Plot

In a park, a woman named Monica and her boyfriend Morton are out dating and are about to express their true love. However Monica's dad; a construction worker crashes the date and chases Morton away. Monica berates her father for chasing Morton but her father insists Morton doesn't deserve her and wants a perfect man for her to date. She insists that no man is perfect for her father and decides to date a dork to prove herself to him. Once she sees Jon taking Odie for a walk, she gets an idea.

That night, Jon tells Garfield and Odie about Monica asking him on a date making Garfield suspicious. After Jon gets ready for his date, Odie confirms the event as the cat is left in awe. Just then the episode is interrupted to show the dating history of Jon hosted by Garfield. Garfield explains that Jon has dated so many women over the years and each ending in failure. The longest date Jon has been on was with a women named Cynthia Underburger. On a Friday night, Jon ended up ordering two soft boiled leather shoes and the two had to wash dishes to pay the dinner as Jon forgot his wallet. The next day, Cynthia joined the marines and sailed to Greenland where she was never seen again. The shortest date was on August 9th with Sylvia Finster which lasted about two seconds. Garfield says that Jon tried everything where Jon once signed up for a computer dating service where his date was a robot. One women who Jon tried to call left a voice mail where she instantly rejected Jon. Garfield then concludes that Jon is a dating disaster.

The episode resumes where it left off where Jon is walking to meet his date. Monica meets him at the restaurant and gets his name wrong. Meanwhile Garfield and Odie are spying on them and Garfield is surprised that Monica would want to go out with him. Just then the two overhear Morton talking on the phone with Monica's father telling about Jon who's about to break him in two. Realizing the date is a set-up, Garfield and Odie race into the restaurant to save Jon.

Inside, the waiter recognizes Jon from a previous date and gives him soft boiled leather shoes despite Jon's objections. As Monica tries to continue the date, Garfield swoops in carrying a plate of pasta from another waiter and dumps it on Monica's head. When Jon tries to stop the cat, Garfield dumps another plate of pasta on Monica's head. This results in Jon chasing Garfield out of the restaurant and saving his own life.

When Morton sees Jon running he thinks the plan worked. However he arrived too early and soon Monica's father arrives and gives him a beating. Right then Garfield and Odie bring Jon back into the restaurant and now Jon realizes the date was a set-up as well. After Monica straightens the whole thing up, her father concludes that Jon is more of a dork than Morton is and lets them to be. When Jon wonders what just happened, Garfield says he's lucky that his record and kneecaps are still intact.
