Storyline

Caleb spends the night in jail until Sandy bails him out, and all of Orange Country finds out about his troubles via a front page newspaper spread. Seth realizes that he really does make everything about him, as Summer previously suggested, so he decides that he needs to become selfless, for the greater good of man, and just in case Summer might want him back. He decides to get tickets to a Walkmen show at The Bait Shop, but they're sold out. So he accepts a manual labor job at from the co-manager, a punk rock princess by the name of Alex, of cleaning toilets to be rewarded tickets so that he can give them to Summer and Zack to prove his selflessness to her. Summer realizes that Zack is the perfect guy, though he may not be perfect for her, and agrees to arrange a lunch where Zack can meet her Dad, hoping it will go better than when Seth met him last year. Ryan gets assigned a lab partner in his AP Physics class, a new girl named Lindsey, though he's already met her. Earlier that day ... Written by Manda Clark

Meet Alex.
15 March 2008 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

After Caleb is released from custody, he must make some decisions about the Newport Group, and his decisions don't sit well with Kirsten. Seth is determined to win back Summer's friendship, even if it means getting a job. Ryan has a string of awkward encounters with a new girl at school, while Marissa faces being alone.

While the new girl in school believes Ryan is "intellectually challenged", Seth makes Summer think about forgiving him and then he makes her hate him again.

Seth is making an effort with changing for Summer, but she's still saying no. Ryan and Marissa are really over for now and nothing seems to be certain between the adults either.

In this episode we are introduced to Alex, she will have a huge impact on the show, specially for Mariisa.
