Synopsis Edit

Myra demands commitment from Urkel or else. When he refuses and asks her to leave him alone by giving him time to decide, Myra leaves in a crying fit believing Steve just wants her to go away. He must now turn to Laura for advice in helping him calm Myra down. With Laura's help, Steve explains to Myra that while he had no intentions in breaking up with her, he also makes it clear that if they continue dating: she can't force him to commit to her right away and asks that she respects his decision when he asks her to give him space.

Waldo constantly worries that other boys have their eyes on Maxine, causing him to go into a jealous fit. When Maxine threatens to dump Waldo for humiliating her, he realizes how overzealous he has been and apologizes for his behavior.
