Phil learns that his real estate class will be cancelled if any additional students drop it. So, he turns on his powers of charm and flattery to keep one particular student, Paige, from leaving while Luke asks her out by inviting her over to dinner. Meanwhile, Jay may unknowingly be flirting with the mother of Joe's classmate and tries to set boundaries.
Phil learns that his real estate class will be cancelled if Paige, one student, quits. He convinces her to stay by telling her that he assures office hours at his home. Little does he know is that Paige and Luke are in couple. At the same time, Claire learns that Luke will drop out his history class because he has a paper to submit about Monroe's doctrines, a paper Claire made several years ago.
Paige meets Phil at his home and by a Vaudeville's play, Luke finally does not drop out and Paige reveals that Phil was the man of her dreams.
Also, Jay has fun with his new friend, a single mother at school. But Gloria's jealousy could destroy his new relation, or Gloria just could show up in order to see if Joe correctly wears his eyepatch in order to correct his lazy eye.
And, Mitch and Cam have another argument in which Cam tells Mitch he does not enjoy life, which turns out to be true, as Mitch is the only dad not to participate at A Fundraiser. Mitch gives in and agrees to play the bee in Cam's performance but his clumsiness makes him a fool of himself again.
