Plot Edit

After being pantsed for being jealous of another guy flirting with Laura, Urkel devises the ultimate scheme to win her heart... a potion that will turn him into an ultra-suave ladies man. Stefan Urquelle quickly wins Laura's heart, but it isn't long before she's fed up with his arrogant, narcisstic nature and rather have the irksome nerd back.

Synopsis Edit

After Laura gets fed up with Urkel's mischievous behavior, she tells him that he needs to change. So Urkel devises the ultimate scheme to win her heart...a potion called "cool genes" that will make him cool. Steve drinks the potion and becomes Stefan Urquelle, an ultra-suave, good-looking ladies man, and quickly wins Laura's heart and becomes popular with other girls as well.

Meanwhile, Carl is temporarily pleased when he has a weeks' worth of being Urkel free. That is until he returns with a new plan. After becoming Stefan, he claims that his family started loving him more and introduced him to his relatives.

However when his arrogant, narcissistic traits begin to show, it isn't long before Laura gets fed up and asks to have the irksome nerd back. When Stefan questions why, she admits as annoying as Urkel is, he is more caring towards others. Realizing how insensitive and narcissistic he's been, Stefan complies by eating a tablet (serving as the antidote). Afterwards, Laura is happy to have Steve back and swears she never want to see the shallow Stefan again. Urkel tells her that his cool alter-ego just needs to be renovated and be more sympathetic and kinder.

Trivia Edit

  • This is the first appearance of Urkel's alter-ego, Stefan Urquelle, played by Jaleel White in a dual role. However, his attitude is much different - he is suave and cool, but also shallow and conceited.
  • This is the first time mentioned that Dr. Urkel and Diane began showering Steve with love as Stefan and introduced him to his relatives. This may imply that although nerds, Herb and Diane are very shallow people and prefer Stefan's company over Urkel's.
