Having befriended her student Cleo (Maude Apatow), Hannah spends time with her outside of school, even convincing her to get a painful-looking frenulum piercing. Later, Hannah approaches Fran to apologize for ruining their date but he rebuffs her, implying that she's too dramatic for him. Meanwhile, Shoshanna helps Ray amass local support for his upcoming campaign to run for a seat on the Brooklyn city council and is upset to learn that he is in love with Marnie. Deciding to follow Jessa's advice, Shoshanna tries to be sexually forward on her date with Scott. Marnie gets angry with Desi when she learns that he spent their entire $2,000 record label advance on guitar pedals. He later apologizes and proposes to her, and she accepts. Elsewhere in Michigan, Hannah's father Tad comes out to her mother Loreen, who reacts badly. At a dinner party in celebration of her new tenure, Loreen gets upset when Tad toasts her. She leaves the table and is seen rebuffing the advances of Avi (Fred Melamed). When Hannah calls her parents to rant about Fran, Loreen bluntly reveals to her that Tad is gay.
