    The second season is not as good as the first, but this episode REALLY shines!

    Barbara Jean from Reba appears in this episode as the Guidance Counselor, and she is HILLARIOUS!!!

    Goth counselor is my fave! "Magic Pyramid, will i smash you into pieces?...i guess it was wrong!" SMASH!!!

    Magic Pyramid!haha! i gotta go find my Magic 8-Ball!

    And the cafeteria lady can also read CORN, not just beans.

    And that evil boy from 5th grade is back...as a leperchaun.

    F is for FARTS!...which alludes to the 2nd segment of this episode:

    And, is that the SAME Toot-Toot from Season 1? he REALLY got older! but, who can resist fart-humour??moreless

    this episode being close to the season finale shows alot about wats going to happen in the season finale. its a funny and yet not so entertaining episode but if u like this show its good to see. the only thing i would say to do if u see this episode you must be able to hear it clearly, because if you do it\\\'ll reveal alot a very very important thing in the show. heres a clue hear what Ned and the lunchlady are talking about and here when he asks her to \\\"Read his corn!!!!!!!!!!\\\" this is very important.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Foreshadow: In "Failing" when Ned asks the lunch lady to read his corn, she predicts that he will kiss his true love at an upcoming dance. Ned kisses Moze (who he ends up with at the end of the series) at the school's dance in "Double Dating".

    • Moze said that she never failed in her life even though she failed on purpose in "Cheaters / Bullies" so Bitsy can stop cheating.

    • In Failing the guidance counselor dressed as a goth kid says to the magic pyramid "Am I going to smash you into a million pieces?" The pyramid replies NO and she says "You're wrong," and throws it into the ground. But the pyramid was right she only broke it into about ten pieces.

    • Timmy Toot-Toot talks for the first time in this episode.

    • When Moze leaves after Jock tries to ask her out, he puts his arm on Ned's shoulder. Ned says, "I'd love to say and chat, but I'm off to meet my new tutor." The angle changes as he's saying this. Right before the shot changes to show the two of them standing there (instead of mostly showing Ned), you see Ned's arm go up to take Jock's arm off his shoulder. When it switches angles though, Ned's arms are down, then he reaches across and moves Jock's arm with his other arm.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Vice Principal Crubbs: (to Ned and Mr. Sweeney) Timmy exploded and the backblast is heading this way. (Crubbs leaves).
      Mr. Sweeney: (to Ned) We'll start tomorrow! Run!

    • Jock: (about ugly Moze to Ned) Isn't she beautiful, (sees weird look on Ned's face) on the inside. Cause her face was disgusting. Plus she forgot to shave this morning.
