QUIZ: How well do you remember the very first episode of The O.C.?

Keeley Ryan

Calllliforniiiiia, here we coooooome. 

It’s been many years since The O.C. first premiered and we were first introduced to Ryan Atwood, Seth Cohen, Marissa Cooper and Summer Roberts.

We know, we still can’t believe it. It premiered on August 5, 2003, and it’s still one of our favourite dramas – even though it had a fairly short run.

The series ran for just four seasons, which saw some of our favourite (and less favourite) O.C. residents go through…well, just about everything imaginable.

Including the time that it was revealed Julie Cooper was having an affair with her daughter’s ex-boyfriend, Luke. And let’s not forget the very first Chrismukkah – or that Spiderman-esque kiss between Seth and Summer.

And while the series was well known for the dramatic cliffhangers, it also has one of our favourite pilots ever (as well as a killer soundtrack).

But how well do you remember what actually went on in our first introduction to The O.C.? Reckon you can remember the name of Seth’s boat? Or what Ryan said to Marissa when they first met?

Or what about who said the first words of the entire series? And who spoke last in the premiere?

It’s time to put your knowledge of The O.C. to the ultimate test.
