Episode Summary

EDIT
While walking down the street, Denny finds an expensive watch lying in the grass. He believes he should take it to the police, but his friends insist that he must give it to his girlfriend, Jade. She is very impressed. However, the police soon track her down and tell her that the watch meets the description of one that was reported stolen. She has to go to the station because she refuses to remove the watch and let them see the serial number. Denny is cleared of all charges because he has an alibi for the time of the theft, but must publicly tell Jade that he found the watch on the ground. She is appalled, and dumps him. Denny decides to seek Cliff's advice on how to win her back, but he only confuses Theo and Denny with a long, pointless story. The guys hang out in the basement because they have no dates. They decide to leave when Cliff shows up and starts in on another story.moreless

    • Unusual Circumstances: When Theo brings that movie up, Mitchell claims it's a remake of a French movie. This is likely an allusion to Dangerous Liaisons, which came out in 1988 and is based on the French novel, Les liaisons Dangereuses.
