Sharon and Connor are teamed on a science project/contest that Connor really wants to win.

So when she accidentally obtains some crucial information that thrusts their team into the lead, she's reluctant to clear up the confusion.
Brock writes a school play, Dr. Jekyll & Ms. Hyde. Sharon and Nina audition for the title role(s), but Nina wins the lead because her evil Ms. Hyde is so genuinely convincing - and Sharon is assigned the part of understudy. So Sharon tries to get Nina to drop out of the play by taking advantage of Nina's superstitious streak. Unfortunately, things go even better than Sharon had planned.
Feeling bored with her life, Sharon is looking for a major change in routine. When her dad announces that he's moving in with his girlfriend Lauren, Sharon doesn't react as negatively as her brothers. In fact, Sharon is excited by the hip downtown loft and lifestyle. When she discovers that Lauren's fifteen-year-old son has been kicked out of boarding school and is moving in with her as well, Sharon thinks her days of boredom are over. Drawn to Griffin's edginess and the rebellion he represents, Sharon decides she wants to move in with her dad and Lauren as well.
Sharon, the only one in her crowd who's not half of a couple, overcompensates by raving about her romantic Italian boyfriend, Marcello. So when he announces he's coming to visit, she's over the moon. And when he arrives, everything is great! But not for long; his 'European-ness' doesn't translate well to North America. Instead of being romantic and poetic, he just seems dorky and cornball. In an effort to recapture what they had, Sharon tries to make Marcello over into a more North Americanized version. When that doesn't work, she tries to avoid being alone with him. But Marcello doesn't take the hint. Then she tries to turn him off by making herself unattractive. When her scheme fails, Sharon is forced to hire 'Dirty Work', a project that Adam and his pals started for their Economics Class. Their service is to do the deeds someone can't do on their own. But when the 'Dirty Work' messenger accidentally gives Connor the message, he thinks Alyson is trying to break up with him. Now Sharon finally has to tell Marcello the truth and though he's heartbroken, he helps Sharon get Connor and Alyson back together by staging a faux Italian romantic dinner for the couple.
