Lauren and Chris are flirting at her soccer match when she mentions to him that she signed up for a knitting class. When Lauren shows up to her first knitting class, she's surprised to find Chris taking the class, too. They ditch knitting and bond at the Empire State Building. As they head home, Chris buys Lauren a knit scarf from a street vendor. Before Lauren could tell her mom the truth about skipping the class, Kate sees the scarf and commends her on a fantastic job. Chris asks Lauren to meet him at the Empire State Building again, but Lauren doesn't show. She feels so guilty about lying to her mom and finally tells her the truth. Kate reminds her of their "no boyfriend" agreement. Kate wants Lauren focused on her educational endeavors. Later that evening, Chris shows up to Lauren's house and tells Kate that he respects her rules and hopes to be able to hang out with Lauren one day. Kate is so impressed with Chris she decides to let Lauren go out with him
