Rubbed Raw and Reeling
Jenna feels guilty about a school tradition of a dance involving elaborate invites that highlights couples and makes singles feel inferior. Matty learns to dance.
During the homecoming pinnings, Jenna feels bad for the single girls who don't have dates to the dance, so she decides to take a stand, focusing on a social outsider named Christy, who was a childhood friend of hers. Jake teaches Matty how to dance after Tamara tells them that Jenna didn't want to go to the dance for that reason. Meanwhile, Ming turns to Sadie for help in playing mind games on Becca. In the end, Jenna and Matty are dancing in the parking lot to the song Closer and Kristy turned out to be a drug dealer.
