The main gag’s obvious enough; but what is that written on the blackboard?

    You see what’s on the blackboard in its
    entirety. Paraphrased: “Jane has seen
    you wallet; run for it, Dick!”

    Punctuation certainly would help, yes. A period after “wallet”, for example. There is punctuation in the Dick and Jane books. I remember being fascinated by all the commas. “Run, Spot, run!”

    C:\>
    C:\>SPOT.RUN
    Bad command or file name.
    RUN SPOT.RUN

    Still peculiar, if there is meant to be a connection between the girl’s remark and what is written on the board. “Wallet” is probably a higher vocabulary level word than this Dick & Jane lesson covers, so how would the Cliff’s Notes get away with introducing it? And if two disconnected jokes, it’s just too diffuse then

    Women are gold-diggers who are only after a guy’s cash, amiright fellas?

    Sometimes there’s stuff on the board that doesn’t actually relate to the lesson currently being taught, it’s leftover from something else. The Men’s Divorce Support Group met in this room last night.

    I read the blackboard a little differently. I read it as “See Jane. See Wallet. Run, Dick, Run.”

    Subtly different than “‘See Jane see wallet. Run, Dick Run.”‘ That’s not quite in keeping with the drumbeat of the original book either imho.

    (And now I’m trying to work the “Ain’t nobody got time for that” meme into this, just for my own edification.)

    It is a Gasoline Alley reference to Walt Wallet.

    So the “Hey Geezer!” tag needs to be added.

    Interesting, the version I read said “see Gucci, see Jane run” implying Jane was running to a sale, I suppose.
