Emma decides it's time to move on in matters of the heart when she realizes she has feelings for Chris, until she finds out he has a girlfriend. Manny says she should go for it, but is Emma that type of girl? Spinner and Jimmy ask Marco to tutor them in math, and Spinner starts to think Marco likes him.
Emma wants to leave Sean and the past behind her, because she really has her eye on Chris. He's hot, smart, and knows what he wants. So, all Emma has to do is go for it, right? If only it were so easy. No such problems for Craig and Manny's new relationship -- that is, as long as Ashley doesn't find out...
- This episode is named after the song "Against All Odds" by Phil Collins.
- Emma begins to express romantic interest toward Chris Sharpe in this episode.
- Emma and Manny end their friendship, although they make up later in the season.
- Ever since sporting her new look in U Got the Look, Manny begins to frequently wear outfits with different colored thongs visible to the eye. In the outfit that she wore to the rave, she was wearing a bright pink thong.
- Marco reveals that he learned the Heimlich Maneuver in First Aid.
- Spinner thinks that Marco has "bad taste" because he is not attracted to him.
- At the rave, you can see Craig in the background. The scene then switches and Craig is now at home with Joey and Sydney. He then leaves, and goes to the rave.
