    Bully stories have been done in countless movies and tv shows. Hannah Montana attempts the bully idea in this episode, and fail miserably. A girl at school is bullying Miley and Roxy comes to the rescue by pretending to be a student to protect Miley. Seriously, could no one tell Roxy was old. She didn't look like a teenager at all! Meanwhile, Robbie and Jackson are stuck in the middle of no where with some crazy geezer. That story line was also unoriginal, but at least it was a little funny, though it dragged on too much. Overall, not a very good episode.moreless

    like with the "zit" episode, I think the moral is only good if the execution was, to me it wasn't. I thought the bully was annoying and clearly a parody of the "Juicer" from fellow show That's So Raven. The subplot with Robbie and Jackson trapped was OK, but as usual I did not like the ending. Overall, it is a fair episode, it is not too terribly bad but it isn't fantastic or anything either, a bit average I think actually, my grade for this episode is a C+, which to me indicates it was an average offering.

  • Pretty good, but the Cracker was really annoying.

    There is a new girl at school nicknamed The Cracker. Miley decides to go and introduce herself to her because she knows what it feels like to be new. The Cracker ends up being a bully and she starts harassing Miley. Miley asks Roxy how to stop her. Roxy tells Miley to go to the principal. When Miley doesn't go to the principal, Roxy decides to come to school as a student to watch over Miley. Roxy drives Miley crazy on purpose so she will tell the principal. It finally works, but the principal comes a little to late and The Cracker put Miley in the salad bar. Robbie and Jackson go on a fishing trip, but it gets cancelled when it snows. The only place left to stay for the night is a honeymoon suite. The man that rented them the room, Gunther, had a talking dummy. Jackson and Robbie snuck out and paid for the dummy.moreless
  • A new girl, dubbed the Cracker, starts to attend Miley's school an harrases Miley. She smears lipstick on her face, pulls her hair around her head, and even throws her into the salad bar! Roxy pretends to be a student at Miley's school to protect her.moreless

    Overall, this was a mediocre episode. This was a part of a special vote concerning a New Year's celebration, but it didn't win. No surprise there! This episode was funny and exciting at certain parts, like how Miley and Lilly attempt to fool the Cracker into thinking that Miley is tough, but most of the episode was very, very cliche. Think about it: many TV shows feature episodes where the protagonist has to face a mean, violent bully. This plotline, often seen before, gave no sense of originality. The only really clever thing was that the bully cracked walnuts for her enjoyment. Cliches aside, the episode was well-written with a few hilarious one-liners, like Miley saying to the Cracker, "I saw the Nutcracker once...loved it!" In conclusion, this episode was very unoriginal and partly humorous.moreless
  • one of the worst episodes

  • QUOTES (15)

    • (After the snow avalanche)
      Gunther: Oh! What do you know about that! Looks like we're all stuck.
      Jackson: Ahh! He right, we are stuck!
      Robbie: Well on the bright side, at least he doesn't have the dummy.
      Gunther: (Speaking as Nelson the dummy) Who are you calling a dummy, dummy.
      Jackson: Daddy, I've seen this movie before. And you and I don't make it to the sequel.

    • Roxy: Now, Robbie Ray, you and Jackson enjoy that father-son fishing trip. I won't let anything harm a hair on your baby girl's pretty little hair. (Opens the door and sees Miley with her arms tied above her head with own her hair) Gotta go!
      Roxy: Who did this to you?
      Miley: The new kid in school. She thinks I look better with my hair up.
      Roxy: Didn't anybody try to help you?
      Lilly (Steps in with arms tied up like Miley's): That would be me!

    • Oliver: You go make friends with the cracker and I'll stay here and start writing your will.
      Lilly: Ooh! Put me down for all her shoes. (Miley gives her the look) I mean good luck!
      Miley: Ah, the fellowship of the weenies!

    • (Jackson and Robbie are snowed in a cabin with Gunther)
      Jackson: We can at least try to dig out. Right?
      Gunther: Dig what? You've broke all of our best plastic spoons!

    • Miley: So, this was your plan from the beginning?
      Roxy: That's right. You've heard of reverse psychology. Well, welcome to reverse Rox-ology. No need to thank me, honey.
      Miley: Wait a minute. I got tossed around like a salad so you could teach me a lesson?
      Roxy: You never do eat your vegetables.
      Miley: Well, you better run, 'cause Miley's like a puma! Hyah!
      Roxy: (Runs) Aah! Principal, Principal, help me! Help me!

    • Miley: (About Roxy) She's impossible. I can't talk to boys and these nurses shoes are hideous. And now, she's making us wear the same clothes, so if I get lost, she can tell people "I'm looking for someone dressed like me."
      Lilly: Hey, only 4 more years and you can wear what you want... unless she follows you to college.

    • (At Miley's school)
      Roxy: Now, take your shoes off and put these on.
      Miley: Roxy, these look like nurses shoes.
      Roxy: Safest shoes ever made. These waxy floors are a broken hip waiting to happen.
      Miley: Nurses shoes?
      Lilly: Hey, look on the bright side. (Pauses) I'm sorry, there is no bright side to this.

    • (after the Cracker runs away)
      Lilly: What did you do?
      Roxy: I used ESP. Extra Sensory Puma.

    • Troy: Hey, Lilly. Hey, Miley.
      Lilly & Miley: Hi, Troy.
      Troy: Listen, the basketball team is having a party this Saturday, and I was wondering if you guys want to go.
      Roxy: No, we can't.
      Troy: Actually, I was...
      Roxy: I said no! Now, move, move, move!
      (Troy leaves)
      Roxy: He seems like a sweet boy. Those are the ones you gotta watch.
      Lilly: Roxy, what are you doing?! I had my eyes on him!

    • Jackson: We're never gonna get out! We're gonna die in here!
      Robbie: No one's gonna die. Now, stop focusing on the negative and focus on the positive. Snow plow's gonna be here soon.
      Gunther: Bad news, fellas. Snow plow won't be here till morning.
      Robbie: Sweet frozen niblets!

    • Jackson: Could you open the door?
      Gunther: You boys are lucky I'm still open. The Health Department wanted to close me down last week.
      Robbie: Really? Why was that?
      Gunther: Bugs. Big, big bugs. But don't worry; we're fumigating all the other rooms.
      Jackson: 'Cause you already did this one?
      Gunther: Okay.

    • Miley: Can you teach me that?
      Roxy: No way! You only use violence as a last resort.
      Miley: And when is that? When she yanks out my intestines and wears it as a belt?

    • Roxy: First thing tomorrow, you go right to that principal and tell him what's going on.
      Miley: And be a snitch? No way!
      Roxy: Well, then, it looks like I'll have to go down there and protect you myself from The Cookie.
      Miley: She's not The Cookie; she's The Cracker!
      Roxy: I don't care what kind of snack food she is. She's gonna have to get through me!

    • Lilly: (About The Cracker) Rumor is, where her old school kicked her out, they had to call Animal Control. It took 6 dog catchers and a giant net to bring her down.
      Miley: Come on, Lilly. It's hard enough to be the new kid in school without people making up stories about you. Remember when I moved here from Tennessee and somebody spread a rumor that I ate possum? (Looks at Oliver)
      Oliver: I didn't know you then.

    • Oliver: Mmm. Nothing better on a peanut butter sandwich than pickled chips, little bit of mustard, and chili.
      (Miley & Lilly give him weird looks)
      Oliver: What? It all ends up in the same place!

  • NOTES (5)

  • ALLUSIONS (5)

    • Miley: Hey Jeanie, this barrette would go perfect with your light brown hair.

      This is a reference to the Stephan Foster song "Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair".

    • Miley: Ah, the fellowship of the weenies.

      The Fellowship of the Weenies is an allusion to the first "Lord of the Rings" book titled The Fellowship of the Ring.

    • Roxy: ...float like a butterfly, braid with a bead.
      This is an allusion to Muhammad Ali's favorite saying, Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.

    • The Cracker:
      The Cracker and her bullying ways are similar to the That's So Raven character called The Juicer who premiered in the episode, "Juicer Consequences".
