  • Uneventful.

    Average, mediocre, uneventful, any of those could work to describe this episode of ABC Family's smash hit The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Just writing this review I cannot even remember anything that happened in tonight's ep. They introduced a new character, an unappealing, personality less pregnant girl, who Amy has befriended (as opposed to yelling at which she saves for everybody else).

    Was this person needed though? I can't see Ricky, Ben or anybody having an affair with her so I do not see what they will do with her. She looks like she belongs on Make it or Break It.moreless
  • Lets talk about sex.

    This episode was really just a filler in my opinion, it wasn't that great. Anne spent the whole night on bedrest. Amy continues to try to be a "woman" but after the whole season, thinking she's all grown up, she finally finds out she is a teenager. George gets a guide dog to help with Anne. Ashley & Mark's relationship develops. I've noticed this, but every single time people are talking about Amy or something she shouldn't know about, she just pops out of nowhere saying "What!?" or she just gives her commentary on the conversation, it happened twice in this episode. It's funny at times though. Heather, a pregnant teen, wants to show Ben a good time, but Amy says otherwise, as she tries to get Ben's attention. In the end, everything is resolved. Theres no big ending, the most eventful thing that happened in this episode was Adrian breaking up with Ricky. By the way, I liked how Ricky defended Frace as she was talking about sex, in front of the whole church. He's been helping her out since day one. Grace's plot on talking about sex with the church people was probably the highlight of the episode.moreless
  • Season 2, Episode 10

    Ok. Was it nessecary to add a new pregnant teen to this show. I mean come on. She had no point of being there. Just another stupid plot to get Amy whining and jealous of Ben. So, I thought it was pretty pointless. Anne goes on bed rest. It was kinda stupid that George made everyone stay home just because she was on bed rest. I mean Amy never goes out. One night. The only reason this episode got a 7 is because of Grace. Her TAG - Teen Abstinince Group was the funniest thing I have ever seen. I was cracking up. I also liked the Adrian and Ricky storyline, but I'm kina annoyed with them, they wanna be exclusive but they don't. I mean come on.moreless
  • A pregnant girls asks Ben out on a date, but Ben goes out with her as a friend, and Amy decides to be friends with her too. Grace wants everyone to be informed about having sex too early. Anne is on bed rest and George wants the whole family to help out.moreless

    Amy - Amy has gotten way better in this episode. I actually feel sympathy for her. My parents never tell me what to do, and if they did, I don't think I would listen. I liked how Amy all of sudden changed at the end of the episode. I liked that she was talked to that pregnant girl.

    Anne - Is on bed rest. I don't know why everyone is making such a big deal of it.

    George - George wasn't funny in this episode, he was more dramatic. I know that he's trying to be a father, but I don't like how he thinks he can tell Ashley and Amy what to do. I do like that he wants everyone to help out and give their mom company. Ashley - Mark seems like a nice guy. I hope they are able to go out. It seems that Griffin has gotten to know Mark, so I guess that Mark will be able to date Ashley.

    Griffin - One thing I don't like about his character is that he is too overprotective Ashley. But he is still a great character. I love that he had that talk about being gay with Mark's mom. Ben - Ben's a good guy. I'm glad that he wants to be friends with that pregnant girl.

    Ricky and Adrian - Poor Adrian. She wants to marry Ricky in the future, but Ricky doesn't see himself married. I'm glad they broke up though.

    Jack and Grace - I like that Grace wants to inform everyone that they should wait to have sex until they are married. But I don't like how it was all about her telling everyone that she regrets having sex with Jack.

    Lauren and Madison - Madison is such a funny character. And Lauren is funny too. I still wish they had a bigger part on the show. Henry and Alice - They were only in a couple scenes but, I find them to funny too.

    Tom and Tammy - They are so funny. I love how they are so mad and angry all the time.

    I give this episode a 9/10.moreless

    • George: Let's talk.
      Amy: I don't want to talk.
      George: I do. I'm your dad, and I would think after all we've been through with you this year that you'd want to talk to me, but whether or not you talk to me, I'm gonna talk to you. Ames, you can't just do whatever you want. I'm really mpressed with how much you've grown up this past year and how well you care for a baby at 16, but still, you're not grown up. You're not 18, and you can't do whatever you want. You and your sister and your mother and me, we're a family, and a family really isn't about letting each person do whatever they want. It's about each person doing what's good for the family, and that's how we learn to do what's good for the world, and I know you're all into doing what's good for the world. But guess what, sweetie? It starts by doing what's good for the family. And it wasn't good for you to run off and be with Ben tonight. You need to be with your mother, and I would hope that at this point, once you saw that she was on bed rest, you would come to me and say, "Hey, I was supposed to go out with Ben tonight, but I see Mom needs me. She needs all of us, so I'll stay home." Then I would know you were growing up, if you said something like that. Ames, when you disrespect me, I lose respect for you, and you know that's not right. And you're only choosing to do something that's not right out of your own selfish interests, or just out of spite.
      Amy: You've done a few things out of your own selfish interests, or just out of spite!
      George: We're talking about you.

    • Grace: (speaking at her teen abstinence group) Let me start with a little poem I've written called I'm Sorry, Jesus...."I'm sorry, Jesus, but I had sex. I don't know what happened, it's so complex. I promised I would wait until I was wed, and then despite that promise, I ended up in bed. I never thought anything could feel so good. I thought maybe wives just do it because they think they should. But after all was said and done, I did feel guilty for having so much fun. So now I focus on being a surgeon, as a way to not think about being a virgin." (dead silence in the room) It's not really a serious poem. It's more of a limerick. I wanted to open with a joke, but when I Googled "Christian jokes on sex", I couldn't find anything. Lighten up, people. It's okay to laugh about our frustrations and desires and failures. I'm laughing.
      Tom: You're not funny.
      Tammy: Boo!

    • George: (to Amy about Anne being on bed rest) No, you're not going anywhere tonight. We're a family.
      Amy: No, we're not. You and Mom are speaking to each other. We're not a family. I don't need to ask you if I can go out.
      George: Oh, really? You're 16, Amy. You're my daughter, and you're gonna do what I tell you. Tonight, you're staying home with your mother and me and Ashley.
      Amy: And if I don't?
      George: If you don't?!?
      Amy: Dad, I'm 16 with a baby of my own. I think I should be able to decide whether or not I'm going on a date.
      George: You're 16 with a baby of your own. You don't make good decisions! We've already established that!

    • Adrian: Fine, we'll go. But we can have sex before we go.
      Ricky: I don't know, Adrian. I'd feel funny having sex and then just walking into a church.
      Adrian: Why? You don't think we're doing anything wrong, do you?
      Ricky: No, but still, I mean, sex and then church? Sex and church don't go together.
      Adrian: That's church and state. Church and state don't go together.

    • Ashley: Look, it's no big deal. We're just gonna hang out with Ricky and Adrian.
      Griffin: You're just gonna hang out with two sluts?
      Ashley: Hey, that slut happens to be the father of my nephew!

    • Ashley: Speaking of which, do you mind if I go out tonight?
      George: With your new friend Griffin? Not at all. You can go out with your number one gay anytime you want!

    • Grace: It would take tremendous courage for Jack to speak tonight.
      Madison: Um, excuse me. I couldn't help but overhearing. For Jack to speak about what?
      Grace: Oh, you should come too, Madison. I'm gonna be speaking about not having sex at my church tonight.
      Madison: Well, I've always thought that you should never have sex in church at all. Ever.

    • Madison: So what are we doing tonight? Grace wants us to come to this thing at her church.
      Lauren: I'm busy. (Madison laughs) I have something to do!
      Madison: Is that like role-playing in case some guy you don't like asks you out?

    • Griffin: What are your intentions here?
      Mark: Guess.
      Ashley: (smiles) I like that.
      Griffin: Ashley's made a commitment not to date in high school.
      Mark: I don't want to go out with her. I just want to marry her and have children with her, in that order.

    • Grace: Okay, I have an idea. What if you and Ricky and Ashley and her date and Amy and Ben come to my teen abstinence group tonight?
      Adrian: I think it's too late for me to join that group...
