  • Okay, three reasons to love this episode... Patty, Patty, and Patty.

    9.5
    The thing with JJ in this episode is great, well not great, but it starts a whole lot of other things. The Henry thing is cool too, I feel so bad for Henry working for Mr. Pryor, but I love Henry.



    The Helen thing was really good. I totally disagree with Helen, but it was really interesting seeing her and Amy and then her and Meg.



    PATTY! First of all, I love her penicillin line, and then theres her questions. I love Patty and her questions; we're exactly alike. And then when Mr. Pryor's like "I don't know why you have to be so different," I wanted to slap him, but then his follow up was okay. Yes Father.



    No Father. I LOVE IT! classic episode.moreless
