But when Curtis is sick of Phil he decides to fix Phil's room and live there instead. ok this was pretty funny with him changing in his room and everyone walking in, but when he moves to the garage it all becomes serious until he drops his blankie and lloyd reaches for his...that was funny...the party wasn't that great until keely said what are teenagers going to do in the dark..hello make out comes to mind..but it was an ok episode...i was mad that i was so excited for it and then it almost wasn't worth the waitmoreless
  • A great storyline, but possibly over the heads of most of the audience. Something you had to relate to to appreciate. For once, an episode devoid of romance and soap opera.moreless

    I had a feeling this would get bad reviews. Most of them center on the fact that there\'s no Keely/Phil moments. Sorry guys. You\'re getting an entire season of it, and not all of it is well done.



    My background with this episode? I\'ve been in college for 3 months. I too had to deal with parents not giving me privacy and wanting to be out on my own, having parties (and a roommate like Curtis... haha) and stuff. I can relate SO much, half of the dialogue could have been cribbed from my life as it is. The whole episode worked right in the house too.



    Curtis knew a little too much english in this episode (come on, floor joists?) but he needed to act like a present-day human for his part to work. Again, Manoux\'s delivery is dead-on working with Ricky Ullman. Too many great lines to count (\"Pim dig hole and leave house. Pim grounded. Bad Pim!\" \"Pim no scare Curtis. Ok. Curtis scared a little.\") easily Curtis\' best part.



    Alyson? Yeah. Probably like 2 minutes of screen time. She looked amazing. That\'s a given. This just wasn\'t about her though. She played the role of the sympathetic best friend, tossed in a good line or two (\"what can a bunch of teenagers do alone in a dark garage with no parental supervision?\") and that\'s it. This was good for the Diffy family characters. It wasn\'t going to be a half hour makeout session in Phil\'s new garage. Sorry.



    It\'s hard to say exactly why this episode hit me like it did. Probably because Ricky (as both an out-of-character person and as Phil) is easy to relate to, and I could see myself in that role. Especially the part about wanting to come back after money got tight and life got boring in the new house. For once we actually get to see Pim and Phil work together, and it all works out without being cheesy. No, we\'re no closer to Mrs. Keely Diffy after this episode but at least there are more characters to fall back on.



    You KNOW you laughed every time the Diffys pronounced \"char-AHHHH-dds\" too.moreless

  • I'm sorry but I just didn't like this episode and I hope it's not a sign of things to come. If you appreciate honest reviews, you would atleast please read this. Click disagree if you choose.moreless

    Okay, this entire episode seemed out-of-character. I don't know what the writers were thinking, but this episode was so pointless that it can't even be considered a filler!



    Okay for starters, Barb- after finally making a return- just acted ridiculous in this episode. The first time she got hysterical was semi-funny, but after that it quickly became annoying and so very unlike her usual mature motherly wisdom.



    And Pim just really wasn't Pim except for a few moments here and there. And I personally found her whole "I miss my brother" spill way to overdone (and if Barb had been in-character, she would have figured out something was up!).



    As for Curtis, he seemed smarter than usual. I've heard of fast-learners, but this episode was just a little silly when it comes to his part.



    And what? Lloyd suddenly learns how to use parent pshycology in the middle of season 2?



    Keely, Keely, Keely. What to say-she didn't even seem connected to Phil! She was "just there". You have a new garage let's throw a house-warming party...we're going home. Uh...can we say boring. No Pheely whatsoever.



    And so then we come to Phil. He was simply a jerk in this episode, there's no way around it. Where I come from, privacy or no privacy, you don't treat your parents like that...it's rude and a sign that you're not mature.



    Which is exactly the problem of this entire episode. They kept pushing that Phil wasn't a "liitle boy" anymore, but he acted more like a little kid than he did in Maybe-Sitting! I guess someone kept his cjild-like immaturity after being zapped with the Wizard. This episode was a waste of DVR space.

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Goof: When Phil puts his shirt over the CPU to change, he leaves the door wide open.

    • Goof: In the episode Dinner Time, Pim states that the home in which they live is a four bedroom. Therefore, in this episode, either Lloyd should have been storing his parts in the extra bedroom, or Phil could have moved into this supposed extra bedroom instead of the garage.

    • Goof: When the electricity goes off during the party, Phil is telling Bruno that it's Phil he's touching, not Keely. However, you can clearly see that Bruno's hand never moved from Keely's shoulder, and his other hand was still holding a sandwich.
