Rudy wants to go on a date with Patricia but he needs advice on what to say to her. so his friend alex talks to him and gives him tips. then uncle juan gets a job at steaks steaks y mas steaks where Rudy and Patricia are going on a date. Then their moms show up and they get suspicious.

The theme is to appriciate what you have. Text evidence "your the best homes."

Conflicts-man vs. self. because he doesn't have enough confidence to talk normal with Patricia.

External conflict- man vs. man because his mom was not happy with him going out with an eleventh grader.

my favorite quote is ''WE TALKING LOVE POTIONS QUE NO''
