    This episode introduces you to the Thatcher family. Becca is starting highschool, but unfortanately so is her autistic brother Corky and she is not happy about it. Libby, the mom, is nervous about mainstreaming him; she's not sure if he can handle it and she doesn't want him to get hurt. Mom and Dad take Corky to school and think that they will get to go to some of his classes with him, but are informed that they aren't allowed. The principle says that Corky will be fine. We are introduced to Tyler; I had the hugest crush on him back in the day.
    Corky is accused of cheating, which he disproves by saying some of the poem. He asks if they want him to keep going. When they ask him how much of the poem he knows, he informs him that he knows the WHOLE thing and its a really long poem. Libby turns 40.
    Becca meets Tyler's brother, who just happens to be autistic as well.
