Episode Summary

EDIT
Rudy and her friends are determined to get into a 16-and-over club to see a birthday performance by rapper JT Freeze. They also hope to win a drawing and get to dance with him. Rudy tries to con her parents into letting her go by claiming that they will be going to a cultural center. Cliff and Clair learn the truth about the club from Lance, Pam and Charmaine. They admit that it is common for junior high kids to frequent the establishment; and explain that the only real threat comes from "old heads"--men in their late teens or early twenties who hit on the younger girls because they can't get women their own age. Cliff and Clair agree to pay the teens to go to the Exchange in disguise and keep an eye on Rudy. Lance scares away one of the "old heads" who repeatedly approaches the bewildered Rudy, Susan and Danielle. Pam ends up winning the dance with JT. She introduces him to the girls, who make fools of themselves. Rudy and her friends are forced to work at a retirement home as punishment for their deception, while Pam, Charmaine and Lance party with JT at his hotel.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • The last word that Cliff spells out is "XELFER." Flipped around, it spells the word that it was originally supposed to be, "REFLEX."

    • Why would Pam call "old head dudes" guys who are 19-20 years age, when she's a senior in high school (approximately 17-18) and they would only be a year or two older than her? Besides, the club was an underage club and 19-20 year olds would not be able to go to a real bar because they would be under 21, so it makes sense they go to this club. If anything, the club should have carded Rudy and friends.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Cliff: What IS The Exchange Club?Lance: It's just this wack club...
      Cliff: Uh, what?Lance: It's wack, that means it's like, ridiculous! It's this little ol' nothin' club where, like, you're supposed to be 16 to get in, but the little junior high school kids, you know, they dress up, try to look older, and they let 'em in, too! But, you know, they're basically good kids tryin' to sneak out on their parents and they jus'...OHHHH...I ain't in this!Cliff: Well, you are now!

    • Chill: Excuse me, my fair lady, do you know CPR?
      Pam: Why?
      Chill: 'Cause you may just stop my heart.
      Pam: You gotta be kidding.
      Chill: The only thing I gotta be is by your side.

    • Charmaine: (proudly admiring her watch) Look what JT Freeze gave to me.
      Lance: Man, he flung that at you to save his arm.
