Oh yes, Christina Applegate shines in this episode as she is punished for vandalizing the school bus for the school's tap dance club. In this episode, her principal punishes her by making her take tap dancing lessons. When Al goes to talk and reason with her, Kelly is forced to perform the dance recital. She confesses that she is afraid that the good-looking janitor and Fame alum won't like her after he finds out that she's in the tap dance club. Steve helps out by tap dancing and helping Kelly out. In the meantime, Al is complaining that his socks are going missing and don't match. He thinks the wives are all up to something thanks to Oprah Winfrey or Phil Donahue. The scene at the recital is really priceless because of what Kelly does. She can dance very well maybe not just tap.
