"The Diary" is the tenth episode of the Freaks and Geeks TV series. It was written by Judd Apatow & Rebecca Kirshnerv and directed by Ken Olin. The episode first aired on January 31, 2000.


Lindsay's parents forbid her from hanging out with Kim, because they think she's a bad influence. Bill grows tired of being picked last for teams for baseball in P.E. class and not being allowed to really participate, and he decides to do something about it.


Lindsay and Kim Kelley go hitch hiking and this is reported to Lindsay's father. As a result they ask to meet Kim's mom and have dinner with her. After this they get the impression that her mom is a saint, and she tells them that she figures out what bad things Kim has done by reading her diary. Lindsay's parents decide to read her diary and realize that she thinks of them as robots who do the same things each day. Lindsay is not allowed to hang out with Kim anymore which makes Kim mad at her.

Meanwhile Bill wants to be picked something other than last and so he sends his teacher a prank call and insults him. Later his teacher figures out that he did this and Bill explains how he feels about picking teams. Bill gets to pick his team and later catchs the ball in baseball but is so busy celebrating he forgot to get the stealer out. Lindsay befriends Kim no matter what her parents say and tries to make a statment to her parent by this.
