When Mr & Mrs. Weir go out of town for the weekend, Lindsey hosts a keg party. Sam, Bill, and Neal, worried that the party-goers will get too rowdy, substitute a keg of non-alcoholic beer for the one the freaks have on ice.
When her parents go away for the weekend, Lindsay is in charge of her house, and Daniel convinces her to host a keg party. She likes him and can't say no. Sam fears the party-goers will trash the house, getting him in trouble, so he, Neal, and Bill substitute non-alcoholic beer for the freaks' keg. As the party unfolds, Sam removes all the glass objects, Neal seeks a way to be Lindsay's knight in shining armor, and Bill samples the real beer. Cindy shows up to dazzle Sam, Millie comes to keep her eye on Lindsay, and Kim throws a wrench in Lindsay's hopes with Daniel. When the revelers find money to get another keg, Lindsay knows she's sunk. Is big trouble inevitable? Written by
A reference is made to the death of John Bonham the legendary drummer of Led Zepplin. He died on September 25, 1980 so the approximate date of this episode is a week later around October 2 or so.ETM Harold made a wisecrack about the Sex Pistols which made it sound like the band was still active. The episode was supposed to be set in 1980, but the Sex Pistols had already broken up in early 1978.ETM How can Cindy be a designated driver? She is in the same grade as Sam, so she couldn't be older than 15. ETM See more »
In the scene when Millie goes to the piano to start singing "Jesus is alright with me", we see Sam and Ken in the background on the couch chatting. The following scene shows Sam approaching Ken, on the couch, and sitting next to him to talk to him. See more »
The second episode was a nice step into the season. Perhaps not as strong as the first one, but you got the chance to get to know the characters a little better.
In this episode the Weirs went out and left Lindsay in charge of the house. Her newly found friends convinced her to have a party at her place and of course that bound to have a bad ending.
Lindsay only did it to impress Daniel, who she later finds with Kim making out on her bed.
In the meantime, the Geeks think of a brilliant plan of swapping the beer with fake beer. Neil, who has a huge crush on Lindsay tries to get her attention throughout the episode. She pretty much ignores him right until then end for helping her end the catastrophic party.
Overall, it was a nice second episode. Bill once again had the best lines. Though Millie's 'I like to get high on life' is a classic one.
