Curly's Girl is an episode in the Hey Arnold! TV Series.
When Rhonda's father shows her a mink coat that's intended to be her mother's birthday present, she secretly takes the coat to wear at the school's art show, and accidentally gets it stained by a candy apple when Park knocks her over while holding his painting. Curly offers to clean the coat if Rhonda agrees to pretend she's dating him for a week. At first, she denies, but realizing her possible punishment is worse than "dating" Curly, she hesitantly agrees.
After a week of surprising her classmates saying Curly's her soulmate, at noon, she "dumps" his affections in front of everyone. Feeling sorry for a heartbroken Curly, one by one, Rhonda's popularity begins to decline. In order to win back her place as the most popular girl in school, she pretends to get back together with Curly. Yet, after Curly kisses Rhonda and he overhears her saying that if she doesn't go through with this everyone will hate her, he angrily breaks up with her in front of everyone.
After school, Rhonda kindly thanks him and said he's an okay guy.... at least until he wants a lock of her hair to keep under his pillow.
