What Do You Think?
After a rather tedious day at school, Liz wonders what people really think of her. Her friend Sarah Prachett seems to like her clothes, but does she? Her friend Alex seems to like her, but does he really? Will she get the part in the Little Theater production? Whit offers to show her what others are thinking through the Room of Consequence. Liz experiences what it’s like to hear what other people are thinking. Sarah doesn’t really like her clothing. Alex likes her, but only when compared to dissecting frogs. She got the part in the play, but no one was really paying attention when she performed. She decides that maybe thoughts are better left unheard.

- John Beebee says: "The trip inside Eugene's head was especially fun to hear after the recording session. As he often does, the actor who plays Eugene took the lines I had written and added to them, making them even better!"
- This episode originally had an AIO shorty between it and its pair, #441b: "Idol Minds". The shorty was titled "Revelation Trailer". This shorty is currently unavailable in any format from Focus on the Family. This skit occurs as Eugene and Connie sit in a movie theater. They see a trailer for the book of Revelation and then the trailer begins to interact with them. Good lines include, "If you're on the right side, we guarantee you'll like the ending," "Revelation...coming sooner than you think."
- When Liz says "How could I forget? Nearly put me off Choca-Mocha-Chocolate Fudge cake with Chocolate-Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream permanently!" she is referring to The Eternal Birthday.
- When Liz's teacher mentally sings about "little froggies all unwary" and "a wandering froggy" he is singing a parody of songs from Gilbert & Sullivan's The Mikado.
