NOT THAT THERE'S ANYTHING WRONG WITH IT � When Raja (Adhir Kalyan) explains in class how close he feels to Justin (Dan Byrd), the entire high school begins teasing them mercilessly about being a "couple." Horrified that he is more of a target than ever before, Justin turns to Claire (Lindsey Shaw) for help, and she advises him to totally ignore Raja. This strategy backfires when Raja befriends the geekiest kid in school - an 11-year-old genius named "Small Paul" - and Justin finds himself completely alone. Meanwhile, when Claire tries to break up with Jeffrey (guest star Nathan Mitchell), Gary (Scott Patterson) decides he has to get involved. Amy Pietz also stars. Gail Mancuso directed the episode written by Emily Kapnek (#102).
