  • I loved it!

    9.3
    I loved this episode it was really good, good jokes, good references to great leaders like Martin Luther King and Chris becomes class president but first, Chris knows the only way to win the election is by giving the best speech ever but when his speech is stolen by Caruso, he knows he has to do something drastic. So he makes up a pretty impressive speech that wins over the crowd and it is always fun to see Caruso's sad, defeated face. Meanwhile, Rochelle rents the upstairs apartment to Mr. Omar, the local funeral director who is much trouble than he is worth. Drew finds and spends the ten dollars that Rochelle lost on a wallet to keep ten dollars in. But he doesn't realise he just spent ten dollars on the wallet.moreless
  • GREAT!

    Great episode. Lots of laughs. Loved the mortuary dude and all of his \\\"friends\\\"! Felt sorry for Julius, though. Hope he gets his blood pressure down! Thought it was great to have a kid in the wheelchair, too! It was sooo funny when he pulled that tube thing out and used it to shoot a spitball at Chris! The wheelchair kid is mondo-cute and a great addition to the cast. Will he be on another episode this season?? My friends & I hope so! Grape today, Grape tomorrow, and Grape forever! What a crack up!! So, what\\\'s going to happen to Drew for spending the $10???moreless

    • Caruso: Man should be judged not by the color of his skin, but by the content of his character.

      When Martin Luther King delivered his famous "I Have A Dream" speech at the March on Washington, he said that he wanted his four children to grow up in a country where they would be "judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."

    • Caruso: Upside your head!
      (Caruso smacks Chris in the head)
      Chris Rock (narrating): The next politician to use that phrase was Jesse "The Body" Ventura.

      Jesse Ventura is a former professional wrestler who later went into politics and served one term as the governor of Minnesota.

    • Caruso: Grape today, grape tomorrow, grape forever.

      This phrase is repeated regarding ramps and detention. It is a reference to former Alabama Governor George Wallace (1919-1998) and his 1962 inaugural speech in which he said, "Segregation today, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever." His speechwriter at the time was a Klansman. Wallace later recanted his racist ideas but he is still widely remembered for them.

    • Caruso: Keep hope alive!

      This is a reference to Jesse Jackson's address to the 1988 Democratic National Convention. Jesse Jackson repeats those same three words at the end of his speech.
