    This is another Halloween episode that is funny. We are never completely sure whether there really is a curse or not, but with all of the bad accidents that have happened you can't help but wonder. The theme of the whole episode is about bonding. We see two of the oppisete sex factions bonding in their own rather unusal ways or circumstances. From the boys whom are hillariously engaged in fraternity like rituals to the point where it starts to get downright deadly when their final test is to cut the nose hair off of Ug. The results aren't pritty but hey they were all in it, all the way to the bitter end. But the real story is on the girls themselves who all bond when forced to spend the night in a cave when a storm hits, they all find out things they never knew about one another and aprreciate each other more.moreless
