Goody Two Shoes is an up-beat, fast-paced character vid that highlights the many eccentricities of Benton Fraser. The vid also contains some slashy moments between Fraser and Ray Kowalski and Ray Vecchio. Taken from all seasons of due South, the clips feature Fraser licking things, performing various death-defying stunts, and generally being weird, intercut with clips of both Rays at first shaking their heads in disbelief, but finally smiling fondly. The official vid summary reads, "Fraser has two Rays...and boy, does he drive them nuts."

"Goody Two Shoes" stands out in part because of its unusual clip choices; potentially overused scenes like the "buddy breathing" incident are kept to a minimum and employed wisely. In her review, Isis says, "The clip choices are brilliant, particularly the mirroring of similar actions from both Ray seasons." Fans have also remarked on the song choice ("Goody Two Shoes" by Adam Ant) as being both catchy and a good match with Fraser.

The vid premiered at Vividcon in August 2006.
