Win a Date with Renee is the 11th episode of Season 4 of Kids Incorporated and 76th episode overall. In this episode, Richie cooks up another get-rich quick scheme...raffling a date with Renee.

Plot SummaryEdit

After opening with "Who's That Girl"; the kids are relaxing as Connie and Richie face off in a game of table tennis (with Kid "calling" the action). Connie ends up winning (though she distracted Richie in the process). Before a protest can be launched; Riley comes bearing posters; then suggests the kids have a bake sale to make money for their own posters.

This causes the gears in Richie's head to begin turning, and after "One Fine Day" he announces his plan: a raffle (much to the guy's fears). Worse yet; he was planning to raffle a date...with Renee, and he's nearly sold out of tickets. Renee then arrives with her suggestion of a car wash when she sees the poster. Not surprisingly, she's not amused (her reaction: "I'm going to clobber him"); setting up "If I Say Yes".

Renee finds and explodes on Richie; angrily demanding Richie get the tickets back (which he couldn't do). Richie is left trying to apologize ("I'm Only Human"), leading to Renee VERY reluctantly agreeing. Richie eventually made enough to get the posters for the band (albeit with an "X" over Richie's face thanks to Renee) and Renee enjoyed her time with the winner: Head of the Class star Brian Robbins. However the others work quickly to stop any further plans from being cooked up on Richie's head ("Only in My Dreams").
