    This was a very different episode with something that has happened to all of us.We all have embarrassin moments boradcasted but unfourtunatly for Kerry it was something very private to her.

    Bridget is jealous because she wanted to be the first yet when she was ready her father got in the way.

    Rory is going through a time with a bully which we all must have to tackle one day young or old.

    It is a very funny but very truthfulk about how a Kerry finds it harded to talk to her mum about something so personal that sometimes talking to another is so simple.

    If i was in her shoes i would like to talk to everyone but my mum.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • We find out Kerry lost her virginity to a guy in Europe in this episode.

    • If you'll notice the picture of Bridget in Kyle's locker, she has the bangs/kind of shaggy look, which she had starting season 2, after she and Kyle broke up, while he was going out with Kerry.
      Guess he never got over Bridget

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Cate: Do you have a tattoo?
      Bridget: (scoffs) What?
      Cate: You heard me. Do you?
      Bridget: Do you? (Cate gives her a look) Ok, fine, yes, okay?
      Cate: No, it's not okay! I specifically told you no tattoos!
      Bridget: How did you even find out? I thought you weren't going to spy on me!
      Cate: And I thought I could trust you. You are grounded!
      Bridget: What? That is so unfair! You never ground Kerry!
      Cate: I do when she deserves it!
      Bridget: Oh, please! You watch me like a hawk while you let Miss Goody-goody do whatever she wants?
      Cate: (enraged) This is not about Kerry, Bridget! It's about you! Besides, Kerry would never do anything so stupid and reckless!
      Bridget: (in her own rage) Oh, yeah? Well, at least I'm still a virgin!
      Cate: (taken aback) What? (even Bridget looks horrified at what she'd just said; a shocked Cate accidentally turns on the PA) Kerry's not a virgin?
      (Kerry looks horrified; this announcement distracts the bully, allowing C.J. to escape; Ed Gibb wakes up from his nap; Kyle high-fives his friends)

    • Cate: Were you taking a nap?
      Gibb: What? Why would you ask me that?
      Cate: Well...your eyes are puffy, blinds are drawn, there is a pillow on your desk.
      Gibb: Don't jump to conclusions, there is a very simple explanation for...(alarm clock goes off). Yes, I was naping.

    • Kerry: I slept with him.
      Bridget: OH MY GOD!!
      Kerry: Bridget! Bridget! Please don't tell Mom!!
      Bridget: No! No! I'm the older one, i'm supposed to sleep with a guy first!!

    • C.J.: You got to talk to them like I just did. You gotta bring the pain.
      Jim: That kid is four years old.
      C.J.: Yeah, well, he's as big as a six year old.

    • Kerry: Other people have to get to school too.
      Bridget: Remember I am your student body president and leadership starts from the hair down.

    • Kerry: Gosh, what do you do in there that takes so long
      Bridget: Virgin Stuff
      Kerry: Quiet! Mum might hear you...you are such a twit!
      Bridget: Well at least I'm still a virgin
      Kerry: God, what is that supposed to mean...you are such an idiot
      Bridget: Well at least I'm still a virgin!

    • C.J.: Hey Lil' Hefner, what's with the PJ's?

    • Kerry: What are you doing in there (the bathroom) that takes so long?
      Bridget: Virgin stuff

    • Jim: That's how the men in this family handle bullies.
      C.J.: (chuckles) You know 'dat!
      Jim: Put down the purse.

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Gibb: Yes I was naping, I have given up coffee and I have a really tough time with it. I went cold turkey.
      Cate: Yes, I did that once.

      This is a reference to the season one episode "Give It Up" where Cate gives up coffee in a contest.

    • Bridget ends the school announcements with "Hennessy, out!," a reference to Ryan Seacrest's American Idol sign-off.
