Because of the fact that he is male and Asian (his surname suggests that he's of Japanese descent), Scott is assumed to be intelligent and Maureen is accused of cheating off of him. In reality, however he cheated off of Maureen. He was willing to let the lie be believed, until Sue and Frank's volatile fight causes him to breakdown and tell the truth. In tears, he confesses that he hates school and is not good at it, and only wants to do Motocross. This directly mirrors what Kevin said earlier in the season, about hating school and only wanting to do music.
