Episode Summary

Three Guys, a Girl and a Conversation Nook
Ben is disappointed to learn Luke tricked Seamus into signing his straight "C" report card. Ben relays this to his friend, Liza, the dean of NYU, along with his fear that Luke won't be able to get into his dream school -- which just so happens to be NYU. Liza persuades Ben to teach an architectual course there with the side perk that it'll be easier for Luke to get in with poor grades if his father happens to be faculty. One of Ben's new students, Sara, tells Ben how much he inspired her not to drop the class. Ben finds out the sad truth -- Luke doesn't want to go to NYU anymore, he wants to go to the U of Hawaii. Sara changes her major to architecture, and freaks out when Ben tells her he's planning to quit because of his son. But Liza manages to talk him out of it. Alex and the company foreman, Carl, tell Ben he should make a move on Liza. Ben decides to let go of his dream of both father and son going to NYU. Seamus enrolls in Ben's class -- where he disturbs things by taking pictures -- to help Ben fulfill at least one father-son dream. Meanwhile, Seamus moves a chair from the bedroom to the living room, creating what he calls a "conversation nook."moreless

    • NOTES (3)

      • The title is a play on words on Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place, which aired an hour and a half earlier at the time -- and had long since been retitled Two Guys and a Girl.

      • Angela Goethals' name is misspelled in the closing credits as Angela Geothals, while Sabrina Lloyd's name is deleted from the opening credits.

      • The series returned to the schedule with an overhaul. Sabrina Lloyd was out as fast as she was in, and George Wendt (Cheers) and Christine Ebersole (Madigan Men's predecessor, The Cavanaughs) were thrown in as a sure fire way to just boost those sagging ratings through the roof. This is also the last episode broadcast for which Cindy Chupack is credited as executive producer. Chupack, who rumor has it was disgusted with ABC's pointless tinkering, exited the show. Co-executive producers Richard Dresser, Marc Flanagan and Tom Leopold succeeded her in the executive's chair. But they only had two episodes to show their stuff before ABC "savior" Regis succeeded all of them. Chupack's production company continued to co-produce the episodes after she left, although it's uncertain to what extent.
