According to Dobie, Zelda seems to be able to break him and any other girl up, that is except him and Maryann Krolisch, that is because Dobie can't get close enough to Maryann for there ever to be anything between the two of them to break up. That is why he is surprised when Maryann, who can have her choice of any guy at S. Peter Pryor Junior College, chooses him. Maryann already knows all about Zelda's usual tactic of highlighting Dobie's deficiencies, which does not dissuade Maryann in the slightest. Zelda is unwittingly the cause of Maryann's attraction to Dobie: if Zelda, the smartest girl in school, wants Dobie, there must be something special in him that only someone of Zelda's high intelligence can see that the rest of the world is missing. Zelda can't fight the logic in Maryann's reasoning. Dobie and Maryann know that Zelda won't give up in trying to break the two of them up. Will any of Zelda's new tricks work? Written by Huggo
