Marcia is in seventh heaven when the school's star football player, Doug Simpson, asks her out for a date for this Saturday. After she accepts, she remembers that she already has a date for Saturday night with a nice but somewhat plain boy named Charley, who adores her. As she would rather go out with Doug, she uses the advice given to her by Greg. He says that to get out of a date, she should use the non-committal statement, "something suddenly came up", which is what she tells a dejected but understanding Charley. She's happy that she managed not to hurt Charley and keep her date with Doug, but she still feels terrible doing it. A few days before the date, Marcia gets hit in the face by an errant football, bruising and swelling her nose. Marcia tries to avoid Doug before Saturday, but if she does see him, she hopes he will be understanding of her less than perfect looks and that she won't hear the words "something suddenly came up" from him. Meanwhile, Mike and Carol can't agree on which wallpaper to use for their bedroom.- Written by Huggo
Remember the time when Marcia cried out, "Ooh, my nose!"? It all began when Marcia set up a dance date with nice guy Charley, then dumped him for school hunk Doug Simpson (with the line "Something suddenly came up"). Then, Peter fires an errant pass, which hits Marcia flush in the face, causing her to utter her famous line. But a swollen nose is the least of Marcia's concerns; what will she tell Doug ... and Charley?- Written by Brian Rathjen <email@example.com>
