  • Samantha finds out she's a stalker and gets closer to her father.

    It was nice to see Samantha's father have more to do in this episode as he is often outshone by Regina, Samantha's mother. Their bonding at the end was really nice. The stalking Nathan stuff was reasonably funny and there were one or two nice moments with Todd. Dena was also good with the scene's in her car. I loved where she shouted to the person in front to speed it up as she was driving a heap of crap, what was his excuse. This episode was certainly better than last week's. I hope this is a sign that this show will really pick up and improve from now on.moreless
  • Why is OLD Samantha a stalker?

    This episode really reveal something about Old Samantha. I would never thought she was a stalker. I thought she just use people and get rid of them if she has no use for them. She didnt care about people feeling but care if they dont pay attention. really mess up!

    the jealous thingy with Todd was kind of cute. i hope Todd realize He love new samantha soon. they look cute together. i like the father and daugther bonding stuff. the father should realize samantha was trying really hard to understand him. wish they change the doorman. he really has no unique character.

    hope it will get better....moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Samantha: So, like I was saying, you learn a new thing every day. Today I learned that you never know how one thing will affect another. If I hadn't run into Nathan, I never would have gotten closer with my dad. Hm. I betNathan would find that interesting. I should call him.

    • Todd: So, all the crying was about a bad haircut.
      Samantha: Obviously you haven't had a bad haircut.
      Todd: Sure. I just put on a hat.
      Samantha: We're not even the same species.

    • Howard: (to Samantha) I'm not a talker, okay? That's why I married your mother. She does enough talking for the both of us.

    • Samantha: The only reason that I came hunting is so that we could talk.
      Howard: That's why I go hunting, because nobody talks.

    • Regina: You've never been hunting in your whole life. You'll shoot your leg off. Good luck getting married.
      Samantha: No but I've been practising. And I bought this pretty new rifle. And I went to the gun range and then last night I watched this movie called 'The Deer Hunter'. Which really wasn't very helpful at all.

    • Samantha: How do you eyeball a thousand feet?
      Dena: Fourteen telegraph poles.

    • Samantha: The thing about amnesia is that you learn something new every day. Like just last week I learned that it's really a bad idea to sit behind me on a rollercoaster. So anyway a couple of days ago I was trying to learn my favorite ice cream.

    • Samantha: Okay, first of all, I'm not dating Todd, and second of all, I'm not chasing him, I just tracked him down to tell him, that I'm not stalking him.
      Regina: I'm never getting grand kids, am I?

    • Sam: There is not an amnesia strong enough to erase the memory of last week's Tai Chi exercises.
      Regina: I told you, I thought it was supposed to be done naked. How long do I have to keep apologizing?

    • Dena: Speed it up, old man! I'm driving a piece of crap, what's your excuse?!

    • Sam: I can't believe you, Andrea. How could you not tell about this? I mean, you call me at midnight to tell me to get my eyebrows waxed, but my restraining order just, like, slips your mind?!

    • Sam: Is it our song?
      Todd: No. We, we didn't have a song. Every time I suggested one, you laughed at me and asked me if I was on my period.

    • Andrea: Forgetting things we shouldn't remember is why God invented amnesia... and tequila.
