Episode Recap

Shawn and Angela are tired of Cory and Topanga's interference, so they hand them a restraining order, forbidding them to meddle in their personal lives.
Shawn is excited for his first date since his official break up with Angela. He doubles new girl, Kelly, and Cory and Topanga. However, he finds he can't stop thinking about Angela and therefore, he isn't very fun to be around. When Angela shows up to the same restaurant with her date, Ron, Shawn puts on cheerful front, but resumes his sullenness when she leaves.
Angela and Ron perform on Karaoke Night so Shawn decides to sing a song with Kelly. However, the lyrics seem to affect him and when Kelly takes his hand, he quits the song in the middle. "I'm sorry, I can't do this."
Back at the student union, Shawn laments to Cory and Topanga that he's incapable of finding true love. "When you're ready to meet somebody new, you will," Topanga encourages. "I don't want to meet somebody new. I'd screw that up, too," Shawn responds. "I just need time, I need to be alone."
Meanwhile, Eric fills in for Alan at Amy's Lamaze When Alan finally shows up, he admits that he was looking at motorcycles…he's afraid that he'll be too old to play with the new baby.
In the class, one of the ladies goes into labor. The instructor is just a substitute with no real training, but while she panics, Alan takes charge and safely transports the lady to the hospital. Eric tells Alan that these things are what make him a good father-being there and taking care of things.
