[Jane finishing up the legend of the House of Bad Grades in Lawndale]
Scoff if you will, but every person who lived in that house ended up working at the local burger place. What do you say to that?

This is an odd episode as within the plot are three different "Twilight Zone"-like stories--all goofy horror tales.
Stacey tells the Fashion Club girls the story of the "Rattling Girl". In this tale, the main character looks like Sandi and is a girl fixated on losing weight. She gets skinnier and skinnier until she is gaunt and scary looking--and to shallow idiots, this is a good thing! But, as she gets even thinner an unforeseen problem occurs--the girl is so skinny that she is nothing but bones and she rattles as she walks--scaring everyone. She becomes a social outcast. Her rattling bones sound all the time and cause everyone to lose sleep and become ugly due to stress.
The next story is told by Trent. It's about a shop teacher that looks like Mr. DeMartino. He eventually grinds his teeth down so much due to stress that he decides to give himself metal teeth--which have the horrible side effect of picking up bad pop music--making him like a walking radio! The last tale is told by Jane and its characters look like the Morgendorffers. they live in the 1950s and build a bomb shelter. However, as time and the fear of nuclear annihilation passes, they forget about the shelter. Their oldest daughter (played by Daria) sees this place as a great place to fill out her college applications. But she is accidentally locked in and the family seems to forget that she existed. So, the spirit of this trapped girl spends her time irritating everyone so they'll never graduate and be stuck in Lawndale forever.
While none of these stories are the least bit scary, they are cute and funny. Also, it is a nice change of pace. As for my oldest daughter, it's one of her favorite shows--I wasn't quite as impressed but it was pretty good.
