PARENTING 101 - When new mom Lucy (Beverley Mitchell) welcomes guests over to see the baby, Annie (Catherine Hicks) immediately becomes concerned, believing that Lucy doesn't fully understand the health risks of exposing a newborn to strangers. Lucy's determination to show everyone that she has parenting under control leaves Kevin (George Stults) to question his role as a father. Meanwhile, Martin's (Tyler Hoechlin) classmate Zoe (guest star Katie Cassidy) intentionally falls asleep on the couch of his apartment so that she can tell everyone at school that they slept together. When Ruthie (Mackenzie Rosman) finds out about Martin's overnight guest, she sees it as the perfect opportunity to blackmail him into getting her a date with her crush, Vincent (guest star Thomas Dekker). Stephen Collins and Nikolas & Lorenzo Brino also star. Harry Harris directed the episode from a story by Brenda Hampton and teleplay by Justin Trofholz (#190).
