  • Val tries to be more spontaneous by surprising Jeff. However, she finds herself in an awkward situation with his mother.

    Val sometimes drives me nuts. She's always so orderly and organized, and if something doesn't go her way, she freaks out and nearly has a heart attack. Jeff tells her she needs to be more spontaneous, so she tries to change. She dresses up as a cheerleader and hides in his room. When he gets home, she does an embarrassing cheer, and then sees his mother. Val was really upset, but she apparently had no need to be. Jeff's mother liked the idea, and likes Val. She asks to go out with her and Holly that night to do more fun and spontaneous activities. They go, but it gets out of hand when Jeff's mom announces that she is going to leave Jeff's father.moreless
  • Val goes dirty!

    I love this episode because Val listens to Jeff to be spontaneous! Then she dresses in her cheer leading outfit & shows her stuff. This definitely had plot development, because you would of never expected Jeff's mom, thinking Val is wild, making her divorce Jeff's father, I'm not sure of that was the A plot or B plot, but I like the "other" plot a little bit better. Holly & her iBop, treating it like a baby, what made Holly really shallow is giving Gary a broken iBop, but she got what she deserved because it wasn't broken at all, now she has to share it. My favorite part is when there at the restaurant. Opah!moreless
  • It was alright.

    Holly wins an iBop and Gary wants it. He convinces her to give it to him, but when she actually listens to it, she doesn't want to give it up. They get into a little disagreement. Meanwhile, Jeff says that Val should be more spontaneous. She takes his advice and shows up at his place dressed as a cheerleader. Jeff's mom is also there, so Val is mortified. Jeff's mom goes out with Val and Holly. She decides to leave Jeff's father.

    This episode was good! I recognized Nancy as Linda, Jeff's mom. The iPod spoof was kind of funny. This episode gets an 8.0 out of 10!moreless
