  • okay so maybe it's just about Ember and her friends.

    I love all of the girl ghosts. They are so cool. And they are all in one episode. They all have new tricks. But of course the girls and their new tricks are stopped. I do not know what to say as to Ember and Skulker being a couple. So only three girls are not possessed. Not just any three girls. I this Same rocks at being Danny. It is not creepy at all. She looks good as Danny Fenton. Of course when Sam does not think Jazz's plan will work she has to go with her own. Then of course in the end Jazz's plan works. But Jazz and Sam friends!?In this episode the girl goes in the ghosts zone are all frustrated with their boyfriends and decide to take it out on all men in general saying they're all worthless or ignorant. So with a special kissing power one of the ghost sends all the men in Amity Park away for a day while Danny and his father do some father-son bonding out on a lake. My favorite part of this episode is when Danny's father loses catching a fish no bigger than a foot and tips over the bow and says if anybody asks it was this big impostures with his hands about 6 feet long. This episode was hilarious to level I can even explain to you. I laughed so hard for so long with Danny and this father bonding. If only, if only. Just kidding. This episode wasn't as good as some of the others, but it was still pretty good. I never knew Kitty had a power. When she blows a kiss, she make men disappear. I wish I had that power. It's cool how she made the men of Amity Park disappear. It was a good thing Danny was away fishing with his father. Jazz's comment when Tucker disappeared was funny. She asked Sam if he did that often, and Sam replied by saying she wished. I also liked Danny's comment at the beginning of the episode when Johnny was about to leave. Danny told him to leave and take the "dork of darkness" with him. The dork of darkness refers to Johnny's shadow. It was funny how Jack kept trying to talk to Danny, but ended up looking in that book for instructions. How can you have trouble talking to your son? It was also funny how Jack gave Maddie a picture of himself before he left with Danny. He looked as if he were posing. I wonder who took that picture. I can't believe Jazz tried to name their ghost hunting group. She called everyone ghost getters. She was number one, Tucker was number 2, Sam was number 3, and Maddie was number 4. I absolutely love the scene where Kwan and Dash were fighting over who loved Ember's song more! Kwan told everyone Dash loved boys bands and he got mad and started fighting him. I can't believe Skulker and Ember went out. That's gross. Danny's comment when Skulker told him he had a girlfriend was funny. He told him he couldn't believe he had a girlfriend and Skulker told him that just hurts. Danny then attacked him. When Skulker was being chased by that bird, I lost it. I started laughing my head off. I don't know why I found it so funny, but it was hilarious! Danny brought up his cat comment again. He loves telling people to get a cat. That and the fruitloop comment. Sam and Jazz's fights were funny too. I still can't believe they ended up friends in the end and went out to get ice cream. Danny was shocked. He thought they were under some sort of spell or something. It was funny how Danny told Jack there was a rain storm when he woke up and saw he was soaked. Danny's expression when he said that was funny. He looked as if he were in a trance or something. I can't believe Sam dressed up as Danny to trick Ember, Spectra, and Kitty! I'm surprised no one could tell she was a girl. Once again, we see Jack's heroic side. When Danny was eaten by the monster ghost, Jack saved him and fought off Skulker. This was a good episode. Thing was how can Danny and Jack be so far away that the spell couldn't work? It would have been better if the spell went around the entire world. I liked this episode cause it had my favorite villian Ember. Ghost getters that is some name. Of course I live in America so it hasn't aired yet in America but I was able to watch it thanks to everybodys best friend the internet. It would be better if they had less of watching Sam, Jazz, and Maddie fail and have more Danny fighting Skulker. Overall pretty good episode

    Peace. The plot's pretty straight-forward, as most of the DP plots are. Some of our infamous ghost girls get tired of the disloyal, bumbling or annoying men in their afterlives, and decide to rid the world of all of them, leaving only Sam, Jazz and Maddie to put a stop to them and bring back the males.



    While this is going on, Danny and Jack find their fishing trip to Lake Eerie (which conveniently offers protection from magic spells) interrupted by Skulker, who's intent on proving to his girlfriend (I won't say her name b/c the shock is half the fun) that he is NOT a lousy hunter.



    This episode has been a terrific break from the lack-luster performances of 'Eye for an Eye' and 'Infinite Realms' (the latter, especially). The villains were competent and in character, which was a likeable contrast to the bouncing manner of Vlad, who seems to keep switching from the greatest to the most pathetic villain in the entire series. We finally see Kitty fight in this episode, mostly with Johnny, but to see her that violent certainly dispels the myths that she can't fight, which as Spectra says 'makes me like her more and more.'



    We get another short song from Ember, which I have to say just keeps getting caught in my head every time I think of the episode. It certainly fits her 70s-80s rocker style…just wish Jazz hadn't cut her off.



    And Jack: Jack was definitely on his game in this episode, both as a comic relief and as a ghost hunter, AND it was one of the few episodes that we see him out of his jumpsuit, once again sporting his camping/fishing gear from 'Fenton Menace'. Though I think one of my favorite Jack moments was his awkwardly trying to start up a conversation with his usually distant son, and (finding nothing else to talk about) realizes he can talk to him about his relationship with 'that gloomy girl that you like, uh, like!' This elicits a typical stutter from Danny, as well as a 'well…maybe' which, of course, is cut off by the Ghost Zone's Self-Proclaimed Hunter and Tracker.



    Okay, now we have the deeper points of an episode: Acting and Dialogue.



    Now don't get me wrong, I love Kath Soucie. I've heard her in everything from 'Gargoyles' to 'W.I.T.C.H.' (by the way, both GREAT shows!), and have been impressed by her work in practically everything. However, her performance in 'Danny Phantom' hasn't always met with those standards. Many times I've found that she's kinda exaggerated her lines and seemed a little too cartoony, and although this is a cartoon, I like to think that it's just a liiiitle too serious for that. Luckily, these problems didn't seem to apply for this episode, from her squealing to Jack's leaving for a weekend to her annoyance to being around the forever overbearing Mrs. Pamela Manson, she was right on track…as much as she can be for Maddie's character anyway.



    Oh, if only Vlad had thought of that…



    Overall, this episode was good, no question. It actually inspired me to watch 'Torrent of Terror'…which unfortunately dragged DP right back into its Season Three rut. But regardless, if you're going to see any new episode of Danny Phantom, make sure it's this one! Basically, the boys disappear, they come back, yadaa, yadaa, yadaa. You probably heard the review 10 billion times. I really hate writing this, but they're making me write this stupid review. Oh, and I thought that the beginning was a little sloppy, but everything else was good. The reason it gets a ten is because of the D/S moments. Watch the episode. P.S.- I think that the 3rd season is showing Danny's feelings for Sam are growing bigger, because a lot of the season three episodes are showing little D/S moments. Ex-Boxed Up Fury, Torrent of Terror,Livin' Large,and Girls Night Out. Those are the only ones I could think of. If you look at the reviews of each of these episodes that I wrote, it will explain why. Sam and Valerie are hanging out and ditching Danny and Tucker? It's got some chance of DxS or DxV. I've read a few summaries of this from different places, but the one that shows up the most is that Sam and Valerie are hanging out and she's dissing Danny and Tucker. That doesn't sound very much like Sam to me. But it has some chance of DxS or...DxV. (I do not like DxV) It's not that great of an episode idea, if you ask me, unless it's DxS. I mean Sam wouldn't ditch Danny and Tucker for Valerie...would she? Remember in FWD and RS she's telling Danny not to get too close to her, for obvious reasons. Is she really going to change her mind that quickly? And if she is, she's not going to blow off her best friends for her.



    This could be a good conflict episode too. It could make Danny really mad that she's dissing him for her or Valerie and Sam could get in a fight with each other because they both like the same boy.



    It could also be a friendship or even relationship building episode too. Sam could ask Val for advise, Valerie and Sam are, obviously, going to become best friends, and Sam could even tell Danny her feelings. But if this happens and they show the episodes out of order, in one episode she can be secretly crushing on him and in another they could be going out, especially if this is like RT or TUE. (Rumor has it that RT was supposed to be before Kindred Spirits, DCMH, ect. In TUE Danny finds out Jazz knows about his secret but in the next episodes, he has no idea.)



    This is just a prediction, so this has nothing to do with the real outcome. This is just what I think will happen and my thougths on it. Thanks for taking time to read this.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (10)

    • Look Hard: When Sam revealed her true self to Spectra, Ember, and Kitty, she only got rid of Danny's shirt, yet when she uses the Fenton Peeler, she is wearing her own pants, not Danny's.

    • Jack: How are you and that Sam person doing? Ya know, the girl you like.

      This line suggests that Jack knows very little about Sam, however, in other episodes he seems to know more about her.

    • After Danny crashes into the sign at the beginning, his ghostly glow is missing.

    • When all the boys return to the city, Dash asks, "Uh... Why are all these women armed?" But why exactly were they armed? They were seen walking down a street armed, then at a concert with no weapons.

    • In the beginning of the episode when the three female ghosts are in the Ghost Zone, Spectra is in her black cloud form, but when they reach Amity Park she is in her red business suit.

    • How does Sam know about Kitty's spell and also how long they have left before it becomes permanent, when Kitty only told Ember and Spectra?

    • How could Dash and Kwan remember Ember if the spell wore of them in Fanning the Flames, and they forgot all about her?

    • After Kitty and Penelope say "Give me a No, Give me a Men", Ember say what does that spell but Kitty and Penelope weren't spelling anything, just saying words.

    • When dressing as a boy Sam had to be more careful because she still had her bracelet and lipstick on. Her shirt also must have been very tight because her upper portion still looked feminine.

    • Look Hard: On the title screen, you can vaguely see Valerie, Star and Paulina in the background.

  • QUOTES (28)

    • Jack: (pulls some nasty-looking pancakes out of a pocket in his overalls) I think I'll bring along the rest of my famous Fenton Flapjacks! Anybody want some?
      Jazz: (disgusted) No thanks.
      Sam: (disgusted) Already ate.
      Tucker: (while hiding behind Sam) Uh, allergies.
      (Jack happily wolfs down the pancakes)

    • Maddie: Welcome home guys, did you catch anything?
      Jack: Only a sea monster the size of Cleveland!
      Maddie: Well your gutting and cooking that.

    • Jack: Ah, good old Lake Eerie. With two E's! So what do you think Danny?
      Danny: Creepy, also with two E's.

    • Jack: So while we're waiting for the fish to bite what do you say we um reads (Father/Son Relationships for Stupids) do a little Father/Son bonding, spend some quality time getting to know each other better.
      Danny: Are you reading that out of a book?
      Jack: Heck no! Now tell me what's new with you. How's that uh, you and Monkey! Remember that time with the... and all the... all you can eat platter, thing. Hey! How are you and that Sam person doing?
      Danny: What?
      Jack: You know uh, the gloomy girl you like uh, like.
      Danny: She uh, I don't know if I exactly like uh, well maybe, I... (Danny sees his ghost sense) Well, never thought I'd be so happy to see a...(He sees Skulker floating above the boat) scratch that. Okay, I'm going- (Danny sees Jack staring at him) going to need better bait!
      Jack: I hear that! Where are all the fish anyway? I mean this lake is like a ghost town.

    • Jack: (Referring to the fish) Hmm, I don't think they're biting anymore.
      Danny: Anymore?

    • (After Danny beats Skulker, all the water falls to the lake, and hits the boat with Danny and Jack in it)
      Jack:(Wakes up and coughs)What the...?
      Danny:(Whistles, looks at Jack and points up) Rain storm.
      Jack: (Looks up at the sky and sees the sun shining and birds chirping) Man! Nothing knocks me out faster than processed cheese spray.

    • Ember: (Echos) Hey girls! It's girls' night out! Whoo! (music plays) Come on girls! Let's do this! Whoo! Alright! Come on!
      (Sings) Hey girls, we're a lot of fun.
      Backup Singers: Do-wop-wop!
      Ember: We'll show all of you little schoolboys how it's done.
      Backup Singers: Do-wop-wop!
      Ember: We got the looks that you're all after,
      we got the moves that will make you cry.
      Backup Singers: Make you cry.
      Ember: If there's a chance of causing laughter,
      you want a kiss, baby, don't even try.
      Backup Singer 1: Try...
      Backup Singer 2: Try...
      Jazz: (Off-key) La-la-la-la! (Crowd boos and throws trash at Jazz) You're all just jealous!

    • (After Jack drops a fish that he found in his shirt)
      Jack:(To Danny) Repeat after me.(Has his hands five feet apart) It was this big!

    • (Danny is fighting Skulker)
      Danny: Hey ugly, you're scaring the fish!
      Skulker: I don't fish, I hunt!

    • Danny:(After seeing Skulker's sea monster) New pet, or is this the girlfriend I've been hearing so much about?
      Skulker: You'd be surprised about the creatures I find when I hunt.

    • Dash: (After his recreation) Uhh, why are all these women armed?

    • Danny: (About Johny's shadow) ...And take the dork of darkness with you.

    • Sam: I bet every woman in town is under Ember's musical mind control.
      Jazz: Hmmm...those ghosts are up to something.
      Sam: No kidding. What was your first clue? When all the men vanished?
      Jazz: Go ahead and hide behind that layer of unappealing sarcasm. This Ghost Getter is taking action.
      Sam: What are you gonna do? Think of really lame name for the ghosts too?

    • Kwan:(Sees Ember) Ember McLain? I'm your biggest fan!
      Dash: No, I am! I love that one song where you're singing and the guitar's playing really loud...
      Kwan: Why don't you go back to listening to boy bands?
      Dash: You promised you'd never tell anyone!
      (They begin fighting)
      Spectra: It's unanimous, men are useless in this world too.

    • Jazz: Don't worry, I told Danny that if anything ghostly happens we three will handle it.
      Sam: Actually us two will handle it like we always do.
      Jazz: You just can't accept that I'm part of your ghost fighting team now.
      Sam: Who decided that?
      Jazz: I rest my case.
      Danny: Come, on. I need to know you guys will get along.
      Sam: Don't look at me, I'm already on the team.

    • Sam: (About dressing like a man) This whole day is gonna require years of therapy.

    • Kitty: So the minute we have a fight you come here and flirt with some meaningless human girl?
      Johnny 13: Aw, come on, babe! You... you know you're the only meaningless girl for me!
      (Kitty growls)
      Johnny 13: Wait, uh, that didn't come out right...

    • Kitty: Lemme get this straight. Johnny and Skulker just took off for Amity Park to blow off steam because Ember and me had a fight with them?
      Bertrand: What do you expect?! You told Johnny his bike wasn't as important as you were. And (turns to Ember) you told Skulker he was a lousy hunter.
      Ember: He is! He can't even find the TV remote!

    • Jack: Rain?! Better cover the nachos!

    • Maddie: Hi, hon. Did you catch anything?
      (Jack rides in on Skulker's sea monster)
      Jack: Only a sea monster the size of Cleveland!
      Maddie: Well, you're cleaning and gutting that...

    • Kitty: Ooh, this makes me so mad! (Blows a kiss at Bertrand, who disappears)
      Ember What was that?
      Kitty: What? You think you're the only one who can drive men away?
      Ember: Funny. So where'd he go?
      Kitty: I don't exactly know.
      Spectra: And I don't exactly care.
      Kitty: All I do know is that if he stays gone for twelve hours, he's gone for good. Unless, I do this. (blows another kiss; Bertrand reappears)
      Spectra: Darn! We still had eleven hours and fifty-nine minutes!
      Bertrand: (dazed) Ooh, is there a twelve-hour sale somewhere?

    • Sam: (pretending to be a boy) Gee, I'd love to stay and watch you ladies destroy yourselves in bickering, but I've, uh, got to get to a, uh, burp-off, or...something.

    • Sam: (pretending to be a boy) Hey, ladies, lookin' good! Anyone care to join a handsome guy like me in a masculine game of catch? Or, uh...sweating?

    • Jazz: One of us is going to have to dress up like a boy.
      (Maddie and Jazz look at Sam)
      Sam: Oh, come on! This is because I wear boots, right?

    • Jack: Good old Lake Eerie, with two "e"'s! So what do you think Danny?
      Danny: Creepy. Also with two "e"'s!

    • Jack: Hey, how are you and that Sam person doing?
      Danny: (Gasps and looks up) What?!?
      Jack: Y'know, uh...the gloomy girl you like...uh, like...?
      Danny: She...uh...I-I don't know if I exactly like...uh...well...maybe I....
      (Danny's ghost sense goes off)
      Danny: (Chuckling nervously) Phew...never thought I'd be so happy to see a....
      (Danny notices that it's Skullker giving him a malevolent smirk)
      Danny: Uh, scratch that!

    • Jonny 13: Relax kid, relax. Jus' blowing off some steam. Me and Kitty had a spat. What do you do when you and the gloomy chick have a lovers quarrel?
      Danny: What?! We never, I-I mean, we aren't- Look Jonny, you can either go back to the Ghost Zone, or I can make you.

    • Danny: What do you want, Skulker?
      Skulker: My girlfriend says I'm a lousy hunter. But hanging your pelt on my wall would change her mind.
      Danny: Wow.
      Skulker: Frightened now?
      Danny: No, I cant believe you have a girlfriend.
      Skulker: Now that just plain hurts...
      Danny: Not as much as this!
      (He kicks Skulker's weapon off)

  • NOTES (27)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Kitty's kiss
      Kitty's kiss could be a parody of Sailor Venus's super attack in Sailor Moon, named "Venus Love and Beauty Shock", in which she blows a kiss and fires it at the enemy.

    • Title: Girls' Night Out
      Girls' Night Out is also the name of a Korean movie and an album by the band, Toronto.

    • Lake Eerie: Name
      Lake Eerie,where Jack and Danny go fishing is an obvious parody of one of the Great Lakes: Lake Erie.
