Did You Know?


Summer: [standing on a coffee cart] Look, I love you this much, and I wanna be with you now, and next year, and whatever comes after that. So I'm asking, in the presence of this coffee cart and the sacred moment that it represents, if you can honestly tell me that you don't love me anymore.

The Dawn Patrol (#3.21)
24 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Ryan goes to invite his mother for graduation. She is very excited but then he gets second thoughts because of the boyfriend she has and he thinks she will embarrass him. But her colleague tells and shows him things that make him re-invite her. Sandy helps Matt to get out of trouble. Marissa comes back to Julie after Volchek's friends almost rape Heather. And Seth tells Summer he doesn't love her.

Well once again Ryan is taught a lesson for being prejudiced. Happens to him all the time, but the good thing about Ryan is that he is not afraid to apologize. This is actually the sign of a bigger person. I am happy for him mom.
