    Nancy and Peter do something drastic in order to be together and he says that he is willing to overlook her occupation as well. Conrad, Doug, and Nancy get introduced to their new grow house and Celia sends Isabelle to fat camp where she joins in and pulls a vital muscle. Haylia is infatuated with the man next door who is Nation of Islam and his bean pies. Conrad is discovered by Dean to have slept with Celia and he offers him a free chance to hit him but he takes a rain check and Silas tries to make amends with Megan.moreless
  • "Insert your Randy Johnson and start pitching"

    That pretty much sums up one of the funniest scenes on the show so far as Andy schools Shane on the art of masterbation. Just classic. I didnt expect Nancy's cover to get blown so early by the D.E.A. guy. I thought the writers would play that out over the course of the season and instead they take us there head on and I like that. It's a different approach to take and its another example why the show is so good.moreless
  • An extremley well written funny episode.

    An extremley well written funny episode. This is an episode not to missed. Staring with Nancy realising she is way over her head when her 'business' is threatened by her personal relationship with Peter, whom is a DEA agent and knows she is a drug dealer.

    The best lines come from Andy's well informed frank discussion with Shane about puberty issues.

    Nancy has had tried to keep her family stable by enforcing the importance of the family dinners and this episode marks the slipping of it's importance as she is late for the family dinner. Nancy also realises as she is late for family dinner and where everyone answers that there day was fine, that they may be covering up something, as she also answers that her day was 'okay' and doesn't let on that she eloped and married Peter in a quick wedding.moreless
  • Peter is still in the picture and on Nancy's mind. Shane and Andy discuss the issue of puberty, masterbation and methods!!! Silas gets even more of a jerk in a bizarre way. Isabelle and Celia have words and so does Dean and Conrad.moreless

    Nancy is still trying to come to terms with Peter and his unexpected bombshell, she gets hit with a problem with the house plumbing thanks to Shane and his arrival into puberty. Andy comes out with his best set of lines in this series, when he talks through the issue of masterbation with Shane, the methods and how not to be embarrassed regarding this issue, but also how to incorporate this harmlessly into his day to day life, as Andy believes that if he manages to perform solo to a high level, when it comes time for duets, he will be magnificent.

    Well Silas did not do as i initially thought he might, which was to propose marriage to Megan following last weeks episode, but he stoops to an all time low by trying to get her pregnant by putting holes in the condom, it's usually the girls trick for entrapment, but I suppose it can work both ways. The writers must have had a field day on these two characters, they surely had the best story and lines upto this part of the series.

    Conrad and Dean come face to face and the result is a lot of banter, good humoured banter is a must and is used to excellent use throughout Weeds. Isabelle and Celia storyline grows with maturity, they both work off each other very well, but thats the skill and talent fo the young actress who plays her.moreless
  • Nancy is moving on, businesswise and in her private life.

    What a magnificent episode in which a lot, and I mean A LOT happens but for me it was defined by three scenes. One hilarious, one disturbing and one shocking.

    The hilarious scene, of course, is the fabulous scene where Andy gives young, slighly-less-innocent Shane tips on masturbation That scene is an instant classic full of wit and colourful language. The lines were perfect and the delivery was masterful. The Andy character is a freeloader, but this was certainly so for his greatest moment, excellent acting.

    The disturbing scene was Silas pricking holes in a condom. That is a truly despicable act quite apart from the health issues. When the aim clearly is to prevent your girlfriend from leaving town and going to PRINCETON by getting her pregnant it is unforgivable. To think I liked Silas.

    The shocking scene was of course the marriage. I for one did not see that coming in episode 3 of this season!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • When Joseph comes over to visit Heylia, she hurriedly gives Nancy her stuff in an effort to quickly get rid of her. In alternating shots of Nancy, as she tries to make conversation with Joseph, we first see her purse looking neat and then we see a large bag of grass conspicuously sticking out of the top. It goes back and forth like that for several shots.

    • Goof: Peter says there are only 400 DEA agents in the entire country, and that Nancy is flying below his radar. In fact, the DEA has 5,500 agents, nearly 11,000 employees, and $2.5 billion budget.

    • During their family dinner Nancy takes a beer, sits and puts it on the table, you can see it's not opened. Then she pops a pill, the camera shows the uncle for a moment and next thing you see is Nancy drinking from her beer.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Nancy: Talk to Shane about jerking off.
      Andy: I'm all over it.

    • Lupita: If only Shane had started whacking when Mr. Judah was alive.

    • Celia: Rise and shine little girl.
      Isabelle: What? School's not till eight.
      Celia: Yes, but boot camp is at six.
      Isabelle: (sits up in bed) Boot camp?
      Celia: Ya, you don't want to be the fattest girl at fat camp this summer. Do you?

    • Andy: (talking to Shane about masturbation) Your little body's changing, it's all good, believe me. The problem now is every time we jerk the gherkin we end up with a lot of unwanted sticky white stuff everywhere, right? So first order of business, no more socks. They are expensive, gumming up the works, plumbing wise. So you might be thinking to yourself, well Uncle Andy, what am I supposed to do with all that pearl jam if I cant spew it into Mr. sock? Glad you asked. You can have a lovely time tugging your tiger in the shower each morning, that eliminates the need for a goo glove. But the day is long, masturbation is fun, so unless you wanna take 4 or 5 showers every day, we're gonna need some other options here. So let's go with the basics. Tissues: perfectly acceptable backstop for all that creamy Italian, which can be rough when dry on such soft, sensitive skin, not to mention it can stick to your dick head like a *beep* band-aid, ouch. From there we move on to more lubricated flack catchers. Specifically, bananas: step 1, peel the banana. Step 2, slip the peel over your Randy Johnson, start pitching. Now for extra credit, warm up the peel in the microwave, NOT TOO HOT, serious yowza. Also, olive oil, moisturizer, honey, spit, butter, hair conditioner and Vaseline can all be used for lube. In my opinion, the best lube, is lube. So save your allowance and invest in some soon. Alright moving on, when you tug your Thomas on the toilet, shoot right into the bowl. In bed, soft t-shirts, perhaps a downy hand towel of your very own that you don't mind tossing after tossing. There's no such thing as polishing the raised scepter of love too much. It reduces stress, it enhances immune functions, also, practice makes perfect. So work on your control now while you're a solo artist, you'll be playing some long, happy duets in the future. Alright, class dismissed. (Shane starts to leave) Hey... (Shane stops and Andy tosses him a banana) Homework!

    • Nancy: Do we have any aspirin?
      Shane: Too many aspirin can give you bleeding ulcers.
      Nancy: Thanks for the tip Shane...

  • NOTES (2)


    • After Dean confronts Conrad about sleeping with his wife, Nancy says to herself: "Oh gib, I'm surrounded by the f***ing Lost Boys". This is a reference to the 1987 film The Lost Boys.

    • After returning from Las Vegas, Nancy wears a shirt that says "Fear & Loathing" in reference to Hunter S. Thompson's novel Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
