The school announces its annual House sport and quiz competition and Hank finds himself forced to try out for the Yellow House softball team.

Given his co-ordination issues, Hank knows that he's doomed to fail, but when he runs out of socks and borrows a pair of Emily's sparkly pink socks on the morning of practice with Papa Pete, he's stunned to discover that he can actually hit the ball. Seems the socks are a lucky charm and soon Hank refuses to take them off.

But when Emily decides that she also needs her lucky socks to win the quiz, the pair come to blows.
