Carol-Ann Jeffers ...

Jazz asks Will to take out his sister Janet, which he is reluctant to until she gets a look at her (he and Uncle Phil assumed she looked like Jazz with long hair). On the date, things seem to be going well until Janet is revealed to not only be a controlling nag, but to have mapped out their entire future before their first date is even underway. When he confronts Jazz about it, he admits that his only intention was to get rid of her because she was getting on his nerves. He suggests that the best way to get her off their backs is to set her up with another sucker - possibly a square cousin. At dinner, Carlton stands up to her and his defensive attitude makes her fall for him. Written by Jerry Roberts <>
