The one where Marie was in charge . . .
5 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was 8 years old when this episode first aired. I remember one scene really well. Marie was the starchy, straight-laced, by-the-book, nerdy -yet-devout daughter topped off with glasses, buttoned up shirts, and long skirts.

For the other sisters, it was easy to find boys interested in them at an all boys school. It wasn't so easy for Marie, so to soften Marie up for letting them have a party, the wilder, ditsier sisters find a guy to distract Marie.

This is where it gets predictable. Popular Boy and plain Nerd Girl meet under false pretenses(i.e. a bet, persuasion, a favor, geek outreach program, etc.). Nerd Girl falls hard for Popular Boy and can't believe what's happening to her. Popular Boy starts to see Nerd Girl for everything she is, not everything she's not. Tragedy strikes for the potential young lovers because the truth comes out about why they met. Eventually, Popular Boy pushes past the obstacle and Popular Boy and Nerd Girl end up together even if it IS just for a quick kiss in the attic bedroom she shares with several sisters with the open window as a backdrop with with observations about the moon and stars before the party is busted by the long absent parents.
