  • I really didn't like this episode...

    1.5
    Miley gets Hannah to take a security job for the president of the United States, but Miley soon starts to miss Roxy and tries to get her back. Hannah goes to the white house, eats some dog food, and then convinces Roxy to come back. First thing, it takes years to get a security job for the president because they do background checks and you need years of service. Also, I hated the whole story when Hannah ate dog food. That was disgusting. Meanwhile, Rico made a high-tech security system for his shop and Jackson can't handle it. Overall, I really didn't like this episode.moreless

    miley is sick of roxy being so overprotective, especially on a date miley had. so, she tries getting roxy a job with the president of the united states. but soon miley misses roxy. will she be able to convince roxy that she needs her and to come back as bodyguard for hannah montana



    it was alright but really boring at times. the conclusion was rather predictable and i do not think getting to the conclusion was anything special. i might be alone in this, oh well, my grade for this is a solid "C", not terrible, not brilliant either, methinksmoreless
  • Not a very exciting episode.

    6.8
    Miley is sick of Roxy ruining things. When she ruins her date, she has finally had enough. She talks Roxy into taking a job at the White House. Then Miley feels guilty about it and decides to have her come back. She goes to the White House with her dad and Lilly as Lola. They finally talk Roxy into coming back after Lilly dresses up as Hannah, Miley eats dog food, and some other weird events. My favorite part of this episode was...



    Hannah: Daddy, he is never going to ask me out again!

    Robbie: Oh, honey, you say that about every boy you and Roxy date.

    Hannah: Do I even need to tell you what's wrong with that sentence?



    and...



    Hannah: Dad, This night was a disaster!

    Robbie: Oh, I'm sure it wasn't that bad. I bet the boy had a good time.

    Hannah: Dad, Roxy put a bell around his arm, so every time he tried to make a move, it went, "ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding ding ding ding."

    Robbie: Exactly how many times did the boy "ding"?

    Hannah: It doesn't matter, daddy. Every time he went "ding," she went "don't," and I went "dang"!moreless
  • Miley finally gets rid of Roxy then feels guilty about it...

    5.1
    Okay, I like Hannah Montana. When it's good, it's really good, but when it's bad, it's really bad. With all the potential the series has, it just ain't making it with all these horribly predictable episodes, and this one is a fine example. One of the worst characters to have popped up is Roxy; she's not funny nor is she believable. In fact, she's so annoying as she ruins every scene she pops up in. In this episode, Miley has finally had it and pawns her off on two characters "visiting" from a really bad show. (I think the only reason have John D'Aquino and Madison Pettis cross over is to try and promote their show which is doing lousy in the ratings, but all they do is prove why their show is so bad.) Miley finally gets rid of Roxy but feels guilty. Enter the unrealistic unfunny hard-to-watch slapstick moment that was much funnier when Lucy and Ethel first did it fifty years ago. Lilly is stuck in a much funnier situation trying to pose as Hannah, but we don't get enough of that. It's not funny watching Miley suffer or demean herself, and it's definitely not plausible to rehire the world's worst bodyguard after firing them when you know they're going to screw up all over again. With predictable episodes like this, I don't think I'll miss Hannah when the series wraps next year.moreless
  • Very good!

    9.0
    Take This Job and Love It was very well written and had a great story line. It was one of the funniest episodes. All of the people were in character. I don't often approve of crossover episodes, I think that shows should stick with characters that they already have, rather than use others from other shows, but this crossover episode, I approve of. The episode was very good. Roxy is one of the funniest characters on the show, but, she was too over-protective, so I do partially agree with Miley in this case. I hope that all of the rest of the episodes are this good. I recommend this episode to all Hannah Montana and Cory In the House fans.moreless
