The course of love doesn't run straight. Ken's new girlfriend Amy, a tuba player in the school band, reveals something about herself that throws him for a loop. At the same time, Sam realizes that dating Cindy is different from imagining dating her. As Ken and Sam think about breaking up with their girlfriends and seek advice from family and friends, Mr. Rosso arranges for Lindsay to ask the first question during Vice President Bush's visit to the school. Her parents hope it's a way to get attention to the family sporting goods store, Lindsay wants to ask something interesting, and Bush's aides have something else in mind. Written by

. . . Seems like a pretty good reason to cut ties with someone. Really, how could one not like that movie? Shocking discoveries abound here; Sam sees how boring (and patently awful) his dream girl is, and personal secrets about Ken's girlfriend leave him deeply conflicted. As funny as this is (no question), both storylines are handled with an impressive level of sensitivity. Sam's worked for so long to get Cindy's attention, but they just don't mesh. And Seth Rogen does some of his best work channeling Ken's despair.
It's never a sad episode, but you end up rooting for both characters to move beyond this. There are plenty of funny moments, not the least of them Ben Stiller as a dissatisfied Secret Service agent. Pretty much all of the show's best qualities are right here, and the little things really do add up to something special.
