Strange Days at Blake Holsey High

Season 2 Episode 8


Aired Saturday 12:30 PM Dec 13, 2003 on NBC



  • Trivia

    • Lucas said that he found a whole box of the Pearadyne computer chips in his and Marshall's room, why did they all go into the basement to look at a box of the chips?

    • When Principal Durst goes to return Marshall's cell phone and finds both phones missing, when did she confiscate them? She gave Tyler's phone to Professor Z and Marshall kept his phone, then they reversed the encryption code on Marshall. The giving of both phones to Principal Durst was not seen and doesn't seem to fit correctly with timing. If it occurred when Marshall was telling Principal Durst the truth, Victor would have had no chance to take the phones.

    • Marshall shrugs when asked what site he got the computer code from but was able to correctly tell them the internet path later when they were in his room.
