    Episode 13
    The three friends and Jerry decide they need to do something about their nerdy image if they're ever going to have any luck with girls. They quickly realize that getting cool clothes and haircuts is way beyond their means if they have to pay for them, but decide that they can do it themselves. So, with a fashion magazine as guide they create their own clothes and haircuts. The fashion editor of "Cool Guide" spots them on the street, and is so impressed she invites them to a photo shoot. They appear in the magazine's next edition portrayed as a hard inner-city youth gang. Despite having first made fun of their clothes, Linda and the girls melt at the sight of them in a magazine and they arrange to hang out with them after school. Before the end of the day, however, an irresistibly handsome man gives a talk against crime at the school, so when the three friends and Jerry come to hang out after class, the girls will have nothing more to do with them.moreless
