Two things: How many times is that tumbleweed going to cross the road in the bus stop scene? And, how does the creep drive the van if the windshield and side windows are blacked out (which would get him pulled over by the cops in an instant)?

I enjoyed this episode. Al's interactions with Teresa were very touching (even if he broke his promise to her in canon). Sam's virginity speech at the breakfast table was spot on. (I would steal that if I had kids.) The creeps in the van gave me the total creeps, but Al's protective threat to kill the creep, and especially the way he said it, made the hairs stand up on the back of my neck. I love how this is the first time we see Sam's martial arts prowess, and it's certainly not the last.

I didn't understand what the point was to the Magnum scene.

This episode gets an Excellent.

Oh, and I saw where a couple people mentioned above that the actor who played Kevin looked older than fifteen. They probably cast an 18tly* actor because he had to take off his shirt in that one scene.

* Eighteen years or older who can pass as younger than 18
