Uncle Phil has tickets to a sold out game. He is excited to go until he throws out his back looking for Vivian's earring on the floor.
Philip tells Will of a partners relative who is in town and loves basketball. Will meets her, but is taken aback that she is slightly overweight. As it turns out, Will and Dee-Dee have a lot in common and hit it off quite well, though.
There is a dance coming up and the family thinks Will should ask DeeDee but when Will's friends begin to tease him he doesn't ask her. Instead he goes with a slender, but vacuous girl with whom he has nothing in common. Will runs into Dee-Dee at the dance and two sets of staws bring them together.
