    Justin has to deal with the school bully, Trey. When his mom gets into a small fender-bender, he lies and says his mom is in a comma. Raja gets dragged into this lie also. Franny leaves a note on the car she scratched. Gary comes by the same place and completely hits the car that Franny hit. Now the owners of the car are getting the law involved. Trey becomes Justin and Raja's friend, but things get complicated for Justin when he must keep lying. Trey finds out that Justin lied.



    This episode was great! It was pretty funny! I don't really like Trey at all. I loved the part when Justin was worried about Franny. This episode gets a 9.5 out of 10!moreless

    really great episode.I have been waiting for the show since the strike ended and this episode made me realise just how much i missed my monday night dose of humour. Justin's effort to wiggle himself out of a beating showcases some of the lies we all told in high school no matter what they were. i loved the way sound of music was incoporated into this episode and 'sing along' factor was hilarious. gary's attempt at fixing the situation adds as a reminder that sometimes a little honesty goes a long way and sometimes it is best to not run away.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • (After Franny tells Gary about her little fender bender and leaving a note on the car)
      Gary: What if this hybrid owner isn't as moral as us? I mean, the reason they drive those golf carts is because they feel guilty about something.
      Franny: Oprah Winfrey has a hybrid, end of discussion.

    • Justin: Is she okay? Is my mom alright?
      Mr. Matthews: Calm down, Tolchuck. If something were seriously wrong, I would've found you myself, which reminds me, you know which class Kenny Henderson's in?
      Justin: What? No!
      Mr. Matthews: Mmm...I would not want to be him right now.

    • Franny: Gar, speed through the commercial.
      Raja: I do not think it is right to not watch the commercials. Commercials are how we pay for the show. Otherwise, I think we are stealing.

    • Franny: C'mon kids! We're going to be late for school. I'll meet you outside. (walks out)
      Claire: Why does she think she's taking us to school? I thought we put an end to that.
      Raja: I may have suggested that it would be convenient if she picked us up and dropped us off today.
      Justin: Yeah, convenient for the people wondering whether or not to beat us up.
      Raja: Look, in Pakistan, it is an honor to be dropped off by your parents. (Claire and Justin give weird looks) Okay, it is not cool there either, but the bus is so dirty!

    • Justin: (Voiceover) They say you should try to apreciate the here and now because you never know when something horrible's going to happen.
      Franny: Great news, Justin!
      Justin: (voiceover) And here it is now.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Franny: (reading as she signs a football) 'With Love, Lynn Swann'… (to nobody in particular) whoever the hell she is.

      Lynn Swann is a retired All-Pro wide reciever for the Pittsburgh Steelers, winning four Super Bowl championships during his career (IX, X, XIII, XIV). After football, he worked as a commentator for ABC's Monday Night Football, and made an unsuccessful gubernatorial bid in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 2006.
