    My favorite part of this episode is, yes . . . Lance Tankman. That's a name that could just stick. LOL. Well, anyways. Pim runs in this contest to be president for the day. So, she desides to make a film how Lance, well. Neil Hackett. And, she becomes princable for life. Phil does not like this so, he desides to stop it. Phil dicuses himself as Pim with the wizard. And, he does an interview with Keely. And, Phil says how bad Pim is and, end Pim's reign. And, it works. So, Neil's back in the saddel. YE-HAW!



    Final Score: A-moreless

    This is probably one of the best episodes. Also it was very funny and Pim I think is the best so a episode all about her gets my approval. I like how Pim thinks of skeems to himiluate who brother and stuff. But it got kinda unrealistic with the people believing what Mr.Hacket was saying over the tv. I think the only bad thing I could think of is that at times it is unrealistic but most phils of the futures are lie that and that lil D helped them becuase probably in real life Pim would not just let him leave she would find a way to keep him so that he dosn't tell her plan to phil and keely.moreless

  • It was pretty good.

    This episode definitely wasn't my favorite, but it was funny seeing Pim get this far in her world-domination plans. There was a little Pheely interaction going on, but not as much as I'd like. I love how Keely kept insisting that Phil was "Mr. Fuzzy Bear." What is the most hilarious thing, tho, is the code name Phil chooses for himself in the end: Dash Unicorn. I have a guy friend that is totally like that and thinks unicorns are manly, fierce creatures. I just found it to be funny that my friend thinks like Phil! Anyway, if you like Pim's wicked personality, you'll love this episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • When Keely is talking about Pim's first 100 hours, she is referring to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his first 100 days where he passed 15 pieces of legislature.

    • Goof: At the beginning of the episode, Keely is doing the news report and she ends up with a lot of sawdust in her hair. A little bit later, the sawdust is gone, but it comes back by the end of the scene.

    • Goof: When Pim gets locked in an empty classroom, you see her ex-right hand man lock the door with a key form the outside. Later, as she sees "herself" on tv, she becomes mad and uses the Wizard to open the door (though in a different way). As she does and opens the door you can briefly but clearly see a deadbolt lock that she would have used to unlock the door, and even then much earlier.

    • When reading off the duties of Principal for a Day, Keely mentions that the student will be allowed to choose the items for the lunch menu. She then makes the comment: "Please nothing with the word sloppy in it." This is a reference to an earlier episode, The Giggle in which she doesn't like sloppy joes.

    • The codenames in this episode were as follows: Keely was "White Panther", Mr. Hackett was "Lance Tankman", and Phil was "Midnight Cobra," although Keely suggested "Mr. Fuzzybear" for Phil.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Phil: (Yelling over the shop class noise) THE WHOLE REPORT IS THREE MINUTES! CAN'T YOU WAIT?!

    • (Phil and Keely tell Ex-Vice Principal Hackett that they have a plan that involves humiliating the newly elected Principal Pim.)
      Mr. Hackett: Ooh, good plan. What do I do?
      Phil: Absolutely nothing. Just look the other way and promises us we won't get detention when it's all over.
      Mr. Hackett: Show me the other way, I'll look it. Deal. Now what's this "Fuzzy Bear"?
      Phil: Resistance code names. (Under his breath and gesturing to Keely)
      Phil: Not my department.
      Mr. Hackett: Ooh! Code names! I want one.
      Phil: You don't need one.
      Mr. Hackett: I wanna be Lance Tankman.
      Phil: You don't do anything.
      Mr. Hackett: (Whining) Lance Tankman!
      Phil: Ok. Yeah. You're, uh, ahem...Lance Tankman.
      Mr. Hackett: Yeah. I'm Lance Tankman.
      Keely: I'm scared.

    • Phil: Alright, next question. "This debate hurls corn". That's not a question.

    • Lil' Danny: Pim, this hurts me inside.
      Pim: I'm going to hurt your outsides!

    • Keely: It was fun being in the resistance, what else can we resist?
      Phil: Uhh how about "Fish Stick Friday" in the cafeteria?
      Keely: Perfect! But we're going to need entirely new code names.
      Phil: All right, but this time I get to pick. All right you can be Kitten Velor, And I'll be Dash Unicorn.
      (Keely laughs)
      Keely: Okay.
      Phil: Wait, wait no....
      Keely: Nope too late.
      Phil: Dash Manly?

    • (Phil and Keely enter an empty room)
      Keely: Is everyone here?
      Phil: Yes (flips on the lights)
      (Keely looks around at the empty room)
      Phil: We are now the resistance. We keep everything secret and we figure out a way to break Pim down. Now the first thing we need is....
      Keely: Code names! Yeah....
      Phil: I was going to say we need a plan but yeah would can do code names........alright we'll call you white panther.
      Keely: That is so me! Oh! And you can be Mr. Fuzzy Bear.
      Phil: I give you a name like white panther and I get Fuzzy Bear? I don't think so, call me....call me....midnight cobra.
      Keely: Okay....okay midnight whatever. ha (whispers)...Fuzzy Bear.
