  • Great!

    Tamera is afraid of going to college. She wants to stay safe in her bed for the rest of her life. She is thinking about failing so she can stay in high school. She dozes off and dreams of the historical black figures throughout history like Harriet Tubman and Jackie Robinson. She decides to go to college and take the final exam for history.

    This was a greatp episode! I actually didn't notice that Tyreke was Jackie Robinson and that Diavian was Harriet Tubman. I also didn't recognize Steven as the patient. This episode gets a 9.5 out of 10!moreless

  • QUOTES (8)

    • (Tamera's flying with Betsy Coleman)
      Tamera: So when'd you get your license?
      Betsy Coleman: I haven't.
      Tamera: WHAT?!
      Betsy Coleman: Whoever heard of a colored woman with a license?
      Tamera: You could go to Paris!
      Betsy Coleman: What?
      Tamera: Paris!
      Betsy Coleman: What?
      Tamera: You could go to France and get your license. You'd go down in history as the first black woman to get her pilot's license and you'd be a star!

    • Jordan: I wonder if I would've had the courage to do what they did.
      Tamera: Please.
      Jordan: What?
      Tamera: We can't be like them. Now Harriet Tubman, she was extraordinary.
      Tia: So what're you saying, just because they were extraordinary, they weren't human beings? Just because they were extraordinary they were never afraid, never doubted themselves?

    • Jackie Robinson: Can't always stay where it's safe, you've got to move on.

    • Tamera: Just be plain old Tamera Campbell.
      Martin: And just be plain old Martin King.
      Tamera: Marting Luther King?
      Martin: No, that's my dad, I'm Martin Luther King Jr.
      Tamera: Boy, you gotta go to college!
      Martin: Wait a minute, why is it I have to go to college and not you?
      Tamera: Because, I'm not gonna have a national holiday named after me.
      Martin: Yeah right, in my dreams.
      Tamera: That's right, Martin, because of your dreams.

    • Tamera: You can't just give up, if you'd done that, the African-Americans wouldn't have this hospital.
      Dr. Daniel Hale Williams: African-Americans? That does have a nice ring to it.

    • Diavian: Girl, that attitude's gonna come back to haunt you.

    • Tamera: (reading the TV schedule) A "Happy Days" see if Richie Cunningham can stay in high school for 10 years, so can I.
      Tia: Aren't you going to study for your finals?
      Tamera: And miss seeing the Fonz get a library card?

    • Tamera: (Not wanting to go to college) I just want to stay under the covers of my bed and be a kid for the rest of my life.
      Tia: I just have on thing to say to you, move over. (She joins Tamera under the covers.)
