  • Kyle's No Memories

    Kyle tried to recover his memories but his memories blocked him. Josh think Kyle is alien in another planet. Josh was very rude and insult Kyle huge time. I am so surprised that Kyle was yelling and angry. Josh was supposed to help him, not to do thinking he should be alien. I dont like character of Josh very much. Kyle is my favorite character in this show. He is so cute and hot. Nicole did comfort Kyle to not give up searching for his memories. Nicole did right thing she did. I dislike Lori lot. I am so focused on Kyle and Declan. They are both hot and cute.moreless

    for me, this is the most interesting episode from this season, it had everything you want to find in a good chapter, it had funny scenes, drama scenes, it had suspense and it had some touching momments, the scene of the thunder was so unexpected for me and the scene with the ouija board was very interesting too, here we get all the crew in the same place at the same time, it was very well acted, this episode diserves a ten with no questions.

  • Bits of Kyle's memories return

    While the family celebrates a birthday, Kyle wishes he had one to celebrate. It is with this wish that it's known that Kyle really just wants to blend in and not stand out so much. He wants to be accepted! He demonstrates human feelings for he is human (?) and bits of memory come back. Strange numbers for instance.

    Kyle gets his human feelings hurt when he is mocked so he seeks solace from Amanda - in his tub of all places! It was a pretty emotional show with much left to wonder if Kyle is human and how badly he wants his memories. I have a feeling once he regains them he is not going to be happy about them.moreless
  • Happy Birthday Kyle.

    It's true what they said about Kyle having to start fresh with his memories and life, while others are trying to forget theirs or hold on to old memories. I feel sorry for Kyle every episode, because he's such a lost soul. With no answers to any questions, and more questions popping up every day. It's nice to see Amanada growing closer to him, what happened to her boyfriend? He does seem like a nice guy, so it kind of sucks for him when she goes for Kyle (hoping that of course). It's nice to see the family accept him more than a guest.moreless
  • This is one of the best shows I have seen in a long time.

    Kyle had a nightmare based on the memory of the rain. He believed that an unknown man was standing outside his window, however when we went to his window he found Declan with blood on his forehead. Today is Lori's birthday, and Kyle is upset he can not remember his own. The thunderstorm takes out the electricity and Stephen goes outside to check the box when he does, he finds footprints outside Kyle's window and blood on the window. Since no one wants to talk, Lori brings board games down to the living room. They find Josh's porn stash in the box for the spirit board. Kyle asks the "spirit realm" when his birthday is and he got the number 781227. The rain stops and everyone goes outside until Kyle tells everyone to go back in and pulls Declan in barely being missed by a random lightning bolt hitting a flower pot. The electricity comes back on and Kyle begins searching online for what the number could possibly mean. Tom comes to the Trager's to deliver news about the footprints found outside the window; there was a car accident last night, no one was hurt but the other person fled the scene. Overhearing his information, Lori discovers that Declan is the one that fled the scene. It's time for cake! Lori has asked Kyle if they could share birthdays at least until he remembers when his birthday is. Kyle makes a wish, flash goes the camera, and instantly his birthday wish happens, Amanda kisses Kyle on the cheek, giving Kyle new hope that anything is possible.

    Matthew performed a marvelous task, portraying his knowledge, emotion, uncertainty and frustration. The English teacher I had my senior year in high school gave the class the assignment to make scrapbook involving items that were important to us. Five years later, I have continued making my scrapbook including friends, family, graduations, birthdays, holidays, and children. I have even started a separate scrapbook for vacations, a scrapbook for each country. I don't want to forget anything.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (8)

    • This episode is the first where we see the house number where the Tragers live: 1903.

    • Goof: When Declan, Amanda, Lori, and Josh are sitting in the hallway talking, the first shot of Lori shows her sitting at the door to Josh's room and the second shows a different room behind her (one with a hardwood floor, a polka-dotted box, and a chest).

    • Nitpick: Declan climbs into Kyle's room through the window, then when he needs to sneak out, Lori takes him through the house. Why does she risk getting caught if he can just climb back out the window?

    • Nitpick: No one noticed that Declan was dry after supposedly coming in out of the rain.

    • Goof: The electricity was out when Josh heard the doorbell ringing.

    • Goof: When Kyle notices the newspaper picture of the missing professor at the end of the episode, you will notice, if you pause it, that the text in the newspaper article is just the same couple of paragraphs repeating over and over.

    • Goof: The drawing Amanda pins back on the board changes when the camera angle changes.

    • Trivia: The game that Josh and Declan play is Kameo: Elements of Power.

  • QUOTES (16)

    • Nicole: By the way, Lori's not a virgin anymore.
      Stephen: You segue to that?!
      Nicole: Thought I'd rip the bandage off quickly.

    • Nicole: Where's Declan?
      Lori: Geeking out with Josh. Put a guy in front of a video game and there goes half his personality.
      Nicole: Well, try growing up in the Pink Floyd era and replace video games with pot.

    • Kyle: (narrating) Birthdays, baby pictures, blueberry pancakes. They were talking about memories and traditions... but I had none of my own.

    • Kyle: (to Josh) This is fun for you! Everyone around you gets a kick out of it... but this notebook, this is the only thing I know about my entire life!

    • Amanda: (to Kyle) I think you should get out of the tub... you're wallowing.

    • Amanda: The power is out at my house... and I didn't wanna be home alone, so I thought I come over here.
      Kyle: Where's Charlie?
      Amanda: At his house.
      Kyle: Why didn't you go over there?
      Amanda: I guess, I just wanted to come over here.

    • Amanda: (talking to Kyle as she holds her locket) But see the rest of us, as we grow up, memories get dimmer. And we try anything we can to stop them from disappearing completely. If you ask me, you got the better deal.

    • Kyle: (to the board game) When's my birthday?
      Lori: Kyle, you know it's just a game.
      Declan: For twelve year-olds.
      Josh: Hey, if anyone can get a Ouija board to work, it's him.

    • Kyle: Thank you.
      Amanda: For what?
      Kyle: For making me feel better. You make me feel like there's hope.

    • Lori: Do you know what you're gonna wish for? Don't say it out loud or it won't come true. It's another birthday tradition.
      Kyle: That doesn't make any sense.
      Lori: You're right, screw it.

    • (On the phone about Kyle)
      Thomas: We've got a problem. He's starting to remember.

    • Kyle: Let's play.
      Josh: It's totally fake Kyle.
      Kyle: I don't care.
      (Amanda tries to grab the game but Josh starts to walk away.)
      Josh: No! Seriously, find another game!
      Lori: Josh…
      (Lori tries to take the game from him and porn spills out everywhere.)
      Lori: It looks like the spirits are total pervs!
      Declan: One word dude, internet.

    • Kyle: What are you doing?
      Amanda: I'm gonna wallow with you.
      (Amanda sits down in the tub with Kyle and they stare at each other.)
      Kyle: This is strange.
      Amanda: Yep!

    • Declan: Seriously, what's your deal?
      Lori: I'm just feeling particularly friendless right now, makes celebrating another year of life sort of bleak.
      Declan: I'm your friend, kind of, I think?
      Lori: Yeah, after you duped me into losing my virginity!

    • Kyle: Don't worry Lori, the average life span for the American woman is 79.2 years, if you were Japanese you would have a few more years but, it's still not so bad.
      Lori: Whose idea was it to let him read the encyclopedia?

    • Kyle: If your birthday means you are one year older, doesn't that mean we're celebrating one year closer to death?
      Stephen: Well, that's one way to look at it.
      Lori: I think I just lost my appetite.
