When Terrell and Charmaine are harassed by a street gang, Terrell is embarrassed by his inability to defend himself. Dorian suggests he report the incident but Terrell's solution is to start carrying a gun. The gun is discovered in class and Dean Davenport is forced to expel Terrel. Dwayne, upset because he knows Terrell is too good a student to lose, pleads his case to the Dean. Meanwhile, Spencer pleads his case to Kimberly. He's asked her twice to marry him and refuses to take her "no" seriously.
Kimberly explains she simply can't say yes until she finishes her grad school. It's crucial timing and she's worked way too hard to give school anything less than 100% right now. Terrell refuses to give school up. He asks the Dean to allow him to finish his class assignment, a Malcolm X vs. Martin Luther King debate on hate and hope. When Terrell eloquently debates the issue that hate and guns do not solve problems the Dean reconsiders and reinstates him with restrictions.
