In the series' most self-referential episode to date, Eric (Will Friedle) is courted by two prestigious drama schools after appearing in a college production of "Romeo and Juliet". Instead, he chooses a role in the popular ABC sitcom "Kid Gets Acquainted with the Universe"--and in case anyone misses the resemblance to you-know-what, the show's stars are "Ben Sandwich" and "Schneider Strong." The experience proves to be most disillusioning for Eric when he finds out that the actors are the exact opposites of their TV characters, sometimes nastily so. Meanwhile, a bad case of chicken pox may patch up the damaged friendship between Shawn (Rider Strong) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel).
