Synopsis


Ricky calls Amy because he's stessed about John's first birtday party, but Amy says it's no big deal -- just their families, a cake and food at the park. Ricky's glad the pressure's off, but what he doesn't know is that Amy's heaving a little pre-party, just for John and her. The next morning, Anne wakes her up with bad news: Mimsy may have had a stroke. She and George are going to see her, and they may not be back in time for the party. Amy's bummed, just like Ricky is later when he finds out about that private mini-party.

Ashley's talking with George about the pill. She isn't planning on having sex, but she wants to be on it just in case -- and, as she tells George, even very experienced people make mistakes. George catches on that Adrian might be pregnant. Grace hears the news from Adrian herself. Even worse, she figures out it'd be Ben's baby (if there is a baby), not Ricky's. She makes Adrian promise to take an early pregnancy test. And she gets upset at the though of an abortion.

At school, Madison and Lauren are plotting their first times, even as Jesse's telling Jack he's not sure he wants to have sex with Lauren that weekend. It's too soon, he says. But while they're talking, Grace calls Jack over, because she can't keep quite about Adrian any longer. Of course, Jack accidentally tells Madison.

Over at Mimsy's, George is telling his recovering mother-in-law that he and Anne are getting married, when Mimsy unveils a surprise of her own: HER new husband, Eugene Levy. Yep, Mimsy got hitched.

Amy's pouting because her parents are missing John's first birthday. So Ricky suggests a sleepover party, just the three of them, at his apartment. He'll sleep on the touch so Amy can have the bed. But when Amy shows up at Ricky's with her suitcase, Ben sees them and flips. He's sure they're going to sleep together. Later, he leaves Amy a voicemail, saying he'll always love her.

Speaking of love, the weekend's full of it. Cindy and Ruben get married at City Hall, with Cindy in a bright red dress about 20 sizes too big for her (thanks to Ruben's mom, who doesn't like her). Then, on to Leo and Betty's huge outdoor weeding, where we see most of Grant High's kids, and their parents too.

But no weeding bells ring for Anne and Georger, who agree to wait. Speaking of waiting, Ricky tells Ashley to cool it with Grant. Just because, he says. But the look they're giving each other seems to suggest a lot more. As for the whole Ricky-Amy-Adrian-Ben thing, Amy tries to approach Ben, since she was touched by his message. But before she can say a thing, Adrian interrupts the moment with her news. She and Ben go up to his room, and she takes that pregnancy test.

So... is she or isn't she? Guess we'll have to wait to find out.

Want the whole story, with all the bling of the Sausage King and Queen's weeding? You'll even hear Madison sing!
