  • Funny!

    Raja meets Mindy, a clingy and needy girl. Justin warns him not to get to know her, but Raja doesn't listen. Soon, Raja finds himself wanting out of that relationship, but she thinks they're in love. Raja tries to end it by saying it's their cultural differences, basically saying that he's Muslim and she's not. She converts to Islam, so he has to be a jerk to break up with her. Gary and Franny meet new neighbors. Ted is a registered sex offender, but they try to accept them.

    This episode was pretty good! There were plenty of funny parts! I can't believe how Ted reacted to Raja. What a hypocrite! This episode gets a 9.0 out of 10!moreless
  • raja deals with a girl from school who is in love with him and franny and gary deal with a sex offender next door.

    although it wasnt the greatest episode in this series,it was still a decent watch for true AIA fans. Raja finds himself mobbed by the affections of a annoying girl from school and his attempt at dealing with the whole scenario is the main highlight of this episode.Although mindy wasnt that great in the start of the episode,her conversion and actions after that were hilarious. The scene in the italian classroom with her parents is not one which people will easily forget and still has me laughing when i think of it. the whole deal with the sex offender character seemed a little out of place until the point of prejudice turned up in the end.moreless
