  • Another fantastic Hanson

    Hanson is on top notch form again in this episode, so funny the look on his face when he realises he flirted with his teacher. I love the way she says the tyre is flat only on the bottom. I love geoffrey in this episode too hes so cool and has oe of the funnier lines in this episode i think when his dad asks where he's going and he's like out, where's out, not in haha hilarious stuff. I like how the episode twists at the end as well and you find out it was the janitor, it's very cool writing indeed and more brilliant acting by Deppmoreless

    • When Jeffrey is flipping through channels on the television, one station has a conspicuous title card that reads "Written & Directed by Patrick Hasburgh" - the co-creator of 21 Jump Street.  The only time Hasburgh was credited for both writing and directing was the movie "Aspen Extreme", which didn't come out until six years after this episode originally aired.

    • At the beginning of the episode there is an old newspaper article on the wall that is dated Saturday, June 4, 1971. In 1971, June 4 was actually a Friday.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Susan: High school boys don't kiss like that.
      Hanson: It's a good job, you'd never have graduated.

    • (Jenko arguing about Hanson's date with the teacher)
      Hanson: I'm sorry.
      Jenko: Hey, you're a person. You don't have to apologize for having a personal life. You should just always remember to have it on your 2-week-vacation each year.

    • Hanson: Good eye, Harry. Wait for your pitch.
      Ioki: Hey, you guys may have invented the game, but we perfected it.
      Penhall: Yeah, sushi and baseball both, right?

    • Susan: Hi.
      Hanson: Hi.
      Susan: Looks like you could use some help.
      Hanson: Yeah I could. My tire's flat.
      Susan: Only on the bottom.
