The moment I knew THE OC was going to be something special was this opening scene (see video above). Marissa and Ryan meeting for the first time and (gasp!) smoking. On television you’ll notice (or at least you will from now on) that kids can drink excessively, sleep with whomever they want, do drugs until they OD — but the one thing you’ll never see them do is smoke. This scene set the tone for a different kind of show and an incredible first season of THE OC.
