|List of ''A Different World'' seasons/episodes|
Whitley decides to spend some time with on of her students. Meanwhile, Ron and Freddie throw a dance marathon in their new blues club.
Whitley agrees to baby-sit a prankster student, Deshawn, for the weekend. She thinks it will be a good opportunity to turn the student into a lady. Deshawn is always into mischief, such as rigging the phone and radio not to work. Meanwhile, Freddie holds a dance marathon at Ron's club to raise money for a political cause. What Freddie doesn't know is that Ron plans to keep most of the proceeds for himself.
It takes Dorian, the marathon winner, to donate his prize money before Ron feels guilty and changes his mind. Back at the Wayne residence, Whitley's at her wits' end when dinner is spoiled because the electronics went haywire from Deshawn's meddling. Whitley is close to being over Deshawn, but when she starts working on Dwayne's computer, it's obvious she's a lot brighter than Whitley thought. When Deshawn's dad comes to pick her up, his talk with Whitley points out the importance of looking beyond first impressions to see the capabilities of young kids.
