Lindsay feels confused about her relationship with Nick, but reluctantly agrees to come over to his house while his parents are away for the weekend. Her friends and family only add to her apprehension. Millie warns Lindsay that freaks only date girls who will go all the way, while Mr. Rosso gives her a pamphlet and tells her about his bout with herpes. After Nick sends a rose to the house, Lindsay's parents force her to endure a lecture and hear about her father's first sexual experience during the Korean War. ("I wish I could get that five dollars back," he declares.) Lindsay discovers that she had little reason to worry, as Nick isn't even interested in making out. He serenades her and assures her that he doesn't want to rush things. Sam becomes jealous when Bill is named Cindy's lab partner and works with her after school. Sam is paired with Gordon, an overweight boy with a chronic body odor problem. The two become friends, and Gordon gives Sam advice on getting closer to Cindy. Sam joins the yearbook and gets to spend time with Cindy, only to find that she thinks of him as a "sister." However, he still accepts the role of her confidante...
