1 John 3:2-3

2Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. 3Everyone who has this hope in him purifies himself, just as he is pure.

Romans 12:2
2Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will.

More Like Alicia

“More Like Alicia” is episode #401 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written by Marshal Younger, and originally aired on April 25, 1998.


Heather wishes she were more like Alicia, the most popular girl in school. Then she gets the chance to be Alicia for one day.


In the midst of an important science experiment in Mr. Leonard’s class, Heather, Paige, and Alicia are talking about an upcoming costume party. Heather accidentally pours too much acid into their experiment, creating a horrible smell. At Whit's End that afternoon, Julie Zeeke and Heather are talking about the accident and Heather admits she made the mistake because she is nervous around her lab partner, Alicia, the most popular girl in school. Julie disagrees with Heather's assessment of Alicia and her efforts to be friends with her.

Heather gets her hair cut and clothes just like Alicia's and even studies a videotape of Alicia to try to imitate her. Later, Alicia tells Heather that her new hairstyle looks terrible and is very rude to her, calling her a loser. When Heather hears that Alicia is sick and can't attend the costume party, Heather decides to use Alicia's costume and pretend she is Alicia. Heather acts just like Alicia at the party, making herself the center of attention and refusing to hang around with Julie. Disguised as Alicia, Heather finds out what Alicia really thinks about her and hears about a dangerous prank Mark is going to pull. She insists Mark not play the prank, and Mark decides he doesn't like her any more. The next day, Heather tells Whit what a mistake she made trying to be someone else just to impress others, and Whit helps her realize that Alicia probably doesn't have any real friends.

Heather goes to Julie's house to apologize for the way she treated her at the party and Julie forgives her. In science class, kids keep coming up to Alicia and treating her differently because of her behavior at the party, and Heather decides to tell her the truth.

Discussion Questions

  1. Why did Heather want to dress up like Alicia?
    • Have you ever wanted to be like someone else?
      • Who?
  2. Read Psalm 139 and think about what God must think of us wanting to be like other people. What are some things that God created you with that make you special?
  3. Like Chris said, we should strive to be more like Jesus, instead of people who are popular or famous. What does it mean to be like Jesus?

VERSION DIFFERENCE: [view] The album version of this episode is longer than the radio version. The party scene is slightly longer in the album version due to the story about the shoes being longer. Chris's ending comments are also longer.



Mark: Are you gonna be a goody-two shoes from now on?

Julie Zeeke: Yeah, beauty is in the eyes of the uhh... beekeeper.
John Whittaker: Uh, beholder.

Heather: And there's some words that she pronounces in a very interesting way. Like, words that end in "a-k-e", she pronounces it like "eck". So instead of "bake", she says "beck", and "cake", she says "ceck."
Julie Zeeke: As if to say, "I never passed third-grade phonics!"

Julie Zeeke: Congratulations: you're really obnoxious tonight. Just like Alicia.
Heather Acuff: Yeah, isn't it great?

Heather Acuff: Why don't you go talk to Fred?
Julie Zeeke: He's dressed as a pimple. Everyone's trying to squeeze him!
