    The Personal Gravitators are introduced in this episode.

    Phil turns out to have terrible penmanship, as in the future, everything is done on computers. Due to this, he is sent to the 2nd grade after making Tanner Kirkpatrick (from Your Cheatin Heart) look rather foolish on camera. Tanner is angry about this, and gets a video of Phil in the 2nd grade, courtesy of his brother Crash. Phil learns from his dad that as long as he can laugh at himself, things won't seem so bad. The clip is shown the next day, and Phil doesn't let it bother him. While there was good writing, I'm having trouble trying to decipher any deeper meaning the show may have had.

    Meanwhile, Pim is more human than she thought as her conscience, in Debbie's form, keeps bothering her. This was a rather funny part of the episode... Debbie's chicken suit was just priceless.

    All in all, the writing saved the episode, due to the lack of any critical elements we've come to love in our PotF eppies.moreless
