Norman Buckley returns with Rachel Bilson and Melinda Clarke to discuss his directorial debut on The O.C, season 2, episode 18, “The Risky Business”.

Norman gives listeners a behind-the-scenes look at how he directed the episode. Hear about all the Risky Business throwbacks in the episode and how they shot the iconic “egg” throwing scene.  And the trio also discusses their favorite character arcs for season two and just how many bedrooms does the Cohen house have?

The Risky Business Synopsis: Sandy reluctantly agrees to serve as a host at an OC hybrid yard sale to help out Kirsten. Marissa moves in with the Cohens for a week while Julie and Caleb are traveling which makes for some awkward encounters for her and Ryan.  Trey, with the help of Marissa, wants to move into Alex’s old apartment but can’t come up with the money.  To prove that he is self-dependent, Trey decides to steal a very risky exhibit, when Ryan finds out he and Seth go on a mission to recover it before anyone finds out. Carter renews Seth and Zach's comic book dream, much to the annoyance of Summer.
