Lindsay's parents are convinced Kim is leading their daughter down a path toward drugs and sex, so they consider taking a peek in her diary. Meanwhile, Bill is tired of the same jocks picking the teams during P.E., often leaving him picked last, so he makes prank calls to Coach Fredricks then confronts him directly. The adults may be the ones learning lessons from the students.Written by
When the guys are being picked for baseball teams, two girls are laughing at the last three guys to get picked. One the girls is holding a hurley, a stick used in the Irish game hurling, and not to be found on a US baseball field in the 1970s. See more »

This! The thumb! You think I don't know what that means? I know, Lindsay! It means, "Hey, stranger! Please lock me in your car, drive me to God knows where and murder me!"

Desperate to uncover what's going on in their daughter's life, the Weirs resort to pilfering Lindsay's diary. And it's mostly the acting here that makes this dramatic. But it's also one of those episodes in which the minor storyline is its best. As much as I love this show, I feel like it's around this point that things really deepen.
Bill's struggles with being accepted in phys ed are surprisingly relatable, and his breakdown in Coach Fredricks' office is easily the highlight. It reveals layers to Fredricks' character (gotta hand it to Tom Wilson )and really shows Bill as the heart of this show. His misery is a great source of humor and pathos, and it's why any given episode always brightens when he's around.
This is a great showcase for talent all around.
