    17. When Kim gave the most honest book report ever.

    18. When Lindsay tried to have a logical conversation with a stoner.

    19. And then when Lindsay got high for the first time and became a philosopher.

    20. When Lindsay got in trouble for the first time and completely lost the ability to have even the slightest bit of chill.
