down on the card. Ryan and his mom arrive home and his mother is drinking
and there is a man sitting on chair drinking and watching TV. Ryan's mom
explains that she does not know what to do and that she wants Ryan out of the
house. Ryan then asks, almost crying, where will he go and stay. The man sitting
yells that he heard his mother. Ryan yells back and the two begin to fight. Ryan
is hit and he gets up and leaves on his bike. Ryan rides around town finally
stopping at a pay phone and begins to call people and ask for help. He can't
seem to get anyone that will help him. He then takes out Sandy's card and calls
Sandy and Ryan are in the car driving to Sandy's house when Ryan mentions that
he didn't think that the type of lawyer Sandy was made money. Sandy say that he
doesn't but that his wife does as they pull up to the driveway of this beautiful
big house. Sandy tells Ryan to wait in the car as he goes in to talk to his
wife. He is about to leave when he realizes that he left his keys in the car and
then reaches for the keys. Ryan looks at him and says it is no fun when the keys
are inside. Inside the house Sandy and Kirsten are arguing about Ryan. Sandy
wants to give him a chance and Kirsten is worried about Ryan's intensions. Sandy
mentions that it will only be for the weakened and on Monday he will take him to
child services. Kirsten then goes to get Ryan's stuff ready for the pool house.
Meanwhile, outside, Ryan leaves the car and goes to the front of the driveway to
smoke. At the same time Marissa is coming out of her house. She sees Ryan and
asks who he is. He tells her that he stole car, crashed it, his mom kicked him
out, and that Mr. Cowan is taking him in. She laughs and says yeah right
and says you must be their nephew from Seattle. Ryan just agrees with her. She
then wants a cigarette and Ryan lights it for her. Sandy then comes out and
finds Ryan talking to Marissa. Marissa mentions that he was just talking to his
nephew and asks if he is going to her fashion show charity event. Sandy smiles
and says that he wouldn't miss it for the world. A black truck pulls up to the
curb and Marissa goes to it. She then invites Ryan to the show as she gets in
The next day Ryan wakes up and looks out the beautiful view of the ocean. He
then goes inside the house where he finds Seth. Seth says hello and asks if he
want to play Grand theft auto where they can steal cars which is "cool or
not that cool." The two immediately bond and begin playing video games.
Sandy walks in and tells them that they should go out so Seth can show him
around. He tells them also not to forget about the charity fashion show tonight.
Seth says he is not going and Sandy says that Ryan has to go because Marissa
invited him. Seth is surprised that Ryan already met Marissa and says that they
have been next door neighbors forever and that her dad almost married his mom
and that he has never talked to Marissa. Sandy interrupts Seth and says that
Kirsten did not almost marry Jimmy.
Both of them go sailing and Seth tells Ryan that he want to sail to Tahiti with
the girl that Seth likes, the one he named his boat after, Summer. Seth also
mentions that he as never talked to her and she does not know that he exists.
At Marissa's house there is a knock at the door. Marissa get the door and two
men are standing outside. They ask to speak to her father. She informs then that
he is not home and that she does not know when he will be back. One of the men
hands her a business card to give to her father. She closes the door and takes a
look at the car and reads that it is someone from the Federal Trade Commission.
She goes into her dads (Jimmy's) office and her dad is there he tanks her for
taking care of the people at the door. He says that he just did not want to deal
with them. Marissa asks her dad if everything is ok and he replies that every
thing is good. Everyone gets ready for the fashion show at Marissa's house. Her
mom, Julie, and sister are downstairs waiting for Marissa. When Julie sees
Marissa all she does is criticizes her about her hair.
At the charity fashion show all the people stare at Ryan and wonder who he is.
The fashion show is an extravagant event with alcohol everywhere for everyone.
As Marissa comes on to the runway Ryan can not help but to be fixated on her.
She too stares at him from the runway. Luke, Marissa's boyfriend, sees the eye
contact between Ryan and Marissa and gets an angry look on his face. During the
show the Cohen's, the Coopers, and another couple start talking about the
expensive dresses that the girls are wearing. Sandy mentions that Marissa's
dress must have cost more then he makes in a year. The people at the table
mention that it just means that Jimmy is very financially secure and will make
everyone rich. Jimmy excuses himself and goes to the bathroom. Ryan heads to the
bathroom and while he is there Jimmy comes in and goes into a stall and starts
banging the walls. Ryan looks towards the stall ad he hears Jimmy inside crying.
Marissa and Summer are seen in the changing room bathroom where Summer tells
Marissa that she got a glass of Champaign. Marissa pulls out a bottle of alcohol
and says look what I got.
Ryan is invited to a beach party by Summer. He convinces Seth to go along to the
party with a group of kids in a jeep. They arrive at the party and there are a
lot of half naked girls and guys dancing and making out. Ryan sees Marissa and
she says that she is glad he came. She asks Ryan what he thinks about the place
and he says that he thinks he could probably get in a lot less trouble from he's
from. Seth tries to talk to Summer and she just ignores him and doesn't know who
he is. Seth then begins to drink. Seth goes into a bathroom where he finds a guy
with two girls in the hot tub. He says sorry and that next time he should knock
just in case there is a threesome going on. Marissa goes on and starts drinking
her bottle from the fashion show. Luke is seen taking another girl to look
at the water. She asks about Marissa and Luke does not give it a second thought.
Summer is trying to come on to Ryan and he pushes her a way. Seth sees Summer
getting close to Ryan and because he has been drinking to much he gets upset and
tell Ryan to go back to Chino where he came from. Summer says "ewl, Chino,
gross" Seth then goes out the beach where he runs into Luke who starts
shoving him around and making fun of him. Ryan chases after Seth to help him out
and the two start fighting the "Surfing" guys.
Back at the Cohen house Kirsten is walking outside and meets up with Jimmy
walking his dog. She asks if Marissa is home yet and he says no that she usually
stays out late. Kirsten says that Seth never goes out and she is worried. Jimmy
says not to worry that the kids are probably doing the same thing that they did
when they were that age. Kirsten says that is what she is worried about.
Seth and Ryan get home and sleep in the guest house. Ryan gets up in the middle
of the night and goes outside. He sees Marissa arriving with her friends. They
have to carry her to her door and leave her lying on the floor when they cannot
find her keys. Ryan sees this and wait till they leave to go to Marissa. She is
totally wasted so he finds her keys and carries her inside to bed.
Kirsten finds Seth in the morning with bruises on his face and gets upset. She

their house. Ryan is seen cooking breakfast when Kirsten walks into the kitchen.
She is surprised that Ryan can and is cooking. She starts talking to Ryan. Ryan
says he understands and he will get his stuff ready. Ryan goes into Seth's room
to say goodbye. Sandy drives Ryan home to Chino. When Ryan gets to the house he
says he will be ok and thanks Sandy for his help. Ryan enters the house and
finds that his mother moved out. Sandy comes in after him and leads him out of
