At Kirstens office, Kirsten asks Sandy if he will be around to help set up the Valentines Day dance. Sandy says he cant because he has a huge lawsuit case, and he might have to be a little late to the dance due to restaurant stuff. Kirsten reminds him that they were supposed to go together, but Sandy says he has restaurant zoning ordinances to deal with. Kirsten says she forbids it, and invokes her wifely authority granted to her on this most romantic of holidays. Sandy says it isnt a holiday. Kirsten tells him not this again! Kirsten says he is going because this is important to her. Sandy says she doesnt do some of the things he likes, such as golfing and surfing. She says golfing is for when they are old, and as for surfing, get in the water with the fishes? Sandy says yet he is patient and forgiving when it comes to her, for example he puts up with her father. Kirsten tells him that hell be eligible for sainthood any day now. She tells him that she supported his decision to do the restaurant thing, she supported him going into a private practice, but he never wants to do anything she likes. She says everything is about his life, his job. They continue to yell, and Sandy asks what they are fighting about? Kirsten says she doesnt know, but it is serious, so he is on his own for lunch! Kristen then storms out of her office.

Jimmy comes home and finds Marissa on the couch reading. Jimmy is in a good mood because progress is being made with the restaurant. Marissa tells her dad that he got something; it was left for him at the door. She hands him a red heart shaped box. He says its not ticking, so its not from her mom. The card says she hopes hes not to lonely this Valentines Day, XOXO, your secret admirer. Jimmy thinks Marissa did this, but she says she didnt. Jimmy wonders who would send him this. Marissa says that is a good question, but this year shes trying to avoid Valentines Day all together. Jimmy asks about her and Ryan. She says she doesnt want to talk about it, and neither does he. Jimmy says a romantic gesture can sometimes be more effective than talking. Jimmy looks at the cookies, which are home baked, and wonders who could have done this. Marissa asks if she has kissed anyone recently.

Summer is in her room watching TV. There is a knock at her door, and she says she is busy studying naked, so go away. Seth asks if that is supposed to keep her away. Summer cant believe it is Seth, so she opens the door. She wonders why he is in her house. He asks if he can come in, but she says no. He says thanks and walks in. He picks up her My Little Pony and asks who this is? When Summer says no one, Seth begins talking to the pony until Summer says her name is Princess Sparkle. Seth says she is Captain Oats type. Summer says Captain Oats needs to keep his hooves off Princess Sparkle. Seth tells Summer that hes not choosing her because he and Anna broke up because the whole reason they broke up was that for him, it was always been her. Seth says he tried to fight it, and he tried to deny it, but she is undeniable. Summer grabs Seth and kisses him, and they fall onto the bed. Clothing starts to come off, and Summer asks Seth if has a condom. Seth says yes he does, its in his wallet. Summer takes off her top, and the two make love. 

At Julies place, Luke shows up to see Julie. She asks him what he is doing here? Luke asks if Marissa brought her bio-text book home because he forgot his.

Luke stops her and says tomorrow is the Valentines Day party and he asks if she is going, because hes going and he could give her a ride. Julie says she was planning on staying home and avoiding this holiday. Luke says okay, and goodnight.

Back at Summers, Seth and Summer lay in bed. Seth says So, that was sex. Summer says yep. Seth says hes going to go, and Summer says me too. Seth says she lives here, and she says she meant downstairs. Seth says okay. Summer gets out of bed, pulling the sheet with her exposing Seths nakedness. Seth grabs a pillow to cover himself.

She says theyve waited a long time to . . . and she thought she figured they could do it on Valentines Day. Ryan stops her and says he doesnt want to do this, not with everything that has happened. Marissa says she wishes it hadnt happened and they could be like they were. She says she just wanted to make it up to him. Ryan says she doesnt have to. Marissa says shell just go because this is just really . . . Ryan says wrong. Marissa says she was going to say embarrassing, but wrong works too.

She says she could be anywhere, and remembers one time they thought she was off somewhere and she was really living on her friends boat in the harbor.

Meanwhile, Sandy and Seth have the talk. Sandy asks Seth if he wore protection. Seth says he did, and he cant believe his dad asked him that. Sandy says he is glad Seth did because it shows hes been responsible. Seth says it wasnt that great and didnt last that long, but Sandy says that is to be expected your first time, and he was lucky to hang in there after all the foreplay. Seth doesnt know what that is, so Sandy begins to explain. HE says just because he is ready to go doesnt mean she is. Sandy says the appetizer is as good as the main course.
