  • The family's back together!!!!!!!!!

    I have to say that this was a really good way to start of the series. It was definitely creative. Nick talks about how his family's problems made the tabloids along with his own problems. Then he goes to the house and everybody shows up. He was not expecting them to bring dogs with them. I have to say that it was cool to watch Aaron jump off the balcony into the pool. If I was there I probably would've done the same thing. A kinda funny part was when BJ was drunk. She's walking all over the house and she cant stand up straight. I really think that this is gonna be a really good show. I love it so far.moreless

    • This episode was filmed the first week of June of 2006.

    • A week before this episode aired, Aaron broke off his 9-day engagement to Playboy Playmate Kari Ann Peniche. Aaron proposed to Kari on Saturday, September 16, 2006, but called it off 9 days later saying he was "hasty" in proposing and realized he was "not ready" to get married. Peniche, a former Miss Teen USA, had previously dated Aaron's older brother, Nick.

  • QUOTES (14)

    • Nick: Maybe if you were in a stronger state of mind...

    • Angel [to B.J. about Leslie]: Don't go near her. She's The Omen.

      B.J.: I like lemons and limes, especially in a vodka drink.

    • Nick: I just want to bring us guys back together 'cause I'm tired of being apart. We were a very tight unit. That's why we got as far as we got in the first place and because of our love.
      Aaron: I can barely remember that 'cause that's like my whole life ago.

    • Angel: I have some modeling to do.
      Nick: You're doing modeling?

    • B.J. [to Nick]: Love ya... sometimes.
