  • Oh man just superb.

    Is it possible for a show to always be this consistently good every episode! There's always a little bit of everything; phenomenal character development, amazing story development, and a bag overflowing with comedy and jokes. First off even for a guy that doesn't get emotionally moved by romance stuff, Seth proposing to Summer was probably one of the best romantic scenes I've ever seen. The acting was just fabulous and how everything was built up to that point was just great execution. And then there is the multiple developments going on on the adult side of things, such as Julie's little tinkering with the business, but even more amazing is how the show is able to add another point of leverage in here in the form of Frank Atwood, Ryan's father. Just amazing story development, but of course the comedy is always going to be there shining in the background with Seth always saying the wrong things at the wrong time.moreless
  • Another funny trip!

    Taylor! Always crazy and funny!

    Seth! Never do what Summer wants, always been saved by Ryan!

    I loved this episode! Taylor talking about the tooth paste, the pregnancy test, the thief et, and the jorney to take Taylor's bag back were the funniest moments!

    Seth was very insensitive when he tried to high five with Summer, thinking was Taylor's test but later he finally man it up asking Summer to get married with him. But after the result it was foolish! ahhahaha

    The final revelation about Ryan's dad was weird. I mean, he was in jail, used to beat on ryan's mom and now shows up on the story like a serious man with a job and everything...It doesnt make sense!moreless
  • THE OC

    I loved the beginning of this episode. It was so cool, and I loved how it switched between Summer and Taylor in the bathroom and Seth and Ryan outside. Seth, Ryan, Summer, and Taylor go on a road trip to Las Vegas for New Years Eve. In the bathroom an alien girl steals Taylor's purse, and she has Summer's pregnancy test in the purse. They have all have to chase the alien whore to get the pregnancy test to see if Summer is pregnant. They get back to Newport and Seth proposes to Summer. Summer says yes, and it turns out she's not pregnant.moreless
  • The Oc

    Seth, Summer, Ryan, and Taylor start driving to Las Vegas but their plans get messed up when taylor and summer are in the bathroom checking summers pregnancy test and an alien slut steals taylor's purse where the pregnancy test is. so everyone gets in the care and follow the alien slut to a weird alien party. while at the party summer and taylor leave seath and ryan because they are giving them a hard time about the pregnancy test that they don't know to who it belongs. seth and ryan find the alien slut that has the purse and steal it, then they make a quick getaway in one of ryans fans cars. when back at summers house seth comes and proposes to summer then they find out that she isn't pregnant.

    i really liked this episode. it was different but it was really good. i love that seth and summer got engaged too :)

    and the end was awesome, with ryan's father, i was so scared he was going to be a killer or something.moreless
  • The OC. Season 4 Episode 8

    Okay, maybe Seth acted like a two-year-old kid (especially during the whole “high five” thing”) and Summer was definitely too hysterical; however, I can’t help but think Team Sethummer is just lovely all the way. It’s good Summer isn’t pregnant, though. They’re definitely too young. The proposal was surprising and I can’t wait to see what is going to happen.

    I know everyone here loves Taylor and I do understand that she:

    * represents all what Ryan needs at the moment.

    * is funny. :D

    * has such brilliant ideas when a problem comes up.

    ... but, gee, after this episode I just realize I can’t stand her uber perky self!

    Kaitlin-Bullit moments were hilarious. Besides, it was such a sweet moment when Kaitlin owns up to Julie she kind of misses her father. I do figure Kaitlin’s character is growing up, and it’s nice to see it.

    And it turns out Mr. Atwood is back in town. Well, I guess Ryan’s reaction won’t take that long.moreless
