  • The best and funniest episode so far!

    James Conroy, Tawni's ex-boyfriend, asks Sonny out. But, Tawni and Chad shows up and ruin their date. Tawni says she is only trying to protect Sonny from James, because he dumped her. Then when James sees Tawni angry, he think she is hot again and dumps Sonny. Tawni goes on a fake date with James, (but James believes it's real), and Sonny goes on a fake date with Chad, to make James jealous. This episode was clearly the best episodes so far. I laughed very often and Kelly Blatz was a great guest star. I give this 10 out of 10.moreless
  • Chad + Sonny = Love ¢¾

    This is one of the best episodes! I love this show specifically for Chad and Sonny and their "romance". Even though Chad and Sonny arent exactly crushing on each other you can tell there is something there based on this episode. Chad tells Sonny to put her head on his shoulder, he calls her cute, she "kisses" him, and he admits they make a cute couple "hypothetically". I am so excited for any episodes that involve them two and romance! Its like addicting! I am dying to see the prom episode and the one called "Heartbreak Kids". Basically, Chad and Sonny complete this show! Oh, and Nico, Grady, and Tawni are also hysterical! Zora... eh. But overall, its amazing! :Dmoreless

    That date was SOOOOO not FAKE!!!! Hand holding, arm cuddling, head on his neck, laughing, she even STROKED his NOSE!!!! They SOOO like each other...

    Sterling looks so cute with Demi, they HAVE to go out in real life, BTW does anyone know if Demi is going out with Joe Jonas, or as I like to call him... one of THEM...Or i she going out with anyone else? Whatever, if she is, she has to DUMP HIM and go out with Sterling... Or mabye not, she is lucky enough WITHOUT going out with a yummy like Sterling.

    I talk to much.moreless

This episode is full of comedy and romance between all the characters. This is one of my favorite Sonny with a Chance episodes. Love it!!!!!moreless
  • Sonny gets asked out by bad boy bank robbing actor James Conroy. Tawni and Chad try to sabotage their date, ending up with a sad Sonny and Tawni, who was right. Now, Chad and Sonny go fake dating to make James jealous.moreless

    This was the best episode of the series. It should be obvious for any Chad and Sonny supporter, where it started out with a flustered Sonny going on a date with James Conroy. Tawni knew every move the bad boy made, which was freaky at first. She then told Chad about the date. He got all shocked and lied to Tawni's face when she said that she knew he didn't want her to date his guest star in his show. It was totally funny, outrageous, and had plenty of Channy moments. The part I will forever love will be when Grady and Nico ruined Sonny's fake date to get James' attention so she can dump him up close! The confusion ended up with a "fake kiss" to the star of Mackenzie Falls. It was lovely to see Chad's face. This was the best episode EVER!!moreless
