Sharon takes over the school newspaper advice column as the anonymous 'Miss Understanding'. When the column becomes a hit, Sharon becomes convinced of her advice-giving abilities and Nina takes advantage of the 'anonymous' position and claims credit for it. When Sharon's 'words of wisdom' cause a rift between Brock and Alden--thereby breaking up the band-- Sharon has to undo the damage. And, if that weren't bad enough, Maria has just become Mangled Metal's unofficial manager. In the end, Sharon realizes she needs to learn a lot more about life before she can go around giving advice.
- This is the only time one of Nina's unnamed friends actually speak, as she admonishes Nina for causing a rift between Alden and Brock under the mistaken impression that Nina is Miss Understanding.
