  • Episode Description
  • Alecia and Sierra get a vague school assignment to illustrate an aspect of contemporary culture, so they decide to team up and produce a music video. Castelli and Niki try to raise funds so that the basketball team (and Niki) can go to Miami for the WNBA All-Star Game. Both projects run into problems. Sierra and Alecia are both mainly interested in their specialties, directing and performing, respectively, and they both are dissatisfied with the others' work. Meanwhile Niki and Cris aren't proving to be very good solicitors, so Niki comes up with the idea of giving $10 makeovers at school and at the Loft. But that plan fizzles out, too. The fighting between Sierra and Alecia gets so bad that the other two girls hold a "friendship intervention--mandatory therapy." Alecia and Sierra snipe at each other at first but then realize that they both were insecure about their own talents. The girls come up with a solution to both sets of problems when they add Castelli's hunky brother Steven to the video to attract female attention, then show it at a benefit screening.moreless

    Allusions (5)

    • Cris: So Alecia was being a total Christina Aguilera to Sierra. Christina Aguliera was probably second only to Britney Spears in popularity among the female "teen idol" singers that emerged in the last half of the 1990's. We didn't know that she had a reputation for being difficult, as is suggested here.

    • Alecia: I was just trying to do my song and she was trying to turn the video into The Matrix. The Matrix is a 1999 movie starring Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburn which is noted for its spectacular special effects.

    • Barista: What happened? N*Sync break up? N*Sync, in case anyone has been living under a rock, is a teenage vocal group formed in 1966 which gained tremendous popularity, replacing the Back Street Boys as the world's #1 "boy band."

    • Cris: You know the Athletic Club trip to the WNBA All-Star Game The Women's National Basketball Association is one of two professional women's basketball leagues league that began play in 1997. (The other, the American Basketball League, folded in 1998.) Each year they play an All-Star game.

    • Sierra: She listens to Lil' Bow Wow and chews gum and stuff. Lil' Bow Wow is the professional name of Gregory (Shad) Moss, who was born in 1987 and gained fame as a rapper before he was a teenager.
