Storyline

Betty is excited to be chosen as tutor for the football team. Her enthusiasm wanes when she is teamed up with Muley Orkin, a social awkward young man. The tutoring goes badly as Muley has concentration issues and is clearly infatuated with Betty. Although she is dismissive of his advances she is pleased to hear succeed in a game. After the game Muley stops by and ask Betty to a dance, because she already has a date and turns him down. After a group of girls visit the house looking for Muley, Betty decides she needs to protect Muley and agrees to change her plans and go with him. At the dance Muley begins have a change of heart over Betty who he sees becoming more like his mother. Eventually Muley sees another girl at the dance and abandons Betty for a more suitable date.
