Characters[edit]

Main[edit]

To prevent this from happening, she creates a bucket list filled with things to accomplish before high school.
  • Fenwick Frazier (Jaheem King Toombs) is a seventh grader who became CJ's first friend in kindergarten. He is the smartest student in the entire school and tends to be reluctant to CJ's ideas. However, he is loyal, and is prone to adventure.
  • Christian "Crispo" Powers (Owen Joyner) is a 12-year-old boy who vowed to be CJ's best friend after she saved him from choking on his stuffed horse in kindergarten. In sixth grade, he had a bad haircut and braces, but got them off prior to the events of the series' first episode, he became the coolest boy in the whole school, causing the most popular girl in the school to constantly try to get his affections, which becomes a running gag in the series. Nevertheless, he is also loyal, and while he does not have much common sense, his heart is in the right place, and he just wants to have fun with his two best friends as much as he can.
  • Jack Roberts[1] (Jack De Sena) is the school's guidance counselor, who often helps the three with their list and gives them advice. He often finds loopholes to help CJ.

When the tour's over, Mr. Roberts comes over to congratulate CJ, Fenwick, and Crispo on a job well done and sends the elementary school students back to their school, as they're leaving, they each give Fenwick a high-five.

25 "Get Your Heart Pre-Broken Thing!" Savage Steve Holland Scott Fellows February 27, 2016 (2016-02-27) 114 1.17[30]

After seeing Ronbie taking his first breakup pretty hard, CJ, Fenwick, and Crispo make it their thing to get their hearts pre-broken in order to survive actual breakups, the plan is to find someone they crush on, ask them out on a smoothie date, and then experience their hearts being broken when they say no. Later, Mr. Roberts is not in the mood to deal with their thing due to parent–teacher conferences. Meanwhile, Crispo asks a girl out on a date in hopes that she will say no, but when she says yes and he then changes his mind, she becomes heartbroken. Fenwick asks Amy, a popular eighth grade girl, out on a date, but she says no because she prefers football players and leaves Fenwick heartbroken. CJ then asks Gorgeous Eighth Grade Boy out on a date and is prepared for the worst, but when he says yes, she is left in shock. Later, after some cheering up from Mr. Roberts, Fenwick attempts to ask Amy out again by bad-mouthing her current boyfriend, she agrees, leaving Fenwick a little surprised. Meanwhile, Crispo attempts to ask another girl out in hopes that she will say no, but when she doesn't, he also makes her cry and is then chased by a mob of angry girls when he reveals he didn't want to go out with any of them, forcing him into Mr. Roberts' office, he then gets the bright idea to make CJ his crush and follows her around all over the place. Amy's boyfriend, Dale, finds Fenwick and chases him. Meanwhile, Crispo gets CJ to say no to a smoothie, but it doesn't hurt him, so continues trying. Dale finds Fenwick and Fenwick discovers that he is heartbroken and just wants Amy back. CJ begins to realize that she and Gorgeous Eighth Grade Boy have nothing in common, especially after he makes her carry his books. Fenwick tries to help Dale win Amy back, when the plan backfires, Dale chases him into Mr. Roberts' office. Later, Crispo reads a poem to a CJ which actually impresses her. Gorgeous Eight Grade Boy's poem, not so much. Fenwick attempts to help Dale again, but when Amy reveals she is going out with someone else, they are both heartbroken and go into Mr. Roberts' office to eat ice-cream, interrupting his meetings yet again. Crispo tries to get his heart broken again, and this time when CJ says no to a smoothie date, he actually feels something that slightly hurts. Crispo then offers to go out with one of the girls he rejected earlier. CJ then gets that same feeling and cancels her date with Gorgeous Eighth Grade Boy. Back at home, Ronbie is back on his feet with a new date and wishes CJ well who is on the couch eating ice-cream.
