Dorothy Jane, a freshman, looks forward to her first high school cotillion, despite not having a dress or a date. Hoping Riley will ask her out, she keeps rejecting all date offers. Millicent forces her to go out with the geeky Kirby Scroggins. She reluctantly buys a dress at the salvation army and goes to the dance. There, her snobby classmate Dreama reveals that she is wearing a dress from the salvation army. Riley, who is at the dance as well, notices that she feels humiliated and tries to help her by dancing with her. Meanwhile, Millicent's mother-in-law Bootsie tries to find out more on the letters Hodgers is receiving. He reveals that after the passing of his wife, he had a short-lived fling with Molly, who now refuses to answer his letters. Written by
