  • Helga tries to prove to Arnold she is sophistocated and win him over. Phoeboe skips two grades and is used by the older girls.

    8.5
    It was pretty good, but average. Helga tries once again to impress Arnold and win him over but fails. yet, in the end, he teases her playfully by splashing her with water and winks at her, making her happy. Though, Helga did changer her hair which was cool, considering it's tiring to always see the characters in the same exact clothes and hair stlye.



    The creaters of the show should get a little more creative with the plot. Helga constantly tries to impress Arnold and it goes horribly wrong yet he ends up sorta seeing a better side to her each time and smiles or winks or says something nice. They should spice it up a little bit.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Phoebe: (jumping on her bed) I get to go to the sixth grade! I get to go to the sixth grade!

    • Phoebe: I suppose the only solution would be to tell the manger the truth.
      Helga: That is the stupidest idea I have ever heard in my entire life!

    • Helga: I need time to come up with a plan to get out of paying! We'll stall! We'll order more food! Lots more food!
      Phoebe: But isn't that just exacerbating the problem?

    • Helga: I am not gonna go back in there, tell them the truth, and wind up washing dishes.
      (Scene changes)
      Helga: I can't believe I told them the truth, and I wound up washing dishes.

  • NOTES (5)

    • In "Dinner for Four," at the restaurant, the A for Cleanliness sign isn't on the window the whole time until the scene Helga notices it. After that, it's not there again.

    • This is the first time in the series that Phoebe skips two grades.

    • Helga says "crap" in "Phoebe Skips."

    • The animation style is the same style from Season 3 (this was inked and colored by hand, the other Season 4 episodes use digital ink and paint), however, Spencer Klein voices Arnold as he does in most Season 4 and 5 episodes. This could be most likely because these were produced earlier in the season and not aired until later.

    • "Dinner for Four" may be the only episode in which Mr. Simmons appears, but never says the word "special."
