Scott Michael Foster,
Happy-go-lucky party animal Chris wakes up one morning with a hangover and an erection. Nothing unusual there. Until he discovers a grand in cash and a note from his mum saying she's gone away. So, like any not-so-average pill-popping 17 year old, Chris embarks on a bender to end all benders. But what do you do after you've thrown the mother of all parties and blown all the money? Well, you sell everything that isn't nailed down and go again - and just hope that everything else will start to make sense. Sometimes though, life can make a little more sense than you want it to and Chris has to face up to the fact his mum might never be coming home. Written by

Hey, do you... do you wanna hear about the best day of my life? I'd pissed myself by accident.

Marginally better than Jal's tale of the previous episode, this outing show's life through Chris's eyes as waking up one day to his mom already having left seemingly for good and leaving him a grand in cash, which he promptly blows through by having a rager that very night. Feeling alone (more so than he ever did) he confides in Jal and the teacher that he lusts after. But will he ever get over his addiction? Only time will tell.
I liked this episode much more then the previous one as it wasn't nearly as bland (don't get me wrong, it was still short of achieving the greatness of the first two episodes of the series). It was equal parts funny (the Viagra incident, the squatter, etcetera) and a tad depressing. Chris seems like a good bloke who's just made rather horrid choices in life.
My Grade: B-
