Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Big Changes on the Way!

    This is a classic KOTH episode, not only for the major character change of Joseph, but also because it is hilarious. They did a great job of dealing with the concept of some people going through puberty quicker than others. I was never a huge fan of Joseph, but I found he got a bit more interesting in his post puberty era. There were so many good things about this episode I can't name the all, but when Dale accuses the old lady of stealing his van, it's just too funny! The B plot is OK the first few times you watch it, but it is really not great when compared to all the stuff happening in the main plot. Overall a fantastic, classic, KOTH!moreless
  • "Don't leave town!"

    What this episode did so well is that it wasn't really that straightforward. Most episodes usually have a theme and then stubbornly stick with it simultaneously playing a sidestory alongside it. The sidestory here itself was pretty funny and amusing, but the main storyline was just tangled up in so much hilarity, just plain ludicrous. The dinner scene at the diner and Dale's plain stupidity just really set the tone for the rest of the episode, and then Joseph's outrage of being intensely more attracted to women where he kisses Connie, and then his mom, was also just too funny. Then Joseph hijacking his dad's car and then crashing it. At the same time there were also some serious undertones, like the theme of Bobby being insecure about being short, and then Joseph not having social skills and is horomone outrage. An excellent episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (7)

    • Luanne does not appear in this episode.

    • Tagline: "Jennifer, we're fantastic!" -Dale

    • When Bobby runs after Connie, (just before she gets in the truck with Joseph) you can see the front door of the Hill's house is open to the left. Even though in the shot before Connie runs out (and every other episode) the door opens to the right.

    • After Hank & Peggy pick Bobby up from the airport you can see part of the clouds through the windshield. One of the clouds you can see stays in the exact same spot whilst they are driving along the main road in the back windshield. It is a cloud because of the distinct color. It also couldn't be a sticker as you can see when they park the car at the restaurant there are no marks on the windshield.

    • At the end of the episode Peggy gives Bobby his birthday cake without any pieces missing from it or marks in the cake. However earlier in the episode, Bobby brings cake for Connie. It's doubtful that there were two identical cakes. You can tell this is the same type of cake because the cream on the top is the same shape and color Bobby brought to Connie.

    • Whilst Joseph is fixing his bike, there is a green mat next to it. As he starts to ride the bike the mat has now disappeared.

    • When Bobby is driving the golf cart, he is alone. However, when he stops the cart to invite a neighbour (also in a cart) to his party, you can see feet and knees of someone sitting in the rear of the cart.

  • QUOTES (15)

    • (feeling like a little kid, Bobby doesn't want his mom to carry the cake into his birthday party and has even requested his parents not be in the room)
      Peggy: Very well. Let's get your first big mistake as a teenager out of the way.

    • Bobby: (talking about his girlfriend, Connie) She has her period already.
      Garry: Eh, give it 50 years, it'll go away.

    • Gary: (on Bar Mitzvahs) ...I got so many fancy pen-and-pencils sets, I was giving them away for years.
      Bobby: Pen-and-pencils sets? That is very manly. Can I have a Bar Mitzvah? I am willing to celebrate Hanukkah.

    • Kahn: (going to answer door) Use the doorbell, idiot! (opens door, met by Joseph)
      Kahn: (yelling across house to Connie) Connie! It's for you!
      Connie: (off screen) If it's Bobby, slam the door in his face!
      Kahn: I wish it was, so I could.

    • Connie: (after Joseph steals the Bugabego) Joseph!? Where are you going?
      Joseph: I'm going as far as... an eighth a tank of gas will take me.
      Connie: Take me with you!

    • Hank: Bobby, did you see who did this?
      Bobby: Uh... it was probably teenagers.
      Joseph: Yep. Teenagers.
      Connie: Teenagers.
      Dale: Damn teenagers!

    • Connie: Where are you going?
      Joseph: I'm going as far as an eighth of a tank of gas will take me.

    • Peggy: You think I should get out of my coffin and see what's going on?
      Hank: Over my dead body.

    • Mihn: How did tall, dark and handsome get butt kicked by short, fat and redneck?

    • Dooley: Joseph likes to watch.

    • Peggy: (lying in her coffin) Oh, Hank, it's like sleeping on a marshmallow.

    • Joseph: I can't dance.
      Bobby: Compared to me, no.
      Joseph: I got stretch marks on my shoulders and zits on my back. I can't even ride my own bike any more. And a million times a day, my dad asks me "How's the weather up there?"
      Bobby: Tell him it's fair to partly stupid.
      Joseph: Oh, man, you always know just what to say. That's why you have a girlfriend.
      Bobby: Yeah, I do, don't I?
      Joseph: I want a girl too! I just can't stop thinking about 'em! I can't get girls out of my head! Just... just get out!

    • Connie: You know, Bobby, there are some days of the month I don't like to ride a bike either.
      Bobby: You mean because you got your period?
      Connie: I chose not to use that word.
      Bobby: Why? It's a natural, beautiful thing.
      Connie: You don't understand. You're not there yet.
      Bobby: You better check the map, honey, because I am living in downtown there!

    • Peggy: If you try to stick the late Peggy Hill in an inferior casket, she will come back to haunt you. I will see to that.

    • Bobby: Connie, I rehearsed an apology, but nothing says I'm sorry like, I'm sorry.

  • NOTES (3)


    • When Dale calls Hank Aunt Bea, he is referring to the character from "The Andy Griffith Show" played by Frances Bavier.

    • Peggy: Going to your grandma's for your birthday is going to be grrrreat!

      The way Peggy says great, is the same way that Tony the Tiger does in the Frosted Flakes commercials.

    • Title: "I Don't Want To Wait For Our Lives To Be Over, I Want To Know Right Now, Will It Be…Sorry. Do Do Doo Do Do, Do Do Doo Do Do, Do Do Doo Do Do, Doo…" which is a line from the Paula Cole hit song "I don't want to wait" which serves as the theme from the teen drama Dawson's Creek.

      Here, Joseph, Bobby and Connie also form a romantic triangle roughly similar to the Dawson, Pacey and Joey one from Dawson's Creek's season one.
