Storyline

Lindsay volunteers to help Daniel pass a do-or-die algebra test; after he flakes out on the studying, he figures out how to get her to help him cheat. Sam, meanwhile, is clueless in his sex ed class, so Daniel loans him a porn video that further confuses and dismays the geeks. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

The cup that Kim kicks changes position on the bleachers between shots.

Plot Hole: In the cafeteria, Neil asks Bill and Sam if they had watched "The Dukes of Hazzard" the previous evening. This would be impossible because "The Dukes of Hazzard" aired on Friday Nights. When Chauncey Leopardi reprised his role of Alan White for this episode he had already shaved his head. Sam's line about Alan having head lice was added to explain away any continuity problems.

Goofs

In the scene where Neil, Bill and Sam are eating in the cafeteria, Neil asks if "anyone saw Dukes of Hazzard last night?" Dukes of Hazzard aired on Friday nights, so the next day would be Saturday and there would be no school. See more »

One of the best episodes ye
27 January 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

One of the best episodes yet, if not the best yet.

There was plenty of hilarity. The Geek's storyline was brilliant. Sam learned about sex, watched Daniel's porno and became uncomfortable around sex. Fredrcks eventually told him that those movies are mostly fake which comforted Sam greatly.

I liked Neil's part of the story, he'd be a porn star if he could.

The Freak's storyline was about cheating. Daniel -- the handsome devil that he is convinced Lindsay to help him cheat by playing the old 'poor me, everyone thought I was dumb' tape. Lindsay fell for it but teacher Kowchevski didn't.

Once Daniel was forced to prove his innocence he blew it. So to save his ass again, he told the same old story which led Lindsay to realize how stupid she had been for believing him. She cracked up and couldn't stop laughing.

FOUR stars for this episode, we got to know Daniel a little better.
