In "Date Night" a father learns a valuable lesson about trusting his teenage daughter.
As the episode opens, Cathy is trying to convince her parents that they do NOT need to meet Jerry, her date for the school dance. That would be embarrassing for her and unnecessary--but her father disagrees. The dance is her first big night out, and he wants to make sure that Jerry is worthy of her.
Cathy relents, and on the night of the dance, Jerry arrives to pick her up. Her father isn't impressed with sixteen year old Jerry and his conversational skills, but he allows his daughter to go--as long as they come back shortly after midnight. Cathy and Jerry reluctantly agree and then leave for the dance.
Then as her father waits for them and the night stretches on, he becomes more and more disturbed by the things that could be happening...
