Cheer Me Up is the fourth episode of the first season which was broadcast on April 18, 2010.


When a member of the Bennett High cheerleading team sprains her ankle, and opening appears on the squad. Brittany signs Carl up based on a DVD of his moves, forged by Porter in hope of increasing his popularity.

Another spell from Porter makes Carl the best cheerleader on the squad, but when she hears that Carl could replace her as captain, Brittany swaps Carl's exam paper with Alex's. The resulting C grade gets Carl kicked off the team, and although he makes one final appearance after his Maths teacher overrules his grade, he steps down from the team.

This episode also features Jane's search for the missing chapter of her favourite book, Cosmonaut Claire, which is later relevant in the season 2 episode Reel Trouble.
