charlene and jimmy challenge each other to a game of chess. the winner? jimmy, actually, despite the fact that his sister has the genius trait. the next day, she practices chess after school before she needs to go to work. jimmy, too, practices chess at the park nearby after he finishes his homework. while there, he gets the idea in his head to stay out past curfew. this leads him to get caught by the police and kathy gets a wakeup call at 2am to pick him up.
jimbo stops by for another visit. apprently it’s boring being dead, but you have a lot of time to get reading done. also, jimmy and charlene change their appearance after the family buys a mirror (and i figure out that that is the secret to changing their hairstyles and makeup…).
