    This featured some great lines and excellent use of Junior High situations to teach a valuable lesson about peer pressure and so on. It's very well acted, and provides an excellent oportunity for parents to tal to their own kids. Indeed, I've seen on a couple boards kids who have said they made the choice not to smoke b/c of STeph.
  • Yacking with teen talk

    In this episode it show how peer pressure can take its toll on kids especially about smoking and other things. Steph showed great stregnth in refusing to smoke even though it made her the blunt of jokes and mockery from the other girls. Good going Steph. stick up for what you believe in.

    In the mean time Jesse and Joey loose site of what the reason is for having Kimmy and DJ and Steve on the show. They are so focused on the name of the show they end up fighting about it instead of helping the kids that are calling in.moreless

    • Rebecca: Oh, Steph, I remember junior high. It can be pretty tough.
      Stephanie: You mean, it was tough for you, too?
      Rebecca: Oh, yeah, I remember coming home crying when I came in 2nd for Winter Princess.

    • Mickey: Hey, Steph, you wanna do something after school?
      Stephanie: Well, I do, but my lungs don't.
      Mickey: Oh, you mean the smokes. I'm thinking of cutting back.
      Stephanie: (smiles) Cool.

  • NOTES (2)

    • The ABC Family reruns of this episode heavily censor the smoking scene in the restroom, cutting out any shot depicting a lighter or one of the "bad" girls taking a drag on her cigarette, thus making some of the lines (such as the "bad" girls mocking Stephanie's "Uh-oh, the bell!") make no sense in the edited version.

    • First appearance of Gia, who will be recurring through the remainder of the series.
