Wish Upon A Star

Synopsis: Handsome, considerate high-school jock Kyle Harding is the only taste the Wheaton sisters share. Tall, fashionable, popular airhead big sister is dating him, but fails to truly appreciate the young gentleman, let alone contemplate a serious relationship. Nerdy kid sister Haley hates the waste and expresses her envy by thoughtlessly wishing at a 'shooting star' (comet) to be Alexia. To their stupor, that happens the next morning. Forced to live each-other's lives, but unable to do it well by the other's standards, the sisters soon hate each-other even more and deliberately screw up. Gradually, they realize they would only both lose out, learn to appreciate the other's values and reconsider their own. Remain the matters of obviously utterly confused Kyle, and new neighbor boy Simon, whose no longer secret crush on Haley was confounded by Alexia.

Alex!

Alexia Wheaton!

Let's get a move on!

Man, oh, man.

Chill, you vagrant. I'm coming!

Ben, Nan, later.

We can't let her go out

in public like that, Ben. Alex!

Stop!

Whoa!

What's wrong with you,

besides the obvious?

- We're gonna be late again.

- Oh, pop a Midol.

Who said anything about being late?

I've had it.

I am going to clean out her closet.

And from now on, it's cardigan sweaters

and monogrammed blouses.

And I don't think that it's healthy

that she call me Nan.

It shows a total disregard

for our family hierarchy.

Nan, listen.

Have you noticed that when you insist

that Alex calls you Mom...

the greater pleasure she gets

from calling you Nan?

And when we object

to her provocative clothing...

she just finds something

more provocative to wear the next day.

And when we encourage the girls

to get along...

the more out of hand

their sibling rivalry gets.

What have our patients

been telling us all these years?

That their parents

have ruined their lives.

Exactly. Now...

I think the only way

these girls are gonna get along...

show us some respect

and bring harmony to this household...

is for you and I

to stop interfering.

There'll be no reason for them to rebel

against our rules and demands...

because...

there won't be any.

- Morning, Hayley.

- Hi.

Oh, excellent shirt, Aly. Wow.

That's three days in a row, Hayley.

If it happens again, I'm going

to start deducting from your grade.

It won't.

All right.

Now tomorrow's quiz will require...

slide identification

of the following constellations...

Canis Majorus, Leo...

Taurus...

That rhymes.

Cool shorts, guys.

Doctor's orders.

He said I had to sit out again.

What do you think

they're talking about right now?

Etruscan art.

- How should I know?

- It's your sister.

Sabrina, is that stubble?

I swear, I shaved this morning.

I must have just missed a spot.

So, Alex,

what's the limit on the festival again?

No limit.

Hello, beautiful.

How you doing?

All right. Test scores are in.

Time to face the music.

Mr. Gerard.

You need to make that up with me.

Very nice.

Barely adequate.

But Hayley here. Very nice.

It's nice to see someone coming out

smelling like a rose.

Lose the gum, if you would.

So, any questions

about grades, homework?

Life, in general?

- Mr. Watson?

- Yes, Alexia.

Can I go to the ladies' room, please?

What difference does it make?

Oh, I think it's so admirable

that you attended the police academy.

You see, it's always been a dream

of mine to go into law enforcement.

But my parents, whom, by the way, think

you're a wonderful administrator...

want me to get a degree first,

like you.

I never knew anyone looked to me

as a role model.

Oh, since the ninth grade!

But in order for me

to follow in your path...

I have to start

by getting into Felder first...

and, well,

I was thinking that you...

being a distinguished principal

and all...

might like to write

a recommendation for me.

And what might the recommendation say?

Dear Admissions Committee...

though Alexia Wheaton is in...

the bottom half of her class...

she dresses well.

Oh! So you'll consider it.

Where's the dirt?

She hasn't written in two weeks.

Think she's onto us?

Do you think they do it?

Well, I don't have

any documented evidence, but...

Man, they are so in love.

We better evacuate.

- There you are, Kyle.

- Thanks, Mrs. Wheaton.

And do you have

enough salad there, Caitlin?

Yes, thanks.

You've got to be kidding.

- We have guests.

- I don't mind.

- I don't mind.

- Part of her experiment.

You know, I made the fuel
