  • Ginger is honored for her writing ability by a reading of her poetry and she invites her estranged father. Carl orders a Sea snake and incubates it in the lemonade pitcher. Lois unknowingly ingests it and spends the night in the hospital, with Carl.moreless

    9.0
    You really get a feel for the family dynamics in this episode. Carl is into mischief as always, and Lois handles it in stride. You get the feel for how long and close of friends Ginger and Darren truely are. But most importantly you feel relationship between Ginger and her parents.

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • The Foutley house is at 711 Forest Avenue, Sheltered Shrubs, CT 06930 (we find this out from the envelope that held the letter from Ginger's dad).

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Joann: He looks diseased!
      (Referring to Carl)
      Hoodsey: Thats how he always looks mum!

    • Ginger:
      Hello stranger
      You came just in time
      I look for your face in a crowd or in line
      Hello stranger
      Not a moment too soon
      See- that old picture is fading in the drawer of my room
      Now toys have gone lost
      Baby teeth have come loose
      There were accidents involving stitches
      spilled juice
      Report cards were shown
      And one time I got sick
      But it's nothing I couldn't catch you up on real quick
      Hello stranger
      I saved you a place
      And it hardly seems strange
      Now that I've seen your face

    • Brandon: He's cute and friendly, and he loves to play got your nose, and his favorite thing is...
      Carl: Let me guess, bananas.
      Brandon: Correct!
      Carl and Hoodsey: No duh.

    • Ginger's Dad: Hello? Is this thing on? Oh. Hi, this is Jonas. Please leave a message and I'll get back to you. (dog barks) No, not you, Ben.

  • NOTES (1)

    • This episode was the first ATBG episode nominated for an Emmy for Best Animation less than 1 Hour. It lost to The Simpsons (for the episode "HOMR"). About The Simpsons, see my sidenote of it and ATBG in "Lunatic Lake". At that same time, another Nick show, Invader ZIM, won an Emmy for Outstanding Individual Effort in Animation, even though one year later, for some reason, Nick decided to cancel it despite OK ratings and its Emmy win.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Lois Foutley: "Will you buy a vowel already"?
      Lois was referring to NBC's popular, long-running game show "Wheel of Fortune" in which the contestants have to give up money to buy vowels (A, E, I, O, U).
