  • Perfect

    miley fears having surgery done on her throat because she fears she may not be able to be hannah montana anymore. a dream of her mother happens and she changes her mind.

    it was great, the dream in the episode is one of my favorite scenes for emotion, and the overall episode was very well done, and although it was not the funniest of the series, it was pretty good and i really wanted to just see what would happen, my overall grade for this great episode is an A+, just perfect in every way. A really great episode i thinkmoreless
  • Miley looses her voice reoccuringly and needs surgery.

    Yay? Who really cares if she looses her voice. Many hollywood celebrities do because they can't shut their mouths for 10 seconds. ;D This episode is filled with a bunch of bad montages and dreams. I didn't like the fact that the effects departments didn't put anything around the screen for the dreams, because it made it hard to tell what was reality or just someone's dozing imagination. Overall, it was pretty much just a filler for the 30 minutes or so that Hannah Montana goes on the air.moreless
  • Now, I may not like this show much, but this is one of the really good episodes!

    Wow, this one was actually very good! Hannah us performing live, and the next day she finds her voice is all croaky, and she can't sing properly. A doctor sees to it, and says he cannot sing. Miley has to go one whole week (I think) without talking, and she finds herself fully cured afterwards. I THINK it's before this happens: Miley is visited by her mother in a dream, where Miley is treated sort of like Cinderella, and her mother calms her down, and says everything will be fine. It's something roughly like that. You can't blame me for not getting it exactly right. I haven't seen it in about 10/11 months or so. Overall, I'll give this episode a:

    Grade B


    Good episode. Really was.moreless
  • Lessons on how to make a good dream sequence (minor spoilers)

    I am just gonna say that this is a lovely episode of Hannah Montana. As everybody knows she losses her voice and she is very worried about this (the situation is more complicated than everybody believes at the begging and that was a very good plot element); and thanks to a lot of sugar she has a dream about her mother. This dream is fantastic. Brooke Shields make a very good casting as her mother, and you can see a lot of Miley's not-so-high self-esteem and a lot of her insecurities. That was cool, because you can see how this aspects of her personality have affected her relationships (with Lilly, for example) in the past, so I think the way she looks at her friends and family in her dream is coherent with the way sometimes she looks at them when she is wake. It is a wild ride through Miley's mind and I enjoy that a lot.

    Finally, I find kind of sad the dream: clearly every member of the Stwart family misses their mother and wife a lot, but it is also pleasent to realise that they never forget her.

    So, overall, a great episode.moreless
  • Hannah can't sing anymore!

    In this episode, Miley looses her voice after a singing concert and she soon learns she has to get surgery. I would like to say I really enjoyed this episode. Like, when it started and Jackson and his Dad were singing. Also, Miley's voice was hillarious too. I also liked it when Oliver was flirting with the guy for Miley. That was hillarious. And when Miley wrote down something rude on the board, that was so funny. I also laughed when Jackson was dancing with the table. I laughed when the doctor was telling Miley she was going to need surgery and she was freaking out. And when Jackson was telling Miley the worst thing that could happen, that was funny too. The dream, though, was the best part. In conclusion, I loved this episode.moreless

  • TRIVIA (8)

    • Goof: Miley begins writing her answer to Dex's question, when Oliver stops her saying he would take care of it. Miley proceeds to put the cap on the marker, but in the next scene the cap is off of the marker again.

    • Goof: In Miley's dream, her mother comments that the reason Miley is having such a wacky dream is because her father gave her "that hot chocolate of his again." This would make more sense if Miley actually drank the hot chocolate before going to sleep, but in the previous scene with her and her dad, she didn't even take one sip, so that had absolutely no impact on her dream.

    • When Miley is worried about something going wrong with her surgery, her father brings hot chocolate to her room to cheer her up. In real life, Miley says her dad does the exact same thing anytime she is sick or feeling sad.

    • When Jackson and Robbie sing a food version of "I Got Nerve" and Jackson says that they are out of grape jelly, you can see the grape jelly container on the counter top. The jelly is practically full.

    • Jackson and Robbie sing a food version of "I Got Nerve".

    • Goof: When Lilly and Miley were sitting at the table, Miley did not have the marker in her hand, but in the next scence she is holding it, then it disappears again.

    • Mr. Corelli is now a teacher at Seaview High.

    • This episode featured the Hannah Montana songs "Life's What You Make It," "I Got Nerve," and Miley and her mother (Brooke Shields) singing a duet of "You And Me Together."

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Miley: Daddy, what if something goes wrong with the surgery, and I can't be Hannah Montana anymore?
      Robbie: Well, I guess you'll have to pack your things and get out! (Pauses) Darlin', that's not gonna happen.
      Miley: How do you know?
      Robbie: 'Cause there's some things a daddy just knows. Like, I know the sun's gonna come up tomorrow. I know Uncle Earl's never gonna be an underwear model, and I know your voice is gonna be just fine.

    • Miley's Mom: (Looking at the table with legs) Look at that thing. I swear, there is nothin' more dangerous than your father with a pocket full of cash at one of Uncle Earl's garage sales.

    • Oliver: Wow, a week without talking. You know, that's gotta be tough for a girl. Now guys, we're different. I don't need to talk. I could not talk for a month and it wouldn't bother me at all. But girls? Talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, "Hey, Sally, nice capris." "Oh, I love your purse." (Reads what Miley wrote on the whiteboard) Oh, now that's just rude.

      Mom: Now, Robbie Ray, haven't I always told you---
      Robbie: (Frantically) Miley, WAKEY WAKEY!

    • Lilly: I like your mom. She's funny.
      Oliver: She's pretty, too!
      Miley: That's it, you're outta here! (Oliver starts getting pulled out the door)
      Oliver: Hey! Why am I leaving?! I don't wanna go! Stop! This is not fair!!

    • Robbie: Mile, I fixed you up some of my loco hot cocoa, with little marshmallows so you don't choko! Choko! Choko! (Miley rolls her eyes) I'm gonna keep saying it till you laugh. Choko!

    • Mr. Corelli: "Four score and seven years ago..." is the beginning to what famous speech? (Oliver slides down in his seat) Keep sliding Oken, I can still see you! Miley! Make me smiley!

    • Jackson: Hannah Montana has never cancelled a concert before and she's not about to start now. I know that would just break your heart...and when your heart breaks baby sis so does mine!
      (Miley writes on a dry erase board)
      Robbie: (Reading what Miley wrote) You got a hot date for the concert don't ya Jerk-son?
      Jackson: Dad!?!
      Robbie: She wrote it!

    • Miley: Daddy, there was a one in a million chance that you'd be a rock star and that happened. There was a one in a million chance that I'd be a pop star and that happened. Face it, this family's one in a million central!

    • Mom: (From inside the house) Baby girl, you always did have the strangest dreams.

    • Mom: (To Miley) Your daddy's been feedin' ya his loco hot cocoa before bed again, hasn't he?

    • (Singing to the tune of Hannah Montana's "I Got Nerve")
      Jackson: You want some toast, I bet you do.
