"Nicky Gone Bad" is the 22nd episode of the first season of Pepper Ann. It aired on January 24, 1998.

Plot

Fed up with her friends taking her for granted and being seen as a goody-goody, Nicky becomes a bad girl known as Nic'kay, but Pepper Ann worries that Nicky's new attitude will lead to a life of ruin.

Synopsis

Nicky wakes up every morning getting ready and prepped for the day, even going so far as to make suggestions to her own parents and going to Pepper Ann and Milo's to wake them up for school. The tradition soon becomes monotonous for her, especially when Pepper Ann and Milo call her perfect and copy her work. She finally snaps and tells them that she is going to be a bad girl from now on. The next day, she comes into class tardy with messy hair and lipstick on and now calling herself Nic'kay, but Mr. Carter excuses her because of her usual perfect self which once again annoys her.

Nicky tries to do a variety of bad things such as buying her food at school, returning a book late, making lewd words at scrabble, messing with elevator buttons, buying tickets for a PG-13 film and trying to leave school to head to the mall. However, all of these attempts fail with some of them having an ironic comeback or making her seem more like her usual nice and perfect self. Pepper Ann begins imagining that if Nicky continues down this road she will succumb to terrible misfortune. She finally confronts her about her actions and suggests that he cannot pretend to be bad for long, which she challenges.

Nicky puts off her usual studies and tries to go to sleep, but has a dream that she fails at everything because she gave up on her studies. She immediately gets back into studying. Pepper Ann and Milo barge into Nicky's room in the morning to try to get her to change her mind, but she tells them that she already has, or rather Pepper Ann thinks she got through to her. Pepper Ann and Nicky get to Mr. Carter's class and he proudly embraces Nicky returning to normal. However, he still gives Pepper Ann a detention slip for being tardy, but she and Nicky laugh it off.
