Erica is failing her film appreciation class, and her only hope for a passing grade is to write a term paper on a movie in one night. Erica has booked a musical performance that evening, so she calls Adam and invites him to D.C. for a visit. Adam brings Dave Kim, Chad Kremp and Sergei along, hoping for a Revenge of the Nerds college experience, but he soon learns that Erica was just using him to get the paper written. After Erica explains to Adam that college is nothing like the movie depictions, she and the guys work together to help her save her show and pass her class. Elsewhere, Beverly writes a resume and ponders the next chapter of her life—a "Bevolution"—which scares Murray because she won't be around to cook and clean as much. He suggests she just change her appearance rather than make a life change, so Bev gets a permanent hairdo. Although it looks horrible on her, Murray insists she looks great, but Bev soon catches on to his scheme. Meanwhile, Barry tries to get a home perm, but it does nothing to change the appearance of his already curly hair. Soon, all members of the JTP try perms, making each one look ridiculous.
