  • Micheal quickly finds, loses, and recovers a job

    9.5
    I call this episode "Silly" because it was, but it was silly in the best way possible. The opening sequence with Micheal's interview was pretty hilarious and showed him at his best. I like his character development as he learns to care about what he does to other people and tries to get Steve's job back after stealing the Snapple. I also really enjoyed how the metacon story line developed over this season so I think this episode was definitely worth it. The Max/Liz drama in this episode was a little too melodramatic and corny in this episode, but they made up for that in the last episode. Overall this episode was a good second episode that sets up the next episode quite nicely.moreless
  • Michael gets a new job and after getting everyone fired he tries to get everyone's job back by exposing a thief.

    Those of you who watch Alias and Lost will instantly recognize Terry O'Quinn who plays the FBI agent in Alias and Locke on Lost. Also I think one Michael's new friend from his job plays the Mexican in the oscar winning movie ''Crash''.



    While the previous episodes started the story arc about Max's father investigating him, this episodes starts the one regarding Liz being under strict rules by her father. She can't see, talk to or get close to Max. Of course, she doesn't listen to him and keeps seeing Max.



    There is also a new story arc starting in this episode. One which I never understood why it was put there. Probably to give the Valentis a purpose in season 3. But the thing is, they could have found something else. Now Jim Valenti is a country singer. Lame.



    This episode has classic line in it. When Michael gets everyone fired, he makes up some lousy plan to make up for what he did. He tells about it to Max and he answers him ''That's not a plan, that's not even an idea, it's something you put in your mind and think of something... better'' hahaha.moreless

    • TRIVIA: At the beginning of the episode, Kyle is seen drinking Newman's Own pink lemonade.

    • TRIVIA: Featured music in this episode -

    • Michael stated that he got the job at Meta-Chem so that he could pay his electric bill - he even said "How can you shut off my power, you only sent me 4 notices!". So how come his refrigerator works, how can he keep the Snapple cold, and how does the light come on when Maria opens it to show Michael she knows that he was the thief?

    • Why would Max risk people seeing the alien moving on the wall of the Crashdown?

    • The amount of Snapple stolen changes several times - the boss says it was several cases but later Michael only says it was one case. When Maria takes one out to drink, it's not sealed in its case but later when Michael goes to return it, it's sealed up in a case despite the fact that Maria took one out!

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Liz: Dear Max, It's so horrible and so unjust to have to pass you in school and wonder if some teacher's gonna call my father. No matter how hard my parents try nothing can keep us apart. I love you and even when I can't see you in the day I see you at night in my dreams. I have been, dreaming about you that is, over and over it's you and me holding handds and flying through the night. I know it sounds corny but it isn't it is amazing like Superman and Lois Lane in the first movie. You know, the good one.

    • Isabel: If you tell anyone I will be forced to use my formidable alien powers on you!
      Kyle: Cool, cool. My day's not fully complete until I've been threatened by an alien.

    • Steve: You're a crazy bastard. You know that?
      Michael: Welcome to my world.

    • Mr. Valenti: Kyle, I'm sorry.
      Kyle: Dad, don't apologize. That's not even what I want.

    • Max: Michael, what you're about to do is not a plan. It's not an idea. It's something you think about in your mind, and then you come up with something... better.

    • Michael: I mean, why should I worry about it? If he takes it upon himself to marry someone and then knock her up before he's got a decent job, how is that my problem?
      Max: It isn't.
      Michael: So why do I feel like this?
      Max: Like what?
      Michael: I don't know.
      Max: Like you care?

    • Max: Oh, sorry. Bad time? Is this some deranged sex thing?
      Michael: I got a job.
      Max: Security guard?

    • Max: I need a place to crash for a couple days, until I figure something else out.
      Michael: So, how does the Chevelle figure into this? Do I get driving privileges?
      Max: Yes, Michael.
      Michael: The couch is yours.
