Ditch Day is the twenty fourth and last episode of 8 Simple Rules which was broadcast on April 15, 2005.
After C.J. discovers that Cate may be starting a clandestine relationship with Principal Gibb, he blabs it to Bridget. An angry Cate gets even by having Gibb put C.J. in charge of the detention of students on Ditch Day, and C.J. gets even by detaining Bridget. Meanwhile, because she is stuck in detention and can't complete the ditch day prank herself, Bridget convinces Kerry and Rory to steal the rival school's mascot. This was, sadly, the last episode of the series, thus ending the entire 3 year show.
