  • Another great episode!

    9.5
    I really liked this episode of Alice, I Think. Alice joins a "High On Life" club just because she thinks the boy who's president of the club is cute. The club is going to sign a virginity pledge and Alice goes along with that. She doesn't even give it a second thought, really... or not much of one, but she doesn't really seem to take it seriously either. It's her parents' reactions to that that was quite funny; her mother is appalled that Alice would even consider this while her father is all for it and wants her to sign a Pledge for life! Seeing Alice interact with other teenagers in a somewhat normal way was interesting too, and shows that she can fit in, even if the group that she's fitting in with is a little out on the fringes as well.



    Overall, this was a funny episode, and I recommend that everyone watch it for a good laugh.moreless

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Wing: It took me two days to think of the 'ocean of your beauty' ending. But to be honest, I don't think any ocean is big enough for your beauty.
      Alice (thinking): What would Jesus do in this situation?
      (she runs from the room; later...)
      Alice: Okay, maybe He wouldn't lock Himself in the bathroom, but I'm sure He'd give Himself a little thinking time!

    • Alice: Please, Mac, please dump Wing for me, please!
      Mac (resigned sigh): All right.
      Alice: Thanks! Make sure you let him down easy... I don't want him to think I'm horrible.

    • John: Hey, Finn, what's up?
      Finn: What's up? I'll tell you what's up. I don't like the new direction of the band, okay? I was fine with the old direction, when we had no direction. When we just drank beer and played whatever we felt was right.
      Marcus: Yeah, when she wasn't here. (pointing at Diane)
      Finn: I was trying to be subtle, Marcus, but, yes, when she wasn't here.

    • Alice: Abelard, hey, are Mark and Becky a... you know...?
      Abelard: A couple? Yeah, but they're having problems right now.
      Alice: They are?
      Abelard: But I'm sure Jesus's love will get them through these rough waters.
      Alice: Or, they'll realize that Jesus never meant for them to be together in the first place.
      (Abelard looks shocked)
      Alice: ...Or what you said.

    • Marcus: I remember this one gig we did at Valley Green Nursing Home, we were doing this kick-ass rendition of Pink Floyd's Another Brick In The Wall, when suddenly, who walks up on stage to jam with us but Bowie himself!
      Skinny Male Fare: David Bowie?
      Marcus: Harold Bowie, you know him?

    • Alice: I am quitting the High On Life Club.
      Abelard: Wait... you're breaking up with Jesus?
      Girl: Don't go, Alice. Jesus loves you.
      Alice: It's not Him, it's me.

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • (giving advice to the band)
      Diane: I think you should all join in on the chorus. It'll give more oomph to the message of the lyrics.
      John: Great note, honey.
      Finn (coughing into his hand): Yoko!

      When Finn calls Diane "Yoko", he's referring to Yoko Ono, who is popularly 'credited' with being one of the factors that caused the Beatles to break up with her constant presence at their recording sessions.
