Reluctantly, Dylan lets F-list Josh into her A-list world, and is shocked to realize that sometimes nerds can be pretty cool. But when Dylan's so-called prince charming of a boyfriend dumps her flat, her life and her social status comes to a crashing halt.

It's an honor to announce

this year's Blossom Queen winner.

The most important crown

that any girl can ever wear.

Dylan Schoenfield.




- Dylan!

- Yes, Principal Guthrie?

The Blossom Queen

campaign application.

- Oh.

- I need your signature.

Oh, thanks.

Ahem. Next.

This year's going to

be trs fantastiqu.

- Know why?

- Why?

Because once

I'm crowned Blossom Queen,

I will be the most popular girl

at Woodlands Academy ever.

Class is downstairs.

Drama Club.

Easy votes, they like my dramatic flair.

Oh, the very shirt

I introduced last semester.

Followers. Easy votes.

Film Club nerds.

- You're like a movie star to them.

- Totes.

Indie rock wannabes.

What's with the guitars, people?

This isn't a campfire.

I can't believe you used

to be friends with Amy Loubalu.

Alas, it's true.

Until I traded up to you two.


I took your suggestion

and got my hair cut into a bob.

Definitely cuted up.

See? People know I care.

Easy vote.

But what about Nicole Paterson?

She's major competition.

Lola and Hannah see me

as their leader

and a leader

should never show weakness.

That would be trs mauvais.

That's French for "ew."

What and ever.

A good candidate likes competish.

If I ran for Blossom Queen unopposed

and won, boring.

And who has the number one seat

on The Ramp?

Dude, hey.

Oh, look, Asher's holding it for me.

Oh. So sweet.

Oh, my.


You.. You geek!

This is designer!

No, it's tuna noodle casserole.

You are so gross.

Gross is just one syllable.

I can't believe that popular people like me

are forced

to share the same air

as nerd herders like you.


Forced to share the same air as me?

Okay, you wear so much perfume,

you need a gas mask just to survive.


Is this yesterday's fettuccine Alfredo

- recycled?

- No paparazzi.


So sweet.

Oh, my. Oh!

You... You geek!

This is designer!

No, it's tuna noodle casserole.

You are so gross.

Gross is just one syllable.


That's classic.

- Look what you did to my friends.

- But I didn't...

I can't believe that popular people like me

are forced

to share the same air

as nerd herders like you.

- Ugh!

- I prefer the term "film geek."


They must practice that.

Casablanca. Curtiz is the director.

It also stars Ingrid Bergman, Peter Lorre

and Claude Rains.

As Bogart's best film? I fully disagree.

The African Queen with Katharine

Hepburn, directed by John Huston.

I mean, it's miraculous.

I mean, it's unbelievable. Hi.

Oh, look. Film Club president

finally decided to show up.

Sorry, guys.

I got stuck in traffic on the diva freeway.

- Where's your lunch?

- Dylan Schoenfield's wearing it.

Yeah, my food went where no mere mortal

has ever gone before.

The Ramp.

You need a passport to go in there.

Passport? You need a robot army.

With level 83 "Dragon Slayer" skills.

Okay, guys, seriously,

it's a whole other alien world.

A mystery species.

We'll never fully understand the Populars

and the way their strange vortex works.

Okay, what are you inventing now?

Artificial Intelligence chess.

Hey, Amy.

That's a cool guitar case.

Never gonna happen, friend.

Thanks for the support, pal.

Calculate this, Josh.

You've been crushing on Amy Loubalu

since third grade.

We're juniors.

That's approximately 2,268 school days,

minus summer breaks,

that you could have asked her out

and haven't.

I'd go out with you.

Guys, I don't have time for dating,


The Puget Sound Film Festival

is only six weeks away.

And he's our school's best shot at total

domination of the city's student film scene.

- You better win.

- No. I gotta win.

Okay, first prize is a summer

at a Hollywood film camp in Los Angeles.

All right, I wanna make

this groundbreaking documentary

that truly changes the bar.

- You know, a film that establishes me

I love you.

As the next cinematic genius.

So, what's the documentary about?

No idea.

You have no idea.

So wanna go out with me?

- What...?

- No.

Come in.

Mr. F.?

Oh, Josh.

Brought my application.

My favorite student and great, great.

I like this.

I can't wait to see what my star student

has come up with, huh?

It's a documentary about the evolution

of robot voices

in the science-fiction genre?

Yeah. You know how no two robots

ever sound the same in any sci-fi movie?

You know, you have your,

"I am a robot."

Then you have these futuristic, like:

Josh, your artistic vision

is robot voices?

Yeah. Mr. F., I'm struggling here.

I... I've got all these great ideas,

but none of them are good enough.

You really would like to win that trip

to Hollywood film camp, huh?

More than anything.

Then challenge yourself, Josh.

Choose a documentary subject matter

where you stretch your limits.

Explore new territory, discover the truth.

How about, instead of robots,

a human subject?

A human.

Okay, so challenging, truthful,

but human.

- Got it.

- Right.

Now, I will need a real proposal

by tomorrow.

Otherwise, I will have to give

our school's slot to another student.


No, I am not taking a dollar less

than listing price.

Well, that's great.

I can have the paperwork sent right over.

Great. Talk to you soon.

Well, sweetie, what do you think?

Do we turn this place

into a Sparkles Cupcakes

or Accessories Barn?

Dad, anyone who buys their accessories

in a barn is totes tragique.

I vote for cupcakes,

gives it more of a glam factor.

And that is why you're my top advisor.

You know what? I am gonna have to head

back to the office for a late meeting.


Oh, I need to borrow your marketing team.

Marketing team? Why?

Blossom Queen. It's essential.

I need signs, brochures, headshots.

Oh, well, absolutely not.

But Nicole Paterson

has the whole varsity

and JV football team

making posters for her campaign.

Yes, and you have ingenuity.

If you wanna win,

you need to do this on your own.

You're a smart girl.

Gotta pull yourself up

by your bootstraps.

Yes, this is Alan.


What does that even mean?

Um, hello, boots have zippers.

I should know, I tried on 17 pairs

at Shoes Unlimited last week

and none of the 16 pairs I bought

had straps.

Bad reception?

Yeah, I, well...

Dude, seriously, this is not refundable.

Tell you what, here's 20 percent off

on your next phone.


It's imported leather.

Imported from where?

Somewhere foreign

with lots of shipping costs, duh?

Yeah, probably Italy, duh?


Bee. Oh, my gosh, a bee.

Bee. Bee. Oh!

Oh, no. Oh, my God.

Stop. Oh, my gosh.

Oh, my.

Oh! Oh, no. Oh, my gosh.

My purse.

Help. Somebody help.

Someone turn the fountain off.


Help. Help me, my purse. Ah!

It's a Serge Sanchez.

Will somebody help me?

Someone turn the fountain off.

Mr. Farley said that my movie subject

should be human.

Dylan Schoenfield's human.

Sort of.

She's definitely a challenge.

Big challenge.

Someone turn off the fountain, now.

Why aren't they listening to me?

Give me your phone.
