38. “The Millie-Churian Candidate”
(Season 5, Episode 12)
Featuring the second appearance from Millie (voiced by Molly Shannon), Louise’s annoying, obsessive wannabe friend who first appeared in “Fort Night,” “The Millie-Churian Candidate” deals with how outward disdain for another person can make them seem sympathetic. When Millie runs for school president in order to force Louise to become her friend, Louise runs as well, and yet her attempts to ruin Millie’s chances just increase them. With a clever twist ending and the reappearance of a couple memorable characters from earlier seasons, “The Millie-Churian” is a lot better than you’d expect from the fairly typical plot.
