Why Do Foils Fall in Love? (also known as Stabbed in the Heart) is the fourteenth episode in Season 2 of JESSIE. It first aired on April 19, 2013 to 2.94 million viewers.


It's Jessie and Tony's anniversary, so Jessie decides to write Tony a song about how much she loves him when suddenly he decides to choose bowling instead over their date. So she writes an angry song that she calls "The Worst Year of My Life" that Emma puts on her web show's site "Kitty Couture". But the next day, it turns out that Jessie got the date wrong and not Tony. The song becomes a huge hit so the director of an all-girl singer/songwriter concert in the park emails Emma and wants Jessie to perform in the park. But Tony wants to take her to the concert for their date, so Emma distracts Tony while Jessie and Zuri to the park. While Jessie is singing on stage, Tony walks into the park. He hears Coach Penny yelling "Louder Jessie!!! Make that Tony pay for ripping your heart out stomping on it!!". This makes Tony realize Jessie is singing about him and gets upset. Jessie soon turns to where Tony is standing and is shocked.

Meanwhile, Ravi is struggling in gym class to Luke tries to help him by letting him win when they were fencing in class. After winning Ravi was full of himself and kept on bragging to Luke making Luke really annoyed. At home, Luke sets up their fencing gear and challenges Ravi. Later, Luke has Ravi cornered but can't beat him and puts his sword down. Then when Luke turns around with Ravi to go home, Ravi claims his victory. Once everyone left the park, Jessie sang the song she wanted to sing to him all along called "The Best Year of My Life".

  • Despite using Foils, Ravi and Luke fight in the style of sabre fighting (cutting and slashing). Foil is more close to Rapier fighting.
