The show opens with Seth, Ryan and Zack walking on the pier. Seth wants to go over to Alexs apartment and wants to
ask if they are in a relationship or not. Zack tells him to do it, but Ryan says no. Seth says he needs to know if Alex is over her lesbian ex, or if not if they are open to a mnage-a-trios like in the film Summer Lovers.
(This is a nod to Peter Gallegher) Ryan says that probably wont happy. They all head to the
diner, and Ryan is now talking about Lindsay. Ryan said he never had a doubt in his mind about Lindsay, okay maybe one or two. Zack asks what he did? Seth says Ryan went to her doorstep and wouldnt go anywhere till she gave him a shot. Zack thinks that is what Seth should do with Alex. However, instead of asking her what she wants, tell her what you want. Seth asks if that is how it works with him and Summer? Zack says or he could focus on the good things he has in his life. Summer soon joins them and says she is so hungry because the step-monster keeps raiding her breakfast. Lindsay shows up to have breakfast with Ryan, and Seth decides to head out and get what he
wants as he feels like a third wheel.
