Plot Summary

A misunderstanding occurs when Goober applies to a computer dating service. Filling in queries about the number of books he reads monthly, Goober answers thirty. This is true, if comic books count. As far as painting is concerned, he enjoys it. He once painted a barn. As a result, Goober is paired with Dr. Edith Gibson. Even with Goober's new hairstyle, Edith sees through his veneer and they realize the date was a mistake.
