    Numb and Numb-er is a really funny episode. It was very good too. If it wasn't good I wouldn't be rating it a 10. :P Anyways, this episode is about Cory needing to go to the dentist and Raven has a vision that he will need a filling. Cory is scared of the dentist, and doesn't want to go, but Raven has to make sure he goes. When they get there, Raven gets checked first and the dentist says that she may be a filling and he'll be right back. Raven is scared too and they dress up as dentists. At the end, it turns out that Raven has the filling, not Cory.moreless

    It is great that they did not name the episode like Dentist okay that is great!! Well it was numb because of the scene where she got the injection called nuvicane or novicane on the other hand the commercials were funny!!! All the ideas are perfect to make a sitcom the script by Victor and Chelsea and Eddie with the close-ups and all that ha ha ha!!!

    Cory is very afraid to go to the dentist, but Raven has a vision and it's her thats getting the cavitie. This episode was good, because Cory knew that he wasn't scared of the dentist until he got his teeth checked.

    Numb and Numb-er was a very funyny episode that the fact is that it is indeed my favourite episode of the season because it was funny.



    Jessie was a very good character and her character reminds me of my yellow softtoy whale, Jessie! What a coincidence eh? I really liked Raven's attempts to get away from the dentist and my favourite scene is the one when she numbed her leg!



    The subplot, with Victor, Chelsea and Eddie was indeed very silly and whenever I laugh, I get an astmatic attack! My favourite ad was Chelsea's one because I liked the way they said "AT..... the Chill Grill!"



    Overall, ths episode is really funny, but if you see it for more than 100 times, the episode loses its funny.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • While Raven is on the floor, Jessie reaches for the mirror twice before saying she loves her hair.

    • Victor says that he doesn'tt know when Tanya is getting back because Cory erased it from the calendar, but that is a one day calendar. So, it would be safe to assume that she coming back that day. Plus, if he didn't know, he could've just called her.

      Also, there isn't anything on the calendar that says when Tanya is getting back.

    • Raven wears the same outfit that she wore in Leave It to Diva.

    • While Raven and Cory are at the dentist's office, Raven's necklace disappears and reappears between shots.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Raven: I am Dr. Think-n-Fast. And this is my associate Dr. Do-as-I-say. (to Cory) Do as I say!

    • Dr. Horn: All Right! Cory? Do you mind if I take Raven first?
      Cory: No. Go nuts.
      Dr. Horn: I'll b right back. I need to get a bigger drill bit.
      Raven: Right! A bigger drill bit. Because the bigger, the better, doctor! (locks the door and blocks it)
      Cory: What are you doing? Dr. Horn can't get back in!
      Raven: Exactly! Nobody's gonna be drillin' my grill, please!

    • Dr. Horn: Say it with me, I think I can, I think I can.
      Cory: I don't think I can, I don't think I can.
      Raven: I think you better.
      Cory: Okay. Okay.

    • Dr. Horn: Well it usually helps if the patient can see someone else being examined.
      Raven: Really?
      Dr. Horn: Yeah, someone close to them.
      Raven: Interesting.
      Dr. Horn: Uh-uh. Often a blood relative.
      Raven: Hmm. Do tell.
      Dr. Horn: A sister.
      Raven: I see.
      Dr. Horn: Named 'Raven'.
      Raven: Ya lost me!

    • Cory: You're being nice to me. Dad, she's freaking me out again!

    • Chelsea: So what do you guys think? Oh, but before you tell me I think you should know: when faced with rejection I go to my sad place.
      Eddie: Well start packing and take this with you.

    • Chelsea: Eddie, whose idea was worse?
      Eddie: Well, if it makes y'all feel any better, both of yours stank the same.

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (4)

    • The scene where Raven sticks herself with the Novocaine needle and her leg goes numb is probably an homage to a famous sketch performed by Tim Conway and Harvey Korman on the Carol Burnett Show. In the sketch, Tim Conway (portraying a dentist) accidentally injects himself with Novocaine multiple times and tries to keep working on his patient with a numb hand, leg, and by the end, a numb forehead.

    • Dr. Horn: Just say "I think I can, I think I can."


      This a line said by the main character in the popular children's book The Little Engine That Could.

    • In Chelsea's idea for the Chill Grill commercial, Eddie's character is named Blaize. Blaize is the name of Raven-Symoné's brother.

    • The episode title Numb and Numb-er, is a spoof of the movie, Dumb and Dumber.
