Summary Edit

Lydia starts dating Pepper Ann's science teacher Mr. Carter, and it throws Pepper Ann's life into a turmoil. Mr. Carter suddenly starts acting nice, and everyone attributes it to the fact that he's dating Pepper Ann's mom.

Pepper Ann decides that she has to break them up, even if it means making up weird stories and acting rude. Meanwhile, Nicky and Stewart try a "trial period" of dating, and Milo and Gwen Mezzrow get crushes on each other on alternating days.


Cissy: Think your mom could, like, date Mr. Finky next? 'Cause I'm, like, failing Social Studies.
Milo: Stew. W. Dinger, you da man!
Milo: Gwen Mezzrow has a crush on me.

Pepper Ann: Again?

Milo: Yeah. I've been pumping iron.
Mr. Carter: I've been burned so many times, I should change my name to Bunsen.
Milo: I had a master plan once. I traded it to Dieter for some magic beans.


When Mr. Carter hands Pepper Ann the video about molecules, the door is open. When Pepper Ann asks if they're going to be out late, the door is shown closed. When Lydia says she'll be home by 10, the door is once again seen as being open.
