When Dana comes to town, Adam wants to spend a romantic weekend together and starts with their "greatest hits" of their childhood toys and food. But when that doesn't go over well, he announces they're going to their first concert. But, thinking it's a rock concert, Dana loses interest when Adam gets tickets to his favorite "rock god", "Weird Al" Yankovic , who inspired him to write his own parody songs , including one about Barry in the tune of Wang Chung 's " Everybody Have Fun Tonight ".
At the concert, Dana's lack of enthusiasm shows when Adam meets his "comedian muse" and picks him over her. After seeing Adam and Dana's relationship on the rocks, Beverly demands Al put on a private concert, but he offers advice instead, and she makes a photo slideshow of their memories. The couple realizes that not only did they grow apart, they grew up and don't get each other anymore.
Meanwhile, Barry gets involved in school and signs up to be a peer counselor when Mr. Glascott tries to dissuade him. Barry thinks this means he is a licensed medical psychiatrist and he can advise anyone on anything and they have to listen to him.
He starts with JTP's personal issues and gives such horrible advice that Erica steps in, helping them behind Barry's back. She becomes a peer counselor herself after Glascott bribes her with an A in gym. Barry then challenges her to a "counsel-off" and they notice signs of depression in Murray and in order to win, they must be the first one to fix him.
In the end, they do make Murray smile and are even there for Adam after losing his first love. Vainly thinking he has a shot at his school's Student Athlete of the Year award, only to be dejected and embarrassed when it goes to a much more deserving classmate, Barry resolves to be a champion at something.
Inspired by English ski jumper Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards , he sets his sights on multiple Olympic events, but his attempts to succeed at any of them fall flat. Adam, who has always looked up to his older brother's athletic "prowess", notes that Barry is outstanding at "Ball Ball", a home game the two invented.
Worse, Barry expelled Adam from the club, causing Adam to reconsider the hero worship he's always held for Barry. When Adam angrily voices this to Barry, renouncing him in the process, Barry is despondent and gives up all sports. When Erica reveals to Adam that his worship meant a lot more to Barry than he thought, Adam is convinced to build his brother's spirits back up, and the two boys hold their own Olympics they call "Home Games", featuring every home game they've ever created.
Their ridiculous events include, "umbrella boarding", "stationary peddling" and "stair luge". At home, Adam makes his big brother into, "Barry the Eagle", and he wins all the "gold" medals. Elsewhere, Murray has become a penny-pincher at home, and Beverly soon discovers that the furniture store is failing when she sees Murray's employee Vic working in a Photo Hut. Beverly suggests that Murray start selling futons , a hot new furniture item from Japan, but the too-proud Murray refuses her help.
Murray eventually caves when Pops tells him a story about his past struggles in the furniture business and getting help from his family. So, for the first time, Murray breaks down and accepts help. Soon, Beverly starts working at the store and easily talks customers into purchasing futons.
After watching their favorite movie, Dirty Dancing , Erica and Beverly are determined to give the next school dance a Dirty Dancing theme. When Erica makes her case to Principal Ball, however, he strictly forbids it, and insists the dance be a s-themed "soda pop hop" — that is until he sees Beverly leering through his office window, and he caves to avoid a confrontation with her.
Meanwhile, Barry is equally determined to have a Footloose theme, insisting that it's a much better dance movie than Dirty Dancing. Murray, who has long resisted dancing, is convinced by Pops that he should try to learn for the sake of Beverly's happiness. Beverly soon backs off from her support of Erica's Dirty Dancing theme when she realizes the dancing may include sexually-oriented "grinding".
She pleads her case to Principal Ball, asking that he not tell Erica who called off the theme, but Principal Ball has left the PA system on for the whole school to hear Beverly's pleas. Though embarrassed, Erica is not deterred, stating she and her friends will show up at the dance with every intention of retaining their original theme. At the dance, Geoff Schwartz is determined to be Patrick Swayze to Erica's Jennifer Grey and recreate the iconic "body lift" scene from the film, but it fails badly.
Beverly, who is there as a chaperone, ultimately shows support for her daughter, and Erica and Geoff try the dance move again, this time with success. The kids all start dancing, and even Murray, who is also chaperoning, asks Beverly to dance. After seeing how Dave Kim stocked his huge cassette tape collection by getting "12 tapes for a penny" from the Columbia House music service, ordering several times under phony names, Adam tries to do the same.
He tries to rope in Erica on the fraud scheme, but she backs out, not wanting to get in trouble, while also telling Adam that Columbia House will lock him into a contract to buy many more tapes at full price. Beverly finds out when a delivery man keeps bringing boxes of 12 tapes to the door, addressed to strange names that Adam made up, and she blames Erica, given all the trouble she's been in before.
She grounds Erica for a month and makes Adam a banana split, even though Erica maintains her innocence and Adam tells the truth. Beverly assumes Adam is lying to cover for Erica, but she soon finds out about the real scheme after Pops orders tapes and says he saw Adam doing it.
Erica, sick of being blamed for everything, attempts to do something worse to tick off her mom: shoplifting with her friend Carla. Beverly soon finds out after Erica gets sent to mall jail, but it turns out Erica backed out and only Carla actually shoplifted.
Erica tearfully tells her mother she is tired of always being seen as the bad seed and that Beverly has no idea how much it hurts to be labeled as that by her own mother. Beverly feels awful and Adam gives her a Chicago tape to mend their relationship, with successful results. Meanwhile, Barry is trying to win over Bill Lewis and fails to do so.
Murray says all dads despise their daughter's boyfriends and tries to help Barry win over Bill, but it fails when Barry sees Bill treating Lainey's ex-boyfriend nicely. In the end, Barry, with Murray's help, wins over Bill during a round of golf. Barry goes to great lengths to avoid taking the PSAT test. He is further disappointed to learn that Lainey and all three of his fellow JTP members are planning to take the test, chastising all of them for giving up on their farfetched dreams.
He finally confides in Murray that he is afraid to take the test because he thinks he will fail. He further tells Murray that he's afraid his friends and girlfriend will move on to great things, leaving him behind. Murray assures his son that he will do fine in life, saying he's never known anyone whose mind works like Barry's. Meanwhile, Adam is heartbroken over his breakup with Dana, and is desperate to find another girlfriend.
After viewing a David Copperfield special on TV, however, he is convinced that the ladies love magicians. A cute girl at school hires him for her little brother's birthday party, making Adam believe he was right. He convinces Beverly to buy a bunch of expensive items from a magic shop by telling her it is something they can do together. Adam makes Mom his assistant, but later fires her when his friends say it isn't cool to have his mom helping him.
At the birthday party, Adam's magic tricks are going poorly, until Beverly arrives to rescue his act. Adam doesn't get the girl, though, as she is in ninth grade and says she cannot date a middle-schooler.
Beverly later finds Adam crying over a picture of him and Dana, and he confides in her that he is afraid he will never find a relationship like that again. Beverly consoles him that he will, because Adam's taught her there is plenty of magic in the world.
Adam and his nerdy friends are sick and tired of always being humiliated athletically and being picked last for team sports in gym class. But Adam talks to Coach Mellor about it and he is made team captain. The thing is, it makes sense. There are a lot of oddities that make up the perfectly composed, suit-clad, nimble fingered Hannibal Lecter.
He opens his eyes after a few minutes to Google still mocking him. Will pictures her sipping a can of Diet Coke on her desk while finishing off the last of her sandwich and watching reruns of Judge Judy on Youtube. He makes a mental note to tell her to wipe off the crumbs off her face before going back to class. Will grits his teeth.
I mean something really off the charts. Alana sighs impatiently. At least, he thinks it is impatience. What would you do? Silence on the other end. He almost drops the phone. Alana seems to have recovered too. Will splutters.
Alana almost squeals. Hannibal was worried about your tendency to run away from labels. How did you know? Alana scoffs. They just have a… different idea about the type of food they want to consume.
She makes a sad noise at the back of her throat. He relents. She really needs to stop wolfing down those tuna sandwiches and Diet Coke. He knows he needs to follow through because Hannibal and Alana are closer than a pair of giggling teenagers. Will loves Alana, really. Will gulps. Will takes a deep breath.
The only way he knows that Hannibal is shocked by the question is because the serving spoon hits the table with a loud clang. Hannibal graciously sits down on the chair opposite him and wipes his mouth delicately.
What the hell, Hannibal? I wish everyone could hear the recording, but I'm sure you'll benefit from his thoughts here. Some people get frustrated, which tells you something about how the individual will be as an employee under pressure. So we try to be a little bit aggressive and see what people are made of.
I had somebody come in the other day with a product idea he thought we might be interested in that he had proved out a bit. You really have to work at it over time to see through the person. Really, who gives a s about that? I learn by asking a person what the one thing they want me to remember about them is. For a business like ours that is growing rapidly, we need people who show creativity and can take the initiative. I hired somebody one time who bought a distressed ice cream shop in high school and turned it around over several summers, eventually selling it and paying for college with the money he made.
SLH: Is it challenge to make that kind of hiring approach repeatable and spread your philosophy throughout the organization? Our HR department tends to handle the people coming right out of school, but even then I tend to go to a lot of the student career fairs so I meet most of them too. The people in hiring roles here have a pretty good idea of the type of outside-the-norm person we look for, because we talk about it all the time.
My inclination is to believe that never finding love would be a game-changer for most of us. Without the fear of ending up alone, the opportunities open to you would become endless. You could live on every continent. You could scale the corporate ladder. Love holds us back in an infinite amount of subtle ways that perhaps we do not even realize.
And the guarantee of its absence may just be the ultimate sense of liberation. That we can spend our lives developing ourselves, challenging ourselves, pampering ourselves and building ourselves up to be bigger, more capable people than we ever once hoped to become. We could construct our soul mates in ourselves. Live your life as if you are the love of it.
You are going to be the person who shows up to accept your rewards. We have to start appreciating all that we bring to our own lives. And let everybody else come searching for you.
