Keith doesn't look too happy when his friend becomes homecoming queen, but Jerry looks like he's having fun.

I thought back in the day that coed public schools had both a Men's team and a women's team. ( I didn't attend a coed school, so I can't say for sure), so why didn't the coach suggest Frankie be on that team.
I know that this was a hot button topic back in the day so, I realize that even if there was a women's team the story would have been well, why can't she play with the boys.
Of course, I also thought that there was a homecoming King and Queen, also,

I guess my high school wasn't normal enough for me to get this episode beyond the women's lib message.

I like the song "money, money", it's a shame that the Bulletin Board album didn't generate much airplay, because it would have probably changed a few folks perceptions about the PF music even through today.

I also love "Money, Money" - DC's voice is soooo...yummy.

I had no clue what a Homecoming Queen was back then; I still don't. Speaking of stereotypes, anyone else notice that when the family and Frankie (minus Keith and Danny) left the house to go to the contest, Chris was the last one out and closed the door? Also, the choice of unisex names for Jerry and Frankie was key. Not sure if Jeri/Geri was used for girls back then but hearing the name today, we can't assume it's a boy. "Unisex" names have certainly been on the upswing in the last few decades as parents try to avoid gender stereotyping.
