  • Not the greatest, but definatly a fantastic episode worthy of a \"top-three\" slot of greatest Chipmunk episodes.

    Despite the huge number of errors in this episode, this is one of the greatest chipmunk episodes of all times. I wont nitpick this episode to death, but out of the 3rd generation Chipmunk episodes, this is most likely the best one to come around. It\'s a great character builder for the group (especially Elenore and Theodore) and shows what happens when they turn on each other to get out of trouble. This is not the greatest episode of all time, but I would put it in my top three and a must-watch for Chipmunk fans.moreless

      Theodore: You ate the chili at lunch, too, huh?

    • Eleanor: (walks up to the judge's table) Brittany didn't do it, your honor.
      (the others stop and react)
      Eleanor: I was in the auditorium with her.
      Brittany: You watched me rehearsing?
      Eleanor: No. I was busy rehearsing, too. Only, at the other end of the auditorium.
      Brittany: But, Eleanor, all the other parts in the play are taken.
      Eleanor: I know. I'm trying out for the lead.
      Brittany: But... But I always do the lead in the school play. Everybody knows that.
      Eleanor: Well, maybe it's time to share the spotlight a little, Brittany. I'm going to try out this afternoon.
      Brittany: But why didn't you say something about this before?
      Eleanor: Because you never listen. You're, uh, uh, a glory hog, Brittany.
      Brittany: Oh. I'm sorry.
      (the eldest and youngest sisters hug)
      Brittany: I never knew I made you feel that way. Of course you should try out, Ellie. And may the best girl win.
      Alvin: Objection, your honor! She's hugging the witness!
      Theodore: (bangs gavel) Objection overruled! I allow hugging in my court.

    • (after Brittany's story)
      Alvin: Your honor, alone in the auditorium? I mean, come on! Where'd she get this story? Alibis-R-Us? She has no one who can back up her story, because she was out knocking over the statue!
      Simon: I knew she did it! Throw her to Miss Pinch!
      Jeanette: Come clean, Brittany. Admit it!
      Brittany: I didn't knock over the statue! Honest! I didn't! (cries) I throw myself on the mercy of the court!
      (she throws her body on the table, but Alvin, Simon, and Jeanette try to get her off; Brittany screams in agony)
      Alvin: Oh, Miss Pinch! We have the guilty one!
      Brittany: NO!! NO!!
      Alvin: Miss Pinch!
