So when he finds a box of condoms on her nightstand, he moves them out of their apartment in New York City to a house in the suburbs. But all Tessa sees is the horror of over-manicured lawns and plastic Franken-moms. Being in the burbs can be hell, but it also may just bring Tessa and George closer than they’ve ever been.
Official Synopsis: Tonight, new driver Tessa is hired by Dalia to help her stalk her crush, but the plan might backfire when Tessa discovers a mutual attraction with her nemesis’ obsession. Meanwhile, George jumps through hoops to join the local country club.
RECAP: Tonight we begin with George and Tessa, they are waiting in line for her drivers test when Dalia and Dallas walk in. Dalia has already flunked twice. Tessa takes off to go on her drivers test and George is excited. Dallas and George are talking about teaching the children how to drive when Dalia gets called in for her test too.
Tessa passed her test, Dalia failed again! George gives Tessa the keys after she drops him off at the Country Club so Tessa can drive around. George loves the Country Club. He has Noah’s guest pass and he takes full advantage of it. The gentleman from the desk comes in the steam room and tells George his guest pass has expired, he has to leave.
At dinner Noah and his friends are talking about George’s pass expiring and they suggest that he join the club.
Tessa is at the top of her game now at school because she has her license. Dalia got herself a neck brace from her driving test, she requests her services for $70.00 to drive her around. And Tessa tells her make it a $100.00 and buy the gas and she will drive her.
George stops at Noah’s dentist office and asks about Noah not calling the club to give him a reference to join. He tells him he will have to jump thru some hoops.
They gets in the car and Dalia drives Tessa crazy, she tells her that she is not even a good back seat driver. Tessa gets driver’s itch, looks down for a minute and hits another car, it belongs to Scott Strauss. Dalia throws another $50.00 dollars at her to get her a date with Scott.
Tessa gets out of the car and tells Scott that she is not accepting responsibility. Scott tells her that there is no damage so it’s no big deal. She tells Scott all these things about himself and he figures she is Facebook stalking him. She does as Dalia tells her and tells Scott she is not stalking him but Dalia is and Dalia wants to go out on a date with him. Tessa sets up the time and date and tells him they will be there. He says “We”? She explains that she is Dalia’s driver.
Back at the club Noah is there in the steam room when George walks in. He is upset because Noah has not filled out the sponsor section of his application. George and Noah start to fight when the manager walks and throws George out again.
Tessa is talking to Lisa about Scott going out with Dalia. Lisa says he is a great guy and can’t figure out why he would go out with Dalia. Date night comes and George had the car so the girls had to take Dallas’ car, the Bently! Tessa drives them on their date and after Dalie leaves the car, Scott comes back in to get his wallet and tells Tessa that the only reason he agreed to the date was so he could spend more time with Tessa. At school the next day Tessa tells Lisa about Scott Liking her and Lisa is so excited about it.
George’s application is being rejected and he has been dinged so the application is denied, out of the club, he goes again.
Tessa is sitting on the porch with Scott talking about all of his travels. She knew she should tell him they can’t keep meeting up but she just couldn’t.
Noah goes to see George and brings him a membership to the club, he says he had a change of heart. George confesses that getting dinged was probably the best thing because he can’t afford the dues. Noah explains that he put him on as a family member, therefore he doesn’t have to pay dues.
Tessa asks George if he knew who actually dinged him, he said no and wish the person would man up.
Tessa drops by Dalia’s house and finds her making a collage of herself and Scott. Tessa opens up and tells Dalia the truth, that Scott likes her and not Dalia. Dalia gets really upset, she says ‘game on’ biatch!
George and Tessa are at the coutry club having breakfast when the server comes around and tells George that she won’t be able to go out with him now because he is a member. Tessa looks at George and says Ding!!! The server is the one who dinged him from being a member. They laugh about the whole thing and Tessa finds they don’t fit in, but doesn’t care because she has her driver’s license.
