, and they quickly become unusable.
Instead of using the bathrooms on the second floor, Janine and Gregory implore Barbara to use the bathroom in the kindergarten private. Barbara agrees to use it in the event of an emergency only.
If they make use of restrooms frequently, Barbara kicks them out of her classroom and instructs that they must go to the second floor.

Janine along with Gregory soon discovers that she was correct. After lunch, when their classes are finished and they have fresh juice, the entire class must use the restroom simultaneously. The bathrooms on the first floor cannot handle the huge influx of students. They soon fall inaccessible.
Instead of using bathrooms on the second floor, Janine and Gregory implore Barbara to make use of the school bathroom. Barbara agrees to use it in the event of an emergency only.
If they make use of the bathroom too frequently, Barbara kicks them out of her classroom and instructs them to move to the second floor.
She locates the baseball bat (from Melissa’s room obviously) and then returns upstairs to ensure that the bathroom they used to use is functioning properly. Their situation has become an emergency and the city must make repairs.
After explaining to Janine the best way to solve that issue, she informs her that she’s eager to help in the future. In the future, she’ll be setting office hours for when she can give suggestions to teachers.
Melissa may need some help herself since she’s dealing with a more difficult teacher’s assistant. Ashley Garcia is better at disrupting her class than teaching it.
Melissa receives Ava to help her Melissa asks Ava for help, but Ava is awed by Ashley’s quirky personality and asks her aide to assist her with personal projects.
Jacob is aware that Melissa isn’t talking to Ashley. Perhaps this is the reason why Melissa is helping Ava instead of Melissa. He suggests Melissa become acquainted with Ashley instead of giving her instructions.
Melissa implements this suggestion and provides Ashley with more affirmation, which significantly improves her performance at work. Perhaps they will be able to bring their classroom under control at last.
The Episode Review
Although the premise for this episode may be a little absurd, it’s easy to forgive due to the humorous images that show Janine and Gregory taking a step back toward Barbara with her bat. It’s also refreshing to see that the show isn’t losing sight of Barbara and Janine’s mentor-student bond and continues to develop in this direction. It appears that the two have plenty to learn from each other.
I’m eager for the next season. Ashley Garcia (aka Ava’s mini-me) will be a delightful character to add to the cast, particularly in comparison to Melissa’s frank and straightforward attitude.
