  • A great reverse episode

    The funniest thing about this episode was that something Earl did in his pre-Karma days turned someone for the better and now, he turns her back to a heartless b word.

    The whole concept was not only a great twist but also brought up some very funny moments involving Randy blowing out prayer candles and stating that nuns would be good at basketball.

    The god prank was terrific and a classic Earl scene that shows his funloving side that he has lost some of since his Karma shift and the ending was very entertaining with the slingshot and another uncomfortable silence between Earl and Randy.moreless
  • Earl looks to cross off No.12,Made a lady think I was God,the lady at his tralier park,who became a nun,and when Earl tells her,it actually makes her quit.So Earl has to find a way to bring her back.After many attempts,somehow he pulls it off.moreless

    Another terrific episode,featuring a guest appearance from Roseanne Barr as the trailer park lady.This is one time that Earls confessing actually makes things worse.Much of the humor comes out of Earl and the gangs attempts to steer Millie Banks,the trailer lady back to the convent,after she becomes meaner than ever.Its actually great to see Roseanne back on sit-com TV,in a wonderful performance.This is an episode that deals in spiritual issues in a way that isnt too obvious.I think thats one of things I like about this show,that it handles relationships with a sense of humanity,but doesnt do it in a corny way.I like the relationship between Millie the nun and the little girl.The Millie Banks character is one I think would be interesting to bring back.moreless
  • This episode involved Earl being God somehow,and Roseanne as a nun.

    This episode is one of the best episodes of this season! A lot of jokes and Roseanne made this episode a knockout,and a classic! I didn't classify it as a 'series classic',but I did classify it as 'above average'. And,that's definitely the truth.

    This season of My Name Is Earl has been pretty good,and the episodes haven't been too bad,but with this episode,Earl was...well,Earl,and the show was a success.

    Why? For many reasons. Starting with,the jokes. The whole 'I Love You' running joke was hilarious and jokes like this should be in EVERY SINGLE episode of My Name Is Earl. This is what makes the series funny and unique and just overall funny.

    Roseanne's guest spot. I mean,Roseanne is hilarious (and she's also a domestic goddess) and she just had a big (and funny) part in this episode (and why it was so great).

    I know people might say that Van Hickey was a better episode,but I think this one was a little better (honestly). I didn't hate that episode,but I dunno,maybe the whole Ralph thing grossed me out.

    Anwyays,in conclusion,great episode and drop dead hilarious,as well!moreless

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Orphan girl: You threw out my birthday cake!
      Millie: Oh, like you've never eaten out of a trash can before.
      Orphan girl: Is there anyone on your list who wants a daughter?

    • Joy: I know how to burn a Jesus face in a grilled cheese, Earl!

    • Earl: It was a reflective area and we weren't allowed to talk to each other. So Randy couldn't tell me when he got distracted by the most beautiful room he'd ever seen. [Randy walks into a room filled with small candles] We later learned that they were prayer candles, not birthday wish candles. Luckily, before blowing them out, he wished for everyones' prayers to come true.

    • Randy: I bet nuns are awesome basketball players, especially the ones who can fly.

    • Catalina: When I was a child there was a man who lived in a box by the dump who told me he was God.
      Earl: How old were you when you realised, he was just a crazy old homeless guy?
      Catalina: Please don't talk about God that way.

    • Earl: We got to Henderson late, 'cause Randy turned the directions into a paper airplane to see if it would lift the car off the ground. It didn't, and we lost the directions.

  • NOTES (2)


    • Randy: I bet nuns are awesome basketball players, especially the ones who can fly.

      This is an allusion to a sitcom, The Flying Nun, from the 1960s. The main character in the series, a nun, had the ability to fly which was attributed to the wind, her small stature, and the cornette she wore on her head.

    • Earl: (voice over) We quickly found that with great power came great responsibility…

      Earl paraphrases a famous phrase from the stories of the Amazing Spider-Man. After his beloved Uncle Ben was killed by a thief Peter Parker could have easily stopped only minutes earlier, Peter Parker takes his uncle's last words to him to heart, fighting criminals in the back alleys of New York City.
