    Suspended:''Harold is suspended and will do anything to get back into school. I thought that this was an excellent episode of "Hey Arnold". It was very funny and the storyline was perfectly well written with such creative writers of this show. Harold's attempts getting back into school such as disguising as the pizza guy, digging a hole, and more along with Principal Wartz giving more weeks of suspension was very funny. I also thought it was funny that Harold got suspended on purpose so he won't have to go to school but becomes bored at home when he realizes that he has nobody to play with. Harold begging Principal Wartz as well was very funny. So yeah, I loved the humor and I loved the storyline to this episode. Overall, a perfect episode of "Hey Arnold". 10/10



    ''''Ernie in Love:''Ernie starts dating a tall model, but she doesn't want to continue dating him because of his height. This was another perfect episode of "Hey Arnold". I really thought the storyline to this whole episode was very cute. For the humor, there wasn't so much humor except for maybe in the first 3 minutes of the episode but I don't care though, all that matters is that the storyline kept me entertaining. The first 3 or so minutes of the episode was funny because Ernie is spying on that tall supermodel and is too shy to talk to her.... Arnold even saw how desperate Ernie is acting when he writes secret poems was funny as well. I thought it was very cute when Ernie and that tall supermodel were having fun such as when Ernie showed the supermodel how to whack a mole and more. I also loved the very ending of the episode when the tall supermodel apologized to Ernie because she didn't want to continue dating Ernie since he was too short. Overall, a perfectly cute episode of "Hey Arnold". 10/10moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Harold: (While jumping on the bed, and hits his head on the ceiling) Stupid ceiling! (His bed breaks) Stupid bed! (There's a boring show on every channel) Stupid TV! (Harold is hiding in the dumpster, and gets rotten cheese dumped on him) Stupid cheese!

    • Ernie: (writing a poem) "I long to meet you, dearest Lola. If I were Spanish, I'd say 'Hola'. Of you I am so enamored, into my heart forever hammered".
      Arnold: That's it, you have to talk to Lola!
      Ernie: I told you, I can't.
      Arnold: You say her name in your sleep, you've made a statue of her, and you've written about a hundred of these little secret love poems. The least you can do is talk to her.

    • Harold: (when he saw a D+ on his paper) Oh, I hate school. I wish I never have to go to school again.
      Arnold: Come on, Harold, it's not that bad.
      Harold: Yes, it is! We're trapped in here day after day, doing boring stuff, and standing in line for cold crappy food that they don't even give me time to eat! Oh, I hate it! I hate it! I hate it! I just wish there was some way to get out of school and get to stay home and be free!

    • Principal Wartz: Repeat slowly after me.
      Harold: Slowly after me...
      Principal Wartz: No!

  • NOTES (4)

    • Harold said that his parents wouldn't know if he got suspended, shouldn't Principal Wartz call his parents and let them know that he got suspended?

    • First time that Harold gets suspended.

    • Harold says "crap" in this episode.

    • In this episode, Harold misreads the word "circumstances" for "circumcisions." It's very surprising that Nick would forbid the word "dead" being used for almost 10 years, but suddenly let a direct sexual reference (with an added rimshot) to be inserted in one of their shows. Even with a TV-Y7 rating, it doesn't seem like a very appropriate joke for a kid's show.
