Adam Brody (Seth Cohen) doesn’t like boats, so when he sails away in “The O.C.: The Ties That Bind (#1.27)” (2004) he is not in the boat at all. It is a 40-year-old stunt double in a wig that is actually sailing the boat.
SUMMER: This is a nightmare. I’m sweating to death, driving ten miles an hour on, like, a rickshaw, listening to this… music. SETH: Hey, do not insult Death Cab. SUMMER: It’s like one guitar and a whole lot of complaining.
Ryan: I owe you an apology. It’s my fault Seth took off last summer. Summer: No, Ryan, stop it. It is so not. Ryan: No, if I hadn’t left, then you guys would still be together. Summer: That is not true, he would’ve found some Cohen-y way to break us up. He can’t help it, he’s Cohen. Come, sit. Ryan: Okay, look, I know you have a boyfriend — Summer: Whoa, no. Who told you that? Ryan: I thought you told Seth that. Summer: No, see Zach and I? We’re just hanging out. He is not my boyfriend. I do not want a boyfriend, okay. I had a boyfriend, he sailed away.
