The great friend hunt is on. Frankie sets up a play date with a lonely young man named Gerald. She goes all out to make sure the boys have a good time together. Gerald says he had a blast. But then several days go by without so much as a phone call. Gerald's mom says her son's been sick. Frankie's pretty sure that's not true once she catches sight of the boy heading out of the house with a pair of rollerblades in hand.
Frankie decides to follow this liar mom and her suspiciously healthy son. Sadly, her suburban surveillance techniques need some work, as she crashes into liar mom's back bumper. Gerald's mom says the real reason they didn't call is because Frankie is a little scary. True, but it's a lovable kind of scary.
Frankie realizes she doesn't need to push the Gerald situation anymore when she sees that Brick's made a new friend all on his own. His name is Arlo and he likes kites. Fortunately, that's one of the subjects Brick covered in his Social Skills class!
