Susan sits next to Penelope, and notices that she is wearing lipstick. Susan tells her that she thinks it looks great. Susan tells Penelope that she loves make-up, because she likes making the best of what she has, a nice looking face. Penelope says she doesn't have a nice face, a beautiful one . . . Susan knows what Penelope is thinking, if she would diet she would be a knockout. Penelope says that wasn't what she was thinking. Susan says she is a minority then, because almost everyone she's ever met has told her that she'd look great, if she wasn't so large. Later they talk about Kevin, and Susan thinks Penelope might have a crush on Kevin. Penelope says she just wants to be his friend, would that bother her? Susan says she can be whatever she wants to be to or with Kevin, but it would bother her if she was just using her to get to Kevin. To get on Susan's good side, Penelope tells her a secret she's learned. She says that Belle and Shawn have some sort of treasure map, and plan on going out on their own and looking for it.

Mimi says Jan wanted to get revenge on Chloe, and she talked her into helping her. Belle asks Mimi why she got involved in this? Mimi says because of the shampoo glue-do from hell. Mimi says it all boils down to the fact that she likes Chloe more than her, even Jan can see it. Mimi says Chloe was becoming popular, and hanging out with her all the time, and she was left with no friends. Mimi tells Belle that she is an outcast now, so she should probably go away before she is seen with her. Belle tells Mimi that she is being selfish trying to deprive her of their friendship.
