  • Sam has a run in with a older girl who picks on him. Being Kim\'s friend, it brings it closer to his home than he would care for. Kim Kelly invites Lyndsay over to her house, to substantiate her stories to her parents.

    This is a good example of the strong storylines that the writers enjoy giving the docile American public. It gives an intense Kim Kelly background, where we see her in a brand new light. I enjoyed her over the top performances before this episode. Although she stayed true to her character, they never went back on anything they already done. I was happy to see that Kim and Lyndsay finally found a middle ground where they can be friends. We see where Lyndsay learned her compassion when her Mom, feeling upset and uncomfortable with Kim bringing her problems to their doorstep, wonders if Kim would like ice cream. As brutally harsh as the characters appear, you can\'t help but wish you had friends like these (well... most of them).
