Casey falls down the school stairs, and everybody laughs at her, includingDerek. As a result, the whole school calls her Klutzilla. The school is "watching out" for her, but she blames it on Derek. Casey falls into Marti's box. Derek then thinks Casey likes Sam as both incidents were in front of Sam.


  • Derek gave Casey the nickname "Klutzilla" after she fell down the stairs at school.
  • This is the first episode in which Lizzie and Edwin have one of their "closet meetings."


Derek: (to Corey about his rump after pulling him away from Casey) How does it feel?
Corey: Well, it hurts when I sit down.
Derek: Yeah? Well, I want you to do me a favor.
Corey: Sure. What is it?
Derek: Cut Casey some slack.
Corey: (puzzled) Why?
Derek: ’Cause she’s my step-sister.
Corey: (surprised, while also realizing why Casey told him that her lawyer was also her step-dad) No.
Derek: Yes.
