Storyline

Maggie continually feigns illness to get out of gym class, this term the class focusing on gymnastics with tough Mrs. Stone of who Maggie is scared. Fran encourages Maggie to face her fears, but supports Maggie in feigning illness since this situation reminds Fran and Val of their high school gymnastics teacher, Miss Wickervich, and the fear they felt. Little does Fran realize that Mrs. Stone and Miss Wickervich are one and the same. Mrs. Stone recognizes Fran as the wimpy gym student she was. Because of Maggie's association with Fran, Mrs. Stone threatens to fail Maggie in gym if she does not perform well in the midterm exam the following week. Maggie is ill prepared, and Fran's coaching for the midterm amuses Mrs. Stone. But Maggie and Fran face Mrs. Stone and the exam with determination. Meanwhile, Maxwell is facing a similar problem when he hires Alan Beck to star in his latest show. Twenty years prior, Maxwell was in constant fear when he worked as Beck's assistant.
