Characters Present


Angelica falls for Dean, a biker-type kid who she describes as "a 4-year old's dream on a 5-year old's bike". Her heart is broken when Dean ends up pledging his love to someone else -- his mother.

- Description from Klasky Csupo.


While visiting her cousin Tommy one day, Angelica catches a glimpse at a new boy, Dean. Almost immediately, she’s smitten by him, but doesn’t know how to tell him she likes him, so she drops him hints throughout the whole episode.

When Angelica and Dean finally have a chance to be together the boy's mother comes and picks him up. After this incident, Angelica decides not to fall in love again, but when a French boy becomes her new next-door neighbor, she instantly falls in love with him and forgets all about Dean.
