  • They're back together, and Cynthia goes overboard

    Devon and Sam decide to give their relationship another shot, despite Sam's "10 year plan". Devon convinces her that it will be a lonely 10 years if she only goes to college to learn. Sam promises Devon that they will go to the "Halloween Freakfest" at Colony together, but Cynthia misunderstants Sam and thinks that she's invited too. Stuck in the middle, she decides to tell Cynthia that this will be her and Devon's first date, and she has to do this with him. Surprisingly, Cynthia understands, but later shows up anyway, trashed. Devon is annoyed at Cynthia for being the third wheel, and they soon tell her off. Cynthia leaves the club in an emotional breakdown only to hook up with a random guy, waiting outside. She takes him back to her dorm, and then demands that he leave. Distessed by what she did and past issues, she turns suicidal, climbing out on the ledge outside the dorm. It's up to Sam to save her, and she does. One of my favorites so far, Sam's a hero now.moreless

    • (Talking about Lee moving across the country and not saying goodbye to Dawn)

      Lee: Please, I sent an E-mail.
      Dawn: So like what? I'm like K.Fed and you're Britney?

      This is a reference to how Britney Spears informed Kevin Federline of their divorce. Kevin received the text message with the message during an interview in Toronto with MuchMusic VJ Matte Babel to promoting his CD, "Playing With Fire."

    • Devon: (Talking to Sam about their Halloween costumes) I think we should as something real nasty, like Jigsaw and one of his victims.

      This is a reference to the Saw movies. Jigsaw is the serial killer from the movies, who administers various lethal tests to his victims and claims that his victims' fates depend on their will to survive.
