  • Mila Kunis guest stars...

    This plot was really great, and it's perfect for a finale, since it was the end of the school year, and summer was starting, it was heartbreaking in the end, when Brad actually left for space camp. Lilly was so funny in this episode. Yelling "TAXI!" when Luna wasn't even ready to go. That was hilarious! There was too much filler in this episode though. Like Henry's last appearance as just doing random things when he's bored. Jimmy trying to find out who wrote "Call Me" in the yearbook, and Sean spreading secrets. The development was that Hope & Eddie are officaly living together. Great finale, and a perfect way to test Lilly & Brad's relationship.
  • Lily doesn't believe Brad when he says he has a girlfriend at Space Camp, but when she turns out to be real, Lily becomes jealous because she's cute as well.

    I can summarize why I love this episode with two words: Mila Kunis. Over on "That 70s Show," she could be vicious and dense, but as Luna, she's adorable and funny, and still vicious as she teases Lily over her relationship with Brad. Another thing that makes this a fave is the fact that Lynsey Bartilson tends to pull some acting chops in her mood swings on this show. Mostly, she's a conniving and dishonest teenager, but she in this episode, she starts to show Lily with a bit more dimension. Neurotic and jealous have rarely been a part of her character, especially not around Brad for whom she has never shown feelings for.
  • After Brad (Lily's boyfriend) brags about a girlfriend he had at Space camp, Lily thinks he's just making her up. But when she shows up at his doorstep, she realizes that she is indeed, real. This sparks jealousy.

    This episode was one of the very few episodes of this series that had a couple of serious moments between the characters. -- Brad and Lily have their first fight when Brad's space camp Girlfriend, Lana, comes to town, and (to Lily's dismay) Brad ends up going to Space Camp with her. Lily's decided that Brad doesn't like her anymore, so she takes things into her own hands and tries to make him jealous. She ends up hooking up with Joey, an employee of the local coffee shop "Mocha Joey's". Later, when Brad and Lily make up, she regrets everything that happened while Brad was at Space Camp, until he admits his infedilty.
