  • Pilot

    In this pilot episode we see Miley's first dilemma. Her best friend, Lilly, is like Hannah Montana's biggest fan she even got them concert tickets to go together, but of course Miley can't go because she IS Hannah Montana! She doesn't want Lilly to know her secret because it could change the way Lilly sees her forever. Later after her concert Lilly sneaks into Hannah's dressing room! Miley has to pie herself so Lilly won't recognize her, but eventually she figures it out when Miley is wearing the bracelet she gave her. This makes Lilly angry that Miley didn't tell her, but she gets over it when she sees her amazing closet! After a slip of the tongue Miley then gets upset with Lilly for calling her Hannah. Lilly has to go to Miley's house to apologize and they make up promising to keep the secret and to keep it real.

    This episode was awesome and a great pilot. I enjoyed the friendship Miley and Lilly have and Miley's weird brother Jackson.moreless
  • The Beginning

    Lilly gets tickets to a Hannah Montana and wants to take Miley, who secretly IS Hannah, so she lies about it. But when Lilly eventually finds out the truth that her best friend is her favorite singer, and that she has been lying about it, will this wreck their friendship forever?

    It was kind of weak for an opener for a show but it was OK. It was not terrible it was not perfect, I would say it is a little abover average, and my grade for it is a B+ or so. Pretty good but could be a little bettermoreless
  • bad bad bad....

    wanna see pilot episode that sucks? than watch this! lily has tickets to see hannah montana and asks miley to go with her. since miley is hannah montana and liley doesnt know she cant go( aww so sad) so miley performs as hannah but liley and oliver sneak into the dressing room. miley tries her best to not reveal thats shes hannah, but lily finds out anyway. shes angry cuz miley hasnt told her. but in the end everything works out okay(happy happy!) the thing that bugs me about the show is the bad acting and how overated it is. sorry about the insults, but everyones entitled to their own opinion. plz view my profile and comment on the blogs!moreless
  • Nice Beginning

    This was a good beginning. It was very um eh touching. (kinda) It was funny but her secret and Lilly finding out was umm sweet. I really liked this pilot but it also would have been cool to start at her beginning Hannah Montana having her first show. Though this is still a good pilot. I thought at first Oliver knew as soon as Lilly figured it out but then when I saw "Miley get your gum" I figured out he didnt know yet. I think Miley should have told Lilly and Oliver as soon as she became Hannah Montana. Why wouldnt she just trust them. If I was Hannah Montana I would trust my best friends and only my best friends know. I wouldnt go crazy telling people.moreless
  • The very first episode..

    I really liked this episode. Miley's BFF Lilly discovers that Miley is Hannah Montana...and so it all begins! The great friendship between Lilly and Miley...Of course, Oliver doesn't know....yet. I must mention Miley's voice here....haha, all country-fied. :P Much more down-to-earth feeling then in later episodes....I must say that I really liked the first episodes....but the later ones....I don't know, but anyways, Hannah Montana is Hannah Montana, you either like the show, or you don't and if you don't like the show, don't watch it...I'm glad kids like it though....it is entertaining to them. Not much else to say...I know my reviews suck :Pmoreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (19)

    • The name of Miley's character for the show was originally scripted to be Chloe, but it was later changed to Miley Stewart.

    • Goof: When Lilly climbs in the window of Hannah Montana's dressing room you see her start to bring her knee up to the ledge. Then when she grabs the light her leg is down again. Then she brings it up and climbs in.

    • Goof: In the scene where Miley and Robbie are talking, Miley says she wants to go for a walk on the beach. She puts on one shoe and talks to her dad again. In the next scene, however, both of her shoes are on.

    • In the opening scene, the TV reporter calls Hannah Montana "14 year old sensation". However, Hannah Montana is only 13.

    • Hannah Montana performs "This is the Life" in this episode.

    • After Miley wipes the ketchup off of her hand, there is some left on her hand. In the next shot, her hand is completely clean, in the next shot it has ketchup on it again, and when Lilly gives Miley her lucky bracelet and puts it on her wrist, her hand is completely clean again.

    • Hannah's "This is the Life" music video was "directed" by the fictitious director Baz Roberts and the song came from the fictitious album "Hannah Live."

    • When Lilly first comes to the house, it supposedly takes her 20 seconds. However in the shot, it really much shorter, only about 15 seconds from when she called.

    • When Lilly is chasing Hannah around the clothes rack, you see a blue shirt on the ground. But if you look really quickly when she runs to the door, the shirt is gone.

    • When Lilly is on the revolving clothes table (before it starts revolving) you see a strap from her shirt hanging down on her shoulder. But then in the next scene, it disappears.

    • The fans waiting for Hannah's autograph have photos of Hannah in the same exact outfit (Down to the same scarf & sunglasses) she's wearing in her dresing room.

    • When Miley has ketchup on her hand and wipes it off there is still a ring around her wrist, then it disappears and then comes back, then disappears again and then it comes back.

    • Goof: In the beginning of the scene where "Hannah" is autographing the girl's face you can see that she has already finished, but when the scene starts she pretends to sign the fan's face again.

    • When Miley comes in the house, she takes Robbie's ice cream bowl. You can see a bottle of whipped cream and chocolate sauce sitting on the table. When Robbie and Jackson start singing, the whipped cream and chocolate sauce change places.

    • The blue towel that Hannah drops trying to avoid Lilly disappears after the change in camera angle.

    • In one scene you can see Miley's dad holding the french fry he picked out of her hair, in the next scene he dosen't have it, and as Jacksn's walking up to take the fry he is holding it again.

    • Miley and Billy Ray Cyrus, being from the country, both have the country accent, but you can tell Jason Earles is faking his. If you saw him on Phil of the Future as Grady Spaggett and on the Disney 411 segment where he appeared, you can hear he doesn't have the accent.

    • Miley wears a size 5 shoe and Lilly wears a size 6 shoe.

    • In the music video for This is the Life Hannah Montana was seen wearing an entirely different wig than the one she wears in the episode. (This episode was edited. In the original version, Hannah wore the wig she wore throughout the episode. At the begining in her video, the original version had her wearing a bright yellow tank top with pink highlights in her hair. Also, at her concert, she wore the same clothes as the edited version, except without the white jacket. She was singing on the stage alone, with no band, and she sang longer. They even showed her saying "Thank you, Los Angeles!" instead of switching to the stadium scene like in the edited version.)

      Hannah: NO, ya know, cell phones don't really work in here. It has to do with the walls and the cement. (Miley's phone rings) Well look at that I guess they fixed it.

      (Jackson takes the french fry and eats it)

    • Robbie: I know you're concerned that if Lilly finds out the truth that she won't treat you the same. She's still you're best bud. You need to trust that. At least think about telling her?

      (Miley stares at him; Lilly punches her in the arm)
      Miley: Um, pretty good. (starts putting ketchup on her hand unknowingly) Just getting some ketchup for my veggie burger. I see you like mayonnaise. Never tried that on a veggie burger, and maybe I should, but not today because I got the whole ketchup thing going...
      Lilly: Miley. Miley. Miley! Miley!

I got two incredible tickets for tomorrow night. Great, I'll see you then. (hangs up; to Miley) I need two incredible seats for tomorrow night.
      Miley: Sorry, I'm sold out.
