Episode Summary

EDIT
The Contest
AIRED:
Present: Rene and Turk have a spirited disagreement over potential candidates for a Girls At Risk scholarship before Turk finally gives in to Rene's choice; Sara busily plays matchmaker even though Rene vehemently tries to discourage her; Rene's ex-husband comes into town on a three day business trip and tries unsuccessfully to woo her until her resistance finally fails, and they fall into each other's arms; the next morning over breakfast, they agree that although they are great lovers they are not in love with each other, and Rene somewhat reluctantly sends him back home to Houston; M.E. and Colliar struggle to adjust to living in an apartment building with noisy, incense-burning, chanting neighbors as well as airplanes flying closely overhead, a smelly carpet, and plumbing problems. Past: "Bob Goodie's Dance Machine", a TV dance show, is coming to Birmingham and Teresa desperately wants to be one of the featured dancers on the show; in exchange for dance lessons from Rene, Teresa promises to support Rene's campaign to have a Black Studies curriculum at school; when Rene realizes that Teresa is trying to get out of her end of the deal, Rene teaches her a phony dance called the "Choo! Choo!", hoping that she'll make a fool of herself at the try-outs; Rene's plan backfires as Teresa is chosen as one of the cage dancers and takes credit for inventing the dance when she's interviewed on-camera; Teresa's uncoordinated gyrations get her neck stuck between the bars of the cage, to the amusement of everyone present; the next day at school, Rene tells Teresa that her support is no longer needed and that she's a liability to the campaign, now that everyone is making fun of her performance on the show.moreless
