Episode Summary

Mis-Directed Study
Moesha lands a job tutoring athletes. She gets assigned to a promising NBA candidate named Ray Meadows. Ray has to write an English paper. Ray asks Moesha to finish the paper for him because he's too busy with practice and studying plays. Moesha agrees to write it, since they're friends. Dorian sees Moesha's writing Ray's paper and teases her, claiming that he uses the same game with girls at his school. Moesha reconsiders writing the paper and tells Ray that she can not do his paper for him. Upset, Ray tells her that he's not interested in a friendship with her if he can't benefit from it.moreless

  • Moesha helping a basketball player with dreams of the NBA? Didn't we see this already?

    Moesha helps Ray, who has dreams of being in the NBA with his homework. Didn't we see this with Kobe Bryant in season 2? Can we be more original and stop with the smart girl helping hte dumb jock?

    Just another episode where Moesha decided to be a role model and do what is right after getting caught by Dorian. Maybe they should have done the episode with Dorian and the girls he con into doing things for him.moreless
