"See You In September" is the second episode of the 2nd season of 7th Heaven. On its original airing, this episode scored 4.15 million viewers.


Eric and Annie selfishly expect the kids to start the school year on routine so they can enjoy a lazy day alone incommunicado. They learn the hard way that “ill-prepared” means “in trouble”. Meanwhile, Nazi-style principal Russel has a lot of collaborating staff to enforce draconian discipline for 'gang and drug offenses' according to absurd new rules none saw coming, such as Simon's cutlery getting him suspended for 'concealed weapons. Elsewhere, Mary is happy with an ex-Olympic new basketball coach Koper, who, meanwhile, terrorizes Matt on account of the beeper Eric forgot when he borrowed the good boy's jacket again. To continue, Simon's buddy system only helps against a potential bully. Also, Lucy makes her own life paranoid hell, while Mary rudely fails to work with new kid Mark 'Marcus', a natural flirt. While this is going on, the whole school buzzes about Lucy's classmate Peter McKinley's apparent suicide attempt. Finally, Eric, called in by the police, discovers it's a desperate cry for help after 13 years of deaf tyranny from his insensitive, clueless single mother.


  • Taran Noah Smith (Home Improvement) guest-stars in this episode as Peter McKinley. Interestingly, for both of these roles, Smith portrayed a misfit who had social problems at school, although those issues were more intense with the character of Peter.
  • Debra Jo Rupp (June McKinley) and Mila Kunis (Ashley) who both guest-star in this episode of 7th Heaven, will later work full-time together on the Fox sitcom, That '70s Show.
  • Bobby Brewer was nominated for a Young Artist Award for his performance as Buck in this episode.[1]
