  • Scary!

    Annie and Matt are robbed while they are on the road. The thief takes Annie's wedding ring. Lucy and Jimmy are both running for class president. Mary wants a tattoo. Simon and Ruthie get the chicken pox. Annie seems fine with what happened while Matt is really in shock.

    I loved this episode! It would've been really scary to be Matt. A gun was pointed at him! Getting the fake tattoo was clever of Mary! I really liked Mrs. Hinkle! She's so awesome! Simon and Ruthie are so cute! This episode gets a 10 out of 10!moreless
  • Matt and Annie get car-jacked and at first Matt is tramatized. But later, it hits Annie as well, can she grasp life as she knows it before it slips away?

    This show scared me, but I am very glad they put it on. It shows how dangerous life can be on the road. When the robber pulled Annie's ring off her finger, to me it seemed as if he had hurt her, and that scared me. To me, Annie was the one who didn't get scared. Well, I thought that until I saw this episode. I still really like the episode though. I believe it teaches that life has its ups and downs, and you need to be able to roll with the punches, or else... It was one of the best and I hope that there are more of them to come.moreless
  • A very well written episode of 7th Heaven when Matt and Annie get car jacked.

    The episode begins with Annie and Matt driving in their car. Annie stops the car, with Matt still in it. All of a sudden a stranger points a gun to Matt's head. When Annie comes back the stranger asks her for any money that she had, when she hands him her purse, he yells at her to give him her wedding ring too. When she gives him that, he runs off.

    The next day Matt feels guilt over not defending Annie. But he tries to shake the whole thing off. Until he has to drive Lucy and Mary to school. When he sits in the drivers seat, he is frozen with fear. He then decides to go get help at group meetings.

    Annie on the other hand, seems fine after the whole ordeal. She keeps on saying to her family that she is fine, but when she walks downstairs at night, she has to have Happy with her. Then when her and Mary go to the store and a stranger goes up to Annie, giving her her sunglasses, she panics. It then hit the family that she isn't okay. So Annie decides to go get help with Matt, and they tackel the ordeal together.

    This is a very special, tear jerking episode. It is well acted and deals with a very serious issue well.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • After visiting with Annie for a while, Patricia Hamilton says that she has to get back to her kids, because there's always trouble when "the big kids are left with the younger ones". However, since it's in the middle of the school day, and all the Camden kids are in school, why would the Hamilton kids be at home?

    • In the first scene, Simon asked Ruthie to hold her breath while he grabbed something from the room. When she finally agreed, she stood up and faced Simon's back while the camera focused on him (and she was out of the shot). When we see Ruthie at the table again, she was sitting down, took a breath, and then stood up.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Jimmy: I thought you could find something you don't like about me and use it as a reason to keep Lucy from seeing me.
      Eric: Oh, so she could be mad at me instead of being mad at you?
      Jimmy: An unintentional but admittedly fortunate biproduct.

    • Matt: I don't know what's wrong with me. I just can't pull it together.
      Eric: Matt....last night, a man held a gun to your head and threatened your life. Now it would be nearly impossible for anyone to just pull it together.

    • Simon: Mom was scared?
      Matt: Yeah, Simon, she was.
      Simon: I didn't think Mom or Dad ever got scared.
      Matt: Well, you were wrong, because she was scared. We both were.

    • Matt: I couldn't move. I couldn't breathe. I couldn't even think.
      Eric: Those are all normal feelings and reactions.
      Matt: Not for Mom. She's been so calm about everything, and I just sat there while that piece of junk took all our stuff.
      Eric: What do you think you should have done?
      Matt: I don't know....something. Anything but just sitting there and letting some guy rip off Mom's wedding ring.
      Eric: You can't blame yourself. Whatever you did, it was perfect. It was perfect because it got you and Mom home safely. And it was just a ring. It wasn't our marriage.

    • Annie: And tell Eric I'm fine.
      Patrica: I have no idea of what you're talking about.
      Annie: (smiling) How long is Eric planning to work this afternoon?
      Patrica: He'll be done by six.
      Annie: You wanna call him from here?
      Patrica: No, I'll wait until I get home, so he'll think his plan worked.

    • Eric: (to Matt) Tell Mary and Lucy I'm driving them to school and if they're not out here in 30 seconds we're going to sing along the way. In rounds.

    • Simon: (to Annie) Weeks ago I said Ruthie shouldn't move in with me, but did anybody listen? No. And what happens when nobody listens? (pulls up shirt to reveal chicken pox) Someone gets hurt!

    • Annie: I just keep thinking about what would have happened if just one thing had been different....if a gust of wind had suddenly kicked up, or a leaf had fallen on his shoulder, that man could have killed my son.
      Eric: You can't think about what could have been, you have to think about what is. You're okay, and Matt's okay, and God was watching out for you both that night, and you have to have faith that He always will.
      Annie: I know. You're right. I know you're right. I just don't know how to stop being afraid.
