  • This was one of my favorite episodes!

    It was very sad when jeremy dumped bridget, but pretty funny when Kerry broke the rules when she was dancing with Kyle when Rory and CJ were spying on the school on the internet! If only Bridget would get over her old boyfriends much faster. That doyle girl makes me want to slap her when she warned Jeremy about Bridget! I wonder if we ever see Bridget like that, because that was one of the only time I ever felt sorry for Bridget. Man, it was so funny and hilarious what Kerry did it made me fall off my couch!moreless

      (CJ is viewing the webcam on Jim through Rory's computer)
      CJ: No thank you, Grandpa Cam.
