Four Eyes
28 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mary's latest report card isn't so good. Charles knows she tries her best, so he excuses the grades (and no, we don't know how bad they were). It soon becomes clear that Mary is having trouble seeing. Charles has to take her to an eye doctor to get glasses, which they get the same day (interesting...).

However, Nellie is being her own nasty self and makes fun of Mary. Mary proceeds to hide her glasses and tells her father he doesn't have to give her another pair. She doesn't deserve them...

The best part of this is the kissing scene. I thought it pretty odd that Mary went INSIDE the school building to find some water for her flower when the water pump is out back...Of course, we all know Mary won't have to wear her glasses forever. There comes a time when she won't need them anymore. And if you aren't clear on what I'm talking about, just keep watching!
