Episode Summary

Charles and Buddy are excited about their very first bachelor party. At the same time, a young man whom her parents cannot stand has asked Lila out. Lila is quite desperate to date him and asks Charles for advice and for approval. Unfortunately, his support backfires on them. Lila tries to make her parents see how phony the other guy is they want her to date, and that the young man of her own choice is not trying to impress them with all sorts of lies —— he is honest and sincere. Douglas also has serious problems when he is kissed for the first time by a girl in his class.moreless

  • Lila wants to date a young man whom Stan and Jill do not approve of.

    Lila has a problem. She wants to go out on a date with a certain young man whom Stan and Jill do approve of. Looking to Charles for advice seems like a good idea at the time but Charles is excited that he and Buddy are going to their very first bachelor party and just may have given Lila the wrong advice.

    Lila cannot decide what to do - go on the date against her parents' wishes or date a boy of their choosing whom they consider far more suitable. Watch it and see how it turns out.

    There isn't much that's interesting in this episode except for a guest spot by Matthew Perry (most famous as Chandler Bing from "Friends") other than that, it's rather dull.moreless
