To Mend or Repair
|The Labyrinth, Part 3||To Mend or Repair||Mistaken for Good|
After learning that they can't have children, Eugene tries to keep Katrina distracted. Meanwhile, Barrett gives Priscilla a special honor -- reading the pledge of allegiance on the morning announcements.
Meanwhile, Barrett is the new 'Voice of the School' and he want Priscilla to help him on his first broadcast by reciting the pledge of allegiance to the rest of the school. On air, Priscilla messes up on the Pledge and Jay makes fun of her.
Eugene goes home to Katrina who is watching TV, he decides to go return some books to the library and signs Katrina and himself up for a Book Club.
Meanwhile, Barrett tries to come up with a plan to humiliate Jay and to make Priscilla feel better which actually backfires.
At the first meeting of the book club, Eugene and Katrina decide that the book club is not what they need and leave.
Later, Connie meets Priscilla in the library for the 'open mic' poetry reading.
Eugene goes to Whit's End to talk to Whit about how to help Katrina and Barrett talks to Priscilla about how he actually should have been helping her. Barrett buys Priscilla a milkshake and they sit down and talk - what Priscilla really wanted, and Eugene goes home to Katrina to just talk about all that has been happening.
