Jan's first crush on classmate Clark Tyson is unrequited. Devastated, she makes up an imaginary boyfriend named George Glass to let everyone know that she is special.

Summary

When her crush on classmate Clark Tyson goes unrequited, Jan makes up an imaginary boyfriend named George Glass. After learning the truth, Carol talks to Clark about Jan, and learns that it's her tomboyish appearance and not her freckles that makes Clark refer to her as a guy instead of a girl.

Storyline

Jan has invited Clark Tyson over to help her with her homework. She has a crush on Clark, but he doesn't even notice Jan as more than a classmate. Clark flips over Marcia, who in turn just sees him as Jan's little friend. Jan is jealous and accuses Marcia of stealing her boyfriend. Marcia finally said: "Jan, if boys don't find you attractive, don't blame it one me."

After Jan asks Greg's advice "for a friend," Jan believes that there is something about her face that is turning off Clark, most specifically her freckles, which she'll do anything to get rid of, including rubbing lemons on her face. When Jan overhears Peter talking about a girl that he and Clark like that has freckles, a deeply dish, she is devastated and starts crying.

Mike and Carol decide to throw a surprise birthday party for her to cheer her up. When they go upstairs to talk to Jan about Clark, she makes up an imaginary boyfriend named George Glass. Mike and Carol want to invite George to the party, but when the search for him is unsuccessful, they come to the realization that they need to ask a boy about Jan's problems.

Carol asks Clark Tyson about how the boys in their class felt about Jan. He said they all liked her, but he referred to her as a guy, because she didn't dress like a girl. Jan puts on a dress and surprises Clark, who barely recognizes her.
