  • Heather has the hots for Wheels, and L.D. finds out she has cancer.

    In this episode, Heather plans a party so that she may get closer to her crush, Wheels. It seems a little odd to me that she would be attractive to Wheels, seeing that he is having so many problems at home with his grandmother, and his tendency to lie. In any case, Heather and Whhels find themselves alone on the front porch, and make out, right in front of the livingroom window. Erica breaks it up thankfully. The couple bids each other an akward goodnight, with Wheels promising to call (he never did). Their friendship is now weird and strained.

    On the b-side, L.D. finds out she had leukemia, and she tells her best gal pal, Lucy. Lucy is brought to tears, and instead of going to the twin's party, she goes back to the hospital to cheer up L.D. This episode shows the strength of their friendship. If Lucy Fernandez was a real person, I bet she'd make a darn good BFF!
