Lindsay volunteers to help Daniel pass a do-or-die algebra test; after he flakes out on the studying, he figures out how to get her to help him cheat. Sam, meanwhile, is clueless in his sex ed class, so Daniel loans him a porn video that further confuses and dismays the geeks.Written by

'Tests and Breasts' is stacked with character moments, whether it's Daniel cheating his way through a math test or the geeks watching a porno for sex ed. We've all been through that roller-coaster portion of health class, and Sam's increasing discomfort . . . well, who among us couldn't relate to that? It gives Tom Wilson room to shine as Coach Fredricks, a role that goes from jerk to thoughtful teacher in the space of an episode.
It's also a showcase for James Franco, bringing charm and confidence to a loser like Daniel. The rising tension in the counselor's office at episode's end yields one of the show's best moments. Backed against a wall, sometimes all you can do is just break into laughter.
