    Dialouge is not necessary in that scene; we more than enough get the point of Dan's motives from him knocking down the bride as the camera zooms in on Deb, signifying Dan's eyes.

    Yep. I agree. The cheesy dialogue can be bad sometimes. It also reminds me of when he whistles the wedding march and then smiles into the camera before he decides to go sit outside of Lindsey/Lucas's wedding.

    Oh but you enjoy criticising so much! LOL

    Also wanted to add (d@mn edit button not working!) that in defense of the "knocking down the bride" thing, I wonder if the writers did it with Deb that way since he could also be talking about Jules too. She was the "bride" on the cake and he may have been mad at her for...I dont even know. Dan will find a reason to be mad. But then again if hes looking at Deb and does it, then yeah its obvious its Deb so....IDK

    Yes, during 5x12, he says "great day for a wedding" or something like that, sprays some cologne, ties his tie while whistling the wedding march, stares and laughs into the camera, and then the scene fades to black.

    never seen it?!

    well i didnt start watching until 3 months before s4 began lol. i watched the dvds s1-3 before the s4 premiere.

    its funny bc i remember seeing some parts of it during s2 when it was airing b/c my sister lloved it so much. first part i saw was i believe the episode where caleb has a heart attack during ryan and lindsay's dinner...the second part was when caleb fell into the pool and died. back then it didnt hold my interest but when i started from s1 later on i was hooked.

    ^ Yeah I don't know, I just never really started watching it. I'm sure I would probably really like it if I did though.
    In fact I only started watching OTH in season 6, because my friend recommended it to me. I caught up on seasons 1-5 later on DVD, but it kinda sucks watching it backwards like that, I wished I had watched the show right from the start. But then again, I was pretty young when OTH started lol, I'm only 18 now.

    Oh wow! hehe. And yeah I was the same way with The OC. I started it in early s3 (long story) and then that summer I went back and watched s1/s2 and fell in love. It only has 4 seasons so it wont take tooooo long.

    S4 and even 3 are still pricey though. At the records store s3 is like probably $11 and s4 $close to $20. But other places s3 and 4 are still up there while 1 and 2 are cheap as dirt even at Target etc.

    S3 and 4 were the worst yet are more.

    Alright, so I just bought seasons 1 and 2 of The OC on DVD today because I found them quite cheaply.
    So in a few weeks I'll let you guys know what I think
