Episode Summary

Just Us Kids
From Showtime: Backstage, following a great show with guest star Paul Stanley of the rock group KISS, it's revealed that Chris has never thrown a party. A few days later, when news comes that Chris's latest album has gone platinum, he seizes the opportunity to reciprocate by throwing a big celebration party. Skeptical that he can pull it off, Yola offers to help. But Chris is still worried. Party costs are mounting. Worse still, Chris is convinced that no one will show up. Meanwhile, as Yola begins dating her high school sweetheart Kyle, she's cautiously optimistic that this may be something more than the usual six week, doomed from the start, romance. When she's forced to find alternate supervision for her dog Jimi, Kyle pulls some strings to get him into the exclusive Greenbriar Canine Day Care. But Jimi's expulsion from doggie day care the very same day could have serious repercussions for Yola's blossoming relationship. Anson's father, Professor Drubner, begrudgingly extends an invitation to his son from the dean of the college, to teach a master class in music. While there, he overhears his dad's boring class lectures and the insults of many of his students. Troubled, Anson is forced to see his domineering father in a new, vulnerable light.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • 1.  As Anson and his dad leave the college where they both teach, we see a sign behind Professor Drubner's left shoulder that reads "Livermore College." However, in season one's episode 16 "Our Place," we learn that he teaches at Foothill Junior College... (For the record, Las Positas College is in Livermore, CA. Foothill College is located in Los Altos Hills, CA.)

        2.  As if more
        details were required regarding Chris' balcony…  Anson falls off of it in this episode.  Something he couldn't accomplish (in the manner he did,) had it
        been enclosed by glass windows.
