  • Derek plays a prank on a girl he likes, OUCH!

    I love this episode because it featured an actress I specifically like, Kate Todd. She is awesome in his episode. It totally sucked when Derek brought the other girl. That really hurts. Just to get back at Casey. That's just shallow. Well that's Derek for ya. I loved the ending when he went to go apologize & she forgave him easily just with some sweet talk. This episode also showed a theory in my head. Lizzie & Edwin should go out. They would be so cute together. The B plot for them was a typical plot. Edwin getting coached on girls. This episode is an awesome way to end a season.moreless
  • Derek and Edwin are both in love with some smoking hot oyoung ladies! Derek, who has been turned down by Sally still wants her, and unknowing to him, she finally is interested in him as well. Edwin tried to follow Derek's dating tips, but they backfire.moreless

    This is maybe the best life with Derek episode I've seen. It expands on Edwin's life and shows a nicer side of Derek in the end... And if I may say so, Sally is hot!!! The only thing is I wish Casey was still with Max. That was a fun part of the plot.


    I really like that Edwin and Derek finally both found the evasive "true"-love. It seemed right that Derek might actually be falling in love with a girl instead of just playing around with them, although that is some what amusing. I also like that Casey helped Derek and Sally get together.moreless
