  • Red carnations.

    Eh, this episode was just okay in my opinion. Nothing really happened, I guess it just shows the characters grow more, and their personality. Like Patrick & Kat have to pick up trash together, and in the end, and through the hole episode, Kat is getting followed by a pervert, and when he gets beat up, she assumes its Patrick, but it turns out to be Mandella. What does that mean? It was weird, the whole situation. Cameron sends Bianca a carnation. But stupid Chastity had to throw it away. Gosh, she is so annoying. It was Bianca's idea for the carnation sale in the first place! Well this show is getting better.moreless
  • Season 1, Episode 2

    This episode was quite good. It showed how good this series is and how it can grow to become more than just a movie made into a tv show, but it can actually be a tv show by itself. Bianca wants to show Chastity that she can be helpful by throwing a fundraiser for the cheerleaders by selling carnations. Chastity sees that Joey and Cameron sent Bianca carnations so she gets rid of them and Bianca is very upset she didn't receive any flowers. Kat gets a flower from the perv from the girl's bathroom. The perv is beat up and Kat thinks it was Patrick, but we find out it was Mandella. Mandella is definitely a fun character that I enjoy watching on screen and I wasn't as annoyed by Michael as much as the pilot episode. Can't wait for the next episode!moreless
  • A charming episode

    I am all for long love stories with UST and biting your nails to see what will happen and I was really kind of looking forward to see how the writers deal with both Patrick and Kat, and Bianca and Cameron but from this episode I was confused.

    First off, Bianca and Cameron seemed doomed before they even start. How are they going to work that, or are they even going to make it go the same way as the film?

    Secondly, Kat and Patrick seem to like each other already and giving the fact we barely know what Patrick sounds like from his complete lack of lines, how is that even possible? Moving too fast? Definitely in my opinion.

    I fear that doing this the writers are just signing their chance for a longer series away.moreless
  • OK, the show is getting a little better.

    I was impressed that the second episode was as good as it was. this is the episode were the heat starts to rise.

    Bianca sets up a fundraiser in order to get money for the cheerleader's pom poms. She hopes to get some herself but mean Chastity throws them away. She tries to confront her, but she brakes at the last minuet. I have to say, I really like Kat. She is being stalked in this episode by a weird perv who likes to go into the girls bathroom.I love how she believes that it is Patrick but it is really Michael.

    Better then the first episode I'd say. :)moreless

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Mandella: So you're not hoping to get [a carnation]? Not even a little tiny bit?
      Kat: From who? Every guy here has the depth of an inflatable kiddy pool.

    • Michael: Cameron, how's it going?
      Cameron: Not so good. I feel weird. Ever since Bianca got here, my head has been filled with rainbows and Enya.

    • Bianca: Kat, I need your help.
      Kat: Finally. The first step is admitting you have a problem. The next step is making you a brunette again.

    • (after Walter suggests to Bianca to have a car wash for a fundraiser)
      Kat: Great idea, Dad! Half-naked cheerleaders, wet and soapy, standing on a street asking for money.
      Walter: No car wash.
      Bianca: Daddy.
      Walter: No car wash!

    • Bianca: Mail me to another family.
      Delivery Lady: Okay, but first, here's your dad's package.
      Bianca: I don't wanna think about my dad's package.

    • Mandella: That was awesome. It's like your mouth knows kung-fu!

    • Charlie: (after leaving a carnation on Kat's desk) I showed you my flower. Now show me yours.
      Kat: Leave... me... alone!

    • Kat: I just have one thing to say to you. I'm not that girl.
      Patrick: What girl?
      Kat: The girl who's turned on by the spat boy crap. I'm not skipping home to scribble in my journal that maybe you're a vampire.
      Patrick: Noted.

    • Larry: Excuse me, which way are the foxy moms?
      Deliveryman: Shame on you. You're married!

    • Bianca: (about Chastity) Kat was right. For a popular girl, she is a teenage Long Duk Dong.
      Cameron: I'm sorry, who?
      Bianca: The dictator of North Korea.

    • Larry: You girls are late. Where were you?
      Bianca: We were having sex with the soccer team. It took longer than expected.

    • Kat: (about the yearbook pictures she took) It looks like one of those herpes commercials where everybody is so happy despite the fact that they have herpes.

    • Chastity: (About the fundraiser) Okay, but no bake sale. The last thing this school needs is more fat people.

  • NOTES (2)


    • Bianca: I thought I'd learn the routine because, God forbid, someone gets sick or hurt or pregnant. Thanks a lot, Juno!

      Juno, a fictional character played by Ellen Page in the 2007 film of the same name, is a pregnant teen who has to decide between aborting her baby or giving it up for adoption.

    • Kat: Ohhh to bad, I think I saw a glare from your Devil horns, Beelzebub.

      Beelzebub is a name of demon derived from the Philistine god Ba'al Zebûb. In literature, it is often depicted as a fallen angel, a high-ranking demon, or Satan himself.

    • Kat: High school is like Vietnam and these stupid flowers are Agent Orange.

      Agent Orange is the code name of the herbicide sprayed over South Vietnam by the US military during the Vietnam War which resulted in hundreds of thousands of casualties.

    • Kat: I'm not skipping home to scribble in my journal that maybe you're a vampire.

      This is a reference to Twilight, where mysterious Edward catches the eye of Bella, who later finds out that he is a vampire. Or also it can be a reference to the Book and TV series The Vampire Diaries which was about a girl, Elena Gilbert who caught the eye of two Vampire brothers and kept a journal.

    • The episode name is a reference to 1977 Cheap Trick song of the same name. Several cover versions have been recorded including one by Letters to Cleo from the original 10 Things I Hate About You and one by KSM, which serves as the show's theme song.
