15. 'Girlfriends and Boyfriends'
Air Date: January 17, 2000
As Nick and Lindsay's fairly one-sided romance heats up, the couple makes plans to spend an evening together. While she's already edgy, worrying about what sort of sexual escapades Nick might be envisioning for the evening, what he's got in store for her is much, much worse. Like a victim being lured into a serial killer's lair, Nick leads Lindsay down into his basement, where he's dimmed the lights and lit about 75 candles in order to set the mood for the world's worst serenade of Styx's already-intolerable "Lady." It's the stuff of which high school romance nightmares — and comedy gold — are made of. Meanwhile, Sam is furious that Bill and Cindy Sanders have become lab partners, necessitating that they spend time outside of school together. As for Bill, he can't wait to tell his friends that Cindy farted.
Best Line: "I heard it, man, I swear. She blamed it on the chair. But she cut the cheese."
