  • Blatent car ad thinly disguised as a TV episode.

    I know networks need to incorporate ads into TV shows since viewers like to fast-forward through commercials, but this is ridiculous. This entire episode, even the title of it!, is an ad for GMC's Terrain. The plot was thin and easy to figure out, which makes it frustrating when supposedly smart main characters can't see it as quickly. Even the subplot was unsatisfying since Ariel can't just give this girl rides to school forever - her mom needed turned in for driving while under the influence. The solution to just have the girl avoid getting in the car with her mom doesn't do much for anyone her mom might run over.... A disappointing episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Allison is driving in the rental car, right after getting off the phone with Joe she pulls up to a red light in the center lane (next to the left turn lane). When the light turns green Allison goes straight through the intersection, but the car behind her turns left.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Ariel: Onomatopoeia.
      Bridgette: What a dumb word.
      Ariel: I didn't ask you to judge it. I asked you to spell it.
      Bridgette: Well, that doesn't change the fact that it's a dumb word. I mean, you gotta wonder what was going on in the room the day they needed to make up that word. (Ariel chuckles)
      Marie: Is there really a room where they do that?
      Bridgette: There's got to be, right?

    • Allison: (on the phone with Joe) I'm talking to you through the car speakers.
      Joe: That's actually called Bluetooth, Al. It's been around for years. Listen, um, I don't wanna freak you out, but the buttons on the car door -- they make the windows go up and down.
      Allison: You're very funny. You're very comical.

    • Lee: (talking about Wilkes' possible accomplice) I don't have a name, and I don't have an address, and unless you can tell me where to locate her, I'm sorry, but I just can't see us bringing a case against this guy. We still friends?
      Allison: Not so sure about that.
