Jess (Zooey Deschanel) isn’t convinced that Winston (Lamorne Morris) can successfully go undercover as a parent at her school — but he proves her wrong in an exclusive clip from the upcoming episode, where Winston poses as James Wonder, a landscape architect who decides he’s a widower once he spots Genevieve (Lucy Punch) eyeing him.

“She got squished,” he explains of his fictional late wife.

Jess, sensing that things are about to go downhill, then tries to get Winston — sorry, James — to walk away, but one of his new friends wants to ask for some advice on how to take care of his “stubborn backyard.”

Watch the clip above to see what kind of wisdom Winston has about that issue, and see the full episode when it airs Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. ET on Fox.
