  • Ricky has girl troubles: Amy, Grace & Adrian.

    This episode was fantastic to me, everyone grew up in their own sort of way. Everything got out in the open. Jack gets dumped by his friend's sister, and out of that, he tells Grace that Ricky is still sleeping with Adrian. It sucks, 'cause in the beginning of the episode, Grace & Ricky were starting to work it out. And it looks like Grace isn't going anywhere, regardless of Ricky cheating. Adrian sleeps with her step brother, ew. And she continues to sleep with Ricky and be posessive. Meanwhile Amy wants Ricky's consent for adoption, but he won't give it to her. Meanwhile Ben is jealous of Ricky, and he tells Ricky that, and Ricky finds out it's a boy. I'm glad he finally stood up for himsef, and took a break from Amy. Seriously, Amy was totally taking Ben for granted, the whole season. Anne goes out with a pastor, and it's revealed Ashley talked the pastor regarding Anne & George's divorce. Meanwhile George eats at his gay co-worker's place, what do you know, they have chocolate cake. It turns out they want to adopt Amy's baby! And Ricky's up for it by the end. The love triangle is still up in the air by the end of the episode. Great episode!

  • Amy didnt act about 5

    Amy grew up in this episode. ( Although when she knocked her sister to the ground and started moping around like crazy over ben it kind of defeated that a bit ) She told Ricky that if he did not want the baby boy then he has to take care of him. Also when she left ben and ricky to think about the baby. Also when she called ricky after her dad told her about Donovon and Leon ( The gay couple ) she took responsibility for the things she was suposed to that ricky still did not. And she took charge of the baby.
  • Ben, Ricky and Amy fight over the baby's future.

    As The Secret Life of the American Teenager continues to crush Gossip Girl in the ratings it also is putting on a much stronger product.

    How awesome was George Juergens in the episode? The way he screams every line is just so hilarious and it is no contest who the best Dad on TV currently is.

    This episode also had some really good drama with the Ben and Ricky dispute and the Ricky and Adrian relationship finally blowing up in their faces. I could have done without the One Tree Hill-esque random step-brother showing up in the girl's life, but the Adrian and Ruben fights are also great television.

    The show may be finally turning around and gaining momentum in its second season.
