  • This week presents the original dance as well as a group performance.

    I was really looking forward to this episode because the group performance is always funny. I liked the group performance because they danced to one of my favorite songs and the choreographing was funny. The solos were pretty awesome too. My favorites were Jason's and Mario's. Theirs had to be difficult to learn. The original performances were pretty good too. My favorites were Marissa's and Kristi's. Kristi got a perfect score!!! I was wondering when it was going to happen since she's been at the top of the leaderboard since week 1. I'm a little disappointed in Marlee though. I know this must be hard for her because she's deaf, but I was really hoping her dance would be a bit better this week. The interview between Shannon and Derek was funny. You could tell they were uncomfortable with the questions Samantha was asking. Another funny scene was when Len said he was going to show his bum in the supermarket if Christian was in the bottom 2 this week. That was just too funny!moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (17)

    • Samantha Harris: (regarding Shannon and Derek's relationship) How close have you become? Let's have Derek answer this one.
      Derek Hough: We just went to the beach and got into character, what can I say?

    • Samantha Harris: So are you saying that this is just a "showmance?"
      Shannon Elizabeth: This is just - we're woking on our dances, you know, and...
      Derek Hough: We're serious about the routines, you know?

    • Shannon Elizabeth: This week I'm going to dance my heart out and show the judges that I do belong in this competition because I'm not ready to go home.

    • Shannon Elizabeth: I was definitely afraid that I might be going home last week, and the worst part about it is that this whole experience with Derek would be over and I wouldn't get to see Derek anymore.

    • Tom Bergeron: Last week, Bruno wondered how our star could be so big and so light at the same time. He's wondered the same thing about airplanes.

    • (Some of the judges comment after Shannon Elizabeth & Derek Hough's Rumba)
      Bruno Tonioli: The cardinal sin in the Rumba: hip action... none.
      Carrie Ann Inaba: You really are what the show is about. We're looking for beyond potential. You have the ability to make great shapes, but you just have to sustain them a little bit more.
      Len Goodman: Well, I liked the start, when they were walking away and then they turned: come on baby, light my fire. It needed a little more hip action here and there, but it was great!

    • (Some of the judges comment after Marlee Matlin & Fabian Sanchez's Mambo)
      Bruno Tonioli: What you do here, I believe it is a plus for the show.
      Carrie Ann Inaba: You guys look like you were forcing and struggling.
      Len Goodman: I thought you did a great job. It just, it looked uncomfortable throughout.

    • (Some of the judges comment after Cristian de la Fuente & Cheryl Burke's Fox Trot)
      Bruno Tonioli: Cristian at his dashing best. Your footwork tonight was excellent.
      Carrie Ann Inaba: There's a fine line between being rigid and refined, and tonight you passed way into refined.
      Len Goodman: If you're in the Bottom Two tomorrow, I'll show my bum in the supermarket.

    • (Some of the judges comment after Marissa Jaret Winokur & Tony Dovolani's Viennese Waltz)
      Bruno Tonioli: You were all light and frothy.
      Carrie Ann Inaba: I am definitely on the Winokur Wave.
      Len Goodman: Gradually we've seen your confidence grow, and you've come out now like a true princess.

    • Bruno Tonioli: (to Len Goodman) You are starting to get all crusty and stiffy again.
      Tom Bergeron: Those are two of the disfunctional dwarfs by the way.

    • (Some of the judges comment after Mario & Karina Smirnoff's Rumba)
      Bruno Tonioli: I think this was fabulous. I need an ice bucket.
      Carrie Ann Inaba: That was better than good sex. That was ridiculously good. But there was a lift, so I am gonna dock you for the lift.
      Len Goodman: I don't mind whenever you get it on, I don't particular lie you to get it on in the ballroom. The Rumba is a story of a developing romance. It's not the story of a strumpet and a gigolo. It was too raunchy for me.

    • Tom Bergeron: (To Mark Ballas before he goes backstage) We have a special guest in the audience. Paula Abdul everyone. You know why Paula's here? Because our show has twice the amount of British judges.

    • Tom Bergeron: (To Mark Ballas before he goes backstage) I love the Buddy Holly meet Urkel look.

    • (Some of the judge's comments after Kristi Yamaguchi & Mark Ballas' Jive)
      Bruno Tonioli: You've performed the best you ever have. My favorite dance to date.
      Carrie Ann Inaba: Hell, yeah! That is what I'm talking about! I think that was my favorite dance performed this season.
      Len Goodman: It was like a buffet. A tasty morsel here, a delicous move over there. Some cleavor chorography. Yum Yum.

    • (Some of the judge's comments after Jason Taylor & Edyta Sliwinska's Cha Cha)
      Bruno Tonioli: Your footwork wasn't as good as it could've been. I like to see you more exposed.
      Carrie Ann Inaba: Nobody can touch you when you hit your lines. It's beautiful. I think you're dancing smaller than you should be. Just be big. You have big man's syndrome.
      Len Goodman: Last week, I know I said you didn't have enough content in the routine. That's not the case tonight. My heart went out to you. You made me smile. You're trying to count one, two, cha cha cha.

    • Jason Taylor: Last week, Len said I didn't dance enough. But tonight, JT's 'bout to get his Cha Cha on.

    • Edtya Sliwinska: I want to make sure Jason is not going to get away with hiding behind me.
