In order to get in contact with Johnny's father, Sadie and Ryan go on a road trip together to find him. Despite Ryan regressing back to his old ways, the road trip brings Sadie and Ryan even closer, putting Ryan and Marissa's relationship at risk. Meanwhile, new evidence implicates Marissa in Johnny's death and Seth and Summer find out the truth about what's going on between Julie and Neil.
Summer: You see, all the TV shows I watch, all these women have voiceovers. They even gave one to April on The Valley. Now where most of these voiceovers don’t make much sense, they do make your life seem more dramatic and meaningful.
Seth: I got two girls in bikinis trying to seduce me, which sounds awesome. But I’m scared, I’m wet and I’m cold, Ryan.
Seth: So what? I kinda like her, you know? I don’t care that she married my grandpa for money or had sex with Luke. I think she’s got moxie.
Taylor: Your dad and Julie Cooper are doing it. Yeah, it’s a shock to me, too. I wouldn’t have believed it myself if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes. It was all very mid-‘90s, overwrought thriller, sort of a Verhoeven shade.
Seth: Dude, where are you?
Ryan: Indio. How much trouble am I in?
Seth: Ah, none yet. Mom and Dad think you're helping inner city kids paint an overpass mural. I'm rolling around in your bed right now. So it looks slept in.
Ryan: You probably do that anyway.
Taylor: Just what are we going to tell Summer?
Summer: What's who going to tell Summer?
Seth: Do I need to call a locksmith?
Summer: What are you doing here, T-Bag?
