Episode Summary

EDIT
Lizzie is excited by the prospect of graduation from junior high and moving on to high school. But when she gets to school she finds a flyer distributed by the high-schoolers warning the junior high kids about what's in store for them when they get on "their" territory. Yearbooks are being distributed also, and along with an insult from Kate, all this makes for a change in Lizzie's attitude. She starts thinking that she's been a failure in junior high and will be a nobody in high school. Her reliable friend Gordo tries to assure her that neither is true. Lizzie jokes about preparing to write, "You rock, don't ever change" a hundred times in yearbooks. While looking through the book, Lizzie and Gordo share tons of memories, illustrated throughout the show by film clips and still photos from many of the previous episodes. Larry Tudgeman asks Lizzie to sign his book and Lizzie writes a very sweet message referring to the times they had together. She tells Gordo that Tudge was the only boy in junior high that truly liked her. Gordo remains silent. Lizzie mentions how important it is to write something meaningful in the yearbook to people who you care about. So when Gordo gets Lizzie's yearbook to sign, he takes a great deal of time, so long in fact that Lizzie has to get hers back from Gordo so Ethan can sign it. While she signs Ethan's book, it's apparent that Lizzie still has traces of the crush on him that she's had for so long. Gordo gets Lizzie's yearbook back again and hangs onto it for a long time. When Lizzie asks if he's finally finished signing, he says he's still working on it. Gordo goes off to sign someone elses yearbook, telling Lizzie to please not look at what he wrote yet. But the temptation is too much for her and she takes a peek. Gordo has written: "Dear Lizzie, You rock. Don't ever change. And only I really mean it." It's a simple message, but one that greatly affects Lizzie, and when the students gather for a group photo, Lizzie plants a big kiss on Gordo's cheek just as the camera snaps. Also, Matt and Melina try to keep cool while Mr. and Mrs. McGuire struggle to repair the broken air-conditioning.moreless
