Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Dreamy Danny Kessler (Byron Fox) invites the adoring Lizzie to his upcoming pool party. Alas, Danny's bash falls on the same day (May 20th, to be exact) as the 80th birthday of Lizzie's grandma. Of course, Lizzie's mom, Jo (Hallie Todd), sternly demands that her daughter bypass the pool party for grandma's sake -- at least, until Jo herself is caught trying to wriggle out of one commitment in favor of another. Also: troublesome Kate (Ashlie Brillault) threatens to drive a wedge between Lizzie and her pal Miranda (Lalaine). This was the pilot episode of Lizzie McGuire -- though not the first episode to be telecast.
