Vince shows the rest of the gang his marble, telling them that he is using it to try and win the football game, defeating The Boot, a kid who kicks the ball very far.
Spinelli borrows it to pass a test; she aces the test and starts testing the abilities of the marble. She does so in games like hoops and skipping, before dropping it. When she tells Vince, he forgives her because he got a new good luck charm: a shiny nickel.
