Episode Summary

First Snow
Alecia is excited because her old boyfriend from Alabama, Andrew, is coming to town, but's she's also worried because she doesn't have a plan for what they will do. The other girls assure her they will help her arrange for a good time in the city. Alecia gives Sean some tips on how to approach Isabel, a girl he's interested in. In return, he tells her that he will help with the preparations for her big date. The four girlfriends and Sean go to check out a hip boutique, and while there Alecia and Sean discover they have a lot of the same likes in common; more, in fact, than she shares with Andrew. At her home the other girls prepare Alecia by getting her dressed and providing dinner, but then a call comes from Andrew saying his flight is cancelled because of snow. Alecia is not only disappointed, she sees no snow outside and doubts Andrew's excuse. At her request the girls leave Alecia alone. The doorbell rings and it's Sean. He tells her that Isabelle stood him up. They both decide to have dinner together and enjoy themselves talking afterward. Sean notices that snow is falling, the first Alecia's ever seen, so Andrew's excuse must have been true. As they watch the snow, Sean and Alecia are about to kiss when Sean receives a page. It's Isabelle, saying she was delayed and is ready to meet him. After Sean leaves, Alecia watches the snow by herself and obviously has a lot to think about.moreless

    • ALLUSIONS (5)

      • Sean & Alecia: Best Beatles album? "No question... Revolver!

        The Beatles Revolver album topped the charts in the USA in September 1966, as had all their albums. It was the last of the Beatles LP's to have a different track listing than its British counterpart. (When the Beatles albums were reissued on CD, the British versions were used.)

        Even though the album has been a beloved and revered classic since it was first released, it wasn't always necessarily considered the Beatles' best album. For many years its successor, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, was almost automatically considered not only the Beatles' best, but the greatest rock album ever. Also, the albums Abbey Road and The Beatles (better known as "the white album") have had strong supports among fans as the best. But around 2000, the cable music channel VH1 did a poll of musicians and critics to determine the 100 greatest rock albums of all time. Revolver finished number one.

      • Sierra: But if we turn on The Weather Channel we could nail him.

        The Weather Channel broadcasts 24 hours a day from its suburban Atlanta location, where it gives updates on weather across the United States and around the world, along with the local weather of the locations where it is shown. It is carried by most of the cable television providers across the U.S.

      • Alecia: ...a total Gates.

        Refers to Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft, the giant computer software company. Alecia uses the expression to mean a guy who is the stereotypical computer nerd type, but being a "Gates" might not be such a bad thing--Bill Gates might be the richest person in the world, with a multi-BILLION-dollar personal fortune. (Niki does modify the "Gates" insult by responding, "Pre-Microsoft.")

      • Alecia: You guys know Fiona Applesauce over there?

        Alecia is comparing a girl in the cafeteria (Isabel) to contemporary singer-songwriter Fiona Apple, though she may be referring more to looks than personality, since the girl is described as sort of new-agey, while Apple is more of a "confessional" singer-songwriter.

      • Sierra: Buckingham Fountain...
        Cris: Lincoln Park feeding the ducks...
        Niki: Gucci on Michigan Avenue...

        These are all things to do and see in Chicago.
