Episode Guide

"Cats Don't Always Land On Their Feet"


"Harriet and Saki with Malik-belt"


This episode starts off with a new girl, Emily entering the mall. With one glance, all the boys fall in love with her. With all this attention and admiration, Saki feels that Emily could be a threat. Saki's best friend, Jadus, starts to hang out with Emily more often, which leads Saki to think that she actually is a threat. She complains to everyone that Emily is really a big threat, but Malik shoos that idea away because he secretly likes Emily as well. Mikey tries to hook up with Emily, though, his strategy failed. With the idea from Malik, Saki then sets up a cutness competition so she can outrule Emily, but Emily is the one who rules over Saki, and she's not even trying. The first challenge was a dress up contest. Emily wins that with an adorable Raggedy Ann Doll style. The second challenge is dating-wise. Emily's big and marveling eyes help win over the challenge and the boy's heart. The third challenge is a dance battle. Emily won this one with a small twirl and a leg slide. Lucas has low hopes for Saki because of many, many attempts, she ultimately fails at trying to win. Saki eventually catches up and wins the fourth challenge. Which was the singing contest. With a little respect and pride, Saki loses her suspicion of Emily and befriends her.


The subplot in this episode is Emily meeting a cute guy named Dan, and she develops a crush on him. He eventually admits his feelings to her after Saki and Emily become friends.
