Episode Summary

EDIT
Vanessa, Janet and Kara record a music video of "The Loco-Motion" at a local store. They name themselves The Lipsticks and plan to re-record the video for entry in a contest at a television station. The winning group could receive a record contract. The girls realize that they dance well but are not great singers. They sign up for vocal lessons, but become bored when the teacher puts them through a series of exercises instead of letting them dive into the song. They decide that they can win on their dance moves and costuming and just have their voices fixed in the studio. They perform for Cliff and Clair, who are horrified when Vanessa comes downstairs in a neon sports bra and lycra shorts. Clair also dislikes Kara and Janet's outfits, and thinks their dance moves are too suggestive. She discovers that Vanessa stuffed her bra and goes on a very long rant. The girls later attend a performance by their teacher, Ms. Woods, and are very impressed. Cliff and Theo pick up Russell and Anna's mail while they are out of town. They learn that Russell won a sweepstakes, and Clair must take extreme measures to keep them from opening the envelope. Cliff has a major letdown when he finds that Russell has only won a toaster.moreless
