Recap

After a close call with bank robbers, Cleveland discovers that Donna knows very little about him. While killing time with the guys by attending an open house, Cleveland discovers he has a secret admirer. After tricking the real estate agent into revealing the name of the house owner, Cleveland learns it is Patty Donner. When he informs Donna, she is amused to remember that Patty was known as "Fatty Patty" in high school. Despite his disappointment, Cleveland heads off to Patty's to find she had lost a lot of weight and is now sexy. Boding, Patty reveals that Cleveland was the only one who had shown her kindness in high school. Cleveland commiserates on how Donna doesn't known him. At Donna's suggestion, Cleveland invites Patty to dinner where Donna is also shocked at Patty's new appearance. However, after Donna suffers from some not-so subtle insults, Donna forbids Cleveland from seeing her again...
