  • Well 3 things happend- Amy moves back-madison breaks up with ephiene and Harold finds out who gave amy birth control pill

    6.5
    Since we are ¾ through the series it was about time certain story line had to end and in this cleverly titled unfinished business we got that. I will discuss all 3 of them below.



    Madison/Ephene- I knew when they started this story line it would have to end and it did in this episode but was done rather emotionally as well, he realise at her birthday party what the problem was and that party confirmed the problem with age-difference. The fact they just have different circle of friends made it even more difficult. At least he still has Amy who broken up with other guy-after pervious episode I had a feeling it was over.



    Amy-we knew eventually Amy would move back to her house but he realise she can’t go back everyone around her was changing and they won’t forgive her but at least Bright helped her face up to it. I have feeling that things are going work out



    Amy has put Andy in a difficult position since he respected her wish as patient and didn’t tell Harold about birth control pills making their friendship over. I get feeling next couple of episodes are going a lot of fun for both these characters. We all love these two character fighting.

    Everwood just makes me feel, it gives me a different feeling you know, it is just a great one, it is just so sad and lovely and romantic I just can't help saying these things cause that is what it is. It was sad that the secrets were taken because of another side of you, like with the situation of the controlling pills and it is really sad that Madison and Ephram are not the one meant to be, but that's okay actually it is now better because he's with Amy:)moreless

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Tommy: It's been two days. Didn't you want to make sure I was okay?
      Amy: I called the hospital, they said you were released yesterday.
      Tommy: So were you going to leave a forwarding address or just going for a clean getaway?
      Amy: I'm just going home.
      Tommy: It's good.
      Amy : Yeah.
      Tommy: mm, I'll give you a call later, let you get settled in.
      Amy: No, don't.
      Tommy: Look Amy, I screwed up. I never should have taken you to that party, we should never have done all that crap, but this whole thing has been a serious wake-up call for me.
      Amy: I'm glad, I hope you get the help that you need.
      Tommy: No Amy, I don't need help, I just...I just need you.
      Amy: I can't be that person for you anymore Tommy.
      Tommy: It was just a slip, one slip, one night, that's not who I am.
      Amy: It wasn't one night, it was three months of lies.
      Tommy: So what? I'm not good enough for you anymore? What are you gonna do? Gonna go back to Mommy and Daddy? Gonna go back to being little miss perfect, is that it? No you can't. You won't be able to, not after us.
      Amy: I gotta go, take care of yourself, Tommy.

    • Madison: (after making up with Ephram) Word of advice though. You forget my birthday and it's over.
      Ephram: (sarcastically) Oh you got a birthday coming up?
      Madison: Funny... laughing.

    • Amy: Let me just say that I'm sorry. I know that I kind of dissapeared for awhile and that I wasn't the best friend in the world, but I want to change that...Try to work on things, ya know.
      Paige: Wow, you're really desperate, ya know.
      Amy: Ok, maybe I shouldn't of come.
      Paige: Or maybe, you shouldn't have ditched us in the first place.
      Amy: I didn't ditch you Paige.
      Page: One day, we're talking on the phone all the time, and the next, Laynie's your new best friend and you won't even wave to me in the halls.
      Amy: Well I didn't see you calling me. I didn't see any of you, pick up the phone or do one kind thing after Colin died. You just wanted me to keep on doing what I always did: plan all the parties, go to the mall, fight for the best dance costume. Well I couldn't, Paige and I thought you would understand that.
      Paige: I'm sorry. Were your druggie friends more understanding?
      Amy: Just trying to get my life back.
      Page: Well you can't have it back.

    • Tommy: Look Amy, I screwed up. I never should have taken you to that party, we should never have done all that crap, but this whole thing has been a serious wake-up call for me.
      Amy: I'm glad, I hope you get the help that you need.
      Tommy: No Amy, I don't need help, I just... I just need you.
      Amy: I can't be that person for you anymore Tommy.
      Tommy: It was just a slip, one slip, one night, that's not who I am.
      Amy: It wasn't one night, it was three months of lies.
      Tommy: So What? I'm not good enough for you anymore? What are you gonna do? Gonna go back to Mommy and Daddy? Gonna go back to being little miss perfect, is that it? No you can't. You won't be able to, not after us.
      Amy: I gotta go, take care of yourself Tommy.

    • Mindy: I'm sure it wasn't as bad as you think. She really digs you, you know. She talks about you all the time.
      Ephram: Yeah.
      Mindy: You kind of love her, don't you?
      Ephram: Yeah.
      Mindy: You have that face. I remember when I had the face. Derek Senn. But we called him Demi-God. You know, 'cause he was basically god-like. I met him freshman year, we dated for like six months. It was the most amazing six months of my life. Then he decided he had to bike around South America, so he dropped out. We said goodbye at the airport and I never heard from him again. Pretty much the worst pain I ever felt.
      Ephram: Why does everyone feel the need to tell me how awful their first loves were? I mean, what's up with that?
      Mindy: I don't know. I guess because they're always so awful . . . and amazing . . . and usually over before they start.

    • Tommy: I don't expect you to forgive me, or even like me. I'm hoping you can at least accept a thank you. You saved my life.
      Harold: Actually it's my daughter who saved your life. All I did was show up.

    • Amy: You can't keep avoiding me, Bright. Our rooms are like two feet away from each other.

    • Amy: He was using my room as his own personal gym. Can you believe that?
      Ephram: No comment.

    • Amy to Ephram: You don't have to. We broke up this morning.
      Ephram to Amy: You did?
      Amy to Ephram: Yeah.
      Ephram to Amy: Are you okay?
      Amy to Ephram: Yeah, I think so. Kinda saw it coming, ya know, like we were forcing things. And then that whole thing happened. I'm sure that you heard.
      Ephram: Yeah, I think pretty much everybody heard. Sounded pretty scary.
      Amy: Yeah. But, it's okay. It's for the best.

    • Amy: Well it's good to know that one of us made a relationship work this year.

    • Madison: I'm still working on a little anger right now. You'll have to give me a minute.

    • Madison: So we're not going to any concert?
      Ephram: There is no concert. It's a good thing you look stuff up.

    • Narration/Irv: Sometimes we don't know our own strength. It can be hard to tell just how much weight you can safely bear, or how much will crush you. I'd like to think you can shoulder as big of burden as you believe you can -- that it's all a matter of will. Certainly a comforting thought. Other times it's hard to remember you had any strength at all. Then you can only hope to have someone to remind you, you were once fierce and able."
      Amy: You're sad.
      Ephram: A little.
      Amy: Something happen?
      Ephram: Madison and I broke up.
      Amy: What? When?
      Ephram: About an hour ago.
      Amy: Oh my God, the other day you said that everything was fine I thought...
      Eprham: Yeah I know, I lied a little bit. Don't ask me why.
      Amy: Why?
      Ephram: I don't know. I guess I thought if I pretended that everything was great actually it would be great.
