Trivia

Donny keeps calling Luke (Chris Carmack) "Abercrombie & Fitch". This is an inside joke because Carmack's biggest credit before 'The O.C.' was being an Abercrombie & Fitch model. See more »

Goofs

In the scene after Ryan and Marissa jump in the pool, they both go to the pool house to dry off. Ryan is drying off Marissa and some of her hair can be seen hanging in front of her face. In the next shot it is brushed back behind her ear, then in her face again and back to being brushed behind her ear, continuing on between the two shots. See more »

Quotes

Seth Cohen: You know what I was thinking? I think that this being your last night and all, we should do something special. I don't know what. Possibly get a couple of tattoos or some hookers and lose our virginity. Right? Okay, dude, I don't know. There's a shark movie at the IMAX. If that's what you're into.
Ryan Atwood: [smiles] I just want to take it easy.
