  • Very eventful.

    This episode was slightly better than the last episode. And the last episode was really good. This episode was so great. 90210 is definitely kicking it up a notch with all the drama. Kelly breaks up with Ryan to see if her & Dylan are ever going to work out. He falls in to the arms of Brenda, I don't understand why these two are friends. Their friendship is so dysfunctional. Kelly accused Brenda of being with Dylan like three times. And Brenda sleeps with Kelly's ex? Even though I don't understand their friendship, it definitely was entertaining. Naomi will stop at nothing to bring her parents back together, and her plan crashes to the ground. Ethan & Naomi breakup, for good, according to Naomi. Adrianna & Annie have to "get along" when they go to a fashion show. An agent comes up to Annie to offer her to read for a part. Annie, being a nice person, helps Adrianna out. Adrianna thought she was being nice back when she reveals she didn't sleep with Ty and she set Ty & Annie up. I love Annie's reaction to everything. I like her when she's not being an all smiles nice person. It's good that she is growing some back bone at the 90210. Then there is the fight scene between Dixon & the model agent. The agent kept on offering Silver deals to become a model. She starts to believe him, only to find out she has to sleep with him first. Dixon saves the day. Even Debbie steps, beginning to like Debbie more than I did in the beginning. She needs more scenes! Adrianna continues to do drugs by the end. Ty & Annie agree to stay friends by the end. Amazing episode, so much things happened!moreless
  • Awesome.

    Debbie is given an opportunity to shoot a major fashion show. Adrianna tells Annie the truth after Annie helps her land an audition, but the damage is done and Annie and Ty have broken up. Naomi decides that the fashion show is the perfect place to bring her parents back together, but her plan backfires. Silver is harassed by one of Debbie's co-workers who shouts racial slurs toward Dixon, who was defending her. After receiving a mysterious phone call, Kelly takes a leave of absence to go visit Dylan McKay. Naomi and Ethan break up for good. Another awasome episode, I loved it. Awesome storyline this episode, just so enjoyable to watch! Ethan and Naomi broke up, which I'm happy about, eventhough I love Naomi, I would rather have Annie. Well can't wait until the next episode.moreless
  • Another good episode

    In this episode of 90210, the following happens. Adrianna and her mother get called in to see the Principal to discuss the fact that many of the teachers at the school believe that she may have a drug problem. Harry offers her once chance, for them to help her, but she denies that she is on drugs. Brenda gets a phone call from Dylan (Kelly's son's father) and he asks to speak to Kelly and so Brenda hands over the phone to her. Ryan soon plants an idea in Kelly head that stays with her for most of the episode, if Dylan had wanted to speak to her, then why did he call Brenda? Kelly also had her phone on her. Naomi is still trying to get her parents back together. Kelly confronts Brenda about the phone call with Dylan and they end up having an argument about it. After Brenda leaves she deletes Dylan's number form her cell phone. Adrianna confesses to Annie that Ty wasn't in the shower in the hotel room, the night of the school play. Naomi's father tells her that there is no chance of him and her mother getting back together. Naomi gets upset by this and walks away. During a [party Dixon gets into a fight as does Debbie when she hears how the guy speaks to Dixon. But soon it ends and everything seems ok. When Silver gets home from the party, Kelly tells her that she is going out of town for a while, to see Dylan, Silver says she is willing to stay at her house and look after it for her sister whilst she is gone, and Kelly agrees to let her do so. At the end of the episode, we see Adrianna getting into a car, and buying drugs.moreless
  • Kelly gets a phone call from Dylan which makes her question her relationship with Ryan.

    All in all, I thought that this was an absolutely amazing episode. I loved the whole Naomi story line where she was scheming to try and fix her parents marital problems. I loved the scene where Naomi is having dinner with her father and his mistress. Naomi is such a great character! Although, all of the story lines in this episode were great. I also loved Navid in this episode. I just wish that they had featured him more. It was great seeing Annie and Adrianna interact with each other in this episode. Silver was great in this episode too. The Kelly and Ryan story line was great too. I felt really bad for Ryan since he really likes Kelly. In closing, I thought that this was a very well written, well acted and well made episode from everyone involved, and I'm looking forward to watching more episodes of 90210 in the future.moreless
  • more conversations about Dylan :) and love-triangle's return for few secs :(

    it's hard for me to watch Kelly and Brenda quarelling 'coz of Dylan -- you know, like the return to the past... though more remindings of his name make it better. but I can't get if Brenda still has feelings for Dylan 'coz she "meaningfully" deleted his cellphone number after that talk to Kelly.

    the new ones are pretty cool. still love Silver and Ryan (well, he's kinda an adult, but let's be honest, just kinda :) other characters... what can I say? I can't stand Naomi (probably, just don't like the way AnnaLynne McCord plays her). I don't get why the Wilsons are SOOO nice to everybody, even to the people that annoy them. I try to understand what's wrong with me 'coz I really don't like Ethan... and he's the hottie of the show (well, he's planned to be)... and finally, Adrianna -- guess I just don't care, though I'm impressed by Jessica Lowndes' acting skills.

    hope to see Kelly and Brenda after this episode again 'coz it seems like they are gonna say "good bye" to Beverly Hills. at least for a while.

    FAVE SCENE: Kelly/Brenda quarrel.

    FAVE QUOTE: Silver (answering how the party was): Oh, you know. Dreams built up and shattered. Typical night in Hollywood.moreless

  • QUOTES (23)

    • Kelly: And I talked to your dad. He has a room ready, and he's waiting for you.
      Silver: You're kidding, right? I am not going to go stay with Mel and his latest child-bride. I think that girl is actually in my homeroom.

    • Silver: Do you know I actually almost started believing that guy?
      Dixon: Hey! That guy is a pig, but he was right about one thing. You are definitely the most beautiful girl in the room tonight.

    • Ethan: Are you gonna be staring at your Sidekick all night?
      Naomi: Are you gonna be staring at the fake boobs all night?

    • Ryan: This is not like any high school week night I remember.
      Brenda: Well, you didn't go to West Beverly. Trade in Rhianna and Louis Vuitton's for Madonna and black leggings, and it's exactly the same as when I was a teenager.

    • Brenda: Adrianna, you are a fantastic actress. And if you choose to, you're gonna have great success, but there's plenty of time for that. Maybe you should take a little bit of pressure off of yourself right now.
      Adrianna: Do you really think I want to end up like you, acting in some tragic theater company, directing high school musicals in my spare time? No, thanks.

    • Annie: (about Adrianna) God, what is her problem?
      Harry: She is having a rough time.
      Annie: Yeah, but so is everybody else. It's called "high school".

    • Naomi: (about her dad) The minute he got in the same room with my mom they ended up in bed together. What does that tell you?
      Ethan: That they're still horny.
      Naomi: No, that they still have feelings for each other.

    • Navid: Dude, you've been in Beverly Hills, like, ten minutes and you already have a girlfriend. You know what that makes me?
      Dixon: A loser?
      Navid: No, a third wheel.

    • Silver: (to Dixon and Navid) Listen, I'm gonna let you guys just hug this out while I go try to blog Navid a whole new wheel.

    • Adrianna: You stole my part in the play.
      Annie: Adrianna, I was your understudy. I had to go on. You, on the other hand, did not need to sleep with Ty.
      Adrianna: Then why are you helping me?
      Annie: Because, unlike you, I'm actually a nice person.

    • Kelly: Ryan. Look, you are a really great guy. I mean it. Any girl would be lucky to have a chance with someone like you, but with things the way they are with Dylan, I just don't know if or when I'm gonna be able to go there with somebody else. And you deserve more than that.
      Ryan: Are you asking me to wait? 'Cause I got nothing but time and the distinct feeling that women like you don't come around very often.
      Kelly: I don't want you to wait. I'm sorry.
      Ryan: Me, too. Hey, Kelly, do you have your phone with you today?
      Kelly: Yeah. Why?
      Ryan: I was just wondering, if Dylan wanted to talk to you, why was he calling Brenda?

    • Silver: (to Dixon) Well, if you ever want to model for me, we can just go somewhere.
      Navid: Okay, discomfort level rising.

    • Ryan: Well, it's pretty clear Kelly's not really in a head space to date, whatever that means.
      Brenda: You know, I probably shouldn't say anything, but… I love Kelly. As great as she is, you just dodged an epic bullet.

    • Ryan: Annie, where's Adrianna?
      Annie: Oh, you know, she's just off cooking up her next little psychotic plan to ruin my life.

    • Tom: Now, I thought the modeling world was not for you.
      Silver: Morbid fascination. I was dragged here kicking and screaming.

    • Tom: How about I get my driver to take us back to my house in the hills, and we can plot the world domination of Silver in my Jacuzzi?
      Silver: You're kidding, right? Do you know how old I am?
      Tom: Oh, age to me is more of a state of mind.
      Silver: Yeah, well, in the state of California, it's 15 to 20 hard time.

    • Naomi: Now my parents will never get back together.
      Ethan: Maybe that's not such a bad thing.
      Naomi: How can you say that?
      Ethan: Some people just aren't meant to be together.

    • Naomi: Is that why you couldn't say you loved me earlier?
      Ethan: It's complicated.
      Naomi: It shouldn't be complicated, E. I'm just so tired. I'm tired of pretending that my parents are gonna be together forever. I'm tired of pretending that we're ultimately gonna stay together. I think it's over, E. For good, this time.
      Ethan: I think you're right.

    • Kelly: Hey, kiddo. How was the party?
      Silver: Oh, you know. Dreams built up and shattered. Typical night in Hollywood.

    • Silver: That means you have to come back, right? With or without Dylan.
      Kelly: Don't worry about it, okay? Silver, you and I are family. You'll never be alone.

    • Kelly: Brenda, if there is something going on with you and Dylan, now is the time to tell me.
      Brenda: He got my e-mail address from Brandon, and he sent me a message from Africa a few months ago. He wanted to know if you were in a relationship.
      Kelly: I talked to him about that same time. Why didn't he just ask me?
      Brenda: I don't know, but I told him that he was already messing up, and that if he was serious about reconnecting with you, he needed to come back to the States and do it the right way. I mean, he's hurt you so many times, I was just trying to protect you.
      Kelly: Or maybe you were trying to keep the door open for yourself.
      Brenda: Wow! I thought that we had moved past all this already.

    • Brenda: Ryan wanted to keep an eye on Adrianna so I had my agent get us some tickets to that fashion show.
      Kelly: Wow, you and Ryan. I guess old habits die hard with you, don't they?
      Brenda: What is that supposed to mean?
      Kelly: When was the last time you saw Dylan?

    • Tom Marino: Most girls would give up their cell phones for a professional modeling contract.
      Silver: Well, I guess I'm not like most girls.

    • Ryan: Maybe a mug shot on PerezHilton, I don't know.

      PerezHilton.com is a celebrity blog site, which features deliciously nasty gossip about the Hollywood elite.
