Will has a blind date with Dee Dee, a daughter of one of Uncle Phil's clients. She's not as slim as the girls Will usually dates, but he and Dee Dee have a lot of things in common and really like each other. However, her weight keeps Will from asking her to the school dance. When friends of him ridicule her and he doesn't stand up for her, Dee Dee doesn't want to see him anymore. Meanwhile, Carlton's suit for the dance is ruined and he desperately tries to find a new suit. Uncle Phil has back trouble. Written by
