"Clarence Gets a Girlfriend" is the sixth episode in Season 1 of Clarence.
Clarence tries to become a perfect gentleman before a date.
PlotClarence makes a toy person out of clay and puts it on a toy motorcycle. He runs around the room playing with it, then he stops next to Ashley's binder and asks if he can make the toy do a backflip over it.
When Clarence sits next to Jeff and Sumo in the cafeteria, he tells them that he has a girlfriend. Jeff gets so surprised that he spits out his juice and runs into another room. In there, Jeff talks to himself about how he's the best one of the trio so he should've got a girlfriend first before Clarence. In the hall, Clarence and Sumo talks about his date with Ashley, and he asks Sumo what to do. Sumo says that the first thing to do is change Clarence's wardrobe, so Sumo takes Clarence to the Lucky Litter Thrift Store to try on some clothes. Jeff spies on Clarence through the window as he's trying on clothes. After many silly outfits, Clarence soon comes out the dressing room with an outfit that Jeff thinks looks really good. However, Sumo doesn't like it, so he gives Clarence a big purple jacket to wear instead. Outside, Sumo teaches Clarence how to be a perfect gentleman. Sumo pretends to be a fancy lady and it's Clarence's job to figure out what to do when there's a big puddle in the way.
Outside the restaurant, Clarence feels confident, thinking the date will go perfectly as long as he has Sumo right by his side to help, but then, Sumo says he won't be there because it's a date. This makes Clarence very nervous. When Clarence enters the restaurant, he shakes and stutters while he tries to tell the lady who works there that he's looking for Ashley. The lady points him to where Ashley is, and Clarence and Ashley soon take their seats at the table. Clarence reads the menu and orders a pizza with crust inside the crust, and Ashley orders a chocolate milkshake. Clarence reads from the paper Jeff wrote for him and asks her random questions. Ashley soon figures out that he's reading off a paper. When Ashley's milkshake arrives, Clarence sees a picture on the wall of a boy and a girl using two straws to drink out of the same milkshake. This gives Clarence the idea to put an extra straw in Ashley's milkshake, but he accidentally splattered the milkshake all over her.
