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 think
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.
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:
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.
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.
Miley loses her voice one night during a concert. She goes a week without talking and just uses a whiteboard. I loved Oliver's line...
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. Miley finds out that she has to have throat surgery. She's scared that she may never be able to sing again. Miley has a dream about her mom. Her family and friends reassure her in her dream that she will be ok and they would still love her even if she wasn't Hannah Montana anymore.
I thought this was a great episode. To tell the truth, I don't think it's as sad as everyone says it was. Even though Miley's deceased mom steps in, I actually thought this episode was pretty funny, especially in the first segment when Lilly, Oliver and Jackson were saying stupid things to try and translate what she's trying to say or try to read what she wrote. (Betty Burg's Address. Lol!)
And I think Brooke Shields did a good job of playing Miley's mom. She's a talented actress. I also heard she was on That 70's Show as Jackie's mom.
I wish they could have mentioned how Miley's mom died (or at least her first name for that matter) but it was still a great episode. 10/10.
in this episode miley has singing problems , she losses her voice after a big concert.
miley tries to not talk for a whole week so she will b ready for her next concert which gets her in some very funny and embarassing situations thanks to her best friends lilly and oliver who talk for her. after a week miley can talk and sing again but this does not last long, during a concert miley losses her voice again , this time she see's a docor about her problem the doctor tells her that she will need surgery which freaks miley out.
miley then has a dream on what she belives her life would b like if she couldnt sing anymore, this includes lossing her friends and become the house slave and lossing the love of her father and brother. also during this dream we see miley's dead mother for the first time, her mother makes her see that her life would stil be good if she was not hannah montana and reasures her about the surgery
I am Hannah, Hear Me Croak had a good plot line and had some funny moments, but I was disappointed in one thing. The story line for this episode had great potential, but I do not think that the script was as good as it should have been. I think that everyone was in character, which was good. I also, think that most of the jokes were good, but I also think that some of the humour was not as good. I really liked the way Oliver acted in this episode, he was really funny when he was contridicting himself. If you don't get freaked out by surgery, which I do, then you may like this episode. I really think that the writers can do better.

Please help improve the article or discuss these issues on the talk page. In the fictional universe of the Harry Potter series of books by author JK Rowling, magic spells are used by many of the characters to achieve useful effects without the benefit of modern technology. The main depiction of a "spell" in the Harry Potter books consists of a gesture made with the character's wand, combined with a spoken or mental incantation. In the books and their associated film series, the majority of these incantations are derived from the Classical languages, particularly Latin. These named incantations are not grammatically correct in any language; most spoken phrases resemble Latin words of appropriate meaning, but are not exactly Latin themselves.
In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the concept of casting spells non-verbally is introduced. Prior to this, every spell cast by the principal characters had been accompanied by the appropriate incantation (although advanced adult practitioners of magic had been described casting non-verbal spells in previous books). Consequently, the incantations used for some spells introduced in Half-Blood Prince and its sequel Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows are not known canonically.
Spells are listed here by their incantation (when known), with their vernacular name in parentheses. Some spells have no known incantation – the only canonical reference is by an informal name, either because in its only appearance in the relevant book it was cast non-verbally, or because it was never depicted in the books, only talked about. The majority of spells cast in duels between adult characters in all seven books appear non-verbally; such spells can only be identified by their effects.

I am not enough of a HM fan to know if the mother has been introduced before. But you would think in a family without that parent, the loss of the wife and mom would result in some grief. You never see that grief. But then again, this is TV. In the dream sequence, the mom waltzes in and starts interacting with Miley and there is no sense of surprise or mention of how she died or why she isn't around. That too, seems a bit casual for a young girl who has lost her mom to death.
I did like Brooke Shields in this role. She fit nicely with the cast and it almost made me wish they could play around with the plot and put the mother back in this family. It would be more interesting and give some new dynamics to all of the relationships. Overall, I didn't feel the comedy was very strong. If it was supposed to be sweet and tear jerky, then it should have been more soulful. There were a lot of fond glances at the dad, the dream mom, etc. but it was not genuine family affection, which is amazing since Miley and Billy are actually family. The warmth between Miley and Jackson seemed forced and phony and out of thin air.
So while I am not as brutal about this episode as fumbledoof, I think this was a missed opportunity to film a pretty great episode. Instead they filmed one that was adequate at best.
I loved this episode! It really shows how talented Miley Cyrus is and can actually sing! I think it was good that we got to see her mum. I thought this episode was hilarious. Especially in some parts. Eg. When she is singing lifes what you make it and her voice cracks, when she is singing it with her dad, Lily and Oliver and having fun and at the end Oliver makes a high pitxhed funny sound and Jackson is dancing with the pair of legs and says "Oh Jenny isnt the concert wonderful, Oh you bad girl" haha so funny!, and also when her dad gives her Loco Hot Coco and says "so you dont chokeo..chokeo..chokeooo! Hilarious, when she is having the dream and she tries to sing This is the life but cant and when Jackson is Bucky Kentucky! Last of all at then end when Robbie Ray is drinking hot chocolate and has cream on his top lip. This episode was Absoloutly amazing and super hilarious. Jackson just keeps on getting better and better!
I liked how Miley finally realized that her friends and family will always love her....I just think it was a little weird that she dreamt about her mom out of nowhere. I thought it was funny how that loud wacky table of theirs finally got made fun of by Miley's mom though...I hate that table! It was also funny how Miley had to use that marker board to communicate with others...they did a good job making that funny! This one is a "filler" episode in my book, but if nothing else is on, I'll probably watch it again.
Well, the first part of the episode was meant for humor. Miley couldn't speak so she had to write what she wanted to say on a whiteboard. Lily and Oliver had to interperet what she wanted to say and ultimately messed up, giving her bad grades and missed dates.
After figuring out she needed surgury to correct this, Miley starts worrying "What if the surgeon messes up?" After having some hoot chocolate that her dad made, she has a crazy dream where she isn't Hannah Montana anymore and the singing honor goes to Jackson, now known as Bucky Kentucky. I liked the rhyme.
Then after being ignored, she is visited in the dream by her mom, who tells here everything will be alright. Lily and Oliver say that no matter what she'll still be their friend and Jackson says that in real life he sings like a starved walrus. Miley then hugs him and the dream ends.
I think this episode was very meaningful. It showed that Miley's friends like her for who she is and her family loves her as well. It makes for quite a good episode.
I thought it was aightt . . . . i loved Lily's hair and how it looked like her and Oliver were together going to a concert ^_^
But it showed a lot of things like her mother, some brotherly love, and all . . . I also like when hwe mother yells at hwe dad. . . I wish I could realize when I was having a dream! I would do some fun stuff =P It's not like it was you know suspenseful or anything. . . . but it was . . good
Miley loses her voice and must undergo throat surgery, or she can't be Hannah Montana. Her surgeon informs her that the chance of her losing her singing voice is one in a million. Miley, scared of losing her voice, has a dream where she is just Miley.
Overall, this was a touching episode. This episode was the last to air in the Freshman High Five (the airing of the new season) and was, in my opinion, the best out of all of them. There is no other plotline in this episode because most of everything revolves around Miley. A truly great part in this episode was the dream sequence, where Miley imagines that no one loves her anymore because she is not Hannah Montana anymore. The first part is hilarious with funny one-liners and humorous antics. The last part is very moving because Miley's mother teaches Miley that even if she does lose her voice, then everyone will still love her. Overall, this was a heartrending episode.
Full Moon wo ____ or Searching for a Full Moon is about a young brunette who wasn't allowed to become a singer because of her voice. She meets two Shimigami that tell her she was going to die in a year. She runs off to audition as a singer so she will die, completing her dream. They eventually help her. With one snap, her hair became blond and she was older, so she didn't have throat cancer anymore. When she changes back, she was still suffering. Later in the series, she too began to worry about loosing her voice in the process of surgery. In the end, she was ok. Doesn't THAT sound familiar? It was a great Hannah Montana episode and all, but doesn't this episode sound like another show? I know it's not exactly the same, but doesn't it seem like Hannah was kind of based off of Full Moon?
i liked this epiode very much. it was enjoyable and funny, especially mileys dreams about her mother! this episode may be 'just a filler' episode but it was pretty cool. lilly was very funny, and for the first time in a long time jackson was being nice to Miley, which creeped me out and scared me a little bit as he is usually making fun of her. Oliver was funny in this episode as well!:D however i would have to say the highlight of this episode was Mileys dream; they were wacky, yet at the same time hilarious. I'll rememeber this episode for a very long time.
This is a very special episode. It involves a flashback to many memories Miley had with her mother. This also gives us a gimpse into why Miley became Hannah Montana. I am giving this episode a 9.4 because some parts were a little too predictable. And I didn't find this episode as funny as the others. Plus I wish they had given a bit more information as to how Miley's mother had died.
This was still a pretty good episode but i wanted like a flash back when she was younger but oh well. Anyway this episode was about Miley losing her voice. The doctor comes and does surgery but worries her about her not being a rock star any more. So she has a dream and her mothers there and all her friends and brother jackson and her dad. Miley mom said that your friends wouldn't change her any different even if she wasn't hannah. Jackson became a singer and Miley acted like she was treated so unfairly. Then she wakes up and her voice is back.
This episode was hilarious, but it also brought tears to my eyes. Miley loses her voice and can't sing until she gets her surgery. The doctor frightens her when he tells her that the chances of her never being able to sing again are one in a million, because the chances that she became a pop star were one in a million, and she was that one. She was afraid of being the one in a million to lose her singing voice forever, and she had a nightmare about it. When her mother appears in the dream, that's when tears started pouring from my eyes. It was so beautiful seeing her mother, because I remember her mother died a while ago. I cried so much. It was so sweet.
Miley as Hannah is doing a concert and she sings too much, which hurts her voice. So, she goes a week without talking and singing. When a week goes by, she can talk and sing fine. Then, at the next concert, her voice starts cracking. The doctor tells her that she'll need to go through surgery if she ever wants to sing again. Miley's nervous and has a dream with her late mother (played by Brooke Shields).
I love this episode! Everyone was really great in this episode and it was funny, but a little more serious. It was nice that we FINALLY got to see Miley and Jackson's mom. At first, I thought Brooke Shields wouldn't do such a good job, but she surprise me! I love it when Miley's nervous about the surgery and Jackson is saying what could happen that could mess the surgery up and Miley goes 'Oh no. My career will be ruin all to a gaint weiner (hot dog)!' LOL! I love that! Great episode to end Freshmen High Five!
Poor Miley, I felt sorry she had larinqitz. I liked it when the doctor was "trying" to make her feel betterbut didn;t. I loved the fact that in this episode we dig a little more into Miley's past when we see her mother in her dream. I thought this was great because we really got to see how much Miley misses her mom. I also love that they put Hannah's carrer on the line. This the first time Miley thinks about what her life would be like if she wasn't Hannah Montana. We she this in her dream also. Miley realizes that sure her life wouldn't be as glamourous but she'd still have family and friends who care about her behind her every step of the way. We can truley see that Oliver and Lily are true friends and there to stay. With all the potential this series has, I don't see why is it stealing material seen before a hundred times on a million other series. The episode explores Miley's love of being Hanna and singing on stage for her fans, With all the potential this series has, I don't see why is it stealing material seen before a hundred times on a million other series. The episode explores Miley's love of being Hannah and singing on stage for her fans!!!
I think this episode is very good it was really funny and I don't know why people didn't really like this episode. I think it had all the elements in this episode. All in all it was good episode and I enjoyed seing Brooke Shields back on the tv again.
With all the potential this series has, I don't see why is it stealing material seen before a hundred times on a million other series. The episode explores Miley's love of being Hanna and singing on stage for her fans, but it also puts her in the old Cinderella dream sequence seen before on hundreds of other shows like "Gilligan's Island." However, it redeems itself with the aspect of lucid dreaming, reminding Miley that she can control what happens in her dreams. Brooke Shields also shines as Miley's mom, hopefully opening the door for more appearances and maybe her own series again. It's a charming and better episode that some of the episodes, but not quite a perfectly written episode.
This was another great episode of Hannah Montana. I loved the fact that in this episode we dig a little more into Miley's past when we see her mother in her dream. I thought this was great because we really got to see how much Miley misses her mom. I also love that they put Hannah's carrer on the line. This the first time Miley thinks about what her life would be like if she wasn't Hannah Montana. We she this in her dream also. Miley realizes that sure her life wouldn't be as glamourous but she'd still have family and friends who care about her behind her every step of the way. We can truley see that Oliver and Lily are true friends and there to stay. I think Miley learns a true lesson about the importance of the loved ones around us and she learns that you don't need to be famous for people to like you, and your true friends will be behind you no matter what.
This is an awesome episode, I've been waiting to see Brooke shields to appear in this show. It's definitely worth the wait. Brooke Shields plays a perfect mom for Miley, the dream sequences is funny and the writers kept it funny. Just the way I wanted it. The premise for this episode is hilarious, I really had a good time watching it. I was laughing all the way through the episode. Brooke Shields was the real spectacle for this episode, the few moments with her was perfectly written. I wish she can come back for more dream sequences, I really love this episode.
