    When Sydney gets a new boyfriend, her grades start to suffer. She tricks Faith into signing a test paper. While Faith finds her old college certificate holder empty, she goes down to the school with Faith to get a copy of it. While there Sydney's teacher comes over, and tells Hope that Sydney told him she was in Ausrailia, and Faith had to sign the paper. Hope, uses the load speaker to call Sydney down to the office. There, they discuss her grades, and that she doesn't want her to see her boyfriend anymore. Just then, the secretary tells Faith that she never finished French Class, so she really never graduated. When she takes the class again, Sydney's boyfriend is in it. Faith decides to pass him a note telling him that Hope will be out for 20 minutes, and to come over after school. Sydney comes home, and Faith tells her the news. Sydney goes upstairs to get ready, and her boyfrend shows up. Faith tells him that nobody's home, and he takes his clothes off.

  • NOTES (2)

    • It's implied that Hope and Faith grew up in the house that they (along with Hope's family) currently occupy.

    • In this episode, it's revealed that Faith's surname (and Hope's maiden name) is "Fairfield." (Faith's high school records are listed under this name, so it can't be a pseudonym from her acting career.)
