Marcus takes a lesson from George and throws a pretty girl the Jefferson curve, which is to bend the truth to get what you want and Marcus tells the girl that he's Lionel. This eventually leads George and Louise to believe that Lionel is having an affair.
Customer Natalie Parker visits Jefferson's Cleaners one day and meets Marcus, who invites her out to a date. To make Natalie think that he is not just a clerk in a cleaning store, Marcus gives her the impression that he is George's son. After she starts dating Marcus, she meets George when she went to the store to pick up her dry cleaning, and tells him she is dating his son. As a result, George thinks Lionel is having an affair with Natalie.
