Jeff Rosso (as Dave 'Gruber' Allen)


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 <>

Did You Know?


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 »

A good Episode
1 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a very funny episode and is a good episode at the beginning of the series where the audience sees Lindsay trying to fit in with the "freaks" by throwing a party while her parents are away, Sam tries to talk her out of it but she persists in throwing it.I think it is the funniest of the early season episodes with many jokes you will find yourself laughing out loud throughout the episode Spoiler: Funniest parts are during the sober students skit when Harris as "Bob" tells Millie as "Mary" that he like her party then asks her if anyone has cocaine but then later decides that he can have coke anytime and would rather watch Millie open her presents. And then later in the episode when, during the party, Millie breaks into "Jesus is just alright with me" and Nick starts joining in
