Episode Recap

When Jennifer arrives home with her learner's permit in hand and announces that she'd like Elyse to teach her how to drive, a somewhat miffed Steven begins to needle them both about women drivers. With continuous prodding, however, Steven finally gets his way and takes over as Jennifer's driving instructor.

Meanwhile, Skippy confesses to Alex and Lauren that he is having problems relating to women. When Lauren realizes how troubled he is about being rejected, she offers to help Skippy by inviting him to her lab to access his psychological profile. But during the resulting session, Skippy finds it so easy to talk to Lauren that he becomes completely smitten with her.

Oblivious to Skippy's crush on her, Lauren sets out to find a compatible mate for him and ends up arranging a blind date for Skippy with a sweet girl named Pippi. As she and Pippi join Alex and Skippy for dinner, it becomes obvious that Skippy only has eyes for Lauren. The situation becomes even more complicated when Skippy steals a kiss from Lauren and winds up with egg on his face.
