  • Episode Description
  • The friends are playing a game of "truth or dare," but Alecia thinks the dares are too tame. She challenges Niki to call up the new boy Ryan. Niki gets his answering machine and leaves a message for him to call her. Then Alecia dares (Cris) Castelli to take them all for a ride in her father's beloved vintage '65 Mustang. The girls go to the Castelli's pizza restaurant where they distract Cris' dad while she gets the keys to the car. While out riding in the car, Cris had difficulty shifting and when Alecia tries to help, they strip the car's clutch plate. Cris' brother Steve comes out to help but the car will need a specially-ordered part. Castelli has the car towed back home and plans not to tell her father, but to get the part and have it replaced without his knowing. Meanwhile, she and Alecia have a falling out when Cris blames Alecia's dare for causing the whole problem in the first place. Niki is getting frantic because Ryan hasn't returned her call. Back at the restaurant Dad says he and Steve are going to a Mustang rally in a couple of days. Cris tries to make up reasons why her father shouldn't to go to the rally, saying that it is "unsafe" somehow, but he's unconvinced. Later when the girls are together, Castelli decides she must tell her father what she has done. Sierra then confesses to Niki that Ryan has failed to call back because she told him Niki's call was a joke. Sierra admits that she wanted to go out with the guy herself. Rather than being mad at Sierra, Niki is relieved that she hasn't "lost it." While Cris is telling her father the truth about the car, Alecia comes in and takes the blame also. Mr. Castelli had figured out what happened, but he let the girls squirm a little because they didn't tell the truth. Castelli and Alecia receive punishments for their actions, but their friendship is back on track.moreless

    • Sierra: Hello, it takes three to do the Charlie's Angels pose. Charlie's Angels was a TV show (1976-81) about three beautiful female private detectives working for an unseen boss. It originally starred Kate Jackson, Farrah Fawcett and Jaclyn Smith. The trio posed for a publicity shot that was much imitated, especially by young girls playing "Charlie's Angels" the way boys might play cops & robbers. The TV series was the basis for a feature film released in 2000 starring Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu in the title roles.

    • Steven: You're going to the Mustang rally? The Mustang is one of the most popular American automobile models of all time. It was the brainchild and greatest success of Ford Motor Company president Lee Iacocca. The Mustang was introduced in 1964 and is still in production today.

    • Steven: when I let you think you were the one who broke your Easy-Bake Oven. The Easy-Bake Oven was a popular toy introduced in 1963 by a company named Kenner, later bought by Hasbro. The toy oven used a light bulb as a heat source and could actually prepare a few simple kinds of foods.

    • Alecia: Want some cookie dough? Raw cookie dough is a favorite "comfort food" for many people, women especially.

    • Steven: I suggest the witness protection program. The Federal Witness Security Program, better known as the witness protection program, has been around since at least the 1960's. Under it, witnesses who testify against criminals (often organized crime figures) are aided in finding new identities and lives in different locations to protect them against retribution.
