  • Magic Train (aka Lizzie and Miranda's Magic Train)

    Full Episode

    S 2 : Ep 34 - 2/14/04

    One day after school Lizzie and Miranda are working on their makeup when they happen to see an old childhood favorite "Clover and Daisy's Magic Train" on TV. At first both try to dismiss any interest in the "kiddie" program but finally admit it's still one of their favorites. When Lizzie and Miranda discover that it will be in their town they decide it would be fun to attend a taping of the show. But there's a problem, what would people think of two teenagers attending a children's program? Their solution is to find a child who wants to see the program and they can baby-sit.
    Lizzie and Miranda's first option is Matt, but he's too old for such a baby show and quickly turns them down because he's working on "The McGuire Museum of Dirt, Stains and Grime." Next they try to get Gordo's four year old cousin, Taylor, but his family has moved out of town, so things are looking hopeless. Gordo asks what do they need a young child for so Lizzie and Miranda tell him about Clover and Daisy. Gordo, ever the nonconformist, surprises them by admitting that he also liked that show and points out that they shouldn't care what others think if they attend the show.
    Finally the day arrives but Lizzie and Miranda are still self conscious about going to the taping so they try to make themselves look younger. Unfortunately, they're surprised when Ethan walks into Lizzie's room because he's on a tour of Matt's museum of dirt. Once Lizzie, Miranda and Gordo arrive at the studio they're able to relax and enjoy the show, Lizzie even wins a gift basket. But their high moment suddenly takes a bad turn when they see Kate at the show with two young children. This is too good to pass up so Kate begins calling her friends to let them know who some of Clover and Daisy's biggest fans are.
    The next day at school proves to be very embarrassing as Lizzie, Miranda and Gordo find Clover and Daisy photos taped to their lockers which means everyone knows the truth. Lizzie and Miranda are horrified, but Gordo doesn't care and tries to tell them they should feel the same way. After a long day at school, Lizzie feels like hiding out in her room, but Jo realizes something is wrong and finally gets the truth out of her. To help Lizzie feel better, Jo admits that she still thinks fondly of things from her childhood and she points out that many of the kids at school probably feel the same way. This tender moment suddenly comes to an end when Matt arrives with more kids touring his museum.
    The next day Lizzie and Miranda try to dress in a more grown up fashion and not worry about what others think, but Kate isn't going to let this moment go. She continues with the teasing until Gordo begins singing Clover and Daisy's song in the courtyard. At first Lizzie and Miranda try to get him to stop because he's drawing everyone's attention to them, but later Lizzie realizes the message in the song is true and you don't have to be a kid to enjoy it. So she defiantly stands up daring the others to admit they also like Clover and Daisy and soon almost everyone has joined her in reliving a bit of their childhood.moreless
  • One of the Guys

    S 2 : Ep 33 - 11/21/03

    After setting a new school record in gym and then beating Ethan Craft in arm-wrestling, Lizzie is invited to play touch football with the "cute guys." But after winning the game, Ethan and the guys call her a "great dude" and "a monster" while Kate insults her as a "guy-girl." This worries Lizzie so much that she makes an early-morning call to Miranda for advice. Miranda suggests she emphasize her feminine side more, which Lizzie spends the rest of the morning doing. A talk with Coach Kelly helps Lizzie see things in a different light. Afterward she tells off Kate and goes back onto the field to play with the boys again. Meanwhile, Matt isn't doing his math homework. He falls asleep and wakes up to find it all done, but he has no idea that Fredo the chimp snuck into his room and did it for him! Before the truth comes out, Jo and Sam are happy to see their son doing so well in the subject and Melina wants Matt to do her homework for her.moreless
  • The Gordo Shuffle

    Full Episode

    S 2 : Ep 31 - 6/13/03

    At school, Gordo tells Lizzie and Ethan he got a credit card in the mail with a $5,000 line of credit. He says he's not going to keep it, but the other two convince him to hang onto it. Later, though, while talking to Lizzie on the phone, Gordo has a brainstorm: use the credit card to finance the film he wants to make! Later at school Gordo is in full director mode, hiring Tudgeman as his technical advisor and Ethan and Kate as the leads in his science-fiction flick. He even hires Claire as Kate's personal stylist, then gives the two girls the card to go spend on wardrobe and make-up! Lizzie watches all this and is very concerned with the way Gordo is throwing around money that he doesn't really have. When she tells him this, he gets mad at her for not being supportive of his lifelong dream of filmmaking. When filming actually begins, nothing goes right. Kate, not surprisingly, acts like a prima donna, Ethan can't get his lines straight and Gordo can't seem to get a single good take to go in the can. Lizzie watches all this from the sidelines in dismay. During a break, Ethan tells Lizzie he's surprised to see that she's not being supportive of Gordo and his dream, which gives Lizzie something to think about. A load of pizzas arrive for the hungry, frustrated cast and crew, but when Tudge tries to pay for them with the card, the deliveryman cuts it in half--it's been declined for being over the limit. Kate storms off the set followed by Claire, Ethan and the others. When they are left alone, Lizzie tells Gordo, "I don't know what to say." Gordo snaps at her, "Don't say anything," and leaves himself. Later at Lizzie's house, Gordo comes over to apologize, even though Lizzie wonders if maybe she should be the one doing the apologizing. But Gordo has learned a lesson about financing movies. He's also going to be without an allowance for quite some time, so he tells Lizzie that they will have to be content just hanging out with each other, doing pretty much nothing. Lizzie doesn't think that sounds too bad. Also, Matt has been avoiding working on his school science project, but the deadline is coming up soon. He tries making various impractical inventions, eventually coming up with a hamster-powered toaster. Melina sees it and has this advice: make it bigger. So he does, finally winding up with a huge Rube Goldberg-type device. When he shows it to his parents, naturally his clumsy father trips over it, setting it off. The machine works, but not too well, as it burns the toast.moreless
  • My Fair Larry

    Full Episode

    S 2 : Ep 30 - 5/16/03

    Miranda is psyched about being allowed to have a real "boy/girl" party at her place. She wants to make it the coolest party ever, so she invites Kate, Ethan, and everyone else--except Larry Tudgeman. Lizzie thinks this is unkind to Tudgeman, but Miranda is sure he will only ruin the party. After Miranda hands invitations out to everyone, Larry comes up and asks where his is; she tells him his not invited, she didn't think he'd be interested. Tudge is obviously hurt but tries to act like he has other things to do, namely a Star Trek "Star Fleet" convention to attend. Lizzie feels so sorry for Larry that she devises a plan and enlists the help of Gordo after reminding him how upset he felt when Danny Kessler didn't invite him to his pool party. They convince Larry to let them help him and turn him from uncool Larry into very stylish Lawrence (after a few makeovers that don't work so well!). After sneaking him into the party everyone wants to know who this new guy is, even Kate! Miranda is impressed with the hunky new guy too and has a dance with him; in fact, she seems on the verge of kissing him when "Lawrence" reveals to her that he is really Larry! Miranda is at first shocked along with the rest of the partygoers but then realizes that it was wrong to exclude someone from a party just because they may not be "cool." Meanwhile, the teacher Ms. Chapman assigns Matt and Melina to the "Senior Pals" program as part of a community service project, something the pair are not too thrilled about. They are matched up with Moe and Marge from a local retirement home. At first both couples think their day together will be very long and boring, but it turns out that Moe and Marge are the mirror image of Matt and Melina as seventy-somethings! The foursome then spends the day pulling pranks, making mischief and generally having a fun time, so much fun, in fact, that the "old folks" miss their curfew at the retirement home and the youngsters have to help sneak them in!moreless

    S 2 : Ep 25 - 2/21/03

    A water pipe bursts in a wall in Matt's room and to Lizzie's horror she'll have to share her room with her brother until the repairs are done. That doesn't look like it will be anytime soon, as the McGuires have hired a repairman who could have come straight out of the movie The Money Pit. Predictably, the pairing of Matt and Lizzie doesn't work at all. They fight about everything--he wants the window open, she wants it closed; she wants the shade down, he wants it up; he wants the door closed, she wants it open. All the bickering keeps Mr. McGuire, already frazzled by the repairman, awake all night. Lizzie's not doing too good at school, either. The spacey art teacher Ms. Dew has come up with an idea for a school "unity" project: all the students will dip their hands in paint and put their handprints on a blank wall, making a mural. But instead of promoting unity, the students break into cliques, and Lizzie, Miranda and Gordo don't fit into any of them, not Kate and the cheerleaders, not Ethan and the "perfect hair" people, not even Tudgeman and the sci-fi freaks. Mrs. McGuire has her own inspirational idea: she wants to paint the front door a color that represents the occupants--only she's not sure what color and what it should stand for, so she ends up going through the rainbow. Back at home, Mr. McGuire takes a drastic step to force Lizzie and Matt to get along. He takes all their possessions out of the room, leaving them only a couple of sleeping bags, so they will concentrate on getting along. Matt and Lizzie quickly realize that they must at least appear to be cooperating if life is going to get back to normal, so they start acting as if things couldn't be better between them. This makes their dad pround of his plan, but their mom sees right through their sweetness-and-light routine. Finally, after about a week, the repairman gets done fixing Matt's room and extorting money from the McGuires, by which time the siblings have learned to live together. At school, Lizzie, Gordo and Miranda search desperately for some group the can be a part of for the unity project, but everyone rejects them--the drama club, the jocks, even the chess club! Finally, they realize that they don't have to be part of another group, that the only group they truly care about are the three of them, so they don't worry about where their handprints go on the wall, except that they be together. It turns out that the unity project worked after all, as the three friends visit the wall again and can't tell which of the hundreds of handprints belong to themselves.moreless
  • Bye, Bye Hillridge Junior High

    Full Episode

    S 2 : Ep 24 - 2/7/03

    Lizzie is excited by the prospect of graduation from junior high and moving on to high school. But when she gets to school she finds a flyer distributed by the high-schoolers warning the junior high kids about what's in store for them when they get on "their" territory. Yearbooks are being distributed also, and along with an insult from Kate, all this makes for a change in Lizzie's attitude. She starts thinking that she's been a failure in junior high and will be a nobody in high school. Her reliable friend Gordo tries to assure her that neither is true. Lizzie jokes about preparing to write, "You rock, don't ever change" a hundred times in yearbooks. While looking through the book, Lizzie and Gordo share tons of memories, illustrated throughout the show by film clips and still photos from many of the previous episodes. Larry Tudgeman asks Lizzie to sign his book and Lizzie writes a very sweet message referring to the times they had together. She tells Gordo that Tudge was the only boy in junior high that truly liked her. Gordo remains silent. Lizzie mentions how important it is to write something meaningful in the yearbook to people who you care about. So when Gordo gets Lizzie's yearbook to sign, he takes a great deal of time, so long in fact that Lizzie has to get hers back from Gordo so Ethan can sign it. While she signs Ethan's book, it's apparent that Lizzie still has traces of the crush on him that she's had for so long. Gordo gets Lizzie's yearbook back again and hangs onto it for a long time. When Lizzie asks if he's finally finished signing, he says he's still working on it. Gordo goes off to sign someone elses yearbook, telling Lizzie to please not look at what he wrote yet. But the temptation is too much for her and she takes a peek. Gordo has written: "Dear Lizzie, You rock. Don't ever change. And only I really mean it." It's a simple message, but one that greatly affects Lizzie, and when the students gather for a group photo, Lizzie plants a big kiss on Gordo's cheek just as the camera snaps. Also, Matt and Melina try to keep cool while Mr. and Mrs. McGuire struggle to repair the broken air-conditioning.moreless

    S 2 : Ep 23 - 1/31/03

    What's this? Lizzie in a wedding dress, walking down the aisle? Gordo, Kate, Tudgeman, Cousin Amy and Veruca are all in the audience, but they're dressed strangely in old fashioned clothes. And now we see that Lizzie's about to marry Ethan!?!? Just before "I do," Jo McGuire comes rushing in wearing a maid's uniform, shouting in a near-incomprehensible Cockney accent about someone being murdered!! Whaaaa? Let's go back a few days... Ethan tells Lizzie that he can't use his own house for a party he had planned, so she volunteers her own house, hoping to get his attention, as always. It's going to be a 1920's murder-mystery party, where all the guests play a character and compete to solve the mystery. When everyone gathers to pick their parts, Lizzie can't believe her luck: she picked Ethan's wife-to-be! Gordo on the other hand is disappointed. He tells Lizzie that once again he'll be the "low-key" friend that no one notices. Lizzie assures him that people do notice him, and that one way to get her attention would be to solve the mystery at the party. She doesn't think he has much chance, though, since she's sure her "Nancy Drew training" will make her the winner. The aforementioned people all gather at Lizzie's house, all of them in costume and in character. Also there is Ethan's stepmom Tawny, who is so "clue-less" she makes Ethan look like a brain by comparison! Matt shows up uninvited in a Sherlock Holmes outfit, proclaiming he's going to solve the crime. And Mr. McGuire is there too, playing the murder victim, though this "corpse" is not too interested in laying on the ground for very long. Lizzie goes right to work on trying to solve the mystery, but every time she finds a clue, Gordo tries to steal it so he can solve it himself. Lizzie wonders out loud to Kate why Gordo is being so competitive about this. Kate has been playing a sweet character all evening, and some of it must have rubbed off on her, because she take Lizzie aside and flatly tells her that Gordo is trying to impress nobody but her. She says that everyone else has know for a long time that Gordo has had a big crush on Lizzie. Lizzie is flabbergasted by this news. Flustered, she says she has to go reveal the identity of the killer to the rest of the group. Lizzie is still reeling from this new information. She knows how important it is for Gordo to win, so should she let him? But if she lets him, does that mean she likes Gordo the same way he likes her? As Lizzie reveals to the group how she solved the mystery, she can see that Gordo is obviously disappointed that he won't win the game and impress her. So at the last minute, Lizzie deliberately names the wrong person, Tudgeman, as the killer. (Tudge has had a little romantic interlude of his own that night with Veruca.) Gordo immediately jumps up and correctly solves the mystery. He recieves congratulations from all. As the party breaks up, Gordo and Lizzie spend a few moments alone on the front porch, with a great deal of romantic tension hanging in the air. Lizzie tells Gordo she was very impressed with him. He's happy to hear this, but tries to hide just how happy he is. The two spend a few more awkward moments talking, then Gordo seems to be getting up the nerve to ask Lizzie out--like a girlfriend. But Sam McGuire makes an untimely appearance at the front door, and the moment is gone. Lizzie and Gordo part as "just friends," like always. Yet after Gordo leaves, Lizzie knows that her feelings are telling her that things aren't going to be the same after this night.moreless
  • Dear Lizzie

    Full Episode

    S 2 : Ep 22 - 1/24/03

    Gordo, editor of the schools "E-zine," reluctantly makes Lizzie the website's advice columnist (it was either her or the flaky faculty advisor Ms. Dew.) But she does surprisingly well in the job. After giving great advice to students like Parker McKenzie and Claire Miller, Lizzie's reputation and popularity skyrocket. But soon she gets overwhelmed with requests for help, and some of the advice she gives turns out badly, like when she suggests to Veruca that she stand up to the school bully. Now Lizzie's afraid to give help to others who have asked, like Ethan, Kate and Tudgeman. Lizzie imagines the possible bad results of her advice: Ethan cuts off all his hair, Kate joins the Peace Corps and becomes a menu selection for cannibals, and Tudge becomes a "Dr. Evil"-like villain demanding two billion dollars from President Craft (and First Lady Kate) or he will destroy the world! Lizzie's confidence is badly shaken and she's ready to quit the job, but Gordo wants her to stay on. He compromises with her: answer one more e-mail, he says, then turn in the column. Lizzie takes desperate measures--she goes to her parents for advice! She and her mother are surprised when her dad understands the situation so clearly, and he advises Lizzie to relax and answer the next e-mail as if she was the one writing to herself for advice. After trying this, she feels better and gives the column to Gordo the next day. Gordo tells her she gave great advice to "Confused Guy." Then we--but not Lizzie--find out that "Confused Guy" is really Gordo! He wrote to Lizzie telling her he thinks he may have stronger feelings than he realized before for his best (girl) friend! Lizzie wrote back telling him to simply follow his heart and go with his feelings on this matter. Gordo seems to be on the verge of following this advice and revealing his true feelings for Lizzie--but he stops just short. In the meantime, Matt finds he has another rival for troublemaking class clown, as a boy named Adam is puling all the pranks, getting all the laughs, and being sent to the office by the teacher instead of him. Matt fights back, but this Adam is a tough customer. But with a little help from Melina, Matt once again sets things straight.moreless

    S 2 : Ep 21 - 1/1/03

    Lizzie is doing some awfully strange things to get her picture in the class yearbook as many times as possible. When Gordo puts her down for this, she reminds him he did the very same thing himself earlier. Lizzie figures she will be in eleven different pictures, but the yearbook editor Kate has different ideas. True to her usually-rotten self, Kate tells Lizzie she's only going to let a single picture of her run in the yearbook--one in which she's breaking out in a rash from a food allergy! Kate plans to get her picture taken with Ethan at the school's Monte Carlo Night that evening, then rush the yearbook off to the printer. To foil this plan, Lizzie comes up with an elaborate scheme worthy of the casino heist in the movie Ocean's Eleven. The whole McGuire clan gets involved, including Matt, who is persuaded along by a major wedgie given to him by Lizzie! Gordo and Melina also help out on the grand design.moreless

    S 2 : Ep 20 - 12/6/02

    Lizzie and Gordo are at a Christmas charity drive where they bring presents to an unlikely-looking Santa Claus. Lizzie fervently hopes to win the grand prize in the Christmas parade with her idea for a "Rock & Roll Christmas" float, but she'll have competition from Tudgeman, who is building a "Christmas Deathstar" float and also Kate and her cousin Amy, who have hired professionals to build theirs. The rest of the McGuire family are there, and they are charmed by an eccentric old man in an elf suit who calls himself Nobby Frostybump and seems to really believe he's one of Santa's elves! Lizzie is disappointed that her family is going off to dinner with Nobby instead of working on the float, but Gordo stays to help. Hours later, Lizzie comes home and is surprised by Nobby. His senior-citizens home is having plumbing problems and he will stay with the McGuires fro a few days.

    The next day Lizzie and Gordo are busy working on the float. Nobby gets the bad news that the plumbing in his building won't be fixed until after Christmas. The McGuire family volunteers to help fix the plumbing themselves so the old man and his friends can spend Christmas at home. That is, all except Lizzie, who is now obsessed with working on her float. To her dismay, Gordo goes along with the others to help, leaving her to work alone. After many hours, an exhausted Lizzie falls asleep. She has a dream right out of Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol in which various characters remind her what the true meaning of Christmas is. In the bargain she also realizes the solutions to the plumbing problems that her family has been unable to fix. Though it costs her a chance to enter a float in the parade, Lizzie is happy with the way things turn out. But as if by magic, her float does appear, ridden by a singing Santa Claus, who looks and sounds suspiciously like Steven Tyler of Aerosmith!moreless

    A major food fight is raging in the cafeteria. Lizzie, Gordo and Miranda try to stay on the sidelines until Lizzie gets hit squarely with a meatball. In anger she grabs another one herself, cocks her arm and yells "Who threw that?!?!" Unfortunately, that's the moment when Principal Tweedy walks in the door. He sees Lizzie, Kate Sanders and Larry Tudgeman right in the middle of things and calls them to his office. For punishment, the three will have to clean up the huge mess and do some community service, but they can ease their punishment if they write out an account of what happened and name the person responsible for starting the food fight. Stuck together working, the trio each tell their own version of how the fight started, shown in flashbacks. In Kate's account, she arrives at school greeted like the queen she thinks she is. She's kind and caring to all her subjects and everyone loves her, including Lizzie, Miranda and Gordo, who are dying to be her friend again. Larry's version pictures him looking like Keanu Reeves in The Matrix (with shades and leather jacket, but still the same shirt!) The super-cool dude arrives early to work on a math theorem "disproving infinity;" and during the food fight, he deftly avoids all the flying food with his nimble moves. Lizze, Gordo and Miranda are in awe of him. Kate and Larry both try to team up with Lizzie in blaming the third person for the mess so they can get out of punishment, and then Lizzie realizes the two of them are going to gang up against her. She tells her version of what happened, which is a lot closer to reality, except that in her story before she leaves home she has to endure her parents' favoritism to her brother Matt. Lizzie realizes that all three of their stories have something in common--they all had some interaction with another student named Gustav, who accidentally upset a tray of food and inadvertently started the food fight. She also tells the other two that while none of them were responsible for starting the fight, none of them did anything to discourage it, either. When Principal Tweedy comes into the clean cafeteria later that afternoon, he finds only a written statement from Lizzie, telling him that while they didn't start the fight, they're not going to blame anyone else. Meanwhile, Matt and Lanny are goofing around on the way to the bus after a field trip to the museum, and they end up missing their ride back to school. Matt's in a panic at first, but Lanny convinces him (without a word, as usual!) that it's not their fault and they end up enjoying the day, running around downtown having all sorts of fun. But who should spot them while they're out--Matt's parents!moreless
  • Party Over Here

    Full Episode

    S 2 : Ep 18 - 9/20/02

    Kate is having a big birthday party and her mother is making her invite her whole class, including Lizzie, Miranda and Gordo. Lizzie is dead set against going until she finds out cell phones will be given out as party favors. But her mom puts the brakes on her idea of going because there will be no "acceptable chaperone" there. Miranda suggests the three of them say they are going to the mall, then sneak out to the party. Lizzie is reluctant to go along with the idea, but she does. Gordo gets his parents' permission to go, but that only frustrates him since his parents think he's such a good boy he couldn't possibly get into trouble. So he tries, rather unsuccessfully, to show he has a dangerous "dark side." When Lizzie, Miranda and Gordo arrive at Kate's house the party is ragin': loud music is pumping, Lizzie gets handed over people's heads like a stage diver in a mosh pit, and the supposed "chaperone," Kate's 18-year-old cousin Amy, is making out in the closet! None of their classmates are there, only a bunch of older kids. When Amy brings out a cake, Kate is disappointed to find that it has no candles and no one sings "Happy Birthday." In fact, Amy didn't even realize it was Kate's birthday! Kate's face gets pushed into the cake. Lizzie, Miranda and Gordo plan to leave, but before they can, Lizzie overhears a phone call Kate makes to her mom. It seems that Kate wanted a small party with a few friends, but her mother insisted she have a big bash, then she didn't stick around for it. Now there are none of her classmates there, just a hundred or so of her cousin's friends. Soft-hearted Lizzie offers Kate her sympathy, and even asks her to go to the movies with her, Gordo and Miranda, which Kate agrees to. But there's a problem: Kate can't leave the house in the hands of all these party animals. So Lizzie finds a way to bust up the party--she gets a mom, specifically her own mom, to come over. Jo McGuire arrives on the scene and runs everyone out in short order. Lizzie hopes her "mature" handling of the situation will keep her from getting grounded, but of course it doesn't. As for Kate, she does manage to thank Lizzie, but she sneers at her the next second, so things are back to normal. Also, Matt and Mr. McGuire have big news: at the mall, a producer spotted them and wants to put them in a commercial for Cardio Punch Sports Drink. But Mrs. McGuire is skeptical that her very camera-shy husband can do it. When Sam and Matt arrive at the commercial shoot, the director puts a harness and line on the guys and has them climbing a rock wall. Sam is scared of heights and gets paralyzed while doing the climb, and the director says some nasty things to him. Matt rappels down the rock wall and tells off the director in no uncertain terms. But the guy likes Matt's fiery speech and edits it so the commercial has Matt delivering it to an animated dragon that he fights off.moreless

    Gordo and Miranda may be stressed out about starting the eighth grade, but Lizzie feels great about it. She's so self-confident, in fact, that she's taken on mentoring a seventh-grader named Andie, even though Kate sneers at her for associating with a "sevy." Andie seems to worship the ground that Lizzie walks on, and it appears to be a great arrangement at first. But things start to turn a little creepy when Andie starts turning into a clone of Lizzie, imitating her hair style, then dying her hair, then dressing exactly like her! What's even more unnerving to Lizzie is how much Gordo and Miranda like her--even more than the real item, it seems! Gordo is especially taken with Andie, and he actually talks about dating her! Meanwhile, Matt faces a crisis with his Wilderness Cadets group. He must earn a merit patch very soon or he will be demoted to a Bunny Cadet! Dad tries to help him earn the patch but only proceeds to get a bad case of poison ivy and nearly sets himself on fire. Lizzie is tormented by dreams of Andie stealing away her best friends, going after Ethan Craft (who Andie has already got her eye on), and even taking her place in the family. So when Lizzie comes home with Miranda one day to find Andi there unexpectedly visiting with her mother and Gordo, she lowers the boom. She tells Andie she doesn't appreciate her trying to become a clone of herself and lets her know that her mentoring days are over. Andie stalks out in anger. Gordo and Miranda think Lizzie might have been too rough on the girl, but the next day at school they find that Andie has a new role model to emulate--Kate! Meanwhile Sam McGuire is still suffering injuries trying to help Matt, but his son still hasn't earned his patch. But Jo figures out that Matt qualifies for a patch in first aid after taking care of his dad.moreless

    Lizzie is stuck on the Spring Fling dance committee with Kate. While they are checking out the site for the dance, Kate accidentally knocks over a bust of the school's first principal, cracking the stone head wide open. Kate shows little concern for what she did, though. She thinks if Lizzie keeps quiet, no one will ever know she did it. But Lizzie is concerned about the misdeed. She, Gordo and Miranda try but fail to put the statue back together again--using chewing gum! Principal Tweedy is angry about the "vandalism" and announces he will call off the dance if the culprit is not revealed. Gordo warns her not to be "a fink," but Miranda wants Lizzie to tell, because she has a real live date to the dance! Finally, Lizzie goes to see the principal, and at an assembly he announces that Lizzie has confessed to breaking the statue. The dance will be held, but Lizzie will not be allowed to attend. Gordo and Miranda realize what a sacrifice Lizzie just made. Kate is her usual self, telling friends, "I knew she did it, I just didn't want to tell on her!" Meanwhile, Matt and Lanny are drooling over a $105 BMX bike, but Sam and Jo McGuire tell them they'll have to earn the money themselves for it. After cleaning out the attic of their oddball neighbor Mrs. Carribino, the boys have enough money for a single bike, which they buy and intend to share. Lanny takes the first ride, leaving Matt alone with no bike and no friend. The night of the dance, both Lizzie and Matt are at home sitting around depressed.

But who should come to the door but Gordo...followed by Miranda...and Ethan...and Larry and a few dozen others who appreciate what Lizzie did.

    Lizzie starts feeling inferior when she realizes a lot of the other kids around her have special talents and skills that they've developed, including Gordo with his filmmaking and Miranda with her violin. [When did that happen?--Ed.] She worries that she's being left behind and imagines herself in the future working at a fast-food window while her old friends Gordo and Miranda have made successes of themselves and forgotten about her. Lizzie blames her parents at first for not making her pursue a special interest but Sam and Jo McGuire tell her that they've always supported her, whatever she did or didn't do. Finally Lizzie puts a number of "dream" occupations in a hat and picks them out one at a time, with Miranda and Gordo on hand. While doing this, Lizzie has fantasies about what her future might be like. The final fantasy is about Lizzie as a stay-home mom, but her husband in it is not Ethan Craft--it's Gordo! This jolts Lizzie back to reality, and she comes to feel OK about herself again. Also, Jo isn't sure that Matt should be watching a scary horror film, but Sam says it's OK. But the movie does a number on Matt's head, and he can't sleep at night for fear of a an evil "presence" in the house. Things get so bad that Sam has his two familiar softball buddies come over to perform a "housecleaning" just like in the movie Ghostbusters, but all the guys succeed in doing is wrecking the back porch. But that reveals what the "presence" is--it's a dog who just had puppies!moreless

    S 2 : Ep 9 - 6/28/02

    As usual, Lizzie and her brother Matt are involved in a big fight. "Fine! I'll stay out of your life!" they both scream at each other simultaneously. Then, to their amazement, something totally unbelieveable and mysterious happens--their personalities switch bodies, Matt becoming Lizzie and Lizzie becoming Matt! The siblings are horrified by the change, but they are unable to explain it to their parents, so they have no choice but to go to school like everything was normal. Well, not exactly. Matt (as Lizzie) dresses up like Elton John on his worst day and goes around school tripping over his (her) shoes, making better friends with Ethan Craft by talking about guy stuff like scabs and bruises. Gordo and Miranda are mystified by the changes in the girl they think is their old friend Lizzie, especailly after she pulls a revenge prank on Kate. Meanwhile Lizzie (as Matt) slicks her (his) hair down and dresses like a nerd, hoping to stay quiet and attract as little attention as possible. But that doesn't happen, as Melina tells him (her) that he's in trouble for a prank some other student pulled. Lizzie (Matt) tells her and Lanny about the strange occurance that took place, and surprisingly, they believe him (or is it her?) So they seek out the real culprit, Clark Benson, and clear Matt's name. Miranda and Gordo are also surprised--they think the new Lizzie is showing more self-confidence than ever before. The brother and sister finally arrive home and compare notes on what has happened during the day, finding out that they both helped solve problems for each other. But they are no closer to getting back into their own bodies than they were when the left home in the morning. That night, Matt (Lizzie) tosses around uncomfortably in his bed and falls on the floor. In her room, Lizzie awakens suddenly, and yes, she's Lizzie once again! She rushes into the hall where she meets up with Matt and tells him she's back to normal, but they are interrupted briefly by their parents. After Mr. and Mrs. McGuire go back to bed, Lizzie asks Matt if the whole weird ordeal really happened. Matt asks back warily--did what happen? The whole issue is left up in the air.moreless

    Lizzie, Miranda and Gordo walk into Mr. Dig's class all mad at each other about some incident. Mr. Dig assigns them an historical scavenger hunt in place of a regular test. The former friends find new partners for the hunt: Lizzie latches onto Ethan Craft, Gordo reluctantly teams with Kate Sanders, while Miranda gets stuck with Larry Tudgeman. The trio of teams proceed to search the city for clues that Mr. Dig has left, and the first team to complete the task receives an "A." When Matt finds the assignment in Lizzie's room, he reads that there is "treasure" at the end of the search, so he goes off hunting down clues himself. But Mr. Dig's idea of treasure is not the same as Matt's. Meanwhile, Sam and Jo McGuire realize that they have the house to themselves for a while! So what do they naturally do? Act like kids by having pillow fights, eating messy snacks, etc! While they are on the hunt, Lizzie, Miranda and Gordo reveal to their partners what the big fight with their friends was all about--it was just a simple mix-up over who was supposed to meet who at what time. All three agree, though, that they are not going to be the one to apologize. After listening, Larry, Ethan, and even Kate all tell them they are lucky that they have such good friends and that it would be silly to break up their friendship over so trivial an incident. The scavenger hunt heats up with all three teams racing for the finish line. Lizzie and Ethan are in the lead, but before they can cross the line, Lizzie stops and apologizes to Gordo and Miranda when they reach the scene. The former friends make up again and all three teams cross the finish line at the same time--only to find out another team has already won!moreless

So she finds another solution to make her "free and independent"--she takes a job as a busboy at the Digital Bean. But the new job is more than she bargained for.

    At lunch, Gordo tries to get seats at the cheerleaders' table for Lizzie, Miranda and himself, but Kate and Claire run them off and they have to eat on the grass. What's worse, they have to watch the cheerleaders practice. While doing a pyramid formation, Kate falls off the top and dislocates her shoulder. The next day when she arrives at the lunch table with her arm in a sling, Claire coldly informs her that since she can't cheer, she's been voted off the squad and isn't allowed to sit with them. All of a sudden Kate is a social nobody, reduced to eating her lunch alone on the grass and banished to the "dork hall!" Lizzie, Miranda and Gordo soon find out that life with Claire as the new "Queen B" at the school is much worse that it was with Kate at the top, so Lizzie convinces her friends to start a campaign to make Kate popular again. Their efforts don't work at first, so Lizzie tries another idea: make it possible for Kate to cheer once more. After convincing Kate to go along with the idea, Lizzie teaches her a variety of one-armed cartwheels and tumbles. Kate learns well but is her typical self and barely gives Lizzie a word of thanks. Kate then shows up at cheerleading practice and challenges Claire. After watching Kate do a series of spectacular tricks, Claire attempts a cartwheel and injures her wrist. The next day at lunch Claire is in the same situation as Kate was before, and she morosely heads for a table to sit by herself. Lizzie and her friends are disappointed that Kate didn't learn anything from her experience, but they're in for an amazing surprise when Kate goes over to Claire and offers to let her sit with her fellow cheerleaders. Kate briefly looks at Lizzie and acknowledges her debt to her, but just as quickly she and Claire shoot back a nasty look, letting Lizzie, Gordo and Miranda know that things are back to normal. And it looks like that's the way everyone wants it to be. Meanwhile, Matt comes home with big news--he got a one-line part in a school play. With Lanny's help, he constantly practices his one line, but he gets the ego of a leading man. Soon he is ordering his mother around like she's his flunky, much to her irritation. His treatment of Lanny also drives him away. Mr. and Mrs. McGuire put their foot down on Matt's behavior, but when he starts to protest he loses his voice. A humbled Matt apologizes to his mother for the way he acted and he apologizes to Lanny too, who agrees to take over his part! (No, we don't see or hear Lanny at the play!)moreless

This gives Gordo an idea. He sets up several hidden cameras around the school which catch lots of embarrassing moments on tape. Gordo plans to make a movie and enter it in a local competition, hoping to prove with it that even the popular kids have things to be embarrassed about.
