Doctor Chris lead them on that he was gay, by calling his old girlfriend by a partner, and that she was a doctor so he called her by doctor. Anya and Riley look at each other and ask other questions, Riley asks what he sees in a guy or a girl, and the doctor awkwardly answers that he tries to find the right girl, and never succeeds. Afterwards, Chris asks why they're asking these questions, and Anya tells them it's for their relationship class, and Chris asks if they're in university, and Anya lies and tells him that they are, and that's their extra class.

At lunch with Holly J., Anya makes a plan that her and Holly J. are going to the same pizza place that Doctor Chris is going to at 7pm. Instead of going up to Doctor Chris and talking to him, Anya makes Holly J. pretend to choke on an olive, so that Doctor Chris can come over and help her. After he does, Anya asks if she can reward him with a thank you dessert. He declines the offer because he is with someone for dinner. The next day at school, Anya and Holly J. call doctor Chris, but Anya hangs up before he answers because she is too nervous. Almost immediately afterwards, Doctor Chris calls back. Anya answers, knowing that if she didn't, it would go to voicemail and he would know it was her.
