"Just Say No" is the eleventh episode of Season 1 of The Secret Life of the American Teenager. It aired on September 9, 2008.


Grant High's buzzing with new rumors and gossip—as usual. Not only has Adrian disappeared, supposedly with Marc Molina, but Madison and Lauren are telling everybody that Ricky 's in therapy. And it turns out Grace was in therapy too. Finally, Amy finds out about Lauren and Ricky, and she isn't too pleased.

But Lauren might as well be old news to Ricky, because he's set his sights on somebody else: Grace. And with Adrian gone, he and Grace confess their true feelings for each other, but decide to take things slowly. Then a harmless cookie-baking session between the two heats up quickly ... until Grace's mom comes into the room. And she isn't very happy, because she just found out that Grace told Tom all about her cheating past. And, unfortunately, Marshall found out too.

Meanwhile, Adrian's dad, Ruben , tracks down Adrian with a little help from the cops. He convinces her to live with him and his family for a trial period, and to enroll at an all-girls school.

Ben and Amy, on the other hand, are talking about having sex for the first time. But will they do it?

Over at the Juergens household, Anne's looking sexier than ever ... but she isn't doing it for George . Does she mean it when she tells George she doesn't want to be married to him anymore? If so, is the family headed for a split?

And of course, gymnast Shawn Johnson just happens to come back to Grant High, fresh from winning gold at the Beijing Olympics. (Can you say "celebrity guest star"?) When she runs into Ricky in the hallway, he doesn't even know she's been away—but that doesn't stop him from hitting on her. She's kind of into it.
