Character Bio

Seth Cohen photo
He was befriended at the start of the series by Ryan Atwood (Benjamin McKenzie) and has enjoyed a rise in popularity ever since then. Before Ryan's arrival, he was ignored by most of his peers, including the future love of his life, Summer, due to his awkward nature and unusual hobbies. Soon after Ryan's arrival, Seth became friends with Marissa Cooper (Mischa Barton) and started dating Summer Roberts (Rachel Bilson). Seth's goal was to attend Brown University but he ends up going to RISD and continuing work on his comic book, "Atomic County."
Seth is close to both of his parents and often playfully teases them. Though he occasionally will not accept their help or advice, he does so sometimes and seems to value their opinions and knows they would do anything for him and vice versa. Seth is shown to care very much about his mother. His actions are demonstrated in episodes such as "The Dearly Beloved" when Seth hesitates to send his mother to rehab and in "The Man of the Year" when he takes care of her when she's relapsed in her drinking.

Seth Cohen: [Ryan has woken up in the hospital after getting hurt in the earthquake, Seth is sitting in a chair in his room] Although, you're going to have to wrap your head about the fact that we're really brothers now... We're blood brothers.
Ryan Atwood: You... donated blood?
Seth Cohen: Eh, I had an extra few pints flowing through my veins. It was no big deal.
Ryan Atwood: Hm. You're not a big fan of needles.
Seth Cohen: Nor of fainting, it turns out. But, the bank was a little low and us O negative guys gotta stick together.
Ryan Atwood: Hm. It's weird, cause all of the sudden I have this strange urge to listen to Death Cab and read comic books.
Seth Cohen: For real?
Ryan Atwood: No. I'm kidding.
04x08 - The Earth Girls Are Easy Season 4 / Episode 8: - The Earth Girls Are Easy

Seth Cohen: [putting down the bag with the pregnancy test] When I found out it was your pregnancy test I totally freaked out, and I thought, this'll change everything. But then Ryan asked me if I could imagine a time when I'd ever not wanna be with you, and I realized that the answer is no.
Summer Roberts: I'm totally pregnant, aren't I?
Seth Cohen: I don't know.
Summer Roberts: What do you mean you don't know?

Summer Roberts: Is that gonna like squirt invisible ink or something?
Seth Cohen: No, but it will make you engaged to me.
Summer Roberts: What? Are you insane?
Seth Cohen: Possibly, but I'm certain on this.
Summer Roberts: No, Cohen, we can't.
Seth Cohen: Sure we can, we're both adults, we don't share DNA...
Summer Roberts: But...
Seth Cohen: You just have to want to. I do.
Summer Roberts: Don't you think we should look at the test first?
Seth Cohen: And have you wonder for the rest of your life if I proposed to you because you're pregnant? I'm doing this because I love you and I wanna spend the rest of my life with you.
Summer Roberts: You know, once you do this, you can't take it back.
Seth Cohen: I know. Summer Roberts, will you marry me?
