Synopsis: When she blows a Misfit television appearance
by announcing the wrong band, Pizzazz and Jetta begin to tease Roxy about
not being able to read. As a result Roxy quits the band, vowing to change
her luck, but not sure how to go about it. Then she finds a lottery ticket
and wins a million dollars, allowing her to 'leave the Misfits behind forever'.
Jetta and Stormer track her to the House of Glamour where she has a makeover,
and discover she is going home to Philadelphia to show everyone she isn't
a nothing after all.
Meanwhile, Jem and the Holograms are on their Rock Out Illiteracy tour
and just happen (!!) to be in Philadelphia when Roxy arrives. Annoyed that
they have stolen her thunder, Roxy enlists the help of some old friends
to set up her own street festival, but signing contracts without knowing
what they say almost brings her to grief. It is only with Jem's help that
she straightens things out, but by the time everyone is paid she has no
money left. It is here that BaNee gives her a first reader book, and though
she is persuaded to come back to the Misfits she keeps the book. At the
end she is secretly trying to learn to read, despite her bravado when Jetta
walks in on her. Kinda cute, this episode - but then I'm a fan of Roxy anyway
Songs: Open a Book (Jem and the Holograms - repeated song), I'm
Gonna Change (Roxy), Gimme Gimme Gimme (The Misfits - repeated song but
with Roxy on vocals. Kinda.)
