  • Gah! Too Corny

    As one of the few people who don't like the character Scott I wasn't the biggest fan of this episode. I loved the interaction betwee Daisy, David and Ezra and hell the Ezra and Shelby Kiss rocked.

    The closing scene, yup very puke worthy. Please Scott didn't come back because he loved Shelby he came back because his dad was still an ass and still blamed him for what happened with Elaine.

    It was a little annoying we didn't see Kat gradaute, I mean come on thats a little more important character wise then the annoying tales of Scott and Shelby.moreless
  • Higher Ground as I wrote in the show's review is a extraordinary show and this episode shows why I loved it very much.

    In this episode all the problems just came to an end and everyone was happy. I just don't like how the series ended with that episode. the fact that you know that most of the characters are still in Horizon just kills me.

    I think they should have kept going with the show until all of them left and have them bring new untamed kids into the last show now that it shows that Peter's job is never over.

    I wish they still had this show running just because it felt more real than a lot of the kids' shows that they have on now. Degrassi over does it, One tree Hill has 20 year-olds and up playing the role of kids, and 7th heaven is one big happy family.

    Higher Ground Kept it real....O and I loved this episode! lolmoreless
  • Tear

    Seriously, I have seen this episode probably 50 times and from the first time to yesterday when I saw it, I can't help but tear up! this is the greatest episode of the season and the cutest! When your watching this episode you completely forget about the clock, time seems to move too fast and all of a sudden your left happy and upset. Does Scott come back to Horizon for good? that is the main question on my mind at the end. The one question that will never be answered, I wish that we could just call the producers and be like what was going to happen! haha anyway this was an amazing episode!moreless
  • This was a great series finale !! I L0VED it !!

    Excellent is how to describe Higher Ground's series finale ! I really wished the show didn't have to end but this was a superb ending for it. I loved the MORP idea and how Scott was able to go back home but decided to come back and be with Shelby during the MORP. I know from the begining episode i was hooked and this episode completed a great circle to the show. I believe that before you watch this episode you should watch all the other episodes to be able to understand how much everyone means to each other.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (19)

    • Shelby: Why did you come back?
      Scott: Because, I love you.

    • Mr. Barringer: I don't know where my head was. The clues were everywhere, like rat droppings. How could I not have known, not have suspected, not have trusted my own son? Rat droppings. I saw them and I just...swept them away and I swept my son away with them.

    • Sophie: Peter, I have a class in five minutes.
      Peter: Good, then we can talk for four.

    • Sophie: Peter, you'll always be my rock, my touchstone. Always.
      Peter: So why won't you marry me?
      Sophie: Because…
      Peter: Because why?
      Sophie: Because I love you.

    • David: We're too screwed up and backwards to have a prom.
      Katherine (as she writes 'MORP' on the blackboard): Then that's what we'll have.

    • Auggie (walks in and sees 'MORP' written on the blackboard): We having a prom?

    • Peter: This will be a good opportunity for us to work on our social skills.
      Auggie: What social skills?
      Peter: My point exactly.

    • Scott: I was thinking, you should come to some of my games.
      Shelby: Oh, um…yeah, maybe.
      Scott: And then next year you and I can go to my prom together. You think that's stupid.
      Shelby: No, I just think that you live 1000 miles away.

    • Sophie: I'm just so afraid I'm gonna lose you.
      Peter: Lose me? I just asked you to marry me. The last time I checked, that's the opposite of losing.

    • Sophie: Peter, do you want a family?
      Peter: Of course I do. Don't you? I mean, what could possibly be better than a bunch of little Sophies and Peters running around our big back yard, huh? Think about it.
      Sophie: Practically all I do is think about it. Thing is, Peter, I can't have children.
      Peter: Why can't you?
      Sophie: I can't. I'm damaged. You want the medical details? You want kids and I am incapable of giving them to you. Or me.

    • Daisy: You ever hear the theory that the people who are the most alike have the most conflict?
      Shelby: Me and Juliette? What are you, demented?
      Daisy: No, no more than usual.

    • Shelby (to Scott): There are no happy endings, okay? Just endings, and this is one of 'em.

    • Shelby (to Juliette): Another word and you're going to eat that camera. That should get your calorie count up.

    • Daisy: Well, figures. The guys get fitted for tuxes in town and the girls get second hand thrift store dresses with crusty sweat stains. Nice to know that sexism is alive and well at Horizon.

    • Shelby (to Scott): In my whole life, no one has ever looked at me the way you do. No one has ever touched my face, or brushed my hair out of my eyes like you do. And maybe this is really selfish, but it's not just you that I'm going to miss. It's the way I feel when I'm with you that I'm gonna miss even more.
      Scott: It doesn't have to be over. It doesn't have to be the end.
      Shelby: Yeah, it does.

    • Juliette (watching Scott heading home): How can a person be happy and sad at the same time?
      Peter: It's easy, Jules. Happens to me every time.

    • (After Hank shows up at the prom to surprise Katherine)
      Katherine (stunned): Who? How?
      Hank: Peter. Gave me a call and said you wouldn't mind a date for your senior prom. Guess she's got a heart in there after all.

    • Shelby: Life sucks, doesn't it?
      Ezra: Only during the waking hours.

    • Sophie: Got a question for you, mountain man. I was thinking, if you've got nothing better to do, will you marry me?
      Peter: I thought you'd never ask.
