Last season kicked off with a tribute to The Breakfast Club. The show has also paid tribute to Ferris Beuller’s Day Off, Dirty Dancing and Risky Business, as well as dozens other movies and shows Adam has mentioned throughout the show.

In “Weird Science,” the A-plot finds Barry struggling to find a new girlfriend after Lainey said she was leaving high school early to start college in Georgia. So he enlists his nerdy younger brother Adam to create a girlfriend for him. Meanwhile, Beverly and Murray learn that their daughter Erica’s college roommate is also named Erica. As expected, Beverly has a hard time letting her only daughter go.

Barry’s relationship with Lainey is being put on the back-burner this season, as AJ Michalka will no longer be a series regular.

“That relationship between Barry and Lainey was really important, especially in grounding [Barry],” executive producer Adam F. Goldberg told TVLine. “I loved exploring the idea of what happens when a guy like Barry is madly in love and has a serious girlfriend. But [with] these family shows, the kids grow up, and all the dynamics eventually change, and that’s one that had to change.”
