Did You Know?


Summer says that maybe she'll put a dead frog in Seth's X-Men underoos. This is a reference to the fact that in real life Adam Brody put a dead frog in one Rachel Bilson's gift box (it was her birthday) from when they were filming "The Heights". It was from the dissecting scene, and she didn't find it until later on that day. See more »


When Anna and Seth lie in bed talking about being old, Anna holds a piece of wooden puzzle, and the puzzle itself is between them, not so tall and finished. However, when Summer enters the room and ruins the puzzle with her bag, it appears that it's perfectly and absolutely finished, and much taller than the previous scene (before Summer comes).

The Links (#1.16)
6 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Oliver invites everyone to Palm Springs. He sure has a plan to get Marissa and even pretends to taking pills to make her worried about him. Summer doesn't leave Seth and Anna alone. Kirsten makes Caleb cut Hailey off and she decides to leave. Sandy and Jimmy decide to go into restaurant business together.

The story lines are a bit boring right now. I don't care much about the whole Marissa Oliver thing. I find the whole thing with Seth and his women just sad. They are probably trying to have him end up with Summer and it is just impossible to like that as she is just a stupid, nasty bimbo that is hard to root for.

Kirsten is annoying as well. Having daddy give you a house and let you work for him is not the same thing as having career and being independent, so she should get a stick out of her ass. Hailey is way greater than her.
