Mindy goes to the kickoff 'party,' but is surprised when it is a lecture. She does not make a good first impression with her classmates or the professor, Danny's former classmate.
When Mindy goes to drop Danny off at the airport he notices that she is even more nervous about the fellowship though she insists that Danny not call in any favors.

Danny and Rob, Mindy's professor, have a happy reunion. They meet Rob's boozy wife, Barb, who obviously is not happy in her marriage. Danny wants Rob to like Mindy and talks her up. When Danny thinks Mindy is fooling around under the table with him throughout the dinner, it is actually Rob's wife

Morgan wants the team to give up and go home, but Peter sees how much Tamra is yelling at her team so he pulls her aside. Tamra admits to having feelings for Morgan and how Peter won't understand.

After, one of Tamra's teammates asks her out.
Rob tells Mindy how much he enjoyed their date, but Mindy tells him she doesn't want special treatment because of Danny.
