Principal Collins was the sneaky, corrupt Principal of Providence Hill High School and the secret lover of the lunch lady, Miss Heller. He was the main antagonist in the film Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd.


In 1986, Principal Collins and his girlfriend, Miss Heller figure out a way to swindle enough money from the school to get themselves a condo in Waikiki, Hawaii. This had been going on for a very long time. In order to achieve that dream for good. They learn that the Richard Moffit special needs grant is giving $100,000 to every school in Rhode Island with a special needs class. To get the money, they set up their own special needs class and he sees Harry Dunne and Lloyd Christmas hoisted up on a flagpole and notices that they are the main two candidates for his "class." He and Miss Heller assign Harry and Lloyd with the task of finding more special needs students, which they do when the "special needs class" takes a group photo with him. Jessica Matthews is suspicious of the fact that the class is a fake and that the Principal is stealing money that is supposed to go to the school.

Many weeks later, he notices his chest is missing. The chest contained every piece of evidence of every scam he pulled to steal the money. After Miss Heller confirmed that Jessica stole the chest (It was actually Lloyd who stole it) he interrogates Jessica and pulls a prank call on her parents saying that she will be studying for an upcoming test. Unbeknownst to Principal Collins, Harry and Lloyd follow them to his house because they think Principal Collins and Jessica are dating. While his back was turned, Jessica tells Harry and Lloyd to get the chest and uncover his corruption. Harry and Lloyd go through the chest and completely misunderstand the fact that Principal Collins is corrupt. Instead, they redesign the George Washington parade float to make it look like him as a pirate. The special needs students discover this the next day and they (along with Harry and Lloyd) uncover the truth about Principal Collins and Miss Heller, sending them to jail for 20 years.


It is likely that Principal Collins was released from prison eight years before the events of Dumb and Dumber To as he mentions the fact that his corruption would put him away for 20 years. In conjunction he was released in 2006.
