In “Tests and Breasts”, another entry currently rated over 8.5 on IMDb, the geeks endure sex Ed with Mr. Fredricks who, due to Sam’s ignorance of the female reproductive system, ends up humiliating the child. While everyone at school starts referring to Sam as the cruel joke Dr. Calling Love, Lindsay tries to help Daniel with an upcoming math class. However, to her awe-inspiring frustration, he is not interested in studying. He’d much rather she gave him the answers to the test he stole. At first, Lindsay refuses, but when Mr. Kowchevski (Steve Bannos) insults Daniel while she’s trying to put in a good word for her friend, she changes her mind. Subsequently, both Youngsters are accused of fraud. During all of this, Daniel also finds time to talk to Sam with his Dr. Love problem, but for Daniel that just means renting the kid a dirty movie.
Critically Touched’s Jeremy Grayson claims that this Freaks and Geeks entry is “a perfect vehicle for Daniel… Hell, in a way it’s an episodic clone of Daniel… – both of them are funny, confident and unpredictable.” Both are also great fun to watch, which makes this a very likable episode.” Ultimately, this story addresses how manipulative Daniel can be, but it also shows why he chooses to be that way. His monologue on The end of the lesson, which he recites twice, is moving the first time, the second time we see learned insincerity.
