  • it's a really great episode.

    hey i'm silke and i'm from belgium my english is not so good so sorry when there is someting wrong. I think this is a great episode I don't really know why, it just is. I really love declan and lori in the serie so that is the reason I really watch. but the other couples are good to.

    this is the best serie i have ever seen beside one tree hill

    and I think declan and kyle are really cute. I'm going to watch every episode online cause I can't see it on tv yet but when it does I'll understand everything so I really know what's going on.moreless
  • Every show must have a filler episode and here is one.

    Kyle has spent a lot of time with the next door neighbor and in this show he finally figures out what it means to be "in love"! Only to have his heart broken when he's introduced to Amanda who has a boyfriend. It is incredibly hard to be human as Kyle is figuring out! So much for sex for Kyle! But watching every one else trying to figure out their emotions just as Kyle was trying to do was pretty cool. Tom Foss has something to do with Kyle, the mystery surrounding both Tom and Kyle leaves you wanting to see the next episode really bad.moreless
  • Not the party that they thought it would be.

    Leaning about human emotion is quite hard for myself who knows all about it. Especially seeing it through a new person's eyes. Jealously, love, hate, everything in life we take for granted. It's quite sad how we really are. I wish some of us could start over again on how life is. I loved the swimming pools scene on how Kyle learned about his body. It's really only a reaction that we have learned to hide. It's just too bad his heart was broken at the end of the episode. Stupid girl, she doesn't know what she has right in front of her. The party was a bummer for everyone. Life's little lesson is hard to learn.moreless
  • The story drifted a bit off course and focused on sex rather than the mystery that is Kyle.

    Kyle has his first dream that he can recall and it involves Amanda. When the trio goes out to spend a day at the pool, Kyle tries to make this dream a reality. When Amanda jumps into the pool to save Kyle from drowning Kyle has his first erection and Stephen gives Kyle "the talk." Josh gets the look from a girl named Ashleigh. To help Lori get out of watching Kyle for a couple hours Josh convinces Nicole that Kyle needed swimming lesson, in exchange for Lori getting Ashleigh's phone number. Declan has asked Lori to go with him to Preston's party as an official date and Lori is thinking if Declan is stepping up to the plate she may go all the way with him at the party. Tom's former co-worker finds out that he may have had something to do with Kern's disappearance and learns about Kyle. Kyle learns about the death of Amanda's father. Tom's co-worker tries to blackmail him so, Tom kills someone the guy. Unknowingly, Amanda breaks Kyle's heart by introducing him to Charlie, her boyfriend. In a drunken and agitated state, Hilary spills the story that she cohere Declan into going out with Lori. Ashleigh gets Josh to go skinny-dipping in the Jacuzzi and then get busted by the chaperons. I felt sorry for everyone getting caught, being back-stabbed by a friend, and getting their heart broken. Sex has become apart of every day television, honestly I never received "the birds & the bees" speech. Today, children learn about sex by television and not their parents. I know, every man and woman wants to explore their bodies but, the Bible says that sex is a reward for the married and a sin for the single. The way I see Tom watching Kyle, he knows more than he's letting on.moreless
  • Not the best.

    Kyle finds out that he is in love with Amanda. Josh meets a girl named Ashley. Lori sleeps with Declan. Tom, the mysterious stranger, kills someone. Stephen gives Kyle “the talk.” Amanda unknowingly breaks Kyle’s heart by introducing her boyfriend to him. Lori finds out that Declan only did it because Hilary asked him to. Josh gets busted when found in the jacuzzi skinnydipping with Ashley. This episode was sad. I really felt sorry for Kyle when Amanda introduced him to her boyfriend. I thought that this episode was a little too inappropriate. I believe and know that sex shouldn’t come before marriage. Lori was wrong in doing that. Josh also was wrong by being with Ashley and sneaking those magazines. This episode could’ve toned down on the sexuality. The more I see Tom, the more I want to find out more about Kyle. This episode gets a 6.0 out of 10.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goof: When Josh and Ashleigh are in the hot tub, the water is glassy smooth. A properly functioning jacuzzi would have bubbling water. According to the DVD commentary, the crew could not get the jets to work on the day of the shoot.

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Amanda: (after seeing Kyle learn his swimming lessons in one go.) Are you sure you've never been swimming before?
      Kyle: Yesterday.
      Amanda: That wasn't swimming. That was drowning. (she notices Kyle's lack of a navel) You don't-- you don't have a bellybutton?!
      Kyle: No.
      Amanda: Why not?
      Kyle: I don't know.
      Amanda: (quickly changes the subject.) And you still don't remember anything from your life before?
      Kyle: No.
      Amanda: But you can jump off a tall building and swim like an Olympic champion!
      Kyle: (turns his head and looks at her.) Josh thinks I'm an alien.
      Amanda: Or Superman! (chuckles)
      Kyle: You're not angry anymore.
      Amanda: (shrugs) I never was. I just... thought your drawings were kinda weird.
      Kyle: Why?
      Amanda: There were a lot of me.

    • Kyle: (voice-over) I'd been so eager to remember, to grow up and experience life like Lori and Josh. But in that one moment, I wished I could go back to that blank slate. When life was... easier. I think they wished for it, too.

    • Kyle: (voice-over) I didn't know that I could make a picture of how I felt inside, but I really wanted to try.

    • Kyle: (voice-over) It was my first dream, at least the first I could remember. My subconscious mind was weaving a tale of love and loss even thought my memories contained no such stories, I wondered what it meant, was it something I already experienced or simply a vision of things to come. I wish to go back to that moment with Amanda, I wanted to see how it would end.

    • Nicole: Kyle, you want to go to the pool?
      Lori: I'm the only girl in America who has to baby-sit a fully-grown teenager.
      Stephen: Uh... take your brother, too, because we have to go to the high school to register Kyle.
      Josh: Uh... choice? What if I don't want to go to the pool?
      Stephen: Uh... maybe you don't want to spend the rest of the day with your summer reading list either.
      Josh: I'll go get my stuff.

    • Lori: Poor dad, he has to explain the birds and the bees to someone with quadruple his IQ.

    • Kyle: Everybody laughed at me.
      Stephen: And you don't know why?
      Kyle: No.
      Stephen: You never had an erection before?
      Kyle: Not that I can remember.

    • (to Amanda about his drawings of her)
      Kyle: I draw everything exactly how I see it in my head. But you're special, and I can't seem to get you right.
      Amanda: How come?
      Kyle: Seems like there's something missing.

    • Kyle: So we come to the pool, but don't swim. And we scope babes, but we don't talk to them?
      Josh: It's a cruel world, I just live in it.

    • Mr. Preston: Young man. (Referring to Josh leaving the hot tub after he got caught skinny dipping.)
      Josh: I can't! Zits, old people, zits, old people…
      Mr. Preston: I'm going to count to three. One, two…
      Josh: Grapefruit!

    • Ashleigh: I thought you were cute.
      Josh: You did?
      Ashleigh: Well, there aren't any other boys at my school to compare you to. But, yeah.

    • Josh: What are you doing?
      Ashleigh: I don't want to get my clothes wet.
      (Josh looks around in surprise)
      Ashleigh: What are you doing?
      Josh: Checking for the hidden cameras!
      Ashleigh: You're funny.
      Josh: It's my thing!

    • Hillary: Wow you're hot!
      Kyle: It's warm outside.
