Episode Summary

No Means No
Niki is is flying high after making a date with Devon McGregor, a cute senior boy she met at Sierra' vegetarian rally. She's excited but nervous and asks the girls to come by The Loft that night to give her moral support. But things with Devon are going so well on the date that when Alecia and Sierra arrive, Niki sends them away. Devon suggests going back to his house. When they get there, they make out passionately on his couch. Devon reaches to unzip her dress when they hear his parents come home. After they hastily get themselves back together, Niki wonders to herself what she almost got herself into. The next day at school the girls all want to hear about Niki's date, but she's unusually quiet about it. For his part, Devon tells her he had a great time and gives her a kiss. Finally under questioning Niki admits that things went a little "too far" but that she didn't say no. Alecia calls an "ECS"--emergency chat session--for later and the girls talk about going too far and guys who blur the boundary lines. Niki asserts that she will take control of the situation next time, but when Devon calls, her resolve seems to melt. Alecia gives her some tips on how to handle Devon, but she admits she's still a virgin. Niki tells her she is, too. Niki is over at Devon's house again. He says he downloaded a picture of her at the rally he wants her to see. She asks where it is, and when he tells her it's on the computer in his bedroom, she reacts angrily and leaves. Niki talks to the girls again. She confused about Devon, the first guy she's liked for more than his looks. The girls tell her she didn't give him a chance by breaking up with him before she talked to him and that he deserves an explanation. Niki meets Devon after school. He's not happy with her. She tells him she's sorry and tries to explain her concerns to him. She tells him not only was she worried about him, but that she didn't trust herself with him, either. Devon is understanding but tells her she needs to talk with him about these things. After their agreement, there's one more revelation--neither of them are vegetarians!moreless

      • Niki: And then I realized... if Felicity had never cut her hair off, Al Gore would have been elected president.

In October 1999 during its second season, the title character played by Keri Russell got her long, wavy hair cut short. The show's ratings dropped noticeably during that season, causing many critics and fans to speculate that the haircut was responsible for the show's decline in viewership.
