Not that Alyssa cares what anyone thinks. In fact, she's so attached to the amethyst, she names it Amy. But when a prediction causes the bunk to miss a Phillies game - where Justin Timberlake sings - even the believers cross over to the dark side.
Still, Alyssa proclaims that the chances of her giving up the amethyst are "as likely as a snowstorm in July". And lo and behold, the next morning the campus is carpeted in snow.
Coincidence? Only Amy knows for sure.
