When Teri sees her date to take her, her date tells her that his annoying cousin was sent with him so they had no choice but to take her, then, she decided to go to a space restaurant called PlanetPlanet. When Marvin and Teri's date's cousin have many things in common, they click, and it works for them. However Teri tells Marvin to act normal, but when he exaggerates, the date does not go well.

Teri: No no, Marvin, trust me! If you keep acting the way you're acting, you're going to ruin this date. So just be normal.

Marvin: I'm gonna be normal. I'm gonna be so normal you won't even know how norm-(breaks glasses by accident)

Marvin: That was a very normal accident. (reaches a gumball to Teri Forman ) Want a gumball?

Marvin: It's a classic American love story; boy meets girl; boy bounces with girl; boy goes to the bathroom to expell waste.
