The Good Sport

Lakewood is determining the Athlete of the Year and Muffy is convinced that Francine will win. However at the ceremony, Jenna won the award instead of her. Later, she confronted Mr. Haney about it and there is a reason why Jenna won the Athlete of the Year award: she excels at sports Francine doesn't like. She discusses this with Muffy, who plans to make a petition to make Francine the Athlete of the Year.

Unfortunately, her signature is the only one on the petition. So Francine and her friends choose to give her a party, which flops. When Jenna sees the posters for the second party, she tells them to cease and she runs in the girls' restroom. Muffy goes to confront Jenna saying it was Francine who deserved to win that award but Jenna angrily and sadly admits that she understands that Francine should have won and sick that she is rubbing it in her face and runs out of the girls' restroom crying. Francine heard the whole thing and feel guilty and tried to give an apology, but Jenna ran off and when Muffy think she did a good job telling her off, Francine just tells her to stuff it much to Muffy's surprise.

That night, Francine sees Michelle Kwan on TV and saying how ice skating is dumb and how she can do it easy, then she has a dream that Michelle Kwan is teaching her to skate. Francie keep on falling and admits that skating is actually hard and it is not easy as it looks. The next day, she and Jenna forgive each other, finishing the episode.
