You know that really tall girl
that you go to school with? Would you maybe wanna… Well, that’s me. Never mind. Sixteen years old,
six foot one… and a half. Well, how’s the weather
up there? Nice sweatpants, Sasquatch. What’d you say
to my best friend? Fareeda, please. Honey, you just
have to be strong in the face of adversity. I love it! That’s the one. You’re perfect. I just think it’s crazy
you won’t date a short guy. You really think
that at any moment some taller-than-you,
perfect guy is gonna walk
through that door? Okay. I’m going in. You are? No, of course I’m not. The guy got out of customs,
what, an hour ago, and she’s already
marking her territory. How do you like
America so far? I’m liking America
very much so far. One day, Jodi, you’re gonna stand up
and say, “I love
all 73 inches of myself.” -Hello?
-Hi. I’m the new exchange student
in your school. I was hoping you’d go with me
to the homecoming dance. Yeah, sure. I mean… Gotcha. Let’s face it, Jodi.
You’re the tall girl. I just want you to feel normal. Dad, every time you try
to make me feel more normal, you end up making me
feel like more of a freak. I need your help. Little sister, I’ve been waiting for this day
my entire life. I’ll Extreme Makeover
the crap out of you. Let’s get to work. So you’re telling me lip gloss and lipglass
are two different things? Stop stressing. I look like Grandma’s couch. Or a beautiful
mermaid princess! Now this is me. I like new Jodi. Face-your-fears Jodi. Going-after-what-you-want
Jodi. I’ve been in love with this girl since elementary school, and this new guy blows up
my plan. -You’re moving in on my man.
-No, I’m not. -Stay away from him.
-I will. Stop agreeing
with everything I say! Okay. We’ve all got
something about ourselves we wish we could change. -You’re my big little sister.
-That’s me. The only thing we can control
is how we deal with it. When you’re a tall girl,
it’s the only thing people see. It’s not the only thing I see. I just wanna make sure
that you don’t get hurt.
