Eli meets Cassidy
She invites him to the ski trip and he teaches her to fix a cramp by pinching your lower lip using a pressure point

Eli lies to Jennifer
He gets a call from Cassidy (an event that freaks Jessie out) and when she asks who it was, Eli tells her it was his coach.

Jennifer catches Eli with Cassidy
Eli is walking Cassidy out of Karen's house after she's spent time with him in his room and Jennifer is walking up. No words exchanged, Jennifer just runs away. Significant part is that Jessie sees this and is deeply hurt and runs to her room.

Lyrics - Sneaky Feelings, by Elvis Costello

Now everybody's breakin' up somebody else's home,
before somebody else starts breaking up their own.
I get you in my dreams.
You should hear the things you say.
I's not that it's so much fun,
but it's safer that way.
Sneaky feeling, sneaky feelings,
you can't let those kind of feeling show.
I'd like to get right through the way I feel for you,
but I've still got a long way to go.
Why don't we call it a day, and we can both confess.
You can force me to use a little tenderness.
White lies, alibis, anything but say that it's true.
Now we could sit like lovers, staring in each other's eyes,
but the magic of the moment might become too much for you.
Sneaky feeling, sneaky feelings,
you can't let those kind of feeling show.
I'd like to get right through the way I feel for you,
