The duo is sitting on the football field during gym class then a javelin hits Beavis' hand. Then in the locker room Beavis is covered in blood and Coach Buzzcut tells them to take a shower but they don't want to so they decide to take a shower in their underwear then the fire alarm rings. And Coach Buzzcut tells them to get out so everybody saw Beavis and Butt-Head in their underwear and it turns out that Coach Buzzcut and Principal McVicker had made Beavis and Butt-Head strip and set the fire alarm so Beavis and Butt-Head would be completely humiliated in public.
