Episode Summary

A Foreign Affair

Jeff falls for a girl, only to make a complete fool of himself in front of her, as per usual Jeff standards. However, his luck appears to be on the rise when he learns that she does not speak a word of English. The two attempt to communicate unsuccessfully, until her interpreter arrives, but only to take her home.

The next night, the foreign girl is back in the bar, and Jeff tries to hold a conversation with her, but misunderstandings lead their conversation in a completely different direction when she believes Jeff is interested in her interpreter, while what Jeff believes to be her name, is in fact something completely different.
