Episode Summary

Wonder Twins Activate

A minor car accident outside the school causes mixed reactions from the media studies' students. The twins video the aftermath of a car accident outside the school. They see the video as a way to make fast money on TV's Funniest Home Video. Ross has his sights set on bigger fish – a new series called Funniest Home Car Crashes. For Sophie it is all too close to home – bringing back the bad memories of the accident that killed her father and left her in a wheelchair. It is up to Sophie to get the message across. There is a car accident outside the school gate when the twins are working with the video camera. They see this is a great joke and begin taping the drivers arguing. No amount of cajoling by the drivers and the other students will make them stop. As the drivers argue the twins see their video becoming a moneymaking enterprise. They believe they can win the major prize on TV's funniest home video show. When Ross hears of their plans he thinks they are not aiming high enough. Here is a big chance to sell the idea for a television series – Funniest Home Car Crashes. The twins' video causes a lot of dissension in the class and they sit down to discuss their views on camera. But Sophie doesn't want to talk about it. How would they understand that a car crash killed her father and left her in a wheelchair? Mr Long convinces Sophie to try and get her point across. Once he understands the whole story, Ross has a change of heart and can't believe how uncaring and thoughtless he had been. But the twins will never see the error of their ways – even when the tape is confiscated as evidence. Oscar turns to the love and peace values of the hippies as a way of thwarting the twins – but it doesn't last.
