    What I liked- Drake telling the old lady he just made a date to fight his girlfriend, and the old lady laughing crazily, Josh meeting Mindy's Parents, the ending where they fight to prove which gender is tougher, Megan selling tickets to Drake's fight with his girlfriend, Josh wearing his underpants on the outside of his pants, amongst other things in this episode.

    Pretty good. Lots of funny parts, and I liked the introduction of Mindy's parents. Shame we do not see them again, I thought they had some funny lines. Overall a really good episode, and as such for my final grade I am going to give it an A+moreless
  • Favorite episode of Season 3...

    Since Mindy is my favorite character, this episode is so awesome, I love the extents that Josh has to go through all of his obstacles to impress Mindy's parents, I also like how he fixes the bulb & the chandelier falls on the table, another funny moment is when he gives the parents the gifts & they're unacceptable, This is my favorite girlfriend of Drake's, the actress is amazing. Another reason why I like this episode. Then with the B plot them fighting, & it merges with the A plot, I like how Josh yells at Drake, then the parents finally accept Josh, an amazing episode.moreless
  • drake considers breaking up with his girlfriend after she proves tougher than him and there is only one way to figure this out..have a contest to see who is tougher..josh meets mindy's parentsmoreless

    i feel so empowered after watching this ep all the time and it makes me laugh from the beginning..guys..they think they have the power in the relationship but please..the girl manipulates everything to their way and just make the guy seem like he has the power..i love it..and their response on the phone is so typical..the guy always caves first..haha..girl power is right..and i totally agree w/ lucy..girls are in the army, navy, and very powerful..so girls are tougher than guys..so i am always empowered after this ep and hate men's chauvanistic way..their fight was so hilarious and lucy was so winning..and josh's dinner w/ mindy's parents was funny and so disastrous at the same time..love this epmoreless
  • This episode of Drake and Josh was about Drake dating a girl who could beat up guys and Drake was uncomfy with that. Josh was trying to impress his girl friend Mindy's parents. At the end Josh impresses Mindy's parents enough so they can still go out.moreless

    This was one of the Drake and Josh episodes I actually like. The reason why I like the episode was because of Lucy. Lucy in this episodes plays the part as Drake's girl friend. Drake things Lucy is goodlooking and great to date until he realzies she can beat up guys. I liked this episode because I love watching cute girls beat the crap out of guys, and during this episode Lucy beat up football palyers and I thought that was awesome. The part of the show that was boring was when Josh was trying to impress Mindy's parents, the whole episode your screaming at the televisiion just show Lucy beating up guys. So I rate this episode a 7.5 since I loved the Lucy parts.moreless
