  • Lilly sleeps with Brad.

    Well this was a perfect finale. Well the next two episodes aren't really the finale, but wow. The best part about it is, Lilly is making out & her first time was with Brad. I like how Sean didn't find out & Claudia did. Another thing, it revolved around Lily's sixteenth birthday. I mean all of it pieced together perfectly. Just the thing to top it off, they have a funny useless plot like taking the younger kids to the emergency room. So you can say it has a bright side. I cannot wait to see Lilly & Brad develop in to their relationship.moreless
  • Your condom machine's broken

    I haven't seen this episode in awhile so this review may be inaccurate.



    This show is high larious!! And this episode is a fine example of that!!

    Lilly thinks Dean is the guy she should be losing her virginity to.

    On her sixteenth birthday they go home, but after he fails to "whoo" her she has sex with BRad.

    Brad is a sweetie and is a much better boyfriend for her, even if they were moving a little too fast. This was high larious though!! I loved it when the condom machine was broken and that whole thing with the bathroom's being out of order. And Lilly's last lines were hysterical!!moreless
  • Brad and Lily finally get together - well not officially because she still has to break up with Dean.

    I had been waiting since day one of this show for Brad and Lily to hook up. I thought it was soooooo sweet when Brad said all the special things he's noticed about Lily when he saw her sitting on the steps - all the stuff that Dean never noticed about her. Brad was a much better choice for Lily to give her virginity to. These 2 were always meant to be together. And when Brad came out of Lily's room in the pink bathrobe was hilarious! It was a cute episode and one of my favorites.moreless

    This is my favorite episode of GFL yet! ive seen it about ten times and it gets better each time! i love how dean was being a jerk, so lily went outside and then brad came up and acted so sweet! it also has some funny parts,too.like the hot wings, jimmy and his rectal theremometer adventure, the *mens* bathroom, and when claudia tells lily they have ot talk and lily says, will i have to put a condom on a banana again? this is definatly the best episode and i cant wait until ABC family has it on again. i actually keep track of all the episodes!moreless
  • This episode was just okay to me...

    6.7
    This episode wasn't really that funny. It was the first episode of Grounded for Life, I ever saw, and you can understand while I was turned off the show, for a few years after. (I was 9, and very thankful I didn't stick around to the last 10 minutes). Anyway, I thought the episode didn't have any jokes and was just sort of threw Lily and Brad together at the end. Especially how she just decides to do it with him after he said like 2 nice things with her, it makes no sense to me. Even though I found some humur in the chicken-wings thing overall, this episode wasn't as good as it was built up to be. So I give it a 6.7.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • At the beginning during the party, when Brad gives Lily her present, the bow on the gift box is on the right side of the screen (Brad's left). Then when Lily says, "I hope you didn't go to too much trouble" the camera moves and shows all of Brad, not just his side, you can see that the bow is now on the left side of the screen (Brad's right).
      On the Audio Commentary of the season 3 DVD, Lynsey Bartilson (Lily) said that she moved the bow on the box because she didn't like the angle it was at.
