    On the Lam:''Stinky, Harold, and Sid are on the run after they think they blew up a police station. I thought that this was an excellent episode of "Hey Arnold". It was hilarious and the storyline was so creative and very impressive. This is definitely one of the funniest "Hey Arnold" episodes that I have ever seen. Harold, Stinky, and Sid thinking that they blew up the police station with a rocket that they stole from Mr. Simmons when it was actually Ernie and his demolition buddies that blew up the police station was very funny and very clever. It was also hilarious when Harold, Stinky, and Sid tied up Arnold and disguised as hobos so the police won't catch them. The episode was just all-around hilarious and very clever. Overall, a hilarious episode of "Hey Arnold". 10/10



    Family Man:''Mr. Hyunh has Arnold pretending to be his son for his new employer. This was another excellent episode of "Hey Arnold". Although, even though both episodes got perfect scores from me... I liked "On the Lam" a teeny bit better but I still think this episode is perfection though. Everyone that lives in the boarding house agreeing to pretend to be Mr. Hyunh's family so he can impress his boss and keep his job at the deli shop was very nice. Grandma's part in this episode was hilarious. Oscar was pretty funny in this episode as well. I also enjoyed Arnold telling Mr. Hyunh's boss that Mr. Hyunh is like family to everyone at the boarding house and how they always look out for each other. Mr. Hyunh's boss letting him keep his job at the deli shop was also very nice as well. Overall, an excellent episode of "Hey Arnold". 10/10moreless
  • Harold, Stinky, and Sid run for their lives after they thought they blew up the police station.

    9.6
    During Mr. Simmons' experiment with bottle rockets used with vinegar and baking soda, Harold thought it was so cool that he wanted to try it himself but school was let out. So Harold, Stinky, and Sid sneaked into Mr. Simmons' room and stole the bottle rockets and used them behind an old police station and the rockets flew towards the police station while Ernie blew it up with dynamite and the boys thought they blew it up. So they sneaked into Arnold's basement and disguise themselves as hobos and they tied up Arnold in a chair so e won't tell on them after they told Arnold they thought they blew up the police station. Meanwhile, the parents of Harold, Stinky, and Sid are beginning to worry. The boys are going to live in a train box car, but a security guard discovered them and called the police and Arnold came to the scene and then all thee of them confessed but Ernie said he blew it up and then Mr. Simmons came and told Harold they are gonna have a long talk at school. This episode did not disappointed me one bit and I find this episode very hilarious.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • In On the Lam, during the boys' "confession" to Arnold when they think they blew up the police station, Sid mentions that the police station "just fell down in a huge cloud of smoke." However, in the actual demolition, the police station actually goes flying through the air in many pieces in a major explosion instead of just falling down (or imploding, as many real-life demolitions using explosions are done.)

    • In the episode, "Family Man," it was dumb that Arnold's grandma told Mr. Hyunh's new boss that she's his sister. She should have pretended to be his mother the same way Arnold's grandpa pretended to be Mr. Hyunh's father.

    • When Stinky shows Sid and Harold the hot sauce on the bottle it says Jackass Kicking Louisiana Hot Sauce. Similarly, an episode of Rocko's Modern Life had the phrase "Elevator to Hell" in plain view. Even though these words aren't really that bad, it wouldn't seem possible that Nickelodeon could have those words on their station.

    • Harold, Stinky, and Sid should not have been able to go near a building that was going to be blown up.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Mr. Hyunh: Everyone, I have terrible, terrible news. Tomorrow night, my boss is coming to dinner. It is you are my family, it is I'm married to Suzie and Arnold is my son and Grandpa is my father. (Grandpa spits out his coffee)
      Ernie: Ho-ho. Boy Hyunh, you sure messed this baby up.
      Mr. Hyunh: I don't know what to do.
      Arnold: I think you should just come clean and tell your boss the truth.
      Oskar: He can't tell him the truth. His boss will know he's a liar and fire him. And then Mr. Hyunh will become a poor, homeless beggar.
      Mr. Hyunh: Oh! What a disaster!
      Ernie: Who says he has to find out? Look, all we have to do is pretend for one night that we're Hyunh's family. I mean, we practically are his family anyway except for the fact that we're not related and we don't like each other.
      Suzie: It's true. We are kind of like his family.
      Grandpa: I agree, especially the kind of part.

    • Ernie Potts: I'm telling you, we could pull this off.
      Suzie Kokoshka: I suppose I could be Mrs. Hyunh for just one night.
      Ernie Potts: And I'll be his brother, Edwin. Arnold will be his son, Grandpa will be his father.
      Grandma: (coming in from the kitchen) And I'll be Mary, Queen of Scots!
      Grandpa: Pookie, you just stay out of the way.

    • Stinky: I done went and sat on my hot sauce and now I gots hot pants!

    • Harold: (Pretending to be a hobo, he gets asked if he's seen Harold, Stinky, and Sid) No sir, and we don't know nothing about some police station!

    • Harold: We can't go to the authorities, we blew up the authorities!

    • Harold, Sid, and Stinky: WE BLEW UP THE POLICE STATION!!!!! Waaaaaah!!!!!
      Ernie: No... I blew up the police station!!!!
