Bailey got her groove back because:
-She is a powerful motivational speaker, but only to her house plants and knick-knacks.
-True story: she once owned The rights to Apple, but lost them in a poker match with Steve Jobs back in 2002. To be fair, Steve Jobs should not have been playing poker with a four year old.
-She can change her appearance at will.
-Bailey is one part of a five person crime fighting team that when fused together forms a giant super-being. She is the right leg.
