    Season two is probably my favorite season, and this is a good example of why. I like the plot of Oliver handcuffing Miley and Lilly together, because it helps their friendship. Jackson's subplot was good too because he realizes he needs to start listening to what his father is telling him to do, and then do it. Overall this is a great episode of the show, and a great episode to my favorite season of the show, everything i liked, the humor, the plots, everything, and because of this the episode gets an A+ from me. Very well done episodemoreless
  • Miley and Lilly gets into a fight, and Oliver tries to solve it by cuffing them together. When Oliver loses the keys, things get out of control. It gets even worse when Hannah has to be on live televison.moreless

    I think that this episode is very revealing and very different from all the other episodes. It shows the true friendship between Miley and Lilly. I never get tired of watching it, and it makes friendship very important. It truly shows the true meaning of frindship how also how it can be broken. Also, it reveals how different Miley and Lilly's personalities really are. This episode is filled with laughter, cry, and even some anger. I enjoyed watching this episode because its real and original. Its an episode you will not get tired of watching and its one of my personal favorites.moreless
  • Better the first time...

    This episode was really great the first time I watched it but it isn't that good now. It did have a nice plot, though. The jokes were funny the first time, but now they seem just corny. I also didn't like the moral. It was kind of stupid and obvious. Some of the things the characters said were dumb, too. However, I did still like a few things, such as plot, which was probably the only thung that didn't seem stupid the second time, though. This episode was above average but not even close to perfect. But it is probably my favorite episode and the reason why I watch the show.moreless
  • This is one of my favorite episodes.

    Miley and Lilly are fighting because Lilly didn't pick Miley to be on her team for flag football in gym. Oliver thinks he solved the problem when he handcuffs them together, but then he loses the key. When Miley tells Lilly that she won a Booty, Lilly tells her good because she could use one. Hannah introduces "True Friend" as a touchy little song about a two faced backstabber. Then she chooses a plant instead of Lilly to ride in the limo with her. Oliver is trying to stay friends with both of them, but they keep fighting. Then they finally work things out in the end.moreless
  • Lily and Miley have a fight and Oliver puts handcuffs on them, losing the key and getting them into alot of serious trouble when he loses the key. Hannah Montana has to go on television on a live satellite feed so they have to get Lola off of her.moreless

    The fight was a smidge over done, I feel they picked on Oliver a tad too much as well, other than that it was a really great episode with a cleverly written script and picture perfect acting. The handcuffs were a little fake I guess, there are tons of 'We're Stuck Together' episodes in all sitcoms on television now a days, but this was one of the few high quality ones, Lizzie McGuire's was a well done one as well. The booty jokes were so so so so so so so so so so so so so funny, but a bit overdone as well. This was a great episode though, 9.1 to Cuffs Will Keep Us Together!moreless

  • TRIVIA (12)

      Robbie: Well, you normally don't introduce "True Friend" as a touching little song about a two-faced backstabber.
