"I knew how to put a condom on a cucumber before I knew how to drive!" ~Michael

This episode was filled with some interesting moments and exchanges between characters, like Ted and Emmett's first real big "fight", and it was especially paradoxical to see the way Debbie acted when she found out that Michael was dating someone who was HIV-positive. She was always so supportive of every little thing that Michael did and said that it came as a real shocker when she seemed so upset. Brian and Lindsay have quite a few good scenes together, and the party scene where Justin and everyone are going crazy because of the spiked punch when all of a sudden Lindsay's parents come in was hysterically funny. I loved seeing Lindsay finally stick up to her parents after all that she's been through. As always, the exchanges between Justin and Brian were pure gold, and Michael and Ben just seem perfect together. Not the best episode in the world, but I did like it a lot.
