"Sense and Sensitivity" is the second segment of the second episode of season one of The Weekenders and the fourth episode of the series. It premiered on March 4, 2000, on Kid's ABC with "Shoes of Destiny".


Having made her friends angry at her for the last time, Lor vows to be sensitive for their every need. However, will her friends, family and even herself like the new her?


Inside the school gym, Lor is competing in a two-on-two basketball game against two rich kids from Campo Fields Middle School. However, she ignores her teammate, Diego, who is open to receiving the ball, in favor of making a shot which is blocked by one of the kids, causing her to lose the game. She demands a rematch on Sunday; they accept and try to raise the stakes by having the losing team fly the winning team's school's flag for one month. Coach Colson reminds them their proposal is against district policy but accepts the challenge for his group anyway.

Diego reprimands Lor for not passing the ball to him and leaves when she remains clueless. Carver explains to her that she isn't a team-player and can be self-centered, but Tish defends her. Tino remains silent because tonight is the premiere for Star Pilots 4, and Lor is responsible for waiting in line to buy the tickets.

That night, Tish, Carver, and Tino arrive at the theater but find no signs of Lor. Tish is certain that Lor won't let them down, but Tino and Carver aren't convinced. The three are stuck two hours the theater waiting for Lor and find her leaving the cinema with two strangers. Lor explains there were only three tickets left when she arrived at the box office, so as to not leave out any of her friends, she shared them with two strangers. The group are angry at her and declare they can't be friends with her until she learns to be considerate.

Lor arrives at the pizzeria apologizing for being late and also offers to pay the bill, surprising everyone. She promises them that they'll be witnessing a new kinder her. However, the three quickly note how excessively kind Lor has become, which include wiping food from Tino's cheek and offering painful foot messages to Tino and Carver. While Tish, Tino, and Carver watch a music video of Chum Bukkit, Lor arrives with freshly made lemonade and offers to fluff the couch's cushions despite doing it minutes ago. In essence, every action of hers is dedicated to doing something nice.

Tish declares the new Lor a nice monster, and Tino agrees by saying Lor was less creepy when she was selfish. Tish reminds them that her basketball game is tomorrow, and imagines that Lor's excessive kindness will cause her to allow her opponents to win in order to be kind. The three are convinced that they must return Lor back into the selfish her before the game.

Naturally, Tino turns to his mom for advice. While Lor is mowing the lawn in the background, Ms. Tontini convinces her son to simply talk to Lor.

Tino, Carver, and Tish walk to Lor's house to find that even her brothers are annoyed by her excessive kindness. Tino tries to tell Lor that she can tone down her kindness, but Lor is convinced they're testing her and walks away. The plan involves playbacks similar to Coach Colson's.

The three force Lor to sit and watch a playback of her stealing a piece of pizza from Tish. As if broken, Lor needs to do an act of kindness and begins fluffing the pillows. Tino clicks a button to remove the tape from the VCR, but it gets stuck. He asks help from Tish and she snaps, calling him "a lazy jerk" and yells about how no one appreciated her kindness.

At the basketball, Lor passes the ball to Diego this time and he manages to make the shot. They win and Lor proceeds to mock the Campo students. Everyone cheers for her. Tino states Lor may not be perfect, but she has improved. She offers the team with Tino buying for them.
