Parents-children quality time and the 20th anniversary that everyone but Sandy remembered.
15 March 2008 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

When Sandy forgets his and Kirsten's 20th wedding anniversary, he finds himself going to a lot of trouble to make it up to her. Seth and Ryan's respective relationships with Alex and Lindsay add to the trouble, and doubt falls upon their futures together. Marissa and Julie continue to butt heads over DJ, and Summer wants to take her relationship with Zach to the next level.

Kirsten and Ryan remain without Lindsay in their lives, while they consider her their "friend". Ryan and Seth are babysit by some cops, while Sandy takes Kirsten to their anniversary.

Julie offers DJ some money to dump Marissa. Let's see the next of it.

At the end, at the party, Ryan and Seth were acting like real brothers, they were so cute in a very "punk'd" kinda way!
