While Eddie tries to date a girl that his friends think is undesirable, Laura tries to get Maxine out of a date with Ted that she has set up. At the dance, Eddie firmly stands up for his decision to keep dating Melissa because he believes in the quality of the girl is far more important than the quantity and calls out Weasel for wanting a girl for her looks more. During the end credits, Steve and Maxine shares a dance together after Ted and Laura make up. Meanwhile, Carl gives Harriette exercise equipment for her birthday, to no surprise, it makes her feel worse. He immediately returns the trampoline and buys her a diamond bracelet to make up for his insensitivity. Written by Anonymous

Muskrat Love (#4.11)
29 June 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is time of the school dance. Laua wants to go with Ted but she didn't forgive him yet so she lets Maxine ask him to go on the dance. At the same time Eddie gets invited by a really sweet girl, yet changes his mind when his friends make fun of this because she is very uncool, just like Steve Urkel.

I really liked the school carnival scenes. Urkel with the water basin, Laura at the kissing booth (and the "shift change"!) and Melissa being a "psychic" for Eddie

Harriet getting upset over the weight loss gifts from Carl was funny as well. Not a bad episode
