Laura Lee Winslow: This is a geek party.
Steven 'Steve' Quincy Urkel: Well of course it's a Greek party, it's a sorority!
Laura Lee Winslow: No no no, a GEEK party, as in nerd, doofus.
Steven 'Steve' Quincy Urkel: Allison, is that true?
Allison: Look, we're just having a little harmless fun.
Steven 'Steve' Quincy Urkel: When you're hurting other people it ain't harmless. I'll tell you something else, Allison, I may not be the most trendy guy on campus, or the best looking and I'm CERTAINLY not the most coordinated. But I like myself, and that makes me cool.

Revenge of the Nerd (#8.14)
10 November 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The sorority Laura is about to join hold a geek party where they invite the nerdiest guy and announce the inner who happens to be the worst one. But Laura comes on time and warns the guys.

Carl tries to be friends with the neighbor in order to be a positive example to the kids. He ends up finding out that he is missing his ex wife.

The geek party had some funny moments, but not funny enough. And really the title is misleading. There is no revenge but Urkel's usual preachy monologue on how to be a better person.

The Carl story made me cringe as well. Apparently wanting to have a wife who works is a mistake. Even though I would say couples who want the same kind of family structure are more likely to be happy than the ones who just give in
