  • Jan takes this popularity thing a little too far.

    I liked this episode, don't get me wrong, its just I hated how Jan acted to get elected. She makes all the promises that are so obvious she won't keep, and then she takes advantage of other people to help her get elected. Just like she promised that one guy that Greg would help him in math without asking Greg. She promised Peter and Bobby loans but never paid them. She promised to iron some of Marsha's clothes but she never ironed them. She promised to help Cindy write her book report, but she didn't. She promised her other friend to babysit but she never did. That stings me so bad! I loved it after Marsha told her how the most popular boy in school wasn't going to the prom with her. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. And if I were Peter, I wouldn't of gone to the dance with my sister, especially one who never paid me back after I helped her get elected as Most Popular Girl in school. The episode was great.moreless
