A Tangled Web, is the eigth episode of season 2, and the twenty-first episode overall.
The day before Max's "One Kid Can Make a Difference" presentation arrives and Taylor and his father both taunt Max and D.J. that they will win the green ribbon as Taylor will be presenting a solar-powered ATV, causing D.J. to become competitive to beat Taylor and his father in the presentation. Max's project is overtaken with his speech being re-written and having a more over the top presentation complete with pyrotechnics. When Max becomes scared after Spot crawls onto his head, D.J. fills in for Max with his big finisher after he runs inside. In the end, both Max and Taylor lose first place due to the parental interference to their classmate Sarah, who created a windmill out of old Barbies. Later that night, D.J. apologizes to Max for overtaking his project and causing him to lose.
