  • Sadie is torn between going to Africa for the summer, or staying in Whitby with all her friends. They stage an intervention and convince her to go. Rain learns how much Taylor likes him, and Hal agrees to go on a cheesy vacation with his parents!moreless

    This episode was the most amazing of the whole series!! I totally loved it. Taylor was so funny, and I like how she finally made Rain see that she was crazy about him. I also thought it was really cool that Arden realized how nice a person Sadie is. Arden may be super popular, but she doesn't really have any true friends the way Sadie does.

    But the absolute best part was BEN! I'm so glad he and Sadie got back together AND he convinced her to go to Africa. I was crying so much when he told the story about his mom! He's the best boyfriend ever. I couldn't believe when they revealed that Sadie was actually IN Africa at the end. You totally think she's at camp for the whole episode until the final shot with the elephant. It was so beautiful! This show is the best EVER. It's way better than all those other shows on Family Channel. I want to go watch all the old episodes now!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • For the final scene of the series, there was only one African elephant available. There were two Asian elephants, but they have different ears and a true animal fan would have noticed the difference.

  • QUOTES (1)

  • NOTES (1)

    • To get the final shot where Sadie looks at all her friends and family who want her to go to Africa, the wall of the living room was cut open so the camera could get the shot. The crew knew they would never use the set again, so they didn't mind wrecking it.


    • When Ben says to Sadie "Hooray for Sadie Hawthorne, the African Explorer," it is an allusion to Groucho Marx saying "Hooray for Captain Spaulding, The African explorer."

    • When Rain tells Sadie she's going to regret not going to Africa "Maybe not tomorrow..." it's an allusion to the Bogart film Casablanca.

    • When Taylor says "dips his paddle in the water and row" to Rain, it is an allusion to the Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall movie To Have and Have Not.
