Annette may regret going to the party with Olmstead Ware: he doesn't have a car, though Annette insists she likes walking, and he talks her into stopping by the local malt shop first--for his daily sugar rush. Annette likes the handsome soda-jerk, Mike Martin, but is dismayed that he won't be at the party. When the couple finally arrives at Val's house, most of the gang has already paired up for dances out on the patio. Kitty Blalock, who has a crush on "Steady" (and matches him in height!), isn't happy that he brought a girl with him, but everyone appears to like and welcome Annette...except for piano-playing Laura Rogan, who catches Steve smiling at Annette and immediately begins to pick the new girl apart. Annette, too polite to do anything but go along, finds herself stuck playing a game of Spin the Bottle, and forced into singing a song.
