  • Manny goes on her first date with Craig. Ellie has a crush on Marco.

    "Take My Breath Away" is just an entertaining Degrassi episode to watch. It really highlights the humour in this show. I love how Manny how the courage to ask out Craig. Even more, I love how Manny and Craig both have a very different experience on their death. I love how Manny thinks she went on the perfect date with Craig. I love how Craig reveals that the date was just horrible and that Manny acted childish on their date. I love Ellie's subplot with having a crush on Marco. I love how she sent him anonymous letters, but he thinks their from Hazel. Marco is just the stud muffin in this episode. I give this episode an 8.5/10.moreless
  • Craig and Manny. EW!

    I do not like the Craig/Manny relationship and never have. This epsiode was a waste, but the sub plot about Ellie and Marco was good. I do not like Craig. He was cool in season 2, but after that, he sucks. I do like Manny and am glad she is currently not and probably never will date Craig again. Craig and Manny look like brother and sister! GROSS! I do like Ellie. I think she is very pretty and so innocent in this season. Her and Marco are good friends and she has always been there for him in his time of need.moreless
  • Manny and Craig- The Saga.

    We get our first glimpse that Manny wouldn't be letting Craig go anytime soon. Even after a disastrous date, which included a rejected kiss and Craig wanting nothing to do with her, she'll still end up with him by using persistence. They make good use of flashbacks, as Craig and Manny each tell about the previous night differently, with Manny's being more romantic, and Craig's sounding like a train wreck. This episode also shows the developing comedy of Jimmy and Spinner in season 2 after Craig retells his side of the story, saying Manny reminding him of his own little sister as the reason he could not kiss her. This episode is an overall good episode.moreless
  • Love this episode.

    Manny has a huge crush on Craig and she even has the nerve to ask him out and to her surprise he says yes! But at school the following Monday, it's a he said she said tale of what happened on the date. Saying that Mandy reminds him of his 5 year old half sister. Meanwhile Ellie has been crushing on Marco and has been sending him anonymous letters, but things get complicated when Hazel tries to go after him. But later Marco chooses to go with Ellie instead of Hazel. Then Craig breaksup with Mandy at the end of the episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Dan Woods (Mr. Raditch), is credited in the end credits but does not appear at all. Last episode, he was also credited, but his voice was at least heard. In this episode not only did he not appear, but his voice was not heard either.

    • Craig said he couldn't kiss Manny because she reminds him of his half-sister, Angela. The irony of that is the actresses that play Manny (Cassie Steele) and Angela (Alex Steele) are sisters in real life.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Manny: Do you want to go to the movies?
      Craig: Oh you mean with you? I dont know...just kidding!
      Manny: You so had me there.

    • Craig: It's not the locker that I don't like; it's you.

    • Craig: Do you want to know the real reason why I couldn't kiss her?
      Jimmy: What?
      Craig: She reminds me of my five-year-old half-sister!

    • Hazel: What do you think of Marco?
      Paige: He's cute.
      Hazel: I think he's really cute.
      Paige: Which raises the question: cute, smart and still single?
      Hazel: Not for long, Hazel's on the case. I think I need "help" with my math homework.
