  • A good filler!

    their is only a little Pheely and without giving to much away nothing happens. it will be interesting to see the response to this episode when it airs. It seems like a filler that leads up probly to the dramatic final 2 episodes of the season. it shall be interesting.
  • This has to be my favorite episode by far!

    This epi makes me feel so sorry for Phil (who just happens to be my favorite character). It must be so hard to keep a secret like this for so long. It's pretty cool that everyone reacted so well to it, too! I'd be pretty excited if I had met someone from the future, too..I guess!

    Watching Pim fail yet again never gets old. Definitely have to give her props for trying though! I found it amusing to find out that it was rather easy for Phil to gain popularity, whereas it seems much harder for Pim..sometimes!

    Then to find out it was all a least Phil learned to appreciate the small things in life, and that Keely will always be there for him!moreless
  • Phil is good at playing the harmonica! :)

    Phil is good at playing the harmonica, but I wonder how he practices. It was kinda funny how Keely tried to take the \'harmonica\' away from Phil. :) He seemed confused probably thinking to himself \"Give her what?\" It is also kinda cool when he plays it. It is also sad when he can\'t see Keely, and unfortunately, thats the only thing I like about the episode
  • I can't bear to see Keely sad! But you know, a bad ending, they have to get things back to normal some how...

    Overall, this was a great episode. I laughed throguhout the whole thing and if I laugh, it is good. I was disappointed though to see Phil wake up from a dream. I knew they had to get things normal some how, I just think it could've been more thought out. But if you had 30 minutes to live, I would suggest this episode, but it isn't a must-see. It's a love-it-hate-it type of episode. The love it, is more on the better side meaning it is better than it is worse.moreless
  • Phil tells the whole world he's from the future. Everyone starts to praise him and he never has time to hang out with Keely anymore. So the time keeper comes out for the third time and finally he gives in and lets her roll back time to before everyone knemoreless

    This eppisode of Phil of the Future was very very exciting. It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. It had very good acting as usual. Keely\'s (Alyson Michalka) hair syles were very awesome. And I loved her outfits. And with no surprise, Phil (Ricky Ullman) was looking very very hott!

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Goof: When the Time Keeper freezes time in the computer lab, you can see Mr. Hackett move slightly.

    • Goof: The Time Keeper appeared because Phil told Mr. Hackett he's from the future that's "the worst crime a time traveler can commit". So why didn't she come when Phil told Keely the same thing?

    • Goof: Phil and Lloyd are openly playing Laser Squash in the backyard even though they know Mr. Hackett could have very easily caught them in the act.

    • When Mr Hackett first wakes Phil up when he finds him sleeping on the couch in the AV Lab he says,"Sleeping on school property is against the rules Mr. Diffy. Ever since Seth Wossmer 'sleep-walked' into Miss Brickles health class..." He is referring to Seth who was in the first season but has now been replaced by Owen.

    • Goof: In this episode, Phil tells Keely to look back at the past two years. However, the Diffy's have only been in this centery for 10 months. That's not even a year.

  • NOTES (1)
