S03E08 The Unbearable Like-Likeness of Gene
Linda is on a diet and is driving everyone crazy. There is a rumor that a girl at their school like-likes Gene. Tina and Louise panic when they realize it must be ultra-obnoxious, annoying Courtney, but Gene is peer-pressed to be her boyfriend. He meets Courtney's dad, a commercial jingle writer with cool tech; and Gene has found a man-crush. When Gene shuts his eyes and covers his ears, Gene feels like he maybe could spend the rest of his life with Courtney... until Gene opens his mouth. Courtney and Gene both suffer heartbreak, but for completely different reasons.
