Sam decides to continue her day without mentioning it to anyone. She attends a dance at school that night where a nerdy freshman tries to kiss her. She then agrees to let him borrow her underwear so he can impress all of the other freshman. Samantha has a crush on Jake a handsome, popular senior; who happens to be dating the most popular girl in school. Jake has a party after the dance and the whole school goes including Samantha's asian houseguest Long-Duck Dong. Sam decides to go home and call it a night.
