Head Over Heels
Miranda has fallen for a guy named Ryan and wants Lizzieís help in talking with him. Meanwhile Matt and Gordo start hanging out together and doing male-bonding things.
Things donít go well for Lizzie and Miranda, though, especially when Ryan shows that itís Lizzie heís interested in and not Miranda, and Miranda finds out.
Lizzie goes on her date but brings Miranda along and they both find out that Ryan is not really as great a guy as they thought he was.
Itís a good story except that, again, Matt demonstrates a strong tendency towards juvenile delinquency as he usually does.
This story is based on episode 25, The Courtship of Miranda Sanchez.
Miranda has gotten the lead in a school play and Lizzie, writing for the school newspaper, comes to the performance and later writes a review. The problem is that Mirandaís acting was beyond terrible and she takes offense when Lizzie does not give her a positive review in the paper.
Matt, meanwhile, is trying to come up with money to buy walkie-talkies so he decides to hold a garage sale.
Miranda gets really mad at Lizzie for the review and eventually Gordo gives her the tape he made of the play and the review Lizzie wrote and asks her to watch the tape then read the review.
Miranda finally realizes sheís not cut out to be an actress, and Lizzie realizes that printing the truth is important.
This story is based on episode 13: Random Acts of Miranda.
