Paige is planning a kickass rolling skating party. Ashley comes up and says that sounds cool. Too bad she's not invited. Paige is still fuming over Ashley's drug induced party last year. Now Ashley has no friends except for Terri, and Ashley wants all her non fat friends back.

Meanwhile, Spinner checks out the fine ass on the new science teacher.

Hey, time to get nerdy. Time for Toby's plotline. Guess what, Toby likes anime. Bet you never thought some as cool and suave as Toby would watch nerdy nonsensical Japanese cartoons, but he does. Toby is upset that no girls like that stupid shit...until he meets Kendra Mason, anime fan. Kendra is Asian, and has to be Asian, because there is no way that you can find such a thing as a girl who likes anime and is not Asian.

Toby immediately has a crush on Kendra, and for some reason, Kendra has a crush right back. It must be because Kendra is a grade below Toby, and she wants to date an older man. Joke's on Kendra: Toby isn't much of a man. The only person out there with a smaller penis is JT.

During lunch, the cool crowd sits at their cool bench to discuss Ashley. She's already apologized to everyone and gotten back with Jimmy, so Spinner, Jimmy and Hazel are ready to forgive her and be friends again. Paige is still holding out until Spinner orders her to be friends with Ashley again. Paige has no choice but to do what Spinner commands, lest she want to get dick slapped in the face.

The second best line of the whole episode goes to Spinner right here. After Jimmy mentions how he has been missing Ashley and getting back together with her felt like old times, Spinner says the following line in a real sexual way "Yeah totally like old times. Ash has been missing Jimmy too." Nobody understand why Spinner said that, but I got a laugh.

At the caf, Sean gives Ashley a dollar to help her cover lunch. Craig asks Sean if there is anything going on between them. Sean mentions that he got to third base with her party, and Craig suggests Sean should "go for it". Good fucking job, Craig. Way to give advice for a situation your character wasn't even created when it happened. This will just lead to trouble.

After school, Ashley is a happy as a clam now that her friends have taken her back. Sean telephones and asks her out. Ashley accepts and Terri has to point out that Ashley is back with Jimmy. Ashley retorts by saying, "One day when a guy likes you, you'll understand how this works." Ha! Terri's fat turns red and she makes the face of an angry Latina.

The next day at school, in the bathroom, Spinner asks Toby if he has heard of a girl named Kendra Mason. Spinner points out that Kendra is his adopted sister and if Toby goers near her, he'll turn Toby's glasses into contacts. Whoa, that's some excellent optometry skills Spinner has. Toby is so impressed he gets scared.

I will tell you what is really odd about this scene. Toby washes his hands first, and then he goes to the bathroom. Way to be a freak. I wouldn't want someone like that hanging around my sister either. Toby has pee hands now.

It's school picture day and stylin' Ashley is wearing a hot red top and sporting classic Ashley triangle shaped poof hair. Paige compliments here by saying she wouldn't mine tearing on Ashley's carpet. Ashley compliments her back saying she would like to have a lick of Paige's popcorn.

Terri mentions to Paige that Sean asked Ashley out. Paige suddenly becomes really offended by this for some reason. And you don't want to get on Paige's bad side, unless you want your editorial torn out of every issue of the school newspaper. Ashley's going to be in big trouble now.

Kendra and Toby plan to have lunch together. Things get all gooey-gooey mushy-mushy.

Everything is going lovingly until Toby looks up and sees that across the hall is Spinner, staring him down. JT. and Toby turn white and head for the hills.

Paige tells Jimmy about Ashley's date with Sean. Jimmy confronts Sean and tells him to stay away from Ashley, because Ashley is his girl. Sean snaps back that he'll ask Ashley about that Saturday night when he's using his ten inch to make her squeal.

Jimmy tries to fight Sean, but Sean throws him up against a locker. Jimmy needs to stop trying to pick fights with Sean because every time he does, Sean beats him up. That crazy negro.

Later on, Jimmy corners Ashley and calls her a slut. Looks like this relationship is over. I knew interracial couples never work. Golf shirt guy looks on and observes the drama.

Jimmy is more angry than he should be about this. But Ashley made the right choice because I bet that Sean's dick is way bigger than Jimmy's, which is impressive since Jimmy is black. But we must consider that Sean is just a smaller version of Spinner, after all.

Ashley tries to join Paige and Hazel at lunch but Paige totally denies her, preferring to have her backpack sit with them at lunch instead of Ashley. Paige can disobey Spinner's commands to be friends with Ashley, because Spinner is too busy at the moment skipping class to stalk Kendra and Toby. Ashley is shooed away.

Ashley has gained back her friends and then lost them again in a 24 hour span. That's cold.

Kendra corners Toby and demands to know why he stood her up for lunch. Toby can't speak, he's too afraid because, behind Kendra, he can see some blinds slowly open up and there is Spinner-watching him. God fucking damn, that's such an awesome scene. Kendra realizes Toby is afraid of Spinner so she punches Toby in the neck and storms off.

Sean asks Ashley if they are still on for the weekend, but Ashley waffles, asking to postpone the date. Sean punches Ashley in the neck and storms off. Now Ashley sinks down to the floor and at the bottom Ellie, another of season 2's new faces, and she'll be sure to disappoint. Ellie is the Goth character on the show. Somehow, she manages to be even lamer and more annoying that a typical Goth.

Meanwhile, Toby works up the courage confront Spinner. Spinner is impressed that someone as geeky as Toby is willing to stand up him for love, so instead of killing him right there (as he's done to other boys who have pursued Kendra) Spinner allows Toby to date his sister, on the condition that if Toby ever hurts her, Spinner will rip out Toby's bowels and eat them for breakfast. And Spinner is dead serious about this.

Kendra then tells Toby if he ever hurts her, she'll rip out his bowels herself. Whoa. We know who is going to wear the pants in that couple. That's the best line of the episode. Kendra then orders Toby to go with her to get ice cream.

In line for pictures, Ashley is alone, while Paige and Hazel mercilessly mock her sweatshirt. Terri enters the room and is torn over who to join, but then Paige offers her a cheeseburger. Now Ashley has even less friends than when this episode started.

That's karma for you. It's a karma chameleon.

Rating: A+
Talk about an awesome Spinner episode. I liked how he skipped class to stalk his sister and protect her from Toby.

Intensity Level: 44% Intense
It would be 100% Intense if Kendra actually did rip out Toby's bowels.
