Episode complete credited cast:


Jan has joined the school debating team, and wants to practice by debating anyone and everyone about anything in the lead up to her first big actual debate. Meanwhile, an excited Marcia got the highest score on the written examination in her drivers education class. Greg is incredulous to the fact that she even outscored all the guys. Because of what she considers his chauvinistic attitude, Marcia issues Greg a bet: that she will outscore him when she completes her drivers test, the road test which she still has to complete. Greg accepts. Although Jan is as well prepared for her debate as Marcia is as well prepared for her road test, there is still no accounting for the feeling of pressure, which they will need to overcome to succeed, and which can befall anyone.
