Comparisons and similarities of JONAS LA ep. 9 and Lizzie McGuire ep. 41

To begin with, this is my ONLY fave JONAS LA episode to boot and nothing else. the reason is the sub-plot of Frankie crushing on Macy for no reason. here's the recap of the said plot:

When The Lucas trio's dad visits them, Frankie was left to be taken care of by Macy since Stella fell ill while the Lucas Brothers go on a meeting with their father. what began as a babysitting job becomes a crush effect for Frankie towards Macy. Frankie dressed in a tux for Macy, making her go in awe and to distract him from falling for her, she tries many ways to make him think less of her but fails, even Macy saying that she is taken, which Frankie counters with "then may the best brother win". however it was Macy's horrible cooking that finally stops Frankie and they were over. Macy's last words after that? "I'm Free!"

Sounds familiar? you could say it was. because an episode of Lizzie McGuire, "Working Girl", has a similar thing: Matt crushing on Miranda, which ends with Melina "saving" him from Miranda instead of something Miranda did (since she was powerless against Matt's crush). It might be even a shout out to the said episode. so here's the similarities 1st:

  1. Both Frankie and Matt are younger sibs of the main characters, and are 9 years old.
  2. Both of them have a crush on the girl member of the main cast.
  3. Both woo the girls with many ways (Matt giving Miranda homemade gifts and flirting with her, Frankie sweet-talking Macy and Frankie planned to make her a Macaroni Necklace).
  4. Both are deaf to the girls' attempt to "drive them away" (Matt ignoring Miranda's oblivious dislike for him and Frankie deaf to Macy's "I have a boyfriend and he's your brother" explanation).
  5. Both Macy and Miranda are portrayed by Fil-Ams (Nicole Anderson and Lalaine, respectively). might be a factor why they liked them.

and then the comparisons:

  1. Frankie's crush on Macy ended when she baked cookies... badly. Matt ended his when Melina came and retrieved her away from defenseless Miranda.
  2. Frankie was dressed up nice for Macy. Matt went a bit up with a planned date with him and Miranda, which she had no choice but do.
  3. Frankie did not have someone to keep encouraging his "Crush". Matt has one in Gordo since Gordo was entertained with Matt's crush.
  4. Frankie didn't care about Macy having a boyfriend- his own brother. Matt however, has a bit of jealousy in Gordo, thinking Miranda was dating him.
  5. Frankie fell for Macy instead of Stella, and could be because she hugged him first. Matt fell for Miranda after giving him advice.

Frankie and Matt may be different, but they know how to get the girl... even if it's just one episode only. =]
