"The Class Eats Moroccan Chicken" -- Lina's friends are disgusted when she cooks a special recipe for her dinner party and they are forced to eat inedible Moroccan chicken to not hurt her feelings, on THE CLASS, Monday, Feb. 5 (8:30-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. James Burrows, one of the series' executive producers, directed the episode with a story by series' creators and executive producers David Crane and Jeffrey Klarik and a teleplay by Steven Molaro, one of the series' co-producers.
Jerry Rice, regarded as one of the greatest wide receivers in NFL history, guest stars as himself. While working on a charity event speech with Yonk at his house, Rice is forced to deal with Duncan and his mother, both huge fans. He also shows his disapproval for Yonk's new healthy eating habits.
Jaime King ("Sin City," "Pearl Harbor") guest stars in a recurring role as Palmer, a former art school classmate of Kat's, now living in her building and dating Ethan. Trent Ford ("The West Wing," "Gosford Park") guest stars in a recurring role as Benjamin Chow, a world famous violinist who is dating Kat.
In their first big event as a couple, Lina and Richie invite their friends to her apartment for a dinner party, but the group is horrified when they realize that Lina's special chicken recipe although made with love, smells toxic and tastes oddly like fish. Meanwhile, Nicole convinces Yonk to eat healthier foods and promises to do the same, but is tempted to cheat on her diet with Duncan.
