Pretty much based on "The Best Little Girl In The World"
27 May 2006 | by knotheaduscSee all my reviews

I remember this episode of "Fame" pretty well. The kids are all getting ready for their Hawaiian themed prom. Doris is in charge of setting up and is her typically bossy self.

Chris and Danny struggle to find prom dates.

Meanwhile, Holly responds to her parents' impending divorce by developing anorexia nervosa. If you've ever read Steven Levenkron's book "The Best Little Girl In The World", you'll probably recognize where "Fame's" writers got much of this episode's plot.

Look for a few decent musical numbers and some mild medical drama... and the nurse who reminds viewers that nurses still wore caps in the mid 1980s!
