Episode Summary

Inner Beauty
Miranda and Lizzie are rehearsing dance steps for a music video Gordo is making. During a break he makes an offhand remark about how much snack food Miranda is putting away. The next day at school Gordo shows the girls some still photos he took the day before. Miranda, already putting pressure on herself to make better grades and improve herself, reacts unreasonably to one picture, saying that she looks terribly fat, even though Lizzie and Gordo assure she's not at all. Later at lunch Miranda, quite unlike herself, doesn't eat anything. At the McGuire house afterwards, the trio is rehearsing for the video again. Miranda grows faint and almost passes out in front of Mrs. McGuire. Miranda assures everyone that she's alright, but Lizzie is still concerned. When Lizzie tries to talk to her later, Miranda is very unresponsive and uncooperative. Lizzie talks to her mom about Miranda, saying that she's especially concerned about her new eating habits. Jo McGuire agrees to talk to Miranda and her mom in a few days if the situation continues. Gordo is concerned about Miranda too, and when she shows up for a video shoot in a sullen and depressed mood, he and Lizzie talk to her about what they think is wrong. Miranda admits that she has been feeling a lot of pressure lately with schoolwork, grades, planning her future, etc. She tells her friends that how much she ate was one area of her life that it seemed she had complete control over, but now she realizes that she went overboard. With things back on track, Lizzie, Miranda and Gordo complete their music video. Also, it seems that Matt has been encouraged at school to believe that he has great artistic potential. Mr. and Mrs. McGuire are surprised to hear this, but they try their best to support his artistic endeavors. But that gets hard to do when Matt, with Lanny's help, trashes the house with his "artistic" creations, ending up by using the family car as a canvas!moreless
