    Okay so let me start off with the things I didn't like. The whole "I want to remember the look on your face" thing just didn't belong on this show. Especially hearing it from Sister Helen, was incredibly cliche and just so not what I watch Grounded for Life for. The undercover teacher thing was also pretty unrealistic, so I didn't love those things.



    A nun cursing? Now that's pretty funny. I did enjoy this very original and somewhat controversial story line. It definitely brought some funny antics to the table, especially Lilly joining the Science-nauts. I loved the scene in which she revealed the time to the Science-nauts.



    I also enjoyed Claudia's attitude toward the Parents Committee and I think everyone cheered for joy when Sister Helen took the other mother's privileges away. The closeout scene was the best for me. A bunch of grown adults trying to mess with the school announcement board. Hilarious episode overall.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Sister Helen said that girls have never been sciencenauts. However, during the flashback sequence, there's a few girls in the background.

    • Jimmy rearranged the saying 'A STRANGER IS JUST A FRIEND YOU HAVEN'T MET YET' to say 'YOU JUST ANGERED A HEFTY TRANVESTITE MAN.' Although you can make the 2nd phrase from all the letters in the first one, it is not a perfect anagram. There is an extra 'R' and 'I' from the original sentence that is not used to create the 2nd sentence. Jimmy gave the extra R to a girl, but the extra I was never mentioned.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Sean: I was able to get Jimmy off detention, Henry the lead in the school play, and for my lovely wife, the head of the parenting committee.
      Walt: All by driving a nun to profanity.
      Sean: That's right.
      Walt: By being a jackass!
      Sean: Exac... hey! I never took some sort of anti-jackass oath. But unfortunately for the holy sister, she did.
