Ethan Daniels lives in Pennystown, a small community in the middle of nowhere. His interactions with the ladies has been nearly non-existent. As such, he misinterprets many innocent situations to be come-ons. For instance, while working at the Teenie Weenie, Pennystown's grocery store, Howard and Ying-Ma McCallister's daughter asks Ethan to squeeze her melons, which he interprets as grabbing her breasts. (She clearly means her cantaloupes.) Later at the bar, the town flirt sits on Ethan's lap and tries to get him out of a funk. Ethan takes the gesture to mean that she wants to sleep with him. Hoping to make his ex-girlfriend jealous, Ethan kisses Alexis. She flips out and sends Ethan into a tailspin.
