If you were a teenager in the early '00s, then chances are you watched The O.C. Even if you didn't watch (and you should know, you're seriously missing out) you heard about the dramatic make ups and break ups of Ryan and Marissa, Seth and Summer, etc. But, did you hear about the smooches? A teen show is not a teen show without some iconic pecks, and the best kisses on The O.C. truly rival all that came before.
The O.C. launched many ships over the course of its four seasons, but two really stand out: Marissa and Ryan, the rich girl and bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks, and Seth and Summer, the popular girl and the nerd. As two of the most popular ships in early '00s television, Seth and Summer, and Marissa and Ryan had more than their fair share of on screen make outs, and while all were enough to send teenage viewers swooning, there's no denying that some were better than others. The most iconic kisses in The O.C. tended to appear in exceptionally dramatic moments, often paired with the perfect indie rock soundtrack the show was known for, creating the most romantic moment a teenager could possibly want. And these 11 kisses on The O.C.were the stuff dreams are made of.
