Courtney and Miranda get into an argument in gym class and Courtney has Miranda exiled from the group. When Ginger sticks up for Miranda in front of everyone, Miranda feels that she owes Ginger and becomes her new best friend. However, Miranda becomes pushy, inconsiderate, and down right annoying to Ginger, Dodie, Macie, and Darren. Meanwhile, Hoodsey poses as a street urchin to help Mrs. Gripling win the election of president of the charity committee and her country club.

Miranda: (responding to Ginger) I never really hated you, just disliked you intensely. There's a big difference. Dodie: There is? 

Miranda: (talking to Ginger) You're so selfish. So should we go to your place after school? They're spraying for silver fish at mine. 

Miranda: (talking to Ginger on the phone) Oh. Then why don't you just tell me about your hopes and dreams? That ought to put me out.

Courtney: Miranda, might I remind you that I have a reputation as a winner to maintain? And when the sea rises, so do all the little boats. 

Miranda: I'm picking Ginger, so tough luck. Courtney: (gasps) I think you meant that.

Winston: May I? Claire: Please. That way I'll have someone to thank when I win. Besides myself, that is.
