As the gang all continue to deal with Marissa's death, they all begin to adjust to life after high school. At Brown, Summer has re-invented herself into an environmental activist with help of her new friend, Che. Ryan has moved out of the Cohen household and continues to cope Marissa's death, which he took the hardest of all. But when Ryan misses a dinner at the Cohens, Seth finds Ryan slipping back to his old ways and calls Summer for help. Meanwhile, Julie finds it hard to deal with her daughter's death; Kaitlin uses the Cooper charm to get a new pair of boots; and Taylor tries to avoid everyone in order to hide the fact that she's not in Paris.

Episode Quotes
(to a little girl at the comic book store)
Seth: Did you just seriously ask me if there was a comic based on the X-Men movie?

Summer: Chicken lovers unite!
(student passing by takes a flier)
Student: I absolutely love chicken nuggets.
Summer: It's people like you who stop chickens from flying free!
Student: Chickens can't fly.

Seth: (to Ryan) Aren't you going to invite me in? So, the utility closet is the new poolhouse, things change. It's the Seth-Ryan time that counts.

Julie: Hey, Kaitlin. Why aren't you at school?
Kaitlin: Because it's 8:00 at night, and a Saturday.
Julie: Oh, that's nice. Well, I guess I'm gonna get going.
Kaitlin: Where are you going? You know you're not supposed to be driving at night anymore.
Julie: Great boots, baby.

Julie: I have no feeling in my extremeties.
Dr. Roberts: Well, I'm sure you have a pill for that.

Summer: Ryan, come on, take a deep breath and let me do what I do best.
Ryan: Which is what?
Summer: Giving orders.

Seth: Table set for four. Still feels kind of weird.
Sandy: Well things have been a little weird around here lately. Tonight might not be any different. We shouldn't be expecting any miracles.
Seth: No zippy one-liners.
Kirsten: Not a lot of smiles.
Sandy: Few grunts. Occasional shrug.
Seth: Yeah, it'll be just like old times.
Sandy: And I'm looking forward to it.

(standing at Marissa's grave)
Julie: I was wondering when you'd finally come here.
Ryan: Thanks for meeting me.
Julie: I'm here everyday.



Episode Goofs
When the little girl is running out of the comic book store, Leon and Philip stand up and fold their arms across their chests. However, when the shot goes back to them, their hands are on their hips instead.



Cultural References
Episode Title: The Avengers

The episode title comes from the 1961 TV show The Avengers and the 1998 movie of the same name.

Seth: I liked your little performance, it was very Fight Club. Of course, at the end of that movie it turns out Edward Norton is insane.

Seth is referring to the 1999 film Fight Club about underground fight clubs starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton.

Summer: Give a hoot, don't pollute

Summer's line is a reference to a 1970s public service announcement from Woodsy Owl telling kids not to pollute.
