When Alex Keaton desperately needed an 'A' in mathematics, he called upon local child-genius and thirteen-year-old graduate student, Eugene Forbes, to tutor him in private lessons at home.

Alex's plan began to crumble before his eyes when his sister, Jennifer, walked into the kitchen in the middle of one such study session. It was love at first sight as far as Eugene was concerned. With a strong interest in opera, he turned on his charms, as best he could, and invited Jennifer on a date. Furthermore, he gave her a gift in the form of a photograph which he hoped would show off his best side - it's an X-ray of his brain. However, his efforts were for naught. After being turned down on two separate occasions, Eugene was devastated.

Obsessed with Jennifer, by his own admission, he told Alex he could no longer continue to provide lessons. Desperate, Alex quickly arranged a double-date for himself along with Eugene and Jennifer, but only by bribing his sister to attend. The occasion, a party being thrown for Professor Jenkins on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of his tenure, did not go at all well.

Eugene, extremely conscious of the fact of being in the presence of great minds and many of his peers quickly found himself ashamed of his date and embarrassed by her. An argument quickly broke out and Eugene found himself in a situation that he did not know how to deal with. So, being thirteen years of age, he did the only thing he could think of. He threw a tantrum.

After that night, Eugene learned that even though he had the brain of an adult, he was still very much just a child underneath.

"No, I'm not alright. I'm embarrassed, humiliated.... and ashamed."
