If the advice can be trusted, Tommy will win the heart of Sara. If it is a hoax, he will be totally humiliated. Therefore Tommy records the experiences of friends and classmates in an attempt to examine the facts scientifically. Then Tommy and friend Harvey, who is a real skeptic, comment on each story. Part of the problem is that Dwight, on whose finger Origami Yoda resides, is a total loser. There is no way Dwight can be giving the advice, or is there?
