It's the first day of school and Jamie is reluctant about going, being the "new kid on the block", she's afraid that when she goes to the cafeteria, she will have her fish sticks and since she doesn't know anybody, she will eat alone and is using the excuse that Paul doesn't want her to go. Paul, along with Lisa Ira and Fran, throw a small surprise party that morning for Jamie's first day of school. Jamie is ready to go, and Paul finds an envelope containing her prepayment for tuition and registration that he forgot to mail. Paul finds out from the college, that he can pay the tuition today, so he decides to rush to the college with Ira and has Fran and Lisa stall Jamie. When Paul and Ira arrive at the college, they pay the tuition, but they find out that each course card must be signed by the department head. Paul enlists Ira, Fran and Lisa to go to the department heads; Paul for intermediate French, Lisa to logic, Fran for Psychology, Ira to Ethics as they all have to pose as Jamie and beg, bribe and outwit each department head for their signature and get Jamie registered, before she arrives.
