  • A series of messages left by Adam Baylin gets Kyle curious.

    Right from the beginning of this episode, I could tell that this was going to be a good one. Josh is talking with Kyle about girls and dating, when suddenly, Andy pops along and says the following: "remember this moment". Kyle has a vision and sees three objects (a fishbowl, a postcard and a book). Words in another language are written on the postcard. However, for once, Kyle does not understand it. When his vision is over, he turns towards the door, where Jessi has just entered. Next, Kyle turns over to Josh and says, "something bad is about to happen". As soon as Kyle finishes his sentence, an earthquake hits the small coffee shop. Luckily, all of them are safe when it stops.

    Throughout the rest of the episode, Kyle goes over to Tom Foss, asking him questions about what the postcard really says. Foss doesn't know, either, so Kyle tries looking for himself.

    By the end of the episode, Kyle has another vision and remembers a moment when Adam Baylin told him to "remember this moment". As Baylin was telling Kyle that, he had a book in his had and Kyle had noticed that he had slipped a CD inside.

    The next day, Kyle finds the book that Baylin had placed the CD in. Much to his surprise, the CD remains inside of the book. Kyle quickly removes it and heads back home to play it on his computer.

    Strangely, the CD only plays some robotic language, but Kyle knows that Baylin wanted him to think harder. Spending another whole day of thinking, Kyle finally finds out how to play the CD: he must be under water.

    The CD plays a message-recording by Adam Baylin, congratulating him on getting this far. He tells Kyle that this is just a "simple test" and that things will get harder as he continues to seek his purpose.

    Kyle's next plan is to try and translate that the postcard is written in. After another day of working hard, Kyle manages to realize that the text is written in sound waves. As Kyle is working on translating it, he recieves a text message from Foss, saying that he "needs to get going and that they will meet again". When Kyle finally manages to translate the text, it reads "Don't Trust Foss". Kyle rushes over to the warehouse, where he expects Foss to be, but everything, including all of Foss' belongings have vanished. The episode then ends.

    In my opinion, I thought that this was one of the most creative Kyle XY episodes yet. It really had me thinking the entire episode, which is really the purpose of the show. Like most episodes of Kyle XY, it left off at a cliff-hanger, which is usually always a good thing, because it leaves the viewer asking questions. I'm really looking forward to the next episode. All of a sudden, this series is beginning to get interesting.moreless
  • Jessi and Kyle finally meet! Tom Foss is back in this episode after a 1 episode break.

    Well first off I liked Andy and Kyle's conversation about Josh. It totally blew my thought of her liking Josh. But later when Josh and her were in the car she started to flirt again. I like that couple and I think soon it might happen. Just my Kyle-sense. 8) Oh I can't wait Lori on Open Mic Night. Wow clever power. He can relive his memories. So 'Remember this moment' is all I have to say. Adam is very clever as well. He sent an under water message to Kyle. Wow Emily has a daughter. I didn't know that. Whoa! Declan and Jessi kissed. And Lori isn't that bad at singing. Oh wow. Don't Trust Foss. What a cliffhanger. Why would Foss be his bodygaurd if he doesn't trust him?moreless
  • Kyle and Amanda begin!!!

    I thought it was one of the best episodes i had seen of Kyle XY since the show started and i wanted to say thank you so much to who ever posted the name the song Amanda was listening to when Kyle showed up at her house, i spent a hour searching the net for the name of that song until i found this site! Kyle XY rocks! Peace Everyone.
  • another interesting episode of kyle xy! kyle learned about his new ability,vision of his memories which at first,he taught the visions were the future.

    i like this episode.there's nothing much to say but it did reveal some secrets and most importantly,adam bailen's message at the end about foss.this sure leads to greats upcoming events.

    i love josh and andy!seriously,they were really cute in this was very well written their storyline this fact,this was the most interesting pasrt of this week's episode in my opinion.they're really belong to each other.

    lori experienced a tragic moment this time.she was strong,true but she was still touched seeing daclyn and jessie together.nevertheless,this would make her even stronger and honestly,April Matson was really good doing lori's part!

    i don't have much to say about kyle's discovery of his new ability.sure it's interesting.they're really smart of bringing adam bailen in kyl's becomes more interesting.

    can't wait for next week!moreless
  • The show gets better and better.

    While I found the first season to be tedious and cheesy, the second season has definitely been more interesting. While the mythology is still kind of corny, it is much less predictable.

    I'm curious where the writers are taking this show with the Jessi and Stephen. While I don't really like Jessi, she certainly gives me the creeps, making me wonder whether she'll randomly strangle someone again. Stephen's new job is also exciting as we'll see how everything is going to collide soon.

    As far as the relationships go, I certainly adore Josh's the most. Andy is a fantastic character and the two actors have great chemistry. We all saw their relationship coming but it was still fun to watch.

    Next week we'll check in to see what Krycek...errr Foss... is up to!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goof: The message on the postcard reads "viz allati". Supposedly it means "under water" in Hungarian. However, in reality, it means "water animal-like", due to a spelling mistake.

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Amanda: (hands over a flyer) Lori, here, that was for you.
      Lori: Open Mic Night, I just started playing.
      Amanda: I've heard you, you're good.
      Lori: How do you know?
      Amanda: I live next door to you remember. I hear everything that comes out of your bedroom.
      Lori: Awesome.

    • Kyle: (about his visions) I don't know how much longer I can take this. I feel like I can't trust anything I see. (a mouse runs across a piano in an alley. Kyle looks at Foss, confused)
      Foss: No, that's real. And it's really out of tune.

    • Andy: (about Josh) I guarantee you, he brings up online gaming and he's a virgin 'til he's 30.
      Kyle: But you like online gaming.
      Andy: Yeah, well, he's not going on a date with me.
      Kyle: Sounds like he should be.
      Andy: Um… ew.

    • (Andy teaches Josh about dating.)
      Andy: Now, she's in the car, show me what you're gonna do.
      Josh: (disgusted) What? With you?
      Andy: Well, if you can't do it with me, how you gonna do it with a real girl?
      (Josh laughs sheepishly and Andy is suddenly embarrassed by what she just said.)
      Andy: I mean... you know what I mean.

    • Andy: Let me ask you a question. Why did you ask her out? It can't be just because of her boobs. (Josh doesn't answer.) Oh my God! It was!

    • Josh: You know, once you get past the smart ass remarks and references I have to Google to understand, she's...
      Kyle: Pretty great?
      Josh: Yeah.

    • (Kyle and Josh walk into the kitchen at home after a recent earthquake)
      Nicole: Hey, you guys okay?
      Josh: Awesome. Our little alien can predict the future. Huh, you should see the Rack, it's not the place I would call earthquake friendly.
      Nicole: Then what are you doing home?
      Josh: Checking out my ride for damage.
      Nicole: Well you should check your room; it looks like it was hit pretty hard.
      Josh: No, it was like that before.

    • Josh: Kyle. (Kyle awakes from his dream like state) You okay dude?
      (Jessi walks in and Kyle grunts in pain and holds his forehead)
      Josh: Kyle, you all right?
      Kyle: I feel like something bad is about to happen.
      (Kyle and Jessi's eyes meet and an earthquake occurs shortly after)
      Josh: (After the earthquake to Kyle) I got two words for you: lottery ticket.

    • (Talking to Kyle)
      Josh: It's a done deal, I'm scoring Dova Avena.
      Kyle: She looks nice.
      Josh: Kittens are nice, Dova's… Well hopefully she's not nice.
      Kyle: I thought you two were just study partners for biology lab.
      Josh: It may have started there, but I knew we were destined for more. You see Kyle, women are attracted to success, they can't resist it; and in high school, success means a car.
      (Andy laughs and joins in the conversation)
      Andy: Boys… Life is not like a rap video. Having a pimped out car doesn't guarantee your hand gets anywhere near her bra.
      Josh: (To Kyle sarcastically) If she wears one.
      Andy: What is with boys and breasts?
      (Andy and Josh look at Kyle who doesn't know how to answer)
      Josh: Don't side with her buddy, you're breaking a sacred bond.

    • Kyle: How's the date-training going?
      Andy: Let's just say I'm making the world safer for ovaries everywhere.

    • Andy: You're totally screwed.
      Josh: You're exaggerating.
      Andy: You couldn't be more screwed if you were between a wall and a Phillip's head.

    • Josh: And I'm in the middle of teaching Kyle about life and love here.
      Andy: Then I am thwarting a great injustice.

    • Kyle: People live much of their lives in uncertainty. What might happen in a week? A month? A year? I wondered about my own life. If I would be able to answer the questions that kept appearing. I guess I too was looking for certainty.

    • Foss: That phrase that you saw, 'Viz Allati'?
      Kyle: It's Hungarian. It means 'underwater'.
      Foss: You looked it up?
      Kyle: No, I just know it.
      Foss: Since when can you speak Hungarian?

    • Stephen: I remember my first time.
      Josh: Oh gross dad.
      Stephen: I mean date.
