It's just a regular picnic in the park for Ben and Amy ... until Ben asks to marry her, that is. Naturally, Amy's touched and starts to cry, confessing everything from her one night stand with Ricky to her bun in the oven. But Ben already knows, anyway. Now the pressure's on to marry Ben ... or get an abortion. Or maybe have the baby and then give it up for adoption.

And, while Ricky's still hard at work trying to charm the Bowmans, somebody over at the Juergens household has lost all his charm. That's right: George Juergens is about to "go away" for a while ... right into the arms of Cindy, Adrian's mom. Bad timing much?

Back at school, people are starting to talk about Amy's potential...ahem....problem thanks to her two her two chatty best friends. Plus, Grace not only finds out taht Jack and Adrian may have done more than just kiss, but also that Ricky may be the father of Amy's baby. As if that weren't bad enough, a heated confrontation with Jack reveals that he only started dating her because his stepdad (that's Reverend Stone) asked him to. Turns out the Bowmans are big contributors to the church coffers.

Adrian, meanwhile, is desperately trying to have a talk with Amy. We don't get to find out about what, though, because Amy skips school and heads home. And Ben's still desperately pleading to marry her. But the question is: Will she do it? She's only 15, after all ....
