    The Proposal with Alan Dale

    The Proposal with Alan Dale

    Rachel and Melinda discuss “The Proposal,” (S1 Ep24). They’re joined by Alan Dale, who you may know from Entourage, Lost, and Dynasty, but most likely, The OC, where he played Caleb Nichol. 

    Hear how this New Zealand kiwi made his way to the US to expand his acting career where he’s played several roles, many of them ending in a heart attack! Alan shares his favorite acting role, tells a story of a hair mishap the day they shot the famous booty call scene, and comments on why Caleb proposes to Julie.

    In The Proposal, which some refer to as “the episode that destroyed everything,” the hosts discuss how the gruesome twosome’s union will change the lives of all characters on the show. Find out which storyline Rachel loved and the scene she couldn’t stop laughing while shooting, plus, way more memories from this episode.

    The Proposal Synopsis: The Balboa Lighthouse is almost open but a major roadblock, the loss of their liquor license, stands to ruin it all. Luke is leaving Newport but first wants forgiveness from Marissa. When neither she nor Julie will talk to him, he drinks too much and nearly dies. Caleb proposes to Julie and to make her happy, strikes a deal with Marissa. Seth and Summer undergo a massive home repair project to make Marissa feel more at home at Jimmy’s.

    The Telenovela with Wilson Bethel

    The Telenovela with Wilson Bethel

    Ay, dios mio -- it’s the Telenovela! Rachel and Melinda discuss “The Telenovela,” (S1 Ep20) with Wilson Bethel, whose very first acting role was playing Brad the Water Polo Player on this episode! 

    Wilson shares why he got humiliated on the set of The OC, the line in this episode he called “his most shameful,” and the time he passed a cocktail weenie to Josh Schwartz.

    Rachel and Wilson went on to co-star in “Hart of Dixie,” so there’s some crossover this episode as they discuss similarities between the two shows, Rachel’s role as Dr. Zoe Hart, and the ultimate prank she played on Wilson on the set of that show.

    The Telenovela Synopsis: Can’t we be friends? Ryan and Marissa give it a try but it’s certainly awkward. Things take another turn when Ryan's former flame, Theresa Diaz, shows up in Newport to work as a waitress for a special gathering and wants to try to reconcile with him. Meanwhile, Julie and Luke begin having a passionate affair behind everyone's backs, while Seth has to fight for Summer to publicly recognize their relationship.
