  • Ricky goes GA GA over the new girl at school

    10
    This eposode is the best of the first season. This is a showcase of Ricky Schroder's amazing Talent. You give him a script that involves him interacting with girls-he eats it up!



    When Ricky meets the new girl in school, he is stricken with puppy love. He can't think straight, has a hard time remembering his own name and has a hard time asking her to go to the movie at the mall with him.



    He decides to make the relationship pernament by giving his ID Bracelet to her. Be prepared for a real heartbreak. This is where Ricky Schrorder talent shines: His abilty to display all kinds of emotions without being over the top.



    I think there's an underlying message(Not Expressed but implied)here: Ricky is not normally a goofy kid-but in Sally's preesence-he's pretty goofy-and tries to act cool. this is not his personality-I think She was a bit put off by that. Just be yourself!



    Great Episode and is available on the first season DVDs.moreless
