  • Literally, a flashback episode. Thanks to XANA, Ulrich and several others lose their memory. Will Ulrich be able to fight XANA's monsters with amnesia?

    I love the comment Odd made about the nanobots not being able to cure Sissie’s stupidity. I also liked the revenge Ulrich took upon Odd: smashing the chocolate bar into his forehead. Sissie is so pathetic. Sneaking into the infirmary with a lie about being Ulrich’s best friend just so she could touch him? Something’s wrong there. The flashbacks Ulrich had about Sissie were pretty cool. The flashbacks he had all through the episode were pretty cool too. I like the format the creators used for them. It was absolutely perfect. It was pretty cool how Ulrich found his way to the factory by memory flashes. It had to be creepy for him though. It would scare the crap out of me, lol. I liked the part where Ulrich was transferred into Lyoko, but he fell out of the sky and landed on his butt and hurt himself. That was priceless! I liked the scene right after that where Odd fought Ulrich to refresh his memory about fighting in Lyoko. It was funny seeing them running to help Aelita and Yumi, but then all of a sudden, Ulrich jumps on top of Odd to try to finish him off and win the game. Ulrich’s reaction to Jeremie’s voice from Earth was pretty funny too.moreless
  • Ulirch gets amnesia, but keeps having flashbacks, could it be a X.A.N.A. attack, or is it a contagious disease?

    It starts out in the ice sector as X.A.N.A. activates a tower. In Mrs. Hertz class [empty] X.A.N.A. creats some nano goo in a nanosphere. Later when the class is there Mrs. Hetrz is explaning Nano technology. Sissi makes a funny comment and gets laughed at. As ulrich takes a sample odd shoves ulrich\'s nose into it, it zooms in and we see some nano machines.



    Later ulrich splatters chocolate all over odd\'s forehead as payback. Suddenly ulrich\'s head vains throb and he complains about the pain, then passes out. Later in the infermary sissi is adoring the unconcious ulrich. Suddenly he wakes up and cant remember anything. Sissi takes advantage of him and tells him she is his sweatheart, then has some visions of her. The nurse comes in, but sissi says he is okay and drags him out. As they leave jim comes in with another kid.



    In the courtyard sissi takes advantage of ulrich again and tells him that Yumi, odd and Jeremie are his worst enemies, and that Herb and nicholas are his friends. When odd comes over to see if ulrich is okay, ulrich tells him off. Later ulrich catches odd spying on him and threatens him. Ulrich has some more visions wich are followed by some pain. Ulrich heads off by himself.



    Later the rest off the gang figures out that X.A.N.A. is attacking after more people fall victom to amnesia, they head for the factory. Ulrich, with directions from a fellow student who runs away after, visits his room and has more visions. He soon heads for the sewers. Yumi and odd are virtulized in lyoko and are soon attacked by a crab, wich is deafeted soon after. Ulrich soon enters the factory, then the lab and talks to Jeremie. Soon he is virtulized, odd then stays back to train ulrich. Yumi goes ahead to meet up with aelita and head for the tower.



    Soon after they meet up aelita and yumi are ambushed by four crabs. Aeita cuts off two of the crabs with an ice wall, wich the crabs begin shooting. Ulrich and odd soon head to Aelita and Yumi\'s location. Yumi manages to beat one as they arrive, but is soon beaten herself. The ice wall comes crashing down. Ulrich and odd engages the crabs in a ferocious fight wich ends with odd and Ulrich double teaming the last crab over the top of it. Aelita enters the tower and deactivates it.



    After the return the past ulrich sets the jell over a burner. Mrs Hertz says ulrich is going to recive a punishment he will never forget, ulrich says he hopes he wont. It ends with everyone laughing as we overlook the courtyard.

  • Ulrich loses his memory!!! Will that stop the Lyoko team? THINK AGAIN!

    Once again, I am going to do a recap of the episode like I usually do!



    So, the episode starts as follows: Ulrich, Jeremie and Odd are in science class. The topic for the day is NanoDoctors. Mrs. Hertz says that the scientists in the lab sent them an example, but she notices that the container wasn't cleaned properly. There is blue goo in the container and Ulrich says, "It looks like the stuff Odd puts in his hair every day." Mrs. Hertz looks at Ulrich and replies, "Since you are so funny Ulrich, why don't you take an example for us to see?" While Ulrich takes the example, Mrs. Hertz talks about the NanoDoctors. Ulrich takes a closer look at the blue goo and Odd pushes Ulrich's face into the gel. The class all laugh at Ulrich along with Odd. Ulrich says, "I'll get you back for that!" But what Ulrich and Odd don't know are that nanobots are going inside Ulrich's head.



    Outside after Science class, the gang are talking. Ulrich opens up a chocolate bar, and Odd says, "Hey Ulrich, can I have a piece?" Ulrich says sure he and shoves the chocolate on his forehead. The gang start laughing and Odd says "Very funny, but it wasn't nice taking advantage of my sweet tooth." Then all of the sudden, Ulrich's head starts hurting and he faints. The gang are all in shock and Jim notices Ulrich and he takes him to the infermary. Sissi also notices Ulrich.



    In the infermary, Sissi tells Yolanda that she is one of Ulrich's best friends and Yolanda lets her in to see Ulrich. Sissi sits beside Ulrich and rubs his forehead. Ulrich wakes up, and Sissi stands up. Ulrich says "Where am I?" Sissi tells him that he is in the infermary and that he fainted. Sissi then notices that Ulrich doesn't remember anything and she tells him that she is his "sweetheart" Ulrich's head starts hurting again and Ulrich starts having some memories where he says, "I am allergic to anyone that's stuck up!" Sissi just stands there motionless and says nothing. Then the two of them go outside.



    Outside, the gang notice that Ulrich is hanging out with Sissi. Ulrich doesn't pay any attention to them, since Sissi told him that they are his enemies. Sissi then tells Ulrich that Herve and Nicholas are his best friends. Herve and Nicholas try to play along and act nice towards Ulrich. Away from Ulrich, Jeremie thinks that Ulrich has amnesia and Odd decides to follow him and see what's going on.



    In the woods, Ulrich and Sissi sit down on a bench and Sissi gives him a cookie. Ulrich asks Sissi if she is sure that he is going out with her. Just then, he notices that Odd is spying on him. Ulrich stands up angrily and he warns Odd that he will hurt him if he doesn't leave. Sissi then tries to give Ulrich another cookie but Ulrich says that he wants to be alone.



    Odd goes to the gang and tells them that Ulrich definitely has amnesia and that he thought Ulrich was going to beat him up. Yumi asks Jeremie if amnesia can be caught. They all notice Jim bringing another student to the infermary and Odd then says, "Too bad the NanoDoctors can't help Ulrich!" Jeremie then takes Yumi and Odd to the science lab and says that XANA has made Nanobots that gives amnesia to people. They notice that Mrs. Hertz has been affected and they immediately go to the factory.



    In his room, Ulrich sees Kiwi come up to him and he says, "I don't know who you are but it seems that we are friends...." Ulrich then sees a picture of him and the gang and once again, he has memories but this time, they are of Odd and him being friends.



    Ulrich then goes outside and sees the principal walking like a zombie. Ulrich once again has more memories. He has memorie of Yumi and how he likes her and basically, he has all memories about Yumi. He then has memories of the sewer in the forest and he goes to the sewer.



    In Lyoko, Yumi and Odd take Aelita to the tower. They are in the Ice Region and Ulrich comes in and Jeremie tells him that Yumi and Odd need him. Jeremie tells Yumi, Odd and Aelita to wait for Ulrich and that he is coming. Odd tells Yumi and Aelita to go on explaining that he will wait for Ulrich. Ulrich gets virtualized and Odd explains everything about Lyoko and shows him how to fight.

    Meanwhile, Yumi and Aelita are near the tower but they get attacked by 4 Krabes. Aelita makes an ice barrier in front of two of the Krabes stopping them for a while. Yumi destroys 1 of the Krabes. Jeremie tells Odd and Ulrich to go and help Yumi and Aelita. Ulrich runs over and destroys 1 of the Krabes and Odd destroys the other 1. Yumi, relieved to see Ulrich, gets distracted and gets devirtualized. Ulrich then destroys the other Krabe. Aelita thanks him and goes to the tower. Ulrich gets confused as to why she leaves and Odd says that the "game" is over. Aelita deactivates the tower and they go back in time.



    Once back in time, Ulrich, Odd and Jeremie are in Mrs. Hertz's class. Ulrich takes an example once again and this time he says, "Lets cook it" Ulrich cooks the gel and destroys the equipment. Mrs. Hertz angrily says, "Ulrich! Destroying school property is against the rules! You will get a punishment that you won't forget!"

    Ulrich says "I sure hope so!" Ulrich, Jeremie and Odd start laughing. Then, the episode ends.



    Overall, this episode was amazing and it was great to see all the memories Ulrich experienced and it was funny to see how clueless Ulrich was when he lost his memory. 10 out of 10!

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (10)

    • After Ulrich destroys the Krabe that stood in Aelita's way, you can see Ulrich's feet are teetering off the edge of the passage way, but he doesn't fall into the digital sea.

    • When Ulrich is having flashbacks in the Nurse's office, he remembers a conversation that he had with Sissi in the episode "Big Bug." The only problem is that the flashback in "Amnesia" doesn't exactly match the original scene.

    • When Ulrich goes to the factory, Jeremie tells him to enter into the elevator and go one level up to get to the scanners. In reality, Ulrich needs to go one level down to get to the scanners.

    • If you listen closely when Odd and Ulrich destroy the last krabe before the tower is deactivated, you can hear Ulrich say his well-known 'impact' phrase. How could he say that if his memory was near-erased?

    • When Jeremie had told Ulrich to go to the scanner room Jeremie told Ulrich to go in the elevator and go one level up, but the scanners are one level down.

    • At the end of the episode, why was there a Bunsen burner that was not being used, left on in the corner of the science table?

    • Distance error? When the camera swings partially behind Odd in one of his fight scenes with Ulrich in Lyoko, his purple shirt disappears and only its collar remains.

    • In one shot, the collar to Jeremie's turtleneck and way past the neck line is missing. You can even see the lines that define his collarbone.

    • At the end, the jelly stuff is still in the thing. Wouldn't that mean X.A.N.A's attack is still in effect?

    • Since we have seen Yumi and Ulrich sparring together in other episodes, and because her fighting style is closer to Ulrich's, why would Odd stay to re-train Ulrich? It would have made more sense to have Yumi do it.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Odd: Welcome to the virtual world, Ulrich.
      Ulrich: What is this place? What are we here for?
      Odd: To fight, of course.
      Ulrich: To fight? I don't know how to fight.
      Odd: But of course you do. You just forgot, but I'll refresh your memory. (Knocks Ulrich to the ground with his tail)
      Ulrich: Aww...
      Odd: Oops.

    • Sissi: Are these robots capable of fighting pimples, cellulite and things like that?
      Mrs. Hertz: Yes they can, but the priority is for more serious illnesses.
      Odd: And nanotechnology can't do a thing about stupidity. Poor Sissi, what a shame!

    • Ulrich: You're kidding. I'm allergic to anyone who's conceited... you're your own favorite fan club!

    • Odd: Hey, that looks good. Can I have some?
      Ulrich: Here!
      (Ulrich ramms the chocolate into Odd's forehead)
      Ulrich: I warned you!
      (Ulrich, Yumi and Jeremie start laughing)
      Odd: Yeah… but taking advantage of my sweet tooth wasn't fair!

    • (After amnesiac Ulrich destroys a krabe)
      Aelita: (running towards the tower) Thanks for clearing the passage.
      Ulrich: Huh, she's leaving?
      Jeremie: Uhh, not exactly total recall.

    • Ulrich: Jeremie, I'm coming!
      Odd: No, I'm Odd!

    • Ulrich: (to Kiwi) I don't know who you are, but it seems we're friends...
