Episode Summary

Laurie is chosen to be campaign manager for Phyllis Goldberg, who is a candidate for the school presidency. Unfortunately, Phyllis, an intelligent but very timid girl, will have to compete for this chosen position with Keith, who is without a doubt the more popular of the two. Overly assured that he will win because of his personal charm and magnetism, Keith is rather surprised to learn from Danny, the official pollster, that although he is far ahead, his strongest support comes from the students to whom he spoke during music and woodshop. This is significant, for these students could not really hear his speech, and judged him solely on his popularity. Keith's lack of awareness of school problems becomes quite evident when Phyllis challenges him to a debate, after which Danny informs him that the school is equally divided between the two candidates. Keith seriously considers dropping out of the race because he is afraid of losing. Instead, he throws his support to the Goldberg camp by telling students that Phyllis' qualifications are far superior to his, which he sincerely believes. But Keith has far underestimated his own popularity, for he still manages to win the election. Phyllis is a good sport about losing, and is satisfied with having made so many new friends during the campaign.moreless

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • If you take a good look at which direction the door opens up in this episode, you will notice that it opens up on the left side. Because you will see that when Reuben is trying to fix the door knob, it's on the right side of the door. In all of the other episodes, the door knob is on the left side of the door, so that when they open the door, it opens up on the right side.
