Millie tried to keep church camp boyfriend a secret in ‘Freaks and Geeks’

Millie Kentner is the portrait of straight-laced awkwardness in the 1999 show Freaks and Geeks so Lindsay is shocked when she sees her childhood friend kissing a guy in the school parking lot in the “Tricks and Treats” episode (Season 1, Episode 3).

Millie (Sarah Hagan) tries to play it off at first when Lindsay (Linda Cardellini) asks who the guy is, but relents. “You weren’t supposed to see,” Millie tells her. “That’s Tommy my secret love. We met this summer at church camp.”

Millie then pleads with Lindsay to keep it a secret. “Tommy and I don’t even French kiss yet. Tommy said that if you do before you’ve been going out for six months you go to hell.”

When Lindsay asks why she kept him from her, Millie said she didn’t want Lindsay feel bad since she didn’t have a boyfriend. Tommy, who is played by Jon Kasdan, makes only one appearance in the criminally short one-season run of the show.
