Parker constantly takes advantage of situations where he (or his buddies) can benefit. When Frank Lemmer finds himself stuck between a rock and a hard place he turns to Parker. As Musso is trying to hook Lemmer up with her 'unsuitable' (In Frank's opinion) niece, Lemmer cuts a deal with Parker for him to find a more suitable date. As Jerry needs help for an upcoming test that Lemmer can help with the deal seems simple enough. Naturally this simple task for Parker winds up with a series of snags and it seems Parker only worsens the situation. Written by Anonymous

Frank Lemmer and Grace Musso's.... niece?
27 June 2007 | by (San Diego, CA) – See all my reviews

Very seldom does it seem that the focus of PLCL is on Lemmer. This episode finds Lemmer showing actual emotion and has a problem that he knows only someone like Parker could help with. One of the odd things about this episode actually ties the whole plot together. If Parker helps Lemmer find a date (so Lemmer doesn't have to go out with Musso's niece) then Lemmer will help Jerry with his upcoming History test. I realize that Frank Lemmer is a hard-core history buff, BUT finding Jerry stressing about a test to the point where he's worried he won't even pass it never occurs. It's one of those convenient problems that had to of been written in as to make the episode make sense I suppose. After Parker finds himself making the Lemmer problem even worse the solutions he comes up with are pretty witty and funny though, so kudos to that. Basically the episode has some 'faults' in it, but otherwise It's a pretty good episode.
