There's only one order of business at this last meeting, and it's the three $50,000 GOLD STARs. Jonathan tells the Council to go take a walk to talk about it. Outside, Greg says that the last GOLD STARs should be about not only hard work, but about making Bonanza City better. DK agrees, and names Sophia. Inside, Sophia stands up to apologize to "anybody I've bossed around, screamed at, or offended. You've all changed my life for good." I notice she's wearing her kitchen apron, which I'm sure is totally a coincidence. Greg says that Mike's a good kid. Inside, Mike tells everyone he loves them, as Greg says Mike was a good Council leader from the beginning. He just needed a little push, was all. DK is also thinking about Migle, who we see saying to the kids that they should all be proud of themselves. DK says Migle has been constantly improving. Michael mentions Anjay. Greg calls Anjay a trouper, but is thinking more about Morgan. Who we see telling everyone that they've improved on their swearing. Everyone laughs, especially Morgan's parents. "You fucking tell those little shits, bitch!" Morgan's dad doesn't say. Greg thinks Laurel is quite deserving. Laurel makes an inspiring speech of the kind Laurel is always making. Michael floats Markelle's name, and they talk about how Markelle makes people smile. Michael interviews that he wishes he had 36 more GOLD STARs to give out, and this was the most difficult decision of his life.
The Council returns. Michael stands and makes a little speech before naming...Sophia. Big surprise. Smart to get that out of the way. Sophia, at least, seems surprised as she stands to accept the award, and everyone claps. Her mom looks really proud. Sophia gives an emotional thank-you speech and goes back to hug her mom. She interviews about how flattered and happy she is. And suddenly battling emphysema, from the sound of her voice. Must have been a whole lot of yelling and crying the night before.
Greg gets up to announce that the next person has been a real friend to him and to everyone, and gives the second GOLD STAR to Morgan. She's in total disbelief as she walks the short distance from the front row to Jonathan, and her parents look amazed as well. "Balls tits cock!" her mom doesn't say. Morgan's speech is about how she doesn't deserve it, since she's been working less and hanging out with people more lately. Jonathan guesses that this GOLD STAR wasn't about hard work, and Greg confirms that Morgan brought the community together. Congrats on winning the slacker GOLD STAR, Morgan! Morgan's dad stands and thanks the Council. Greg in turn thanks Morgan's dad for letting them have Morgan in the community. Morgan's dad asks Greg how old he is, and he's taken aback when Greg answers 15. He says he has adult conversations that don't go that well. He thanks everyone (failing to add, "pussy asshole shit goddamn fuck," by the way), and Morgan goes back to hug her folks to much applause. Morgan interviews that this was one of the best days of her life, that the people in town make her feel good about herself, and that she feels like she belongs there more than she does any place other than with her family at home. She does not add, "Cocksuckers!"
