Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Callie Leeson
Kim Bourne ...
Amber Morgan-Leeson


As the doctor finds Brian in satisfactory condition, he gives him advice 'being past 21' to take it easy. Emmet is feeling down when huge Brown underwear pictures of his latest dream-guy are posted everywhere. He's delighted when 'Drewsie' unexpectedly returns to him. However, kissing in the VIPs jeep 'to escape fan hordes' while Drew's wife, Sierra, is none the wiser, doesn't agree with Emmet's hard-conquered up-front lifestyle and demands that Drew makes a choice. Bi-sexual Hunter presently has the hots for Callie, tells her he is HIV-positive but still has protected sex; her parents read her secret diary and march over to scold him, Mikey and Ben.

Episode #4.12
11 May 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I really think my favourite part of this episode is again the story of Hunter and his girlfriend. So sad to see how it went for him! And the scene at the end when he cries because he thinks that nobody will ever love him because of his status while Ben and Michael tell him that they will love him no matter what is very heart breaking.

I am glad the story with Doug Boyd is over. I did like it at the end but was not too impressed with what was done with it. It did provide us a very funny moment at this episode though: when Debbie is scared of Doug's car and wonders if Vic was involved with mafia in some way. Hilarious!
