The Meaning of Life Lesson
"Would you ever do something like this to a friend, no matter how hurt or upset you were?" - Ginger Foutley
Ginger returns from Avalanche Arts Academy. When she does, Dodie and Macie feel like they've been bumped down a spot as Ginger seems preoccupied with her new boyfriend, Darren. Mipsy and Miranda are also unhappy with the situation because now Ginger ignores them, making it impossible for them to embarrass her. They talk Dodie and Macie into helping them break-up Ginger and Darren by tricking Darren into thinking Ginger is cheating on him with a guy from Avalanche Arts Academy. Ginger eventually finds out about the plot, thanks to Courtney, who tricks Miranda, Mipsy, Dodie, and Macie into confessing the plot to her over the phone much to the shock of all four of them. Meanwhile, Noelle loses Carl to Polly Shuster in a bet. For an entire weekend, Carl has to play "Parrot World" with Polly. Blake takes pictures of Carl actually enjoying the game and plans to use them for blackmail.
As the episode ends we see Ginger's answering machine playing Ginger's voice message telling the caller to leave a message for her after the beep. The person calling her is Dodie: Ginger, are you there? (sniffs) Ginger, please pick up! Look I know you don't wanna talk to me right now and I don't blame you but have so many things I wanna say to you. Starting with...I am so sorry. Episode ends.

Courtney: (talking about Ginger) When I found her, her parka was red and her lips were blue. I had to think quickly. Not only was she in danger, but it was a major fashion emergency.
Courtney: Cherry preserves? Ooh, double drat.
Courtney: Oh, why do they make Children's Aspirin so very difficult for the small children to open?
Noelle: But you like nuts, don't you Carl? Carl: Some nuts, not all. Noelle: Macadamia nuts? Carl: They're alright.
