Episode Summary

EDIT
A Gordo Story (aka Inner Beauty II: A Gordo Story)
AIRED:
Lizzie, Gordo, Miranda and Ethan Craft are playing a little basketball (and doing a lot of trash-talkin'!) when Parker McKenzie comes by to watch. After Gordo gets his last shot stuffed by Ethan, Parker comes over to talk, and it looks like she's got her eye on Gordo. He surprises Lizzie and Miranda by saying he might ask Parker out to the upcoming dance. Later at the Digital Bean, though, he's hesitating until Lizzie and Miranda encourage him to do it. When he does ask Parker, she simply tells him, "I can't." Lizzie asks her why she turned Gordo down and Parker is blunt: he's short. He might be a nice enough guy to hang out with, but she doesn't want to go out with a short guy. Gordo overhears this and is obviously devastated. He leave the Digital Bean, leaving behind his two friends, who don't feel very good, either. At school the next day, Lizzie and Miranda are still concerned. Gordo stumbles onto the scene wearing a pair of new (high-heeled) cowboy boots, claiming he's OK with what happened with Parker. But when Miranda blurts out that Parker is going to the dance with Ethan, his mood turns glum. He accuses Miranda and Lizzie of "buying into the whole 'tall guy' thing." Later Gordo talks to Mr. Dig, telling him that his shortness never used to bother him before, but now he can't stop thinking about it. Mr. Dig tries to tell him that once his height stops mattering to him, it won't matter to anyone else he cares about. Gordo stops by Lizzie's house and apologizes for saying she was part of the problem; he realizes the problem is within himself. Lizzie assures him that she and Miranda like him just the way he is. Gordo asks Lizzie to go to the dance with him, and after a few short jokes, she agrees. At the dance, Gordo is there with two "dates," Lizzie and Miranda. They watch Parker out on the dance floor, looking like she's afraid she'll get hit by one of Ethan's flailing limbs while he's doing his spastic dancing. Parker comes over and apologizes to Gordo for the way she treated him, realizing she'd have been better off going to the dance with him. She asks Gordo for a dance, and Miranda and Lizzie agree to let him. Miranda goes out on the floor too, to dance with Ethan. That leaves Lizzie alone--and suddenly feeling very empty inside. Meanwhile, Matt has to do a report on his family's ancestors, but he's disappointed to find out that the McGuire relatives were pretty dull ones, especially compared to Lanny's family tree. So Matt cooks up a preposterous family history, starting with George Washington and going through Davy Crockett and Elvis. Lanny sees right through this silliness and stops talking to Matt. ("How can he tell?" asks his Dad.)moreless
