Storyline

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 <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

Sam Weir: What am I gonna say to Cindy?
Bill Haverchuck: Don't say anything. Be dominant. It's all, all about dominance. I saw this monkey show on PBS, if you talk to her first, it's a sign of weakness and she will not pick you to be her mate.
Sam Weir: Are you drunk?
Bill Haverchuck: I think so, yes I am.
Sam Weir: Aw, man, go into my room, lock the door, and don't drink any more.
Bill Haverchuck: [after Sam leaves] That's very dominant.

Not as strong as the first one
6 July 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

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.

THREE stars.
