In "The To Do List," everything is going perfectly and to plan for overachiever Brandy Clark (Aubrey Plaza). She's just recently graduated high school, where she was valedictorian and gathered a bunch of other accolades, and is getting everything in order to attend her first year of college. In making her summer to-do list, Brandy lists the typical things like packing and registering, friends Fiona (Alia Shawkat) and Wendy (Sarah Steele) see as pretty lame. To show her some fun, they drag her to a party complete with lots of alcohol and attractive guys.
At the party, Brandy meets Rusty Waters (Scott Porter) and immediately starts crushing on him. Along with some advice from her older sister Amber (Rachel Bilson), Brandy is convinced that she can get Rusty but only if she gains some sexual experience first. To get there, she creates another to-do list with many sexual acts, all of which she thinks if she can do with other guys first, will get her her crush, to which she can lose her virginity.

Joe: Retaliation," and "Olympus Has Fallen."
Everything I Need to Do Before College
Brandy: "Let's do this. This is everything I need to do before college: H*** job, b*** job, r** job. Shocker: One who shocks. Hmm, maybe it's some kind of surprise. Tea bagging, must be British."Having decided that she needs more sexual experience before she can go to college, Brandy researches sexual acts. Her research brings up some interesting definitions.
Add Sexually Experienced to the Package
Brandy: "I'm engaging, smart, one I add sexually experienced to the package he'll totally want me."
Fiona: "Wow, I had no idea you could be so…"
Fiona: "Slutty. There are things on this list that I haven't even done, Brandy."
Wendy: "So you're gonna scam on other guys then hook up with Rusty?"
Wendy: "No offense, but, how? You said it yourself, he's totally out of your league."
Brandy: "I never said that."
Fiona: "I did."
Brandy: "Okay yes, he's out of my league now but not once I learn how to pearl necklace him… It actually sounds really elegant."
Fiona: "It's not."
Get Off the Stage, Virgin!
High School Principal: "Please welcome to the stage the president of Mathletes, Key Club Treasurer, editor of the school paper as well as well as her own self-published magazine, Women with a Y, valedictorian Brandy Clark."
Heckler: "Get off the stage, virgin!"
Sexual Pop Quiz
Amber: "Freshman year is like one big sexual pop quiz. You need to do your homework."
Brandy: "Homework, yeah"
Amber: "There's penises everywhere!"
Brandy: [taking notes] "There's penises everywhere."
Amber: "It was awesome!"
