Taylor becomes image-conscious, and starts to worry about her appearance and dress code. This unfortunately coincides with Hector volunteering for flag duty at school, which registers quite high on the ‘dork’ scale. Taylor tries to subtly suggest that he rethink his position as flag monitor, but when Hector doesn’t take the hint, she gives it to him straight. Flag duty is a direct route to social death – strictly for dorks. Hector is insulted, and with their life-long friendship hanging in the balance, Taylor is forced to reassess her values and put her own social image on the line to win Hector back.
