Mr. Poe brings kids to their new school, Prufrock Prep.
They had to live outside in the "orphan shack" because they were orphans.
They were forced to run laps for the new gym teacher late at night. They knew he was Count Olaf because he chose them to run.
Every night the orphans were supposed go listen to a 6 hour concert provided by their Vice Principal. They couldn't go because they had to run laps every night. Because they didn't go, they had to buy and watch the principal eat candy.
The orphans met the Quagmire Triplets at lunch. Like the Baudelaire, the triplets' parents and brother died in a house fire.
