Jake picked up the note that Sam tried to pass to Randy. Randy wasn't paying attention and it fell to the floor. The note was confidential and contained information about Sam's crush on Jake.
Ted told Sam that he had never had a girlfriend. Sam thought the confession was hysterical, until Ted tried to make a move on her.
The after-party for the dance was held at Jake's house while his parents were out of town. Jake spent the party hanging out alone in his room, searching his yearbook.
This is false. Sam was actually saving herself for Jake Ryan which she revealed to Ted in the auto shop. After Ted got this information, he tried to use it to his advantage.
Ted approached Sam after Randy got off the bus. He was trying to ask her to come to a dance with him, but she told him how she really felt.
Sam's grandparents were staying with the Bakers for the wedding. Sam had no idea and she had quite the surprise when she arrived at home that day!
Long Duk Dong, an exchange student, was living with the Baker grandparents. He was staying in Mike's room where Sam was planning to stay while her grandparents occupied her room.
Caroline was Jake's girlfriend. Jake didn't feel like their relationship was working and after picking up Sam's note, he spoke with his friend about her.
This is false. Sam agreed to be Ginny's bridesmaid despite the way that Ginny treated her. Sam was by Ginny's side to help her prepare for the wedding.
Ginny thought that Sam was jealous of the attention she was receiving. Ginny had forgotten Sam's birthday as well, and then called her "selfish."
Sara accused Mike of hitting her. He didn't, but they did get into a small argument before their father intervened.
Ted tried to impress Sam at the dance. His friends didn't believe that he could actually talk to her, so he wanted to prove them wrong. He tried to dance with her but ended up dancing by himself.
In order to prove himself, Ted had to get a pair of Sam's underwear. He bet his friends that he was capable of doing it, even after the rejection he had just faced on the dance floor.
This is true. Long Duk Dong found a date at the dance who allowed him to cry on her shoulder. When he asked her if she had boys chasing her, she told him that she didn't.
Ginny was getting married. When we first meet her, we find out that her wedding is planned for the next day and that the Bakers are preparing for it.

Long Duk Dong went to the dance with Sam. After she excused herself from dinner, her grandmother made Sam take him with her. Sam was not thrilled.
This is true. Sam decided to help out Ted after he had helped her out by giving her information and advice about Jake. It was the only way he could win his bet.
Jake and Sam celebrated Sam's birthday. When Jake told Sam to make a wish, she told him that she already got her wish and they kissed.
Sam went to the auto shop to try to escape from Ted. Unfortunately for her, he was able to find her and apologize for his earlier behavior.
On the night of the dance, Sam's parents had dinner with Ginny's future in-laws. The two families were complete opposites but pretended to like each other.
Sam's grandparents answered the phone when Jake called her line. Sam had her own phone line in her room where her grandparents were staying and therefore had no idea that Jake was trying to contact her.
This is true. Sam's parents did eventually remember her birthday, although it was late. Her father couldn't sleep and came to wish her a happy birthday.
Jake saw Caroline and Ted kissing on the way to the church. He was surprised, but he wasn't mad since he was finally going to tell Sam how he felt.
Ted was under Jake's table at the end of the party. He was trapped, but it was for the better since he and Jake got to talk and make a deal with one another.
Caroline tried to feed Ted a birth control pill while he was driving. When she revealed what it was, he spit it out the window.
Sam was a bridesmaid at Ginny's wedding. Sam is a relative of Ginny as many bridesmaids are, although Ginny was unhappy with the way that Sam was treating her.
This is true. Jake was going to return Sam's underwear and let Ted take Caroline home. Ted was reluctant at first, but he eventually agreed to do it.
Ted had his friends take a picture to prove that he was with a girl. When his friends took the picture, they only got Ted in the frame instead of both Ted Caroline.
When Jake finally had his chance to speak with Sam, he asked if he could call her. She said yes, and decided to spend the rest of the day with him rather than go to Ginny's wedding reception.
Long Duk Dong told Jake that Sam was getting married at the church. Since he wasn't fluent in English, he meant that Ginny was getting married.
This is true. Ginny was high on muscle relaxers on her wedding day, almost turning it into a disaster. She stumbled to the altar and threw off her veil.
Long Duk Dong was missing on Ginny's wedding day. He was on a sidewalk where he had slept the night before while Sam's grandfather filed a missing persons report.
