Episode Guide
"Introduction to Film"


The Spanish students are paired to create simple dialogues; Jeff is stuck with Pierce after an attempt to be paired with Britta backfires. Attempting to bond with Jeff, Pierce instead drives him away. Shirley and Annie mount a student protest after Britta tells them of anti-journalist violence in Guatemala, though Britta eventually admits she usually does nothing more than be outraged by such causes. Joining the protest in order to impress Britta, Jeff is exposed by a drunken Pierce, then makes it up to him the next day by performing the ridiculously elaborate dialogue his partner had written ... an act of sacrifice that ends up impressing Britta more than his fake protest.
