Gumball falls in love with Skylar Peterson.
Gumball falls in love with the new girl, Skylar Peterson.
The episode begins with Gumball and Darwin meddling mischeiviously during math class. Miss Simian screams at the class, explaining to them that a new girl will be there in a minute. Darwin is very excited about this, while Gumball thinks it will be another Carrie or Sussie kind of girl. Skylar shyly walks into the classroom. As Miss Simian introduces her, Gumball blushes as his eyes turn into big pink hearts. Penny, from a distance, sees this and blushes with envy.
At lunch, Skylar sits with the other girls while Gumballs eyes her from the table he usually sits at with Darwin. Darwin fish slaps him back to earth. Gumball admits that he likes her and Darwin agrees to help him get the girl. When he comes home, Nichole and Richard (mostly Nichole) asks him about his day, and Gumball accidentally blurts out about Skylar. Richard gives him some appropriate, but bad, flirty antics and Gumball uses them next day at school. This fails miserably and makes Skylar saying "Uh.. thanks?" in an awkward kind of way. Penny, meanwhile, stalks Gumball and his actions towards Skylar and tries to rid her, but fails.
Finally, in a last disperate attempt, Gumball asks Skylar to go and play video-games with him after school. Skylar happily agrees and after they do just that. Pretty soon, Gumball finds out Skylar is a tomboy and is satisfied with this. Skylar heads back home after, which is two houses away.
The next day, Gumball, Darwin, and Skylar are seen at lunch talking and laughing together. Skylar then fights a large food fight and Gumball and Darwin happily participate.
