    [spoilers]

    I did not know exactly what to expect when I began to watch this show, and I had no prior information on it other than that Milo Ventimiglia and Allison Mack was among it's cast. The show did a good job introducing each character, and letting us know his or her personality. It was interesting that Jed decided to take a chance going to the military school, even though we all knew he was going to stay at Evergreen. I also liked the fact that they mislead us about Miranda's intentions with Jed, and the notes. I appreciate the fact that she will act as a "big sister" instead of a love interest for the remainder of the show, or at least I assume so.

    The I will Survive number performed by the boys had the exact amount of charisma and comedy to be believable. It showed a different side to the boys, and also showed that they weren't afraid.

    There is obviously something between Jed and Kate, which sets up the romance portion of the show. Overall, it was a good pilot and I look forward to the rest of the show.moreless

    • Jed: And this school? Oh please, it is so not equipped for boys.
      Ms. Gibson: (laughs) Now can I say something?
      Jed: No. You promised.
      Ms. Gibson: I know, but it's my job. And you know what, I'm new here, too.
      Jed: Well it's a little easier for you. I mean, you're ... a female. I mean, I'm assuming.
      Ms. Gibson: (taken aback) Yeah. Yes, I am.

    • Phil: So, how many did you get?
      Cary: About 20.
      Phil: 20 signatures, that's great!
      Cary: Oh, the petition. Oh, no dude, no one'll sign it. She was giving me her phone number.

    • Stella: You could apologize for ruining this school. You could apologize for trampling on one hundred years of tradition. Tradition that my great-grandmother, grandmother, and mother all struggled to uphold.
      Jed: Listen, I didn't-
      Stella: No, you listen. You think you can come in here and change everything. You think that as a male, you have some sort of Manifest Destiny to conquer every last bastion of strong femininity left in this world. Well let me tell you something-
      Jed: No, let me tell you something!
      Stella: No, I was gonna tell you something.
      Jed: Well, I don't care because I'm gonna tell you something. Goodbye. (walks away)

    • Jed: Rob, that is supposed to be my bedroom. Okay, I have not even slept in the room like one night and you have already nailed a chick in there!
      Rob: I am sorry, okay, man. I am so sorry. It won't happen again.

    • Cary: Right, my grandmother, my mom, all my sisters. All went here when it was all girls.
      Jed: You're like an Evergreen legacy.
      Cary: How do you think I got in? I mean, my middle school grades weren't exactly-
      Phil: Good?
      Cary: Definitely not good. I was gonna say passing.

    • Colonel: Do you have some sort of a problem, Mr. Perry? Are you a wiseacre?
      Jed: Wiseacre? Uh, maybe. I'm not really familiar with the term.
      Colonel: Oh, well then please allow me to define that for you. (gets in Jed's face) YOU.
