The one where Gordon fears what will happen if he shows up instead of Mike.

Synopsis: Gordon's extreme reluctance to go dancing leads to a baffling and over the top response to Mike's 'no strings attached' comment. The reason it's baffling is that the absurdly high stakes to male-female contact mean that 'rope around his neck' should be 'ring around his finger'.

Summary: This is because Lynn has always had a warped and silly idea of how things work. In the real world, all Gordon would have to worry about is an angry lecture and possible thick ear for 'gadding about' when his family is in dire straits. Here, he's worried about being attacked by the girls' family for impertinence.
