While Kira studies for a fairy tale play (which involves Cinderella), Angelica tries to trick Chuckie into thinking that he'll be living the same life as Cinderella -- virtually being a slave to Angelica and Kimi, while everyone else gets ready for a party that will celebrate the newlywed couple's adoption of each other's child, a couple of weeks after their marriage.
