But will his plan work?
After lying his way out of helping Sally with a school art project so he can spend the night with George, John Paul is caught with Courtney red-handed by Sally having a boozy lunch with George.
When Sally reveals that she was going to recommend him for a promotion at a prestigious school, John Paul feels guilty and tries to make it up to her - but a seductive George keeps getting in the way and distracting him.
Later, fun and games lead to injury for George and he visits the hospital with a suspected broken nose. He enjoys making Peri think that John Paul was to blame for his injury.
And when Courtney asks if John Paul has been hurting him, George is shocked, but does nothing to get rid of her fears.
