Episode Title: "Nobody Puts Baby in a Corner"

In this 1987 blockbuster chick flick, Johnny, the white trash, sexy dance instructor, and Baby, a middle-class doctor's teenage daughter, defy the forces of 1963 social stratification and find twue love. Baby is smart (or, maybe not, given that she is still answering to the name "Baby" at the age of eighteen), but has long been overshadowed by her older, "prettier" sister. In the film's key scene, Johnny publicly declares that Baby's time out of the spotlight is over when he stands up to her father and declares that "nobody puts Baby in a corner." Many hearts go all aflutter at what is one of the most ridiculous lines of dialogue in cinema history. In class-conscious Neptune, at least one overshadowed younger sister's place in the corner is rather more literal.

Logan's obviously been catching up on the hit movies of the '80s. This Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes duet was a huge hit on the back of its use in Dirty Dancing. Sadly, watching does not a dancer make, and when Veronica pulls Logan onto the dance floor, the only dirty dancing that ensues is in the mind of the viewers.
