This episode deals with body dismorphic disorder, that is what is wrong with Little Lily. I must say, those thoughts going through the boy's head, they're just normal, average guy issues, but okay...

Miserably commented to myself during the cancer & leukemia patient sequences, "haven't had this much fun since watching HAWKS decades and decades ago at a drive-in."

Lots of the regular cast doesn't appear, so with no Bio Glass and Mary Cherry to aggravate me, I will not go in such seething tirades about lost opportunities, though the hand of Ryan Murphy in the story-line can clearly be seen. The whole Equus thing with Josh thinking he has to bare all on stage... And all those Novac scenes, this is a TV show taking place in the ladies'...? Toilets, toilets, toilets. Toilets every week.

There is a line by Little Lily in which she asks Josh if he wouldn't want to swop his pigskin for some horse flesh. It struck me that Lily, who is a conscientious objector to the use of any animal product, wouldn't speak so blithely about subjects dear to her heart, not even in this figurative sense.

Nicole Julian has got to be the poster child for Reptilian Stay-Away- From-Me. By contrast, even with a wan, neglected look, Brooke is beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.

Aw, but get this damned Death Valley mess over with, please. Please. I did not sign up for sick bay, I signed up for high school frolics.
