Great Expectations is the eighth episode of A Different World's third season which was first broadcast on November 30, 1989.
Kim and Freddie want to ditch homecoming so they can go to a rap concert instead. Kim's overprotective father strongly forbids the concert. Kim decides to disobey her father's wishes and the girls head out to the concert. The trouble begins when Kim's father pays a "surprise" visit to the dormitory and Kim's not there. He meets Whitney, who spends the entire day with every diversion tactic in the book to cover for Kim. It's no use, Kim's father knows she's not there and he's furious with her. Will he ever let his little girl grow up? For the time being, is does not appear he will. Richard Roundtree special guest stars as Kim's father. Also, Dwayne and Ron fight for space when they both bring their hot homecoming dates back to the pad. The situation calls for an executive meeting as the boys excuse themselves out onto the terrace (the fire escape). Eventually they come back in only to find the ladies have shown themselves out!
