6. 'Smooching and Mooching'

Air Date: July 8, 2000
After years of lusting after Cindy Sanders, the most beautiful girl in school tells Bill that she likes Sam — like likes him, a fact that both thrills and scares the hell out of Sam. He manages to muster up the courage to ask her to a party; unbeknownst to him, it's a make-out party, which is exactly what Cindy has in mind. After sweetly asking if he can kiss her, the normally demure Cindy takes charge of the situation, and the look of terror on Sam's face as she turns out the lights is brilliant. In the other room, a game of spin the bottle ends with Bill and head cheerleader Vicki spending seven minutes in heaven. Teen romance is even more complicated back at the Weir household, where Nick has been staying since running away from home, bonding in ways with Harold and Jean that both frighten and bother Lindsay.
Best Line: "Everyone looks cool in turtlenecks. That's the point. We can't both wear them. We'll look like the Smothers Brothers."
