Episode Summary

Sammy Jacobs is into ghosts and science fiction. Not exactly the smartest hobby--at least not if you ask Sammy's parents. They're research scientists and they only believe in real science. But now Sammy's met someone who's totally unreal. He's hanging out in Sammy's room and eating his cereal at breakfast. Sammy's got to find a way to get rid of his new "friend". The only problem is Sammy's new "friend" is invisible!moreless

  • After Brent was so nice earlier, the aliens killed him at the end! But those aliens deserved to die, not Brent!

    Here is my review of My Best Friend is Invisible. I give it a 7 out of 10. I didn't like it too much. I wish it could be more like the book! It was hardly near the book. No brother, no cat, and he is not a REAL monster like in the book. At least the parents were still scientistsI thought the ending was poor. The acting was pretty good though. If it was more detailed, I would give it a 9 out of 10. I liked Brent's story though. It was better and should have been in the books.moreless

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Sam: Wo, I never knew hedges could get this big.
      Roxanne: Why do you think they call it Hedge House?
      Sam: Look, there're probably no ghosts in there anyway, so...what's the point of going in?
      Roxanne: The legend says there is a ghost, and we are going in.
      Sam: Uhh.
      Roxanne: Come on.

    • Sam: (Referring to Hedge House) I am never, never going back into that house again.
      Roxanne: Then you shouldn't have teamed up with me for this term project.
      Sam: I was the one who wanted to do it on photosynthesis. Remember?
      Roxanne: Well, you're stuck with it now.

    • Brent: You know, Sam, it might be kind of cool to hang out with you for a while. It was dead around Hedge House. Not bad, dead.

    • Sam: I'm telling ya. The ghost of Hedge House followed me here.
      Roxanne: Nice try, Sam. I can't believe how far you'll go to think of going back there.
      Sam: We don't need to go back there. He's right here.

    • Sam: (To Brent) You're not my friend!
      Brent: What are you saying, Sam?
      Sam: I'm saying you're not my friend! You're my worst nightmare! I want you out of my house and out of my life!
      Brent: You're exactly right, Sam. I'm not your friend. I've never been your friend. I'm your worst nightmare.

    • Sam: (Hesitantly) Roxy, say hello to Brent.
      Roxanne: Hello, and goodbye. (She runs off screaming.)
      Sam: (Hesitantly) I think I'll be going too, now.

    • Mrs. Jacobs: Sam, what's going on?
      Mr. Jacobs: What are you doing?
      Sam: It's in the house! The ghost is in the house!
