Uncle Bentley wants Kelly to appear in the talent show, but Kelly shows little aptitude for piano or ballet. Peter helps Kelly to work up a comedy routine of impressions of celebrities reciting "Mary had a Little Lamb." As Groucho, Kelly punctuates each line by wiggling her duct tape eyebrows. As Edward G. Robinson, Kelly wears a bowler, talks out of one side of her mouth and adds the word "see" to the end of each line. Her Marilyn Monroe wears a boa and says "ummm" at the end of each line. Kelly decides to be an usherette instead of performing, and Bentley tells her that her family will be there to support her no matter what.
The talent show features two girls who are considered the most talented in the school—at least by their parents, and also another girl who appropriates Kelly's celebrity nursery rhyme act—although to be fair, her Marilyn Monroe was better than Kelly's. The proud parents of the superstars of the class are flabbergasted when they learn that the girl who did the impressions wins first prize in the contest for her originality. Before everyone leaves, the emcee announces that there is also a trophy for the most popular student as chosen by the other students—and Kelly wins that, to the delight of Peter.
