Did You Know?


Donny keeps calling Luke (Chris Carmack) "Abercrombie & Fitch". This is an inside joke because Carmack's biggest credit before 'The O.C.' was being an Abercrombie & Fitch model. See more »


While Marissa and Luke are talking at the Crab Shack on a table, Ryan and Donnie are talking at the bar by the register. When the camera focuses on Marissa and Luke, the spot where Ryan and Donnie are talking, can be seen behind Luke, but there's no sign of Ryan nor Donnie, until the camera focuses again on them.

Summer: What are you doing? I need you to introduce me to...
Seth: You know what Summer? No.
Summer: What?
Seth: All you've done this entire evening is use me to meet rich, older guys.

Seth: Do you have any idea how depressing it is to listen to you babbling away about mergers and acquisitions while some guy just stares at your boobs?

The Outsider (#1.5)
30 August 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In this episode Kirsten goes with other women on a trip. Sandy helps Jimmy with his legal issues and they have some men time together. Marissa and Ryan have a sort of a date. And Ryan has a job where he is with a guy from his old neighborhood. Seth gets invited to one of their parties and brings that guy to a party where he has a fight with Luke and it gets ugly.

This episode was alright. It was mainly nice to see the whole Jimmy story develop and see the complication of his relationships. Him and Sandy having good time together was pretty good as well. Lets see what Julie's decision will be.

The whole part with the gun was actually well done. I actually expected it to end worse
