  • It's midterms time. Ashley's long distance boyfriend makes a visit. Rusty turns to somewhere other than studying to get a good grade. Casey finds herself drawn to Kappie after getting partnered up for an assignment and doubts her relationship with Evan.moreless

    I loved this episode. Kappie is at his most amusing. His Keanu Reeves impersonation was fantastic. And his attempt to woo Casey again was brilliant. And in addition to formally being a science major and a psychology major we learn that Kappie was once a Latin major too. Is there anything that boy can't do?

    I was disappointed to see that Ashley's boyfriend was such a fool. No wonder why the Zeta Beta's try to break them out.

    Rusty's relationship with Jen K is so cute. They're adorable in that annoying way too sweet counting the hours they've been together kind of way.

    I like how Casey and Rusty interact with each other. Their brother/sister relationship is nicely done.moreless
  • Season 1, Episode 7

    It's midterm time at Cyprus Rhodes and Rusty must go to cheating to pass his Pyshics midterm. Ashleigh's boyfriend Travis visits and the ZBZ girls do not care for him. Cappie attends a class for the third time all semester and gets partnered up with Casey for a written paper as a grade towards their final. Casey is literally laying on Cappie when he tells her fate didn't bring them together, he bribed the teacher with 2 six packs of beer. The ZBZ sisters including Casey tell Ashleigh that she needs to break up her realtionship with Travis, but Calvin tells her to keep her private life private. So she lies and tells ZBZ girls she broke up with Travis. This show just keeps getting better and better!moreless
  • To cheat or not to cheat that is the question enveloped in this episode?

    This episode was unbelievably heartwrenching! When Cappie heard that Casey was lavelierred you could see his heart breaking and then those wheels of his starting to turn. In true Cappie style he sneaks his way into Caseys life & wishfully her heart by means of a paper about heroes! While working on this paper Cappie showed all the signs of being a true hero that they described in thier paper! The two best/intense parts were when Casey asks Cappie does he know where he wants to be in ten years and Cappie goes with you! Aww...this was a serious moment and emotion coming from the anti-serious king. Gosh they are so meant to be! The other was at the end when Cappie sees Casey getting lavelierred by Evan & the look on his face was pure love for Casey and sadness that she didn't pick him and then when he holds up his cup to congratulate her in away, he shows that he is truly a hero and a better man and the right one for Casey! Cappie + Casey Forever!moreless
  • To cheat or not to cheat, that is the question?

    A really good episode, one of my favorites, though, Rebecca could have been used a little. Rusty and Jen's relationship is growing, which is good, I really like the two of them together.

    Mid-terms have arrived, and Rusty is totally stressed out. He doesn't know why he came to college in the first place. He thought he came to learn, but now, he just wants to get by. So, with the help of some advice from Casey and Jen, he decides that maybe cheating will work.

    Casey and Cappie are paired together for a project, and it lights a few sparks.

    When Travis, Ashleigh's boyfriend visits, Ashleigh is urged to break up with him.moreless
  • It is midterms week and everybody is getting ready and studying in their own way.

    Rusty is studying for the midterms and thinks he has it down cold when Dale tells him there are 5 more characters to learn before the midterm. Rusty doesn't know what to do and asks Cappie if there are any study materials in the cabinet and Cappie goes into "The Matrix" line saying "You pick the hand with the jellybean in it, you go back to your dorm with a burst of fresh blueberry flavor. No questions asked. You take the other one, and you get to see how deep the rabbit hole goes." I love that line and Cappie did a great impression of Laurence Fishburne. Rusty takes the paper with the number on it and calls for the physics answers. When he gets the envelope of candy in it he thinks he just got ripped off but then notices the ingredients have formulas on it. Rusty can use the candy bars and no one will think bad of having candy on his desk. This was way cool and I loved how Rusty is developing into a character we can love. At first I thought Rusty wasn't going to use it but in the end we see that he did. Rusty then tells Jen K that he cheated and that all he wants is to learn. Jen K has a way to make it better by him actually learning the formulas so that he can say he really knows then now. That was great and I am glad Jen K is there for him.:D Another part of the episode shows Casey and Cappie writing a paper together and how they are getting close and she kisses Cappie. Cappie confuses that he paid the T.A. to pair them together and Casey runs back to Evan. I for one think Casey was happier with Cappie but Evan doesn't resort to tricks to get her to like him. She feels save with him but that doesn't make it love. I think this love triangle with Casey/Cappie/Evan with come to an end soon.:)moreless

(pause) Yeah, I full-on read Campbell's book.

      Rusty: Then why did you tell me?
      Casey: Good question.

    • Rusty: Dale you gotta be careful drinking all that caffeine.
      Dale: No, my resting heart rate is… 145, that's well within' tolerance.
      Rusty: Yea, for a humming bird!

    • Cappie: You pick the hand with the jellybean in it, you go back to your dorm with a burst of fresh blueberry flavor. No questions asked. You take the other one, and you get to see how deep the rabbit hole goes.
      Rusty: The rabbit hole?

    • Rusty: So with everyone cheating is it still really cheating if you cheat?

    • Rusty: I spent all last night trying to learn five brain cramping chapters of physics. My brain's fried, because of all I studied last night, I forgot what I learned three weeks ago.

    • (Talking about Ashleigh)
      Cappie: My point is, maybe she's finally becoming the person she was meant to be.
      Casey: If that's the case, she'd be better not growing up at all.
      Cappie: I could not agree with you more! Especially if growing up turns you into someone your not. Someone pretentious, boring… pie less.

    • Dale: (Talking about Harvel who passed out during his and Dale's study session) He has a medical condition, that's what he told me.

      Cappie: So did I.

    • (Talking about Kappa Tau's midterm filing system)
      Rusty: Isn't this cheating?
      Cappie: Cheating? Would our esteemed professors continue to reuse the same test over and over, knowing that future students could easily recycle them?

    • Rusty: The game's rigged. Old tests, pay tutors for cramming, drugs. College isn't about learning; it's a four year course on how to get buy and beat the system. It's supposed to be the last passion for education, a place removed from society where you're inspired, not discouraged. A place where teachers teach and students learn.

      Cappie: I want to be with you.

    • (Rusty has just told Cappie that Evan is planning on giving Casey his letters)
      Cappie: Congrats Case, your kids will be very Aryan.
