Dexter is first seen when he enters his Uncle, Zeus Carver's Repair Shop with his brother Raymond at 9:10 AM, to try and sell a boom box, which they claim was found in a dumpster. When Zeus questions them as to where they actually got it, he confesses that the boom box was actually stolen and a neighborhood thug named Bad Tony. Zeus tells them that they should stop skipping school and stop lying to protect others. At the end of the scene, they appear to be convinced and leave the shop. Later on they are concerned if they will be arrested for their activities when Connie Kowalski and Joe Lambert arrive at their school, Chester A. Arthur Elementary School.
