Episode Summary

Dr. Abbott suspects that Linda and Andy like each other more than they should, so he decides to set his sister up with more appropriate suitors. Meanwhile, Ephram finally has the courage to tell Amy how he really feels about their relationship, but he is confused by his feelings for Madison, who comes to the rescue when Ephram needs help to pass his driving test. Meanwhile, Andy tries to help the soon-to-be-remarried Reverend Keyes (guest-star Tim DeKay) cope with his impending blindness, but the minister would rather leave his fate to God than attempt a new treatment that might save his sight.moreless

  • The Perfect Everwood Episode

    This is why I love this show. It is just, as perfect as can be. I don't believe in giving 10.0 as a rating, every show and episode could be improved on. But...

    This is as close as it can get, it is the reason I love this show. It is the perfect blend of comedy, drama and every other emotion. Rewatching this episode just, just, gives you the sense that you are part of something special, part of something that the idiots who watch "One Tree Hill" will never understand. Good TV, no, great TV.

    Watch it, and wish that you did when it was on, and kick yourself for getting it canceled for me.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Andy thanks Nina for her help doing Delia's hair for the wedding. However, Delia is wearing her hair loose as per usual.

    • Reverend Keyes is supposed to have lost his sight almost totally as the fact that he can't tell how many fingers Dr. Brown is displaying proves; however, and right before the wedding ceremony, he can look directly to Dr. Brown's eyes as he speaks to him.

    • When Amy and Ephram are dancing, Amy's head jumps back-and-forth between Ephram's left and right shoulders as the camera angle changes.

  • QUOTES (31)

    • Ephram: For an apology, that sounded an awful lot like a breakup.
      Amy: I'm sorry I wasted your time and it would kill me to think I wasted any more of it. I want you to promise me something.
      Ephram: Amy.
      Amy: Promise me that you won't let me and you get in the way of you and somebody else.
      Ephram: (after a long pause) I promise.

    • Amy: You were right Ephram, about everything. I have taken you for granted. But hey, you're a better person than I am. Everybody else sees it, I don't know why you don't. As if you didn't know this already, I'm kinda a giant mess right now. I have been ever since you've known me. I might have been more normal in Junior High, I don't know. The point is, you deserve someone great, Ephram, amazing even. Someone a little less like me and a little more like you.

    • Reverend Keyes: God isn't meant to be understood intellectually. Sometimes he's absent on purpose. He wants us to doubt, it makes us stronger. It opens other doors. And as for tragedy, I'm not dieing you know. I've experienced more with my senses in these past 18 months than I have in my entire life. I can feel Katherine. I can touch her. I can smell her and I can hear every tiny wonderful sound she makes and I love her just the same. Maybe more.

    • Bright: Guy's have pride. And he's not gonna sit around playing mind-games with you forever. Soon he's gonna get tired of that, and he's gonna move on.

    • Bright: I don't know. Maybe he's like mad in love with you and he has been over the past year.

    • Amy: I've really missed this. You know, us.
      Ephram: I've really missed us too.

    • Ephram: You're first choice doesn't come through, so you come and find me, you're back-up plan.

    • Bright: Hangin' out with all your friends?
      Amy: Shouldn't you be at football practice? Oh wait, you're off the team.

    • Bright: (to Amy) As long as I don't have to hug you or anything.

    • Brittany: My turn.
      Delia: (dancing with Bright) Not yet.
      Brittany: Says who?
      Delia: Says him.

    • Ephram: You don't have to wait.
      Madison: What? And miss all the fun. You pass, I gloat. You fail, I tease.

    • Amy: I'm just not ready for all the boyfriend-girlfriend stuff and I know with Ephram there'd be no in between.
      Bright: Maybe not, but you could do a lot worse. People give me crap all the time for hanging out with Ephram. But I dunno, he's just like...
      Amy: Funny.
      Bright: Yea! The other day, he's telling me the story about how he's driving a stick for the first time right, and he's like stuck on a hill. Eckleman says: Well what gear were you in? and he says: My jeans and my t-shirt. (they laugh) I didn't even get it at first... and he's also gonna be pulling in some serious jack with his music one day... damn, maybe I should ask him out.

    • Amy: Well I went out with Ephram but it got kinda weird.
      Bright: You guys finally hooked up?
      Amy: What?! No. Why would you say something like that?
      Bright: I dunno. Maybe because he's mad in love with you and has been for over the past year.

    • Bright: (mockingly) Hanging out with all your friends?
      Amy: Shouldn't you be at football practice? Oh wait, no, you're off the team.
      Bright: Why don't you take your new care and drive it... away.

    • Ephram: Why do they have to make these things so hard to open. I mean, it's not like they're porn or any... I mean... ya know... not... nothing... not that I wou...

    • Harold: How can you be so dense people? Died on the cross to save us from our sins... middle initial H...
      Guest: Oh, oh... Jesus?
      Harold: Goodness, finally!

    • Ephram: Ya know, I don't know why they call it a driving test. All they really care about is parking.
      Madison: Well I wouldn't worry about it. Lots of guys ride their bikes to junior prom. Maybe your date can sit on the handlebars.

    • Madison: Ya know, growing up we used to spend our summers at this lake in Maryland. And there was a bluff maybe fifteen feet high and all the kids would jump except me because I was scared. Anyway, I'm up there and all I can think about is the rocks, and the cold water, and the slimy fish that bite, and all the sudden it just hit me that I'm thinking too much. And I just did it and my dad flipped and I got a new CD player and it was a really cool day.
      Ephram: Wow. Good share.

    • Madison: Wait, now before you go I want you to say to yourself: I own that bitch.
      Ephram: Now, now, by bitch, I assume you mean...
      Madison: Just say it.
      Ephram: (reserved) I own that bitch.
      Madison: Louder!
      Ephram: (shouting) I own that bitch!

    • Madison: (To Ephram) Hey Happy! You up for a little shrinky-dinking? Pretty fun stuff.

    • Harold: (To Rose) Could you see little Andy Brown's running around wearing all black? Uncle Harry, can I go to the rap concert with Ephram? We're like... hitchhiking.

    • Ephram: And for your information I did see that yield sign... I did... eventually.

    • Ephram: (To Madison) I'm from New York. I'm genetically programmed to be a crappy driver.

    • Ephram: (To Madison) I happen to be deceptively strong.

    • Ephram: (To Amy) I can't keep doing this... I can't keep being your second choice. Not when you're my first.

    • Rose: What if I had listened to my family?
      Harry: What do you mean!?

    • Bright: You gotta pass that test dog. I can't keep hauling you and your Schwinn around. I got an image.
      Ephram: Thanks for driving it home. I haven't had enough people point it out to me yet today. Dog.

    • Bright: It's so unfair.
      Rose: Oh Bright, don't spoil it. It's your sister's moment.
      Bright: Moment? Try life. She gets everything. If I say I want to go on drugs do I get a new truck?

    • Ephram: No license, no car. Just a sad little boy and his bike.

    • Ephram: (To Amy) I can't keep doing this....I can't keep being your second choice. Not when you're my first.

    • Bright: It's so unfair.
      Rose: Oh Bright, don't spoil it. It's your sister's moment.
      Bright: Moment? Try life. She gets everything. If I say I want to go on drugs do I get a new truck?

    • Ephram: Great! Another round with Nurse Ratched.
      Nurse Ratched was the strong-willed, evil nurse in the novel and movie One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. In the movie Louise Fletcher won an Oscar for playing Nurse Ratched, whose hair was fashioned to look like the horns of a devil.

    • Dr. Abbott: Well, forgive me if I don't want to be in the John Malkovich version of the Brady Bunch.
      In the 1999 movie Being John Malkovich, there is a part with clones of the person filling the room, a restaurant scene, I believe. It is horrifying in quite an unsettling way and the quote is certainly a reference to this.

      Preceding dialogue: Rose: You don't even know if Linda's interested.

      Dr. Abott: Think about it, Rose. There could be nephews, miniature little Andy Browns underfoot with pale skin and black clothes. (imitates kid's voice) Uncle Harry, can I go to the rap concert with Ephram? We're like, hitchhiking.
