  • Sexual healing... weird episode title huh? It reflects well this weird episode.

    Ok in this episode be ready to watch 40 minutes of smooching. FROM EVERYONE. Max and Liz, Alex and Isabel and Michael and Maria. Although in the case of Max and Liz all this smooching actually leads somewhere. Liz has visions when she kisses Max and it leads them to discover a special stone that will help them later.



    In the case of Maria and Michael, it's just funny when Maria tells him ''I faked it'' but talking about the visions and not... something else.



    And the Alex and Isabel scene is just hilarious. ''Let's kiss so I might get more information about where Max is''



    And Alex's big answer: ''uh ok''



    haha.



    It's a good episode but there is a bit too much smooching to my liking. I mean it was even worse than a soap opera at some point.moreless
  • Decent, more of a setup to future episodes.

    The little tidbits we get shown episode to episode seems to get better and better as the season progresses. In this episode we get to see a new alien artifact. The purpose has yet to be revealed but we do get to the possibility of what the young aliens have been searching for, the fourth alien. You can tell Maria is getting jealous of the level Max and Liz has risen compared to hers and Michael's. She does try to remedy the situation but with unexpected results. While this episode does have a few revealing moments you can tell something big is coming up very soon. Just don't when.moreless
  • Fleeting images that Liz sees whenever she kisses Max lead the couple to a radio tower where they discover an otherwordly metallic orb.

    It is a really good episode and quite an intense one at that. Max and Liz start getting really close in this episode and goodness knows what would have happened if Maria hadn't walked in at that point. One of the funniest bits had to be when the school principal was trying to explain to both Liz and Max's mum what an eraser room and one of them says so they were cleaning erasers when this happened and the principal says no they were doing what we used to call "making out" it is so funny. Thanks to the visions Liz has been getting they are lead one step closer to finding out where Max, Isabel and Michael come from. This episode we find out what Liz's fantasy is about and what Max thinks when he accidently finds out what her fantasy is.moreless
  • Michael: Listen, Maxwell. You're a sensitive guy and you have available to you one of the top three seduction lines in history with 'It's going to help me find my home planet'. And you're refusing to use it. No guy is that sensitive. Use itmoreless

    I like this episode but I still find it a little awkward to watch. The first scene with the strawberries is really hot and I love how the steam raises up in the room. It is nice to see Liz and Max for a moment just being teenagers and not being so serious which quickly changes as she gets her flashes that could help the aliens find out more about themselves. Micheal and Maria are a little heartbreaking in this episode as she has to fake it because he won't open himself to her. Alex and Isabel were also cute as he tries to get her to try out this new thing. I recently watched this episode with the commentary from the actresses who play Liz and Maria and it was hilarious and made me enjoy this episode a lot more.moreless
  • A very hot episode!

    Max and Liz can´t resist their feelings and kiss each other all the time.

    This episode is hot, and Max and Liz have very intense scenes, as for example the scene of the strawberries where Max and Liz don´t resist and they make out in the kitchen of the Crashdown. I love this episode because Max and Liz have a great chemistry and always it´s good to see them together...besides,Max appears without shirt!!!and he is really HOT !moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • When Max and Liz got back from the desert they were talking in Max's jeep outside the UFO center, across the street from the Crashdown. They continued to talk as they walked across the street and over to the Crashdown. When they walked into the Crashdown their parents seemed shocked to see them. This makes no sense though because the parents were looking for Max and Liz - there's no way none of them looked out the window at all during all that time Max and Liz were outside.

    • When Liz and Max are first seen sleeping and the shadow moves over them, the stone they found is smooth side up and the symbol is not visible. In the next shot of the pair when they wake up, the symbol on the stone is now clearly shown.

    • When Max and Liz are in the back of the Crashdown kissing, in one scene his hair is flat, the next it's ruffled, the next it's flat, the next it's ruffled, and this continues.

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Alex: Liz, what's goin' on?
      Liz: Alex, the most incredible thing is happening to me, but I-I don't even know what it is.
      Alex: What?

    • Michael: Ok. We're leaving now. But I have some Chaka Khan queued up on the CD player.

    • Michael: Listen, Maxwell. You're a sensitive guy and you have available to you one of the top three seduction lines in history with 'It's going to help me find my home planet'. And you're refusing to use it. No guy is that sensitive. Use it.

    • Isabel: Do you have a juicer?
      Michael: Isabel, you're pushing it.

    • Mr. Seligman: You are an excellent student, Miss Parker. I'd hate to see anything get between you and the... uh... beauty of the universe.

    • Alex: In the interests of science, kissing being purported to invoke…insights, I wanted to, you know, offer myself as a human subject available for experimentation.
      Isabel: Not gonna happen, Alex.
      Alex: Right, right. Thought I'd give it a shot.

    • Michael: Did she see anyone else on the ship, like our parents?
      Isabel: Yeah, like Captain Kirk and the Klingons?

    • Maria: I have never seen her like this.
      Alex: So this was like the kiss of the millennium?
      Maria: Alex, if they actually do it, she'll probably explode.
      Alex: Or maybe she'll explode if they don't do it.

    • Liz: If you know so much, then tell me, Max, what's my destiny?
      Max: I only know the part I'm hoping for.

    • Liz: What are you doin' here, Max?
      Max: Well, I have orders from my planet to take over the Earth.
      Liz: Besides that.
