Step by Step: Pain in the Class

Frank's arch enemy has him reluctant to attend their high school's 25th anniversary reunion. A blow hard named Roy Tucker, who's only joy seems to be in reliving his past wins over Frank. Though once the reunion begins a secret comes to light that may, for the first time, give Frank the advantage.

Meanwhile, JT and Rich throw a pay-per-view watching party to get the money to buy a new TV. Unaware they are also responsible for babysitting Lilly. Lilly later disappears when JT won't pay her attention.

Episode Quotes
Rich: You know JT, should I feel guilty that I'll be looking at girls in thongs considering that I'm going out with Dana?
JT: Look at it this way. It doesn't matter where you work up your appetite as long as you come home for supper.

(Carol walks into the kitchen in a fancy dress)
Carol: What do you think?
Frank: Well I can't tell you cause I have an X-rated opinion in a PG rated room.

Al: OK, let me get this straight. You're not going because this one guy out did you?
Frank: No it's not just that. He forced me to arm wrestle him in front of the whole football team. Most humiliating moment of my life.
Karen: Because he beat you?
Frank: No, not just because of that. After he beat me the team ran my jock strap up the flag pole.
(Al and Karen begin laughing)
Frank: It's not funny I was still in it.

Frank: Yes that makes 20 customers for our pay-per-view, Booty Blowout. Watching girls in bikini's and making money doing it, call me corny but I'm proud to be an American.

Rich: JT I can't believe it, you were actually able to out smart a 7 year old.
JT: Hey she's almost 8.
