Eddie has joined the ballet class with his girlfriend, Greta and tells his friends about it. To his dismay and displeasure, his closest friends, Waldo and Steve, started laughing in his face about the whole thing. They make fun at the fact that he'll be wearing tights and a tutu. Greta doesn't think it is funny as some of the athletes they know has taken ballet before. It doesn't stop them from constantly laughing at him. Meanwhile, Laura's on and off boyfriend, Curtis, mistakes Harriette for her grandmother, Mother Winslow. She is insulted by his comment and wears younger clothes and a wig to hide her age. He later apologizes to her for the mistake when Laura tells him that was her mother. At the recital, Eddie and Greta begins performing Swan Lake. During that time, Waldo and Steve continue their ongoing laughter, much to the dismay of their girlfriends, Maxine and Myra. Laura is seated next to her parents as Curtis is at work. However the performance doesn't go as smoothly as Eddie... Written by Anonymous
