|The New Girl|
|Season 3, Episode 0|
When Howard Met...
|Spoiler warning! Plot details follow.|
At the start of the episode, Sam has to go to an "Emergency Cheerleading Tryout" and Zoe goes to watch it. Meanwhile, when they get to Centerscore, Zoe tries talking to Sam, and Sam is disgusted and tries ignoring her, because she thinks Zoe is a "Lame tomboy who nobody knows." and is scared that Zoe will ruin her reputation, as she is right on the verge of becoming a cheerleader. As Sam says, "Let's face it... You obviously don't know how to dress, and can barely speak without mumbling... And I can tell just by looking at you that you've never had a boyfriend!" And Zoe admits that it is completely true. While they are talking, Sam notices that Howard, the star quarter-back on the football team, is heading their way. She warns Zoe not to say a word. Howard walks up to them and starts talking, and asks who Zoe is, in which she replies "I- I'm new here." and stumbles over her words. It is after then that she is initially attracted to him.
Meanwhile, Taylor announces that their friend, (and cheerleader) Amanda has broken her leg at Winter Formal, Thanks to Hector and a freak accident. While Sam is trying out with the other cheerleaders, Jessica and Maria come up to Sam, saying that 'they will make sure all the other girls vote for her to become a cheerleader' thanks to popular girl politics. While they are practicing throws, Keith and Hector attempt to toss Sam into the air, however, Hectors grip fails him and Sam comes flying towards Zoe. If the choosing minigame is won, Zoe will successfully catch Sam, and Taylor invites her to join the tryouts.
Zoe impresses the crowd with some flips and high-kicks, however, she is shy when it comes to cheering. And Sam, on the other hand, impresses the crowd with a series of flips and cheers. At the end of the day, Taylor announces that she needs 'more time to decide' and that 'most of them were clearly unqualified to be cheerleaders, but Zoe and Sam were both excellent candidates!' She decides that there shall be a voting at the end of the week, on Friday, and that Zoe and Sam have one week to 'win the hearts of the voters.'
The week continues like that, with Zoe and Sam competing to win the votes of people, and Zoe notices that Keith seems to like her. Zoe can get Amandas, Howards, Keiths, Hectors, Rachels and Taylors numbers, and has two chances in school, and two chances after school to hang out with them. If Zoe successfully has 4 smiley faces with all of the people above, they will all vote for her. (Jessica and Maria will always vote for Sam, no matter what.) There are 9 cheerleaders, so Zoe must have atleast 5 votes in order to win. In order to get a perfect game, Zoe must call Howard each night, and win his love. If Zoe wins the vote, 'she and Sam become a package deal' and convinces the team to let Sam join. As Taylor says, "The more people to boss around... Fine, I guess."
At the end, there is a scene where the Fighting Lizards are playing a game of football, and need one more score to win the game. The cheerleaders cheer, all 11 of them, and Howard scores the last goal, and win the game. After that, he is interviewed by the announcer, who asks him where his inspiration came from, to which he replies, and the announcer asks whether they are dating, and says "What are you waiting for, boy? Go get her!" And as he gets up and sees her with the other cheerleaders, Linda comes up to him, and tells him that she has broken up with Kenji. And (presumably) wants to get back together, which means Howard has to choose between Linda and Zoe.
