Ingesting. A new teacher draws Bill out: he admits to a peanut allergy, so Alan sneaks a few into Bill's sandwich to see if Bill's lying. Will he die? Bill's mother blames herself, Alan's father is furious, Sam and Neal find humor and romance beneath the tragedy. Meanwhile, Lindsay calls Nick out on his constant marijuana use, so he challenges her to get high. Experimentation, a babysitting job, and Millie's friendship teach a life lesson that Lindsay may or may not remember in the morning. And what about the weekend sci-fi convention? Written by
Lindsay rolls a joint on the album cover of "Ghosts in the Machine" by The Police. This episode takes place in the spring of 1981 yet "Ghost in the Machine" wouldn't be released until October of that year. See more »

This is an episode with irritations, but still a great script.
The geek's storyline was about Bill, Bill is always a delight but the fact that he was in a coma most of the episode was a bit of a disappointment. At least we got to see his sexy mom. Allen annoys the crap out of me, though. He almost killed Bill by stuffing his sandwich with peanuts and after Bill wakes up even threatens to beat him up. Even though he actually wants to be friends. Allen is a douchebag, a scardicat and a failure.
The freaks storyline has a similar Allen; Nick. Nick is just a pathetic junkie. I have nothing against drugs, but Nick is just an airheaded ignorant fool. Listening to his arguments is like listening to a 5 year old argue. The freaks story has Lindsay trying out pod for the first time, and having a horrible experience resulting into her thinking that life is all a dog's dream. Kind of humorous and I love her friendship with Mellie. Lindsay is in many ways similar to me, only a lot brighter. I find it amazing how much I can relate to her.
Anyway, this episode is one of the least humorous ones, but deeper and handles more serious issues very well. I give it four stars.
