Episode Summary

EDIT
Love Takes Guts! Godai's Part Time Job Ploy!
AIRED:
As Kyoko cleans out her room, she notices something stuck in the back of her closet. When she pulls it out to inspect it, she realizes its a rock that her late husband gave her. Its quite large and has mysterious green specks in it. Kyoko wonders if it had any special meaning, and asks Godai if he could help her learn something about it. He agrees to try his best and takes it to school with him. Godai meets Kozue at a bookstore later that day and they go window shopping for the upcoming Christmas holidays. Kozue points out an expensive cat brooch that she thinks is cute and so Godai decides to take on as many jobs as he can to buy Kozue, Kyoko and Ikuko presents. He and Sakamoto get a variety of odd jobs including a children's drama show, cashiers and sewer workers. He finally earns enough money and buys the brooch for Kozue, a bracelet for Kyoko and a Dappya doll for Ikuko. He also learns that Sakamoto knows someone in the Geology department that can identify the rock for Kyoko. Meanwhile, Akemi and the others ask if he'll be coming to the annual Chachamaru Christmas party, and he says he plans on it if Kyoko will be there. The next day, Godai tries to give Kyoko her present, but is interrupted by Mrs. Ichinose. On his last study session of the year with Ikuko, he gives her her present and she mentions to him that the rock of Kyoko's is the only thing Soichiro ever gave her. Godai becomes slightly depressed at the thought of how important the rock is to the Manager. That night, he and Kozue go to the Observatory and watch a laser show about Christmas. He gives her the cat brooch, which she loves, and she give him a ticket good for one free sweater, which she was unable to finish in time. She's so tired from working on the sweater that she falls asleep on Godai's shoulder. The next day is Christmas Eve, and Godai and Kyoko ride the train to Chachamaru. They meet Mitaka on the way and Kyoko steps off to talk to him, she doesn't notice Godai is staying on the train until it begins to leave. He tells her he has to pick up the rock and will meet her later. Kyoko feels guilty that he has to go get the rock all by himself. As Godai rides to meet Sakamoto, it begins to snow.moreless
