Plot Summary

Succumbing to peer pressure, Stephanie joins her classmates in making fun of Walter Berman, a classmate who wears glasses. Jesse tells Stephanie that she must apologize, but the apology makes Walter think Stephanie loves him. When Stephanie's friends come over to the house and see Stephanie talking to Walter, they make Stephanie a target for teasing, until Stephanie turns the tables on them, and shows them how it feels to be teased. That changes their behavior.

Meanwhile, at school, D.J. has been assigned to follow and observe a person for a day, then write an essay about that person. D.J. chooses Michelle to be the subject for the essay.

Also, on Wake Up, San FranciscoJoey fills in for Becky as Danny's co-host while she is out of town.


Danny: Joey, let’s go! We’re gonna be late!
Joey: Danny, what is the big rush?
Danny: Joey, you know I always leave the house at exactly 7:48. Now, thanks to you, I’m already two minutes late.
Joey: What are you talking about? We are right on time.
Danny: Joey... that’s a barometer.
Joey: Well, in that case, we’d better get moving. There’s a hurricane brewing.

Stephanie: He's not my boyfriend... but he is my friend.
Walter: Really? I'm your secret friend?
Stephanie: No, Walter. You're my "everybody can know" friend.
