Episode Summary

EDIT
Race for Kyoko! Skating Rink is Love's Battleground
AIRED:
Kyoko, Mrs. Ichinose, Kentaro and Ikuko plan a trip to a skating rink with Godai and Mitaka tagging along. The problems begin almost instantly when the rental van seating arrangement leaves Mitaka and Godai sitting up front together with Mitaka driving and Godai in charge of the tape deck. On the way, Ikuko asks Godai to teach her how to skate once they arrive, but he modestly refuses, telling her that Mitaka would be a much better coach. Mitaka also refuses and passes the task back to Godai. Once they arrive everyone learns why. Neither Mitaka nor Godai have a clue about how to skate. They begin stumbling all over the rink, begging Kyoko to help them and refusing the help of Mrs. Ichinose. Kyoko reluctantly agrees to help, when suddenly Akemi and Yotsuya arrive to cause problems for Godai. Soon Godai is laid out on the ice with Yotsuya refusing to let anyone help him, in hopes of fostering a sense of independance in him. Ikuko finally offers Godai some comfort, which enrages Kentaro, who quickly follows Godai's lead and pretends to hurt himself. Soon, a worn out Kyoko says she needs to spend some time with the children and passes Mitaka and Godai onto Mrs. Ichinose. But Mitaka and Godai persist and make a deal with one another. A race to the Manager with the winner getting private lessons from her without interference from the loser. Later that day, both Mitaka and Godai have mastered skating, but are still not fast enough to catch Kyoko.moreless
