Storyline

Nick leaves home when his father sells his drums, and Lindsey is dismayed when her parents let him stay at her house. Her dad seems to treat Nick better than he treats his own daughter. What's going on? Sam gets his chance with Cindy when she breaks up with Todd and suggests that Sam meet her at Mona's party. Neal hears it's a make-out party, so he practices his bottle spinning, and Bill is revolted by the notion of French kissing. Will any of the geeks end up with a first kiss?

Freaks & Geeks delivers once again
16 July 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

With only three episodes left, Freaks & Geeks delivers once again.

In this episode the freaks story mainly deals with Nick becoming homeless after his dad sells his drums. I have said it before and will say it again, I think that Nick is pathetic. His behavior, it's like dealing with a 3 year old. However, I did enjoy the scenes with him and the Weirds. They were cute and all he really needed was to have someone to be taking care of him.

Although I liked the freaks part, I loved the geeks part even more. Bill is hilarious, Martin Starr is a star. In this episode the geeks go to a make-out party. Sam invites Cindy and they finally share an intimate kiss. Is was about time that they hooked up. The Bill scenes were not only hilarious, but also touching. He had to stay seven minutes in heaven with the obnoxious, mean=spirited Vicky. She looked down upon him until he begins to ask her questions. Like, 'how is it being pretty?'. After realizing what a champ the guy really is, she gave him a nice big smooch. It was one of the most memorable moments of the show.
