  • One of the cutest and most moral episodes.

    Rampant hormones are affecting the cast of Popular, all are a bit randy and wanting to loose their virginity. I like this episode it deals with one issue in multiple ways and shows the various viewpoints, no one has the same perspective or experience and almost all characters are involved (except Mary Cherry and Nicole, although I guess a lack of male characters on the show could be to blame there, and well Nicole is apparently not a virgin anyway).

    The scenes with Harrison are very cute.moreless
  • A fabulous episode!A must see for all fans,and one of the reasons I watch this show.

    Once again,the writer of \\\"Popular\\\" does an immaculate job of entertaining the audience.In a laugh out loud episode,Sam and Brooke make a bet:Brooke has to proove her and Josh connect in more ways than one,and Sam has to find a boyfriend by the end of the week. Meanwhile, a song has attracted the attention of all the students at Kennedy High.Carmen and Sugar Daddy meet online and lie about themselves,but in the end fess up to eachother.Harrison and Lily on the other hand decide to try and have sex with eachother,but in the end Lily backs out,claiming she\\\'s not attacted to Harrison.Twisting up the plot a little,Sam convinces Carmen\\\'s hot older brother Leo to pretend to be her boyfriend,and Brooke and Josh finally go all the way,but break up in the end.moreless

    • April Tuna: Loli Pop rocks!
      May Tuna: ...and I love cat food.

    • Lily: All I need is permission from a health administrator and I can pass out condoms. Can I have your blessing?
      Nurse Glass: Sorry, troublemaker. I'm sucking the Mercury right out of your rule-breaking thermometer. See, I've taken the temperature of your little pro-sex plan and I'm throwing down a big ol' bucket of ice chips.

    • Josh: Why do you think Brooke and I have lasted so long?
      Sugar Daddy: Dude, cause you both look like models.

    • April Tuna Here's the 411, nosy butt-face. Leo, here's, a broke dreamer looking for direction in his life and to make money until he finds his way, he's offering tennis lessons. Any sport with 'love' in it is a sport at which he excels. Got it?
      May Tuna: I can't wait to smack your tennis balls around on the court, Leo.

    • Sam: If I want a boyfriend, I'll just have to sign up for one.

    • Sam: (about her ankle) I think the swelling has gone down.
      Jane: Her swelling has gone down, but you know his is just beginning.

    • Nicole: Let me give you some advice, girl to stick figure. Endorse something you know a little bit about. If you're looking for a worthy cause, may I suggest breast implants. You're boyish figure is absolutely chilling.

    • April Tuna: Loli-Pop's number one smash single has single-handedly put me in touch with my own sizzling sexuality.

    • Sam: Mom, we have Cinemax. We don't need to discuss sex.
