Alex is thrilled when he gets the chance to play Romeo opposite Nicola's Juliet in the school play — finally, he can land a kiss on his dream girl. But at the height of his celebrations, he slams into a skateboarding Parker in the school corridor and injures his nose. Then, to make matters worse, he wipes snot on Nicola. On stage he fares no better, as his injury causes him to tumble at Nicola's feet, then sneeze all over her.

Unable to overcome this new insult, Nicola abandons the play and runs home. Alex chases after her and convinces her to return, but just as she's softening towards him, he stuffs everything up by letting her dog loose onto a busy street …

On his second chance, Alex carefully tries to avoid the skateboard accident he suffered before, but manages to get a door slammed in his face instead. Despite an even worse injury than last time, Alex refuses to give up on his chance to kiss Nicola. But despite his best intentions, nausea overwhelms him and he's sick at her feet. Once again, Nicola flees in disgust; once again, Alex sets off to bring her back. But can he manage to save the dog and win the girl this time?
