Tea hooks up with Betty from her school after going to a night club. While she considers it a one-night stand and just wants sex, Betty wants more. Tea considers all the girls she sleeps with boring and doesn't think that anyone matches her. Stanley is being threatened by the drug dealer Dr. Le Dong after losing the weed. Tea's father sets her up on a blind date, unbeknownst to her that it is Tony. The two go on the date, get drunk, dances to (wade in the water), and then hook up. She immediately realizes that it was a mistake. The next day, Betty kisses Tea at school and everyone sees, including Tony who is a bit jealous. Michelle doesn't know that Tea and Tony hooked up. Tea comes into her grandmother's room (Nana) and Nana tells how she was in love with a woman during the time Eisenhower was president and that she couldn't be with her due to the religious and social norms of the day. Tea begins to cry. The episode ends with Tony calling Tea. Tea says it can't work out, but Tony says that he is her match. Betty calls and Tea ignores it, hanging up with Tony as well. She gets up and starts dancing to (wade in the water) on her iPod
