I love the background you get about his sister in this one. Also, it has a young Jason Priestly... I loved him in the TV show "Tru Calling" !!!

When Sam sees the bruises and knows how they were caused and then grabs Bob's neck to show him. Sam's intensity because this time he can protect his "sister" when he couldn't help Katie.

Love the interaction with Al, both during the race at the nitro burst and "Hey, Sammy and singing Let It Be Me together at the end.

I just re-watched this epi today and love it for the same reasons as above. It seems like one of episodes where you truly first see Al and Sam's real friendship. I love the Sammy Boy part too. So good

The only thing that bugs me about this episode is the scene at the rehearsal dinner when Sam is going to make his toast and Bob's idiot friends yell, "The Mom mobile's gonna make a speech!" (and then lob pudding at his face a bit later) I did not think that was realistic. Most teenagers would not be that obnoxious right in front of their target's Mom. Had I been Cam's Mom, they would have been outta there (with a big ol' high heel print in their butts)!!!

I would have say it was a great episode if there weren't a few scenes that bother me - first the Sam- Michael Jackson interaction which,in my opinion were unnecessary. secondly - the all scene Al's telling Sam how to win the race against Bob with the mom mobile and then he say's "Of course if you'll press it too long you blow up..." i think they should try to work on it 'cos it seems too artificial.
the last thing is the ending of the episode - Sam kissing the girl which in my opinion wasn't necessary.

I think this is one of my fav episodes. I love the idea of Sam helping Katie in a sense through helping Cheryl. I loved how he was so sweet because he knows what its like to have a sister who is making a wrong choice. And the charactor of Jill was cute. In response to Isz his kissing her was necessary as Cam had a crush on her but was too shy to go near her so Sam had to help that along.

Who said Cam had a crash on Jill but he was too shy to do something about it?!
beside - from what i understood - Jill had a crash on cam too,so... why "Sam Kissing the girl" had to happend? I think if he would Just go there and met her could be enough - the rest was up to Cam.
Not mentioning what they did to Jill in the end with that ugly hair design ,clothes and make-up - It's just wasn't her!

Cam's sister says that Cam really likes Jill, when they're having their heart to heart in her room. It's possible that Cam would not have kissed her. I agree that Jill's hair was awful - but that is how girls wore their hair then. They were really playing up the grease monkey-to-girly girl makeover. I thought she looked nicer with her regular clothes.

The Best Part: When Sam knocked that nozzle fiance of his sisters on his backside. I can't handle watching some sorry a** hitting and beating on a woman. Such a coward! =

The Funniest Part: This was a totally sweet episode. I thought the crush Jill had on Cam/Sam was terrific and the way Sam shyed away because of her age was adorable as was their ending kiss. Oh to be that young and in love again.

The Worst Part: Michael Jackson

This episode: TOTALLY EXCELLENT!

Oh I totally agree with you, it was brilliant. But the best part was when sam's quizzing al about hanging around for the lingerie party, and al's sort of standing there quite sheepish admitting he really didn't have any reasong to be there. Loved it!!! I just love Al (I know I have said it before)

I have to agree with you there. It makes me cringe.

But other than that, this is a delightful, charming episode. I thought Scott did an especially fine job.

I don't think Al really looked all that sheepish...

Cheryl did actually during the bro/sis heart to heart in her room.

Cheryl: I know who's got a crush on you
Sam: Who?
Cheryl: Jill!
Sam: Jill?....*remembers the girl with the purse that Bob's friends were playing monkey in the middle with* Jill!
Cheryl: Come on Cam, one minute you're getting up the guts to ask her out and now you don't even know her?

(NOTE: Some of the lines may not be exact, I can't remember exactly how it went)

Even though...i think It's no reason for a scene of "Sam kissing the girl",in this episode.I'm sure Cam would do just fine,if Sam leapt the minute he saw Jill "new look".

How do you know Cam would do just fine? Since Sam didn't leap out until after the kiss had been initiated one can then infer that GFTW felt that it was necessary for him to do so.

Who knows...maybe through Sam's institution of the kiss, Jill and Cam became highschool sweethearts who married and had a child who went on to do something important. It could be that if Sam hadn't initiated the kiss, Cam might not have had the courage to do so and those events might not have happened. Of course, that's purely speculation but since Sam didn't leap out until after initiating the kiss, I think it's safe to assume that GFTW felt that it was necessary.

You mean Paul Brown thought so...

BTW,did i wrote "would"?! I'm sorry - i ment "could".

The bottom line - No matter what, i think the all "Sam kissing the Girl" in this episode never should have happend,and was an unnecessery scene in this episode(Something Paul Brown,just enjoyed doing in most of the episode he wrote for the show). But, that only me(so it seems).

I agree her with Julia. as I stated in my last post Cheryl stated that Cam was struggling to get the guts to ask her out let alone kiss her. He seems like the very shy-away type, so without Sam's help he may have never asked her out and thus if there was a future for them with marriage and children as Julia suggested all that would have been terminated. So leaping back in in middle of sharing a kiss with her due to Sam's giving him a boost by starting it; is probably the drive he needed to ask her out and ensure a possible important future for them.

In addition, I personally thought it was cute. I love Sam showing his sweet side

Well...I do. After all without the writers there would be no show...
Anyway - You want to believe,that without Sam's help,Cam would have never take the first step(or any step) with Jill.I believe he would.
So all we left to do is - To agree to disagree.
