  • another perfect episode

    An excellent episode. Eh, nothing much to say here but it was pretty enjoyable and the plot was very decent. The humor in this episode was average. Demonica (Lisa Archt), the manager, that want to replace Trish as Austin's manager, was funny in some scenes. Although the parts where she try to put on stuffs to do and then some people will do what she said was a little repetivite. I did laughed a few parts such the frown face on the pancakes, the man trying to sound like Trish, after Demonica try to be Austin's manager, Trish get mad (and yelled in one scene), "Are you gonna eat that (then eats it)" and the ending. Overall, an excellent episode. 10/10moreless
  • The Best Episode of "Austin and Ally" That I Have Ever Seen SO FAR

    I thought that this was a perfect episode of "Austin and Ally". It was the first perfect episode of "Austin and Ally" and I really enjoyed it. The humor, however, wasn't that good and it was lacking but that can be easily ignored since the storyline was handled very well and I feel like the storyline is just as important as the humor sometimes. I get very tired of hearing the whole "It's not like he/she is gonna tell/do something something" thing and then it actually happens type of humor.... I don't even consider that humor, I consider it lame and we all know that it's super predictable. Although, there weren't a lot of parts that made me laugh but if I were to say which parts that made me laugh.... it would have to be the hot-shot manager bringing Austin a gourmet dinner and music from the violinists near the beginning of the episode, Austin putting a frowny-face on his pancakes, that person sounding exactly like Trish and then Dez saying how it sounds nothing like her, everyone giving their group hug and then they stopped hugging when "that person who sounds like Trish" hugs them, and the very ending of the episode with the statue guy and his kids quitting and leaving (that part is probably the most drop dead hilarious scene in this entire episode). I'm also glad that Austin, Ally, Dez, and Trish got payback at the hot-shot manager near the end of the episode as well. Overall, not that much humor but the storyline was overall perfect and handled very yeah, this episode deserves a PERFECT score. 10/10moreless

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Ally: You're never gonna believe what we found out about Demonica. She threw away my song without even listening to it.
      Trish: And she sabotaged your Jam-a-thon gig to make me look bad.
      Dez: And she broke the keyboard on the wall and put it back up there to make it look like nothing happened to it.
      Ally: Dez?
      Dez: Fine, I broke it! But she's still a very bad person.

    • Trish: Client stealer.
      Demonica Dixon: I'd insult you back, but you have meatballs on you head. Do I need to?

    • Trish: Yeah, my life's great. I got a new job at Meatballas Restaurant. "We got game and unlimited bread sticks, fool!" And I'm managing a new client.
      Austin: Who?
      Trish: Him.
      (Trish points to Statue Guy)
      Ally: That's a person? I just polished him.

    • Trish: Hi, we're here to check in for the Jam-a-thon. My client, Austin Moon, is performing.
      Stage Manager: He was supposed to perform at 1:00. It's 4:00 now.
      Trish: What? There must be a mistake. Can he still sing anyway?
      Stage Manager: Oh, of course. Just not here. Try the bathroom. It's got lovely acoustics.

    • Trish: Hey guys, I've been thinking about Demonica Dixon, that finger-snapping, bluetooth-wearing, puppy-hating thief!
      Ally: How do you know she hates puppies?
      Trish: I don't. I just needed a third thing.

    • Demonica Dixon: Austin, let me make this easier for you. What's your wildest dream?
      Austin: That's easy. I'm being chased through a candy cane forest by a Viking, my grandma and a peanut vendor. They're throwing cantaloupes at me. Then it gets weird.
      Ally: Career. I think she meant your wildest career dream.

    • Demonica Dixon: So, Austin, what do you say? Are you ready to sign with Team Demonica?
      Austin: I have Team Austin. Ally writes the songs, Dez directs the videos and Trish manages us.
      Trish: Yeah, nice try, but it takes a lot more than a fancy lunch and some background music to impress Austin.
      Austin: Check it out! They turned my leftovers into a swan!

    • Demonica Dixon: Austin Moon, just the man I'm looking for. I saw your last webcast online and I think you're going to be a star.
      Austin: Awesome! Who are you?
      Demonica Dixon: Demonica Dixon. I manage seven of the top 10 acts on the pop charts. (Demonica's phone rings) Hello? Rihanna? Great. (to Austin) Make that eight. How'd you like to be nine?
      Austin: I kind of like being 15 'cause when I was nine I had chicken pox.
