Reggie loves chocolate. Sadly for him, this leads to a major cavity issue, and his dentist is telling him it's all the chocolate he eats. Interestingly, this storyline involves his friends confronting him about his 'chocolate addiction' which was a very original way to spin teaching kids about addictions. Rather than using the same old method of "Drugs are bad", the show approaches the concept with a metaphor a subtle suggestion.
Generally any show that's aimed at younger audiences feels obligated to tell the "Don't do drugs" episode. They are preachy and don't really have success in steering kids clear of drugs. This is why sending the message with a metaphor was such a unique idea.
The episode also deals with fame when Todd has a report written about him for "Headline America", but Todd has the jitters. Jess meanwhile is very eager to be on TV and Todd has to ask her sister, Liz, for assistance with the whole thing.
