By annual tradition the Raven boys are -willingly- auctioned for charity till midnight. Overeager go-go-dancer Tim fails to please the shallow girls, but $8 say he can do chores for Deb, whose warning to bring a clothes change as it will be sweaty is totally, Tim-optimistically-hornily misunderstood, in a way that almost shocks even Dan... Jake in cuddly mascot-costume fetches $100, but is furious to find from whom: his ex Nicki, who walked out on him and their baby daughter Jenny... Lucas fetched $115 from Haley, class act 'boy toy' Nathan $112.53 from Peyton (at Haley's anxious urging). Last available male Mouth absurdly $200 from Brooke, who didn't get in earlier as she brought no cash; she even takes him in the limousine she ordered for a hunkier catch, they become better friends the either hoped but she realizes how shallow her party life is when a hunk she dated that week already remembered her name, while she didn't remember him at all. While Nathan and Peyton just played and ... Written by KGF Vissers

It's the Annual Boy Toy Auction for the Ravens Basketball Team... And It's Awesome!
9 December 2007 | by (North Queensland, Australia) – See all my reviews

It's the 'Annual Boy Toy Auction' for the Ravens Basketball team!!! Lucas, Nathan, Jake, and even Mouth are auctioned off for a combined total of over $500 between the four of them, while Tim's the ownership of Deb for the night at $8 :D

Haley buys Lucas, Peyton (in Hayley's urgent request) buys Nathan, Jake's bought by an unknown woman - turning out to be Nicki, his ex and abandoning-mother of his child - and Brooke, in desperation, buys Mouth for the record amount of the night: $200.

Finally, Hayley & Lucas have a chance to go back to old times, where "things used to be so much simpler." It was good to see them chatting again and playing a kind of 'skirmish' game with water balloons (some filled with milk :D), however they had a mini-argument after Lucas discovered she'd gotten a tattoo with Nathan's basketball jersey number (#23) on it, leaving him sickened with his not-extremely-well-like brother. They talked about it and Hayley told of it being her decision to get it done, and that Nate didn't even know she had it done. By the end of the night it resolved and their 'revisit' of one another made them grown closer and make up for some of the lost time since Hayley began a relationship with Nathan.

Peyton & Nathan talk about Hayley, and Peyton sees how much Nathan cares for Hales. Although Nathan admits he seemed to be hitting on Peyton earlier in the night, his humiliation of the attempt is much lesser than Peyton's, where she accidentally told him that he was "good in bed".

I don't know about the rest of you guys, but Jake standing up to Nicki was my highlight of the episode! Maybe I just love my vengeance and standing-up-for-yourself-without-backing-down attitude, but it filled me with great joy to see her not given an inch of sympathy :D My favorite line of the whole episode was by a forceful Jake; "You should recognize this next move, Nicki. You perfected it. It's called turning my back and leaving you behind."

Brooke gave Mouth the "best night of his life", although she has a darker, less optimistic approach of it (her lifestyle). To top off riding in a limousine, Brooke took Mouth to a strip club and gave him a kiss good night. ("What was that for?", Mouth would've thought.) The rules for the auction were that the "toy boy" (or in this case, the DJ for the night :D) and the buyer must share a kiss at the end of the night. "Oh, right. For the Charity thing", Mouth remembered. Throughout the night Brooke had seen how nice a guy he was, and replied: "No. Just 'cause." I thought that was pretty cool...

At this stage of the series, I'm not a fan of what's happening with the adults. It was good to see Dan becoming even further from his wife, after catching her in an awkward position with the much-younger Tim, which the 'lawyers would love' ;D I don't really like the idea of Karen and Larry (although I enjoy his commentary on "rake boy" :D) having a romance - I enjoyed what Karen and Keith had prior to the accident.

All in all, an AWESOME episode, capped off with Brooke giving Lucas the news she may be pregnant. Great show, great script, great characters - ingredients of a masterpiece series!
