Did You Know?


Summer: The break-up is off. That's right, I broke up with you, and technically it's within my power to technically un-break us up.
Seth Cohen: You can do that?
Summer: Technically, I just did. So unless you can explain to my satisfaction what your deal is and why you suddenly don't want to be together next year, we're back on. Technically, efficiently, completely.

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.
