Episode Summary


Professor Fritz:
Mrs. Jenkins' students are making science projects to display at Hilltop School's open house and Fritz, the class inventor, is going to impress everyone with his rocket ship. When a test flight goes haywire in front of the entire class, Fritz feels humiliated and abandons his experiment. Timothy and Charles inadvertently suggest something that changes everything.

Two Tutu Friends:
Doris is inspired to take ballet lessons after watching Grace dance in front of the class. A growing friendship between the two girls comes to an abrupt end when Grace calls Doris a "blabbermouth" and Doris calls Grace a "cry baby". Both girls discover that dance class isn't as much fun without each others' friendship.
