Complications ensue the next day, when the assertive Bunny calls Hal and asks him to pick her up for the movies. Flustered Hal blurts out that he will be right over, in spite of the fact that he is too young to drive. Nanny decides to bail out Hal, and she gives him a ride to pick up Bunny. Bunny is confused, and perhaps suspicious as to why Hal isn't driving, but Nanny explains she is driving because that "she loves to drive - even in Los Angeles." While at the movies, Francine, Hal's thirteen year old next door neighbor sits down in front of Bunny and Hal. Francine, who has a crush on Hal, expresses surprise to see Hal with a high school girl. Bunny reacts icily to Francine, and after the movie, refers to her as "a weird little girl." Hal then tries to tell Bunny the truth about his age, but she won't listen. Bunny insists that Hal drive her to an ice cream parlor, and she hops into the car which Nanny left parked outside the theater. Three of Bunny's boorish friends appear and pile into the car uninvited. Hal, feeling the horrible sting of teen peer pressure, starts the car, and prepares to drive, Fortunately, Nanny is nearby and, through her magic, the car sputters and will not move. Bunny's friends leave when they realize nothing is in it for them, and Nanny takes Bunny home. Later that night, Hal feels a pang of conscience, and hires a cab to visit Bunny to tell her the truth about his age. Nanny worries when Hal doesn't come home at a decent hour, and she drives out to find him. Hal meets Nanny outside of Bunny's house and explains that Bunny wouldn't listen when he tried to tell her that he is only thirteen. Nanny intuits what is going on. Bunny appears from the shadows, apparently on her way to a friend's house to study. After a short ride, Bunny disembarks, but leaves her books in the car. Hal's English sheepdog Waldo brings her books to Hal. The books are for junior high school, and Hal confronts Bunny, who sheepishly admits that she is only thirteen. Hal then comes clean himself. The next day, Hal tries to call Bunny several times, but she avoids him. Hal tells his dad the Professor that Bunny "really got hacked" when he told her the truth. Hal learns his lesson about lying, and it dawns on him that Bunny was simply leading him on, thinking he was a big high school dude. Hal proves that he has come to his senses, when he takes Francine to the next dance. Hal finds himself much happier with the true blue Francine, instead of the fickle, status-seeking Bunny.moreless
