The Meaning Of Life Lesson

"And now you've learned how important it is just to be yourself, right?" - Ginger Foutley 

Synopsis

Ginger helps a common geek, Hope Rogers, find confidence. Unfortunately, this confidence caused her to change her look and take over Courtney's position as the most popular girl in school. As all of Courtney's group has turned on her, Courtney becomes a hopeless wreck. Meanwhile Mrs. Gordon, tired of Carl's practical jokes, retires, upsetting him. Eventually he begs Mrs. Gordon to come back, and she agrees but she passes away shortly after. This episode was dedicated to the memory of Kathleen Freeman, the voice of Mrs. Gordon, who died of lung cancer at age 82.

Quotes 

Courtney: I was all, "I'm not your girlfriend, girlfriend". 

Hope: The name's Hope. As in, sure hope your memory's not as bad as your manicure, Courtney.

Courtney: Popularity is a business, Ginger and I'm just protecting mama's investment.

Courtney: (talking to Ginger) How dare you! You've ruined my life by siding with that.. that.. Macie: Conniving vixen. Courtney: Conniving vixen. Thank you. Macie: Welcome.

Carl: (referring to his flowers) Aw, they're for real. Mrs. Gordon: So's a hernia but I don't want one of those either.

Mrs. Gordon: No one likes a kiss-up, Carl.

Ginger: I'd rather be nice than popular. Courtney: Only because you've never been popular. See ya. 

Courtney: Ginger, don't be silly. It's so much better being me.

Ginger: (sighs) Well, I'm glad at least we learned something. Dodie: I didn't. I still yearn to be popular.
