  • Episode Description
  • In the ninth season premiere, a now-grown Simon appears to be getting extremely close to his new girlfriend, Georgia (guest-star Rheagan Wallace), causing Eric and Annie to suspect they are having sex. Simon's new attitude of being comfortable in the house in his old bedroom alone with Georgia and getting caught by Annie only spurs Annie and Eric to begin grilling Simon about possible sex. When the truth finally comes out, Eric and Annie are scandalized and try to follow the couple when they are out on a date at a fancy restaurant. Meanwhile, Kevin worries that mother-to-be Lucy may be in denial about her pregnancy when she refuses to go shopping for maternity clothes---even though her pants keep falling down. Also, Matt returns home for a visit and is instantly pulled into the family drama, especially regarding Simon and the Georgia situation as he feels Eric and Annie are not handling it the right way. Lastly, newly high school freshman Ruthie gets in trouble at school when she decides to pull down Martin's pants in front of everyone as a prank. Plus, the twins end up in major trouble as well in their first day at kindergarten.moreless

  • The new season is finally here and with many changes---all of them good so far, and with reason. First off, the producers have listened to fans (like myself) and trimmed down a very large cast from last season---Four non-Camdens are gone (Chandler, Peter,

  • Quotes (13)

    • Matt: Europe doesn't like us (United States) right now.

    • Martin: I know what really happened, she pantsed me in front of my friends and a hallway filled with students, all because I didn't give her a ride to school. She just wanted to embarrass me. Eric: Ok, but if you followed what I was saying about the brain, she wasn't probably thinking at all, just acted on impulse. And it was childish and no one saw the humor in it, and now Ruthie's upset that she did it and she's embarrassed. Martin: She's embarrassed? What about me? I mean, I know I'm not your son, but I expected a little sympathy and understanding. But hey, maybe your brains not working either! Maybe your whole family has brain problems!

    • Matt: How are you doing? Lucy: I was doing fine until someone started sharing our pregnancy with my brother. Matt: I think that your pants fell down! Lucy: Ahhhh! (after he told her that her pants fell down)

    • Annie: Are you having sex with Georgia? Simon: You know what Mom, I'm gonna plead the 5th Amendment. Annie: I need a time out, you know, we'll continue this when your father gets home.

    • Ruthie: Look I regret that... Martin: Yeah, you regret that?... Ruthie: I regret that you wouldn't give me a ride on my first day of school and you have absolutely no sense of humor.

    Trivia (6)

    • Did Ruthie skip another grade at some point in the series because in this episode she starts high school but in the first season she starts prekindergarten and then skips to the first grade in the next season but if she did not skip any other grades she should technically be in the eighth grade at this point according to the calculations.

    • In this episode there were quick flashback scenes of Matt, Lucy, Simon and Ruthie from season one and of Sam and David from season three.

    • Annie didn't mean her little speech about equality in the genders from "Tunes". In that one Annie gives a speech about sexual equality and how you shouldn't use clothes as justification for sexual harrassment/rape. What Ruthie did was borderline sexual harrassment yet Annie just laughed at it.

    • If Sam and David got into big trouble at school why didn't the teacher speak to Annie in person once she picked them up from school? Aren't little children usually escorted out by a teacher at the end of the day?

    • Martin should have just worn a belt if his pants were so baggy.
