  • One of my favorite epoisode of Season 2 I watch it a lot on youtube.

    Ok, Mr. Hackett moves in next door and the Diffys invite him for dinner. Pim tries to sell the house. I thought this was an excellent episode of Phil of the Future. This episode prooves once again why this show was good great. There was a bunch of funny things about this like at the beginning when Mr. Hackett almost find out about Phil and his family being from the future. Pim trying to sell the house I found very funny. Curits's cameo appearance I found really funny. Probably the most laugh out loud moment is at the very ending you have to see the ending to find out why it was so funny. The scene toward the ending when Keeley accidently said " See you at lunch sweetie pie... I mean Phil." that part was cute and it prooves that Keely actually has feelings for Phil. The part when Mr. Hackett found out that they were from the future and they were gonna call the authorities and the time machine took them back 3 minutes ago and no one remember it except for the family. I did not see that coming!! Overall, one of my favorite episode of season 2. A one worth watching, 10/10.moreless
  • Mr. Hackett moves in next door and the Diffys invite him for dinner. Pim tries to sell the house.

    Mr. Hackett moves in next door and the Diffys invite him for dinner. Pim tries to sell the house. this episode is right up there with the first two of the is just as funny as both of them and as i have selected it is cleverly plotted..hackett catches the diffys using their future tools and is suspicious especially now that he's their neighbor...they invite him to dinner hoping it would be disaster free, but it is a complete disaster...they mess up on everything and tell hackett that they're from the future...luckily, the time goes back and they just take hackett out to dinner to avoid disaster...i love how keely and phil try to pretend to be phil's parents because it is hilarious especially when the parents come back...the whole cover-up thing is hilarious and it's cool that phil dresses like fonzie because that's my pic...but i want to watch this episode over and over againmoreless
  • Mr. Hackett moves next door!

    Just like how Cory had Mr. Feeny living next door to him (Boy Meets World), Phil has Mr. Hackett living next to him. This as obviously shown in this episode is not a good thing. Mr. Hackett sees Phil using a future gadget (aka the WZRD) and questions Phil. Not only does he end up seeing Phil use a future gadget but also Pim, and he heard Barbara ask Phil to clone her 20 lemons. So now they have to prove that they are a normal 21st century family. Now they have to have dinner with him. Very funny episode!moreless
  • Great episode!

    This was a very good episode. It turns out that Vice-Principal Hackett has moved in next door, and appears just in time to catch everyone with one future gadget or another. They want to prove to him that they are a regular family, and invite him to dinner. After he gets there, Lloyd and Barb get sucked into a time donut, and Phil and Keely hafta morph into Lloyd and Barb. A lot of subtle Pheely moments happen due to this (just a few funny little things). Meanwhile, Pim is trying to sell the house. Lloyd and Barb show up, making Hackett see double, and Phil and Keely hafta change back quick. They tell Hackett their secret, and he threatens to blab, just as the time vortex resets everything to just before Hackett shows up. Phil talks to Keely later, and she can't remember any of the goings-on that didn't really happen because of the time vortex, but she inadvertantly calls him "sweety pie", showing that she was still affected by what happened, and that perhaps she does like Phil. A wonderful episode helping to lead into a wonderful season!moreless
  • Summary on what, The episode? Well,ok, then. I missed some of it on a count of it,I basically just saw Pheely turn into Blyod(Barb and Llyod! lol) and I saw the ackward Pheely moments! Love!moreless

    I just LOVE this ep! I mean, it was soo funny and i give it a 9.4 because it only had minor Pheely(besides the ending) but I loved when Keely(barb) had that look on when Phil(Llyod) put his arm around her! Plus the ending is of course a given!Love !

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

    • When Phil (as Lloyd) offers Mr. Hackett some Shirley Temple, Hackett declines, saying that he wishes "to keep his wits about". But Shirley Temple is a non-alcoholic drink, so Hackett couldn't have possibly lost his "wits" from drinking that.

    • Goof: When Curtis told Phil and Keely that Barbara and Lloyd went to see the premiere of "Romeo and Juliet," Phil asked when they would be back, Curtis said there was an intermission. Back then, Shakespeare's plays never had an intermission.

    • Goof: At the end of the show, the time donut has dumped everyone back to just before Mr. Hackett shows up. However, the next time we see Curtis, he is still dressed from his trip to find Lloyd and Barbara.

    • Pim states that the Diffy's house has four bedrooms and two bathrooms.

    • Goof: When Curtis comes out from underneath the sink (where he was hiding for a hide-n-seek game that he and Phil were playing 3 days ago), you can see that there is no plumbing beneath the sink.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Keely: Guess what! I got us tickets to a sneak preview of "Samurai Love You".
      Phil : Ooh, Samurai-don't-think-so; it sounds like a chick-flick. I'm out.
      Keely: Come on, I went to that science fiction movie and sat through two and a half hours of you going "Wrong, wrong, wrong!"
      Phil: But it was all wrong!

    • Lloyd: Pim, let it go.
      Pim: Vice Principal is our next-door neighbor. I will NEVER let it go.

  • NOTES (0)


    • When Phil's outfit is changed to a leather jacket outfit, it resembles Fonzie's outfit from "Happy Days." Phil also makes the comment, "Whay are my thumbs up?" which refers to Fonzie again, since he is known for doing that gesture.
