    Mary breaks up with Jack because Robbie talks to her. Jack's father accuses Mary of seducing Jack. Claire, the pregnant girl, asks Simon for help. Simon takes the baby to the hospital. Detective Michaels watches as he does. Lucy wonders if Kevin had ever been with anyone after Ben reads her diary. Roxanne wants to go out with Ben. A girl at Ruthie's school calls her "monkey lover." Later, she calls Ben a "big ape." Ben calls her a munchkin and ends up in the principal's office. Ben leaves to go to Buffalo. Sam and David hide Jack's father's hat.

    This was a great episode! I'm glad Simon helped Claire, but it was so sad. I thought it was funny how Ben told Kevin that Lucy "has a passion she fear cannot be quenched." I loved that part! I am so happy that Mary broke up with Captain Jack. This was a great episode that gets a 10!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • At Ruthie's school, Kevin says that when he quoted Lucy's diary, she wanted to know if he had been with anyone but Lucy asked him that before he quoted from her diary.

    • When Simon is at the police station, Kevin is questioning him as to why they don't have cell phone because he is trying to get in touch with Lucy. Simon says that it is a religious belief and they don't believe in them. But in the episode "Letting Go" Mary has a cell phone, on which she calls Lucy to tell her that she's at the house.

    • Goof: In this episode it was acknowledged several times that the Camdens only have one phone line in their house. But in the episode "No Sex, Some Drugs and a Little Rock 'n' Roll" and in later episodes in the 3rd season, Annie and Eric acknowledged that they got a second phone line due to the arrival of the new babies and more people calling. What happend to that line?

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Detective Michaels: (to Simon) If someone needs to give up their baby all you have to do is take the baby to a fire station, police station or hospital.

    • Roxanne: (to Simon) Look if this is about a women, Kevin might not be the best person to ask.

    • Roxanne: Your brother's in town, why didn't you tell me.
      Kevin: (in an odd expression) Why would I?

    • Claire: I'm not pregnant, their is no baby, their can't be any baby, you have no idea what my father's like.
      Simon: If your really in trouble maybe my dad could...
      Claire: There's nothing you can do, there's nothing anyone can do.
      Simon: Let me help you.

    • Ken Smith: How many times has she (Mary) claimed to be in love?
      Ben: I met Mary when she was engaged to Wilson, then I dated her and she dumped me for your son, so if I were you I wouldn't worry about Mary and Jack. (Robbie walks in and out) That was Robbie, another one of Mary's old boyfriends before me, after and before Wilson. So, as you can see for yourself, Mary's not that serious with anyone.
      Ken Smith: Thanks for confirming my worst fear.

    • Ken Smith: I'm Jack's dad, Captain Jack Smith the pilot your daughter Mary seduced.

    • Kevin: What happened to snooping around in my room?
      Lucy: Ben talked me out of it, probably because he needed a ride to the airport.
      Kevin: I can't stay long. I just came by to tell you I loved you and even if you had been with another guy I would still love you.
      Lucy: Well I haven't.
      Kevin: Well that's your business. What's in the past is in the past.

    • Simon: (to Eric and Annie) I have to go somewhere. I have a friend who's in trouble. If I don't go to help her, I could never look at myself in the mirror again. I just have to give her a ride to a safe place that's all it is. I'm not in any danger. I'm not doing anything wrong or illegal. It's nothing like that. I just have to help her and that's all there is to it.
      Eric: Do you want me to go with you?
      Simon: Do I want you to go with me? Yes I want you to come with me, but you can't.
