This is so bad, I'd actually rather do my homework!
Luke about Stuart's acting

Acting With the Frenemy is the twelfth episode in Season 3 of JESSIE and the 64th episode overall. It aired on April 27, 2014.



Jessie meets a new friend named Abbey in an acting class, but Jessie finds surprising things about Abbey. Abbey copied Jessie's idea
leaving everyone thinking that was Abbey's brilliant idea. Abbey then bribes Ravi to fire Jessie in the play, but Ravi double-crosses her and helps Jessie instead. Meanwhile, Luke invites a new member to his crew, whom to his annoyance, Zuri suddenly has a crush on, which makes Stuart a bit jealous and upset. Emma advises Stuart to be funnier, but he takes her
advice a bit too literally, boring Zuri in the process. In the end, Stuart stands up for Zuri, and she thanks him for that. Luke leaves because it is too intense for him.
