    Sean and Julia's relationship continues to be pulled through the wringer. Ironically, it was only after their break-up that they could have great sex again for the first time in two years. Which is probably something psychiatrists could have a lot of fun with. I really loved their whole storyline in this episode, especially when Julia and Christian talked on the beach. Julia has this saintly view of Christian and what a perfect man he is, when it's clear that isn't the case. I really liked how Christian told her that if she wants somebody to be a father for her children and love her, she should stick with Sean. While it wasn't said in the kindest way, it was still kinda sweet of him.

    The surgery of the week was fun, and you just knew as soon as the Dante's appeared on screen that they'd soon end up in the sack with Christian. The look on his face when Julia found them was awesome. He'd obviously had a great time!

    Matt is just insanely stupid. He's been given all the right answers from both Sean and Christian, yet still decides to get all knife happy with his circumcision. Plus, if he just waited out a couple of years he could get the operation without parental consent. The closing moments are pretty ick-worthy though. The loud "snip!" noise was bad enough, but his slow realization that he's pretty much bleeding to death was hilariously gross.

    A great second episode which maintains the humor and visual style (loved that tanning bed sex scene) of the pilot.
