Plot Summary[edit | edit source]

Lynn takes an art class and ALF slips in a food painting of his own into her portfolio. When her teacher Lloyd Rubin sees it, he pretends to like it because he wants to ask her on a date. When Lynn realizes that he is only pretending to like her work, she switches to another class.
