"We The People" is the eighteenth episode of the 3rd season of 7th Heaven. On its original airing, this episode scored 9.93 million viewers.


Moral outrage explodes in the community over an affair between a college president and a student at Matt's college. Simon and Ruthie go on a paper route, but some problems occur when Mr. Mallone does not want to pay the paper fee. Mrs. Hinkle tries to help Simon and Ruthie in their situation. Matt gets into a fight with some people at his school due to a disagreement of opinions about the chancellor's affair. Mary convinces Lucy to go on a date with the guy Mary supposedly smashed her car in too.


  • This is the last appearance of recurring star Peg Phillips (Mrs. Hinkle). She passed away on November 7, 2002, after a battle with lung cancer.


  • Interestingly enough, Catherine LePard (writer for this episode) created her own series for cable channel Lifetime called "For The People" which is a similar title to this episode that she'd written.

Goofs & Errors[]

  • Simon could've just simply stopped delivering Mr. Mallones newspaper until he pays his bill. It makes more sense than just going around and begging for money and continuing to deliver his paper
