Ricky fears that he is being pushed out of his son's life, Ashley feels neglected at home, and Adrian's cozy little family situation might suddenly be disrupted.

  • Everyone skips school and Amy goes on a trip.

    6.5
    This episode was very horrible. The new counsler is extremely annoying, and possibly the worst actress ever. There was no plot, and the dialogue consisted of two words. "Oral Sex" Seriously every single character said that word at least three times. The whole skipping school thing was pointless, and Madison and Lauren are stupid, and have no reason to be on the show. A few good points of the episode were Amy, and her mother. Even though Amy was only in a total of two scenes, they were sweet, and you could understand why she wanted to stay in Palm springs for awhile with John. She wanted to get away from all the drama at home and school. We also met Maria, Ben's other girlfriend, who jumps into his lap, and looks very happy to see him. It was weird that Ashley was smiling when Ben was hugging her. Ricky was pretty decent this episode, he figures out he should get joint custody for John, after Amy threatens that shes going to move to Palm Springs and take John with her. Another unnecessary scene was Henry, Ricky, Madison, and Lauren telling Ben not to break up with Amy, I really don't think its any of their buisness, although Ricky did have a good reason. Ashley needs to change her facial expressions, she walks and talks like a robot, and her friend Griffen isn't any better, I mean how many times can the word, gay be used in a show. Everyone he meets someone hes like, "Hi, I'm Griffen, and I'm gay Overall, I am very disappointed in the episode, and I can only hope and pray that next week is better.

  • No Amy, no unecassary drama! :D

    9.5
    Okay, so this episode review, I know most of you might disagree considering the rating of this episode. But I thought this episode was light and fun, and almost free of drama. This episode was free of Amy being in the picture, she's really not being fair to Ricky by not bring John home. Adrian's right, Ricky has got to fight for what's his. The whole gang taking a day off to go to the beach was hysterical, and just what this show needed. Ben thinking of breaking up with Amy, his Italian girlfriend happens to show up on the beach! It is revealed that both Grace & Jack cheated over summer, but it looks like these guys are going to make it through after the oral sex fiasco. Everything else was just fine. Reunited all friends again, it was really great fun episode.moreless
  • Silly.

    6.7
    Who edited this episode? I mean, seriously? I want to know the answer to that question because this was the most childish episode of the show I have ever seen and yes, that is quite an accomplishment.



    The entire cast decides to skip school, which is not only out of character, but just dumb period, and resulted in them going to the beach? Why? To just talk about meaningless drivel?



    This show set record viewing figures for ABC Family, which means you can expect more episodes like this, but this was not a good way to return from the lengthy hiatus.moreless
  • Everyone skips school.

    7.5
    Funny episode! It lacked some drama, but I thought it was pretty funny. Amy and Anne - My least favourite characters. They skip town because they don't want to deal with anything in their lives. It's not really all that exciting. Ashley - I love Ashley in every episode. She's actually most normal person on the show. Ben - I want him to break up with Amy. I'm glad that Italian girl showed up. Ricky - I kind of feel sorry for Ricky because Amy is unsure of whether she should come home or not. Adrian - It will be interesting seeing the drama of Adrian's mom taking the job. Jack and Grace - Their relationship got so complicated. I'm hoping they stay together. Grace is so funny asking Griffin about gay sex. The new counselor is so weird. I'm hoping the character Mac because more of a main character now. Alice is hilarious, and I love how she calls Henry, Hank. I would like to see Lauren and Tracey in more episodes.moreless

    • Joe: Ben Boykewich. Son of Leo Boykewich, the Sausage King. The Sausage King is single, by the way. Loaded and single. Although, he's engaged to a hooker. So Ben left campus with the all-star quarterback, Jack Pappas, who just broke up with his girlfriend because he wanted oral sex with her but she said no. Oh, and driving them is the drummer.
      Dr. Bink: Ah, Ricky Underwood.
      Joe: Yeah, that guy. In another car is Adrian Lee, the school slut, along with her best friend, the still-Christian-but-former-virgin Grace Bowman who would not have oral sex with the aforementioned quarterback. And with the two of them is Ashley Juergens. Ashley. Try to keep her out of it.
      Dr. Bink: Why, because you have a thing for her?
      Joe: No, because she'd kill me. She and her protector, this Griffin guy. He's the only guy in the girl's car, he's...he's gayer than gay Gayerson.
      Dr. Bink: That's pretty gay.
      Joe: Yeah. Not that anyone has a problem with that. Anyone comfortable with their sexuality at least.
      Dr. Bink: Anyone else?
      Joe: Oh, yeah, I forgot, there's a clown car with the sidekicks. Henry and Alice, whose relationship is so hot, it's contributing to global warming. And with them is Lauren and Allison.
      Dr. Bink: Lesbians?
      Joe: Not yet. But maybe down the line.
      Dr. Bink: And they've all left campus to have sex together?
      Joe: No, no, with anyone they can find.

    • Joe: You were fired from your last job for having sex with a student, you received your PhD from the Internet and your husband left you for another guy.
      Dr. Bink: One, the other guy was his cousin. Two, there are some excellent schools on the Internet. And three, the student to whom you are referring was 18 before we went to the prom and we did it as a political statement and there was no sex involved, I just like to dance.

    • Ashley: We are one of the most normal families in the whole state of California. We are one of the most normal families in the country. We are one of the most normal families in the whole world.
      Adrian: You're not even the most normal family in the neighborhood.
      Ashley: I didn't say we were.

    • Kathleen: (about her daughter) It's almost impossible to know what to tell them these days. I'd almost rather they have oral sex than sex. Then she couldn't get pregnant. But then if they have oral sex, then she could get an STD. Ugh!
      Dr. Bink: Uh, what's the Christian thought on that? On oral sex?
      Kathleen: The thought is, oral sex or any kind of sex before marriage is wrong. The reality is, teens are doing it anyway. Not all teens, but a lot of teens, and Christian teens too, and...Christian adults, and Christian...parents, and...give me a break, okay? I'm a widow!
      Dr. Bink: No judgment. I'm just trying to keep the kids in the classroom and out of the bedroom.
      Kathleen: Aren't we all?

    • Grace: I just want every time to be like the first time.
      Jack: Yeah. Yeah. The first time was great.
      Grace: It was great.
      Jack: But it could be greater, you know? As our love gets greater.
      Grace: You know what? Having sex ruined everything for us.
      Jack: No, no, no. Not continuing to have sex ruined everything for us.

    • Lauren: Amy may be too busy to notice, but we're not.
      Ben: Notice what?
      Madison: That you're thinner and paler and...nervousier.
      Ben: That's not even a word. You're supposed to be a wordsmith, Madison. Uh, speaking of which, I've gotta get to English class.
