Having read the script, Christine thinks she'll be mixing drinks at a cocktail bar until Ross steers her to her intended spot at a ballet bar. Elsewhere: Lisa gives voice and new meaning to de Vinci's most famous painting. Gourmet food critic Peter Cockroach reviews the ambiance that is Barth;s Burgery. The school football team chafes against changes in uniform due to their sponsorship by the Department of Culture & Recreation, but eventually they adapt to the cultural air and throw a locker room tea party. While Martin's violin does anything but sooth the savage beast in Lance, Kevin aims to fire off a few rounds for the neighborhood from the classic instrument he carries in his own violin case. A class assignment on the classics creates a sudden rash of broken television sets. While Brodie paints Klea in the nude, Kevin's imagination enables him not to go that far with Christine. And Lance mistakes the meaning of Parents' Night at Lisa's ballet recital, much to her humiliation. Written by statmanjeff
