The Disappearing Egg Trick


Hannah models her "perfect skin" for a Magic Glo zit cream ad. When Lilly loses her contacts and has to wear her "dorky" glasses. Miley gives her advice that looks don't matter, citing as reference the fact that, for instance, Oliver never worries about his "uneven nostrils." Oliver begins to agree, then freaks out about his "nostril problem," and Lilly gets discouraged. When they get to see the billboard, a zit has been painted on Hannah's forehead by Liza, the photographer. Miley pretends it doesn't bother her so she can convince Lilly to participate in the half-pipe finals and beat Heather (Gina DeVivo), who has beaten Lilly every year. But it really does bother Miley, so she pays Jackson to return with her and hold the paint can of beige color while she paints over the zit. Hannah unveils her billboard to the public and Lilly sees that she had painted over the zit and gets mad, so Hannah washes it off with water and tells everyone that looks don't matter.

In a sub-plot Jackson has to be Rico's assistant in a fake magic show, only to have to put a dress on and have Rico crack an egg on his head, because Jackson isn't sure Rico's dad, is going to give him a raise. Then, Jackson finds out he was going to get the raise anyway and decides to get some revenge by dumping seaweed on Rico's head, but then the girl he was dating comes down and sees him, Rico pretends that he's just an "innocent little boy" and the girl whom Jackson is dating dumps him.
