On their first day in junior high, Vicki becomes a hall monitor and Jamie tries to avoid Harriet for a dance while vying for a class fox. Meanwhile, Ted prepares to host a cybernetics conference.
An aimless boy-chasing episode (Christie's directorial debut) that's most
notable for Ted's explanation of how Vicki “grows” via the
auto-extending telescopic joints of her titanium skeleton.
Notable: First reference to Vicki's myogel musculature.
Marcia Wallace is back in the classroom, so to speak, as Bart Simpson's teacher, Edna Krabappel.
