"Mensch" is a German noun meaning a "human". In Yiddish, "mensch" roughly means "a good person." It means a particularly good person, like a stand-up guy. (Sandy: That's 'cause, Ryan Atwood ... you're a mensch. And after tonight, I'm gonna tell you what that means.) See more »


The gang wants to throw an honorary bar mitzvah for Ryan to raise money for Johnny's knee surgery. But the proceeds from Johnny suing the person that ran him over should have covered his surgery. See more »


Kirsten: I came to see how you were.
Julie: I'm great. Some of the neighbours are having cockfights in an hour, using stray dogs. It's a holiday tradition. My money's on the feisty Weimaraner.
Kirsten: Good, because I'm awful.
Julie: I'm spitting Skoal into a can, drinking wine from a bottle I unscrewed, and living in a home that, if I wanted to, I could put in reverse. I'm beyond awful.

Best - Chrismukkah - Ever!
25 March 2008 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Chrismukkah has returned to the Cohen house and Seth suggests to have a Bar Mitzvah to Ryan to raise money for Johnny's knee surgery after his accident but Ryan then pulls out after seeing Johnny and Marissa get too close.

Julie is being so selfless letting Marissa having her fun during the holidays, while she was spending them alone in the trailer.

When he went to talk to Johnny about coming to the party, Ryan was looking like a really hard-working future architect and society climber. Not to mention how hot he was looking in the expensive kind of way. Follor him closely in that scene, can you believe he once was a really poor troubled teen from same dangerous city suburb? I mean, compared to Johnny Ryan was looking really matured.

Starting with this episode, we can see more of Summer's father, specially him being with Julie Cooper.
