Cry Wolf is the eighth episode of the first season which was broadcast on January 14, 2001. And is one of the most well known episode of the series as it introduced the term "frizzy lizzies" (a slang term used to describe a female's unshaved legs).


During a routine fire drill, Dodie accidentally tells Miranda that Ginger isn't allowed to shave her legs. Miranda uses this as blackmail to get Ginger to do her homework and, of course, to stay away from Courtney. Meanwhile, Carl puts together an all-hair ensemble and becomes Wolf Boy. Miranda starts giving Ginger her homework and if that she didn’t do it she would tell Ginger‘s secret to everyone in the whole school. After being pushed around by Miranda for the last few days, The first attempt of getting rid of her leg hair, Ginger tried to shaving at her house but just as she’s about to have the razor touch her leg, Joann Bishop tells her that her mom called and that she wants her home.

The second time she tries getting rid of her leg hair by using her mom’s tweezers but it hurts and decided not to use them because she used them to pluck a tick off Carl. Then Dodie throws the tweezers out of Ginger’s bedroom window, shortly after Miranda comes over to make Ginger do her book report on “Call of the Wild”. The next day Dodie tries to wax Ginger’s legs but she screams after Dodie pulls the wax strips off and Lois asks her what was the noise about Ginger tells a little white lie that she just saw a spider.

At night, the girls convince Carl to get rid of the leg hair by shaving Ginger’s ankles so it wouldn’t be disobeying her mom’s rule. Carl uses a dog grooming razor to shave Ginger’s leg hair and is amazed that Carl was able to do a great job. The next day in homeroom, Miranda tells Ginger that she wants Ginger to do her math problems for her but she shows her her hairless ankle when she’s wearing a pair of clam digger capris and lets Ginger off the hook but tries to get Dodie to do her homework and Ginger stands up to her and Miranda sits at her desk. Courtney comes in the classroom and compliments Ginger on her clam digger capris, Ginger thanks her for the compliment and Courtney tells her that Ginger had three more days of the cold shoulder treatment but the rule can be broken if Courtney gives a fashion compliment. Ginger is relieved and waits for class to start.
