One of Mischa Barton's first screen appearances.

I went back and pulled this episode off the net after going through the
complete first three seasons of The O.C., originally because Olivia
Wilde, who I love from House MD, had one of her few earlier major
appearances in most of the first half of season 2 on The OC, but then
because I also fell in love/lust with Mischa Barton in that series. So
I had to then go back and watch it via web downloads from S01E01. The
extras on The OC season one mention Mischa's appearance here as one of
the things that lead them to cast her as primary teen hottie in the OC.
Mischa Barton is truly hot in an elegant, utterly feminine, feisty but
ultimately sexually submissive, captivating way. And smart too.
This was one of her debut screen roles -- and as a middle teen (16)
pulled off a girl two years older than herself -- a real rarity in
Hollywood (where teen hottie and/or real acting roles are nearly always
played by girls at least two years older than the role). She's great in
it, in a spoiled but not deep inside ingenue sort of way.
As for the series itself - ehh. Mischa though I'm gonna follow.
