Scripture
1 John 4:7-12
7Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.8Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.9This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.10This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.11Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.12No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.

Matthew 7:1
1"Do not judge, or you too will be judged.

Something Cliqued Between Us
“Something Cliqued Between Us” is episode #427 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written by Marshal Younger, and originally aired on October 23, 1999.

Summary

Liz Horton and Julie are furious when they feel excluded by a clique of girls they call the “Calvin Clones.”

Plot

At a lovely afternoon at Whit’s End, Julie and Liz are getting ice cream. They are convinced that Cassidy and Beth are in a clique, and they call them the Calvin Clone Girls. As they talk with Whit, he tells them there is nothing wrong with wanting to be with people you feel comfortable with, but it becomes a problem when you exclude others for the wrong reasons. While they are talking, Mandy walks in and wants to visit with Julie and Liz, but they ignore her and decide to go home, thus hurting Mandy's feelings.

The next day at school, Mandy is talking to Jared by her locker at school when she finds a note from someone called "Miss Friendship" who invites anyone who is struggling with friendships to e-mail her for advice. Several girls take advantage of the forum to share their struggles with friendship, but it isn't long before Mandy guesses it is Jared who is posing as Miss Friendship. She confronts him and tells his parents what he has done, and they require that he apologize to everyone.

Meanwhile, Julie and Liz find some notes that Cassidy and Beth have written, in which it appears they nicknamed Liz "Red" and are making fun of her. They scheme about how to retaliate. In the last scene back at Whit's End, Whit reminds Mandy that she can not force anyone to be friends with her. Soon Julie, Liz, and Cassidy arrive.

Julie and Liz start blaming Cassidy for being mean to Mandy, and they get into a loud argument. Whit quiets them down and says there is someone there that could shed light on their situation. Out walks Jared, who reveals he has been masquerading as Miss Friendship. He apologizes and gives them one more bit of advice: if you want friends, try to be a friend first, and don't complain about the speck in someone else's eye when you have a plank in your own. They all apologize and have chocolate double dip ice cream together.

Discussion Questions

  1. Who did Liz and Julie think were a "clique"? Why did they think so?
  2. Why was Mandy angry at Jared for pretending to be Miss Friendship?
  3. Have you ever felt left out like Mandy did? Are there any people in your life that you might be "leaving out" without thinking about

Notes

Trivia
  • VERSION DIFFERENCE: In the broadcast version of this episode, The Shorty Mr. How-To: The House Built on Sand is heard after Chris' wrap up.
  • The character of Cassidy (played by Danielle Judovits) in this episode was named after Mark Drury's daughter. The team liked Danielle's performance in this episode so much that they gave her the major role of Aubrey Shepard.
  • This episode was Jared's last one, before leaving for more then two years.
  • It is likely that the designer company Calvin Clone, from which Cassidy and Beth are stated to buy all of their clothing, is based off of the American fashion designer company Calvin Klein.
  • In this episode, Julie says that Liz is good at English; Liz's writing skills would later lead to her working for the school paper when Mrs. Nietchew took notice of her abilities in #506: “For Trying Out Loud”.

Reviews

Quotes

John Whittaker: Jared taking over the world. Now there's a scary thought!

Jared DeWhite: As the Bible says, why do you care so much about the spam in your brother's eye when you have a hog in your own? Or something like that.

Cassidy: You? I actually asked YOU how to tell a friend that he has bad breath? You, who has absolutely no manners? You, who says whatever's on his mind at all hours of the day, no matter how offensive or annoying? You, who had no problem telling our English teacher she resembled an ostrich? I actually asked YOU this question?!
Jared DeWhite: Yeah...how'd that turn out, by the way?
Cassidy: AAAAHHHH!!!

Mandy Straussberg: It's wrong, Jared.
Jared DeWhite: It's all a matter of opinion.
Mandy Straussberg: It's not a matter of opinion. John F. Kennedy did not shoot Abraham Lincoln.
Jared DeWhite: That's what they want you to think!

Mandy Straussberg: <On the phone> Jared? Are you Miss Friendship? Are you?!
Jared DeWhite: Uh... I gotta go! <hangs up phone>
Mandy Straussberg: AAAAHHH!!

Jared DeWhite: But I don't get it. In her e-mails, Mandy said that she liked my advice. She said that she followed it, and some of it even worked. I mean, what difference does it make that it's me?
John Whittaker: Jared, you have to admit, you're not exactly an authority on most of the subjects people are writing to you about.
Jared DeWhite: Why not?
John Whittaker: Well, you're telling people how to get along with others, yet you have trouble getting along with others, right?
Jared DeWhite: What's your point?
John Whittaker: You don't practice what you preach. If you really want people to take you seriously, you need to fix your own problems before you try to fix theirs.
