Episode Summary

EDIT
Take Me out of the Ballgame
AIRED:
Joel is faced with re-living one of the most embarrassing moments of his life: when he made his baseball team lose the game after missing 3 balls. He tries his best to avoid playing at the game, but his efforts are useless. He will have to see his dad yell at him, his mother run away with shame, his sister call him a dork, Holly Kent laugh at him and worse: this time his grandpa, Isabelle (who's having a bad hair week thanks to a bad perm) and TV are there. Joel misses the balls, but instead of running home like before he stays and faces everybody. Turns out his dad was yelling at someone else, his mother just went to pick up sodas from the car, Holly Kent was laughing at some dogs and his sister was really calling him a dork. Facing his failure isn't so bad after all, especially when you discover you were the one who gave Greg Maddux confidence to carry on with his future brilliant baseball career. Pat, on the other hand, isn't so lucky and has gets his wrist broken like before.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Goof: Just before Joel bats, he is talking to Pat about being humiliated in front of everyone. But when the camera pans across the bleachers, Pat can clearly be seen sitting next to Isabelle.

      • The show's new opening titles suggest that Joel went from the year 2002 to 1980 despite the fact that the first episode said he went back to 1981. Even the previews for the show have been changed so that the coach says "It's 1980" instead of "It's 1981." Considering how far back in time they're going it makes the use of '80s music even more off.

      • How could Pat have broken his wrist in the original past if Joel's grandpa wasn't there (since he broke it while helping Joel's grandpa get up from the seat)?

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Adult Joel: Wait a second. I'm thirty-four years old. I'm an adult. I'm not going to run home like a kid. Plus, there's a TV camera.

      • Joel: Isabelle calm down. I have a little saying I made up. Hakuna Matata, it means no worries.
        Isabelle: I've never heard of it. What language is that?
        Joel: I believe it's some kind of cartoon jungle language.

      • Joel: Hey, there's no pain in my knee or my back. I'm young again! I'm a gazelle!

    • NOTES (1)

      • Music

        Flock of Seagulls: "I Ran"
        Hall & Oates: "She's a Maneater"
        The Fixx: "One Thing Leads to Another"
        The Fabulous Thunderbirds: "Tuff Enuff"

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The Lion King

        Joel made a reference to the 1994 children's animated movie The Lion King featuring voices such as Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Matthew Broderick, James Earl Jones, and Whoopi Goldberg
