    Alex hires a tutor for his college math class and finds out to his surprise that his tutor is a 13 yr old boy genius. Alex begins to find out that he doesn't do anything fun and hasn't met any girls. That is until he meets Jennifer. Eugene is in love with Jennifer but she isn't. He tries to get Jennifer interested in him but she isn't interested. So Alex bribes Jennifer to go out on a date with Eugene. So they end up going to a tenure party at Leland College. While at the party Eugene gets upset when Jennifer is doing what he wants her to do. His age begins to show. Eugene realizes he not a grown up even if he’s smart.

    I thought this episode was very well written and acted.
