Episode Summary

Rocket Club
When Franny loses her sense of boundaries and requests that Gary remove the locks from all the doors, Justin and his friends find time for themselves by creating the Rocket Club, which is their secret excuse to hang out and do whatever they want. Raja, however, does not fit in well with the group because he does not like the fact that all they do is nothing. He tries creating a real model rocket, which ends up getting the police involved.moreless

  • It was okay!

    Justin and his friends made up a fake "rocket club." It's their only chance to get away from everything. When Franny suggests that Raja join, things get complicated. Justin has made up a lot of lies like how the most popular guy in school was in it and that there were so many members that Raja might not be able to join and also that his guidance counselor, Mr. Matthews, is the supervisor. Claire tries out for cheerleading.

    This was a good episode! It shows how lies can keep getting worse. This episode gets a 9.0 out of 10 from me.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Raja: Sir, you should know that you are not going to find any evidence of terrorism. But you are going to find some very bad things on there. And that is because I used my computer to visit naughty websites of naked women.
      Franny: You look at pornography?
      Raja: Oh yes! It is very exciting to me to see women being made to flaunt themselves. And sometimes, I imagine that it is I who am taking the pictures. That is, of course, after I've tricked them into believing that I am M Night Shyamalan.

    • Justin: (voiceover) Raja, meanwhile, had decided that if he actually built a model rocket, he wouldn't be lying.
      Salesman: Can I help you, son?
      Raja: Yes please. I need some flame-resistant wadding, reinforced cylinders, a really long fuse, detonation caps, and a radio-controlled timing device or simple alarm clock.
      Salesman: Can you, uh, wait right here?
      (Runs away in a panic)
      Raja: Certainly, sir.

    • Justin: (voiceover) The only real freedom I ever got was once a week at Rocket Club, which didn't even exist. You see, Craig, Dooley, and me just made it up as a cover one time 'cause we wanted to see Charlize Theron naked in the movie North Country.
      Dooley: Who told you there was nudity in this?
      Craig: Look at her, she's filthy. I mean, eventually she has to shower.
      Justin: (voiceover) Turns out, strip mining was not what we thought it was...

    • Raja: Rocket club was... um... the grandest club in the whole school!
      Justin: Yes, I agree.
      Raja: And tonight, we built the largest model rocket that has ever been built in any such a club!
      Franny: Really?
      Raja: Ten feet tall, (motioning) this big around.
      Franny: Why, I hope that's not dangerous.
      Raja: Oh it is. Mrs. Tolchuck, it is very dangerous.
      Franny: Well, are they going to send you home with permission slips or what?
      Raja: We already have an Everest mountain of permission slips!
      Justin: Yeah, we left them there and I'm ready to pass out hungry. You said you were hungry too, right?
      Raja: Yes, I am famished because we have built such a glorious rocket and next week, we will be taking pictures for our website and also unveiling our brand new uniforms!

    • Gary: (to Franny about Justin looking at porn) Um, all guys look at that kind of thing...until they grow out of it.

    • Mr. Matthews: Can we make this fast? I'm entertaining a lady friend in my convertible... top down!

    • Claire: Dad, you're still not finished? I want to be a cheerleader this year!
      Gary: It's a lot to read after three beers!

    • Gary: (opening a drawer) Ah, another one full of action figures! I used to beat up kids like this!

    • Franny: (holding up a shirt with the Canadian flag on it) Gary, is this the marijuana leaf?
      Gary: I think it's the Canadian flag.

    • Franny: There was a boy on the bus smoking marijuana?
      Justin: I'm on the toilet!
      Franny: Don't try and change the subject, mister!

    • Raja: Does the Emancipation Proclamation apply to all slaves or just those in the South?
      Mr. Lester: (hesitating) That's more of a college question.

    • Justin: (voiceover) My mom thought bringing in an exchange student would improve my status at school, but change was slow to come.
