Brook Lynn tells her to go find Dillon and remind him of the dance and ask him to go with her. Brook Lynn notices some guy standing outside Kelly's and motions for Georgie to look behind her.

Georgie leaves out the back way. Meanwhile, Dillon complains to Maxie about how they plan to get the pervert on campus without using him to do it. Maxie tries to tell him that she feels badly but she wants him to trust her and Jesse to help him. Jesse shows up with a flyer advertising some fraternity party tonight on campus. He tells Maxie they can use that party to bring out the campus pervert and clear Dillon. Dillon doesn't like the idea that Maxie is going to be Jesse's backup because he thinks that makes her a target again. Maxie tells him she is the one that the pervert called to tell her he was going to get back at her. Lucas shows up to tell Dillon that there is a girl named Hollis that wants to meet him. Dillon decides to go with Lucas. Jesse tells Maxie that he needs her to help him set up his sting operation where the party is going to be, with camera and microphone equipment. They are about to leave his dorm to go do that when Jesse's female professor, Miss Taylor,shows up to inform him he is getting an F on his term paper. Jesse claims he wrote that paper himself but the professor thinks someone else wrote it since it sounds too sophisticated and mature for someone his age to have been able to write. Maxie defends Jesse and tells the professor that Jesse is quite emotionally mature for his age but the professor tells him she expects him to be able to take an oral test given by her later on that evening if he expects to pass the class. She leaves and Jesse panics since he never picked up the text book for that class and read even a page in it. Maxie offers to help him get ready and gets a clever idea to do it. Maxie uses the microphone/listening device they are going to use later that night so she can give him the answers from outside to feed through the microphone in his ear. Professor Taylor comes over later. She starts asking him questions for his test and Maxie tells him the answers to most of them but the questions get more complicated and she doesn't know the answer.

Dillon takes her up on her offer but warns her that he has a girlfriend already that he adores. They leave together. Diego and Lucas notice them leave together and Diego makes a comment about how Dillon seems to have no problem picking up girls even though he is suspected of being the campus pervert and suggests the Quartermaine money helps him get away with things in this town. Lucas makes a comment about Diego getting away with things as well having Lorenzo Alcazar as a father. Diego tells him that he isn't ashamed of his father and what he does for a living. Lucas backs off of a potential argument. Diego wonders why they haven't seen Maxie or Jesse at the party downstairs and now that Dillon left there is no one else around. Diego wonders if something is going down tonight and if they are being set up to take the fall for what the pervert did. Meanwhile, Georgie goes back to Kelly's.
