Main Plot

Holly J. and Jane start a babysitting business and make loads of cash. They spark up a friendship and reveal secrets. Holly J. says she likes Declan a little bit and Jane is shocked. Declan comes to Jane's house just a little while before Holly J. visits. Holly J. is in her car and witnesses the two kiss. She is shocked and confronts Jane the next day. Jane asks her why she likes the guys Jane likes. Holly J. is angry at Spinner for telling Jane, but is still angry at Jane.

Sub Plot

Meanwhile, Dave is trying to fit in. He gets in a fight with Bruce the Moose to become popular. Dave wants to be on the Anti-Grapevine, but Chantay refuses to put her cousin in the blog until he does something spontaneous. He then pees in a jug and pours the pee in Bruce's locker. He and Bruce decide to meet in the alley after school with the whole school spectating the fight. Bruce refuses to fight him, but he pulls out a balloon full of urine and throws it at Dave. He actually thinks that Dave was pretty gutsy in his prank. Dave achieves instant popularity and gets his wish. Chantay writes about him in her blog.
