  • The Class Eats Moroccan Chicken is the 15th Episode in the first series of The Class, and while it was filled to the rim with comedy, there was one thing in particular that put me off it.moreless

    The title refers to how Lina and Richie are throwing their first dinner party together where Lina makes Moroccan Chicken. I found the banter between the cast hilarious but the only problem was it seemed too much like the episode of Friends where Rachel makes the desert and it doesn't go right and no-one tells her. I love The Class but this episode just reminded me of that particular Friends Episode already which made me disappointed. If it wasn't for the Kat and Ben storyline and the abundance of comedy going on underneath it then I don't think it would have been worth the watch. Even though it seems like a copy, it was still an enjoyable episode.

  • Lina and Richie have a dinner party for there friends.

    I thought that this was a really funny episode and i felt really bad for that chicken. Why would Lina do that to a perfectly good meat. What did the chicken ever do to her? I thought that it was a nice jesture that she wanted to make dinner for her friends but i think she should have choose something that she knew how to make. It was really funny that Richie did not tell her that the chicken was really bad until after Lina had tried to get him to eat some after everyone left. It was funny that Nicole and Yonk were dieting and Nicole gave him such a hard time about sticking to the diet but she was the first one to break it.moreless

    Seriously. Yet again, another amazing episode. It seems like every week the episodes get better and better. It's just fantastic. Richie/Lina: Hilarious. The whole chicken story was so funny. Richie's faces crack me up. After everyone left and Lina made him eat, I laughed so hard when he said "It's funny, as it cools the flavors intensify."

    And they having their first "fight"... they actually stopped in the middle of it because it was a huge thing for their relationship! RICHIE: "What do we do now, do we have to finish it?"

    LINA: "I think we should, we kinda need to get through it to ge to the uh... make up sex." Nicole/Duncan: SO HILARIOUS how they made the whole 'sneaking around to eat hot dogs' thing sound like a cheat on Yonk. It looked like he had walked in and caught Nicole and Duncan doing it. And of course, Nicole's "I like it sweet and hot!" didn't help it. Kat/Ethan: Aww. That's all I got. No, lie. But aw. It was so sweet. They're like, such good friends, helping each other with their relationships, and yet bickering and a little jealous... That scene where they were both sitting in front of Kat's door was the sweetest thing. ETHAN: "I want you to have Morocco."

    KAT: "Why do you care?"

    ETHAN: "I care."

    Also, it's nice to see Kat's vulnerable side. I'm curious to where they're heading this.moreless
  • This show is just so funny! I love these characters!

    As with every episode I got my dose of laughter with this one. My favorite story line in this episode was Duncan and Nicole's. Nicole is on a very strict diet to be supportive of her husband whose collesterol is high. But she craves everything she sees and it's hillarious to watch. My second favorite one was Lina and Richie, who had their firts fight as boyfriend and girlfriend and actually were happy about it. They crack me up!! And there was also Lina's sister whose new realtionship is going pretty good, but I have a feeling that somehow that's going to change pretty soon since he found all the pictures that she had taken of him while stalking him. Can't wait for the next episode!moreless
  • wait..there's a tumor.

    It's really good to see that each episode shows a closer bond between these classmates. Kat is afraid that her relationship wont last, because she believes something bad always happens but Ethan convinces her to have faith. Lina decides to invite everybody over for a party dinner as she serves some "delicious" Moroccan chicken. Richie, being a nice guy as he is, tries to spare her feelings, by saying the chicken was good and all, but eventually got fed up and told Lina the truth. This marks their first fight, and both of them are so happy about their accomplishment. Nicole tries to support her husband by eating healthier, after she finds out Yonk has a cholesterol count over 400. When Nicole is caught scarfing down a steak, it sounds like they are having an argument as if Nicole had cheated on Yonk.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • In the scene where Kat sneaks back into bed with Benjamin, there is a goof with her boot; he hands her the boot, saying that he knew she'd be back. Kat tosses it over the side of the bed, but when the camera angle changes, the boot is back, sitting on the covers in front of her. The camera angle changes again, and the boot is gone; it goes back to the second angle, and the boot reappears.

      Richie: I guess! So... what do we do now, do we have to finish it?

      Nicole: Okay. And I want you to have fun too. But remember, healthy choices.
      Yonk: Oh come on, I mean we're going to a steakhouse! I beat Jerry at pool, he has to buy me steak.
      Nicole: Well, I'm sure he wouldn't mind buying you a nice piece of salmon.
      Jerry Rice: I'll be happy to buy the little lady a salmon.
      Yonk: Man...I'm never gonna hear the end of it.
      Nicole: No that's not true. Jerry, please! This is about my husband's health.
      Jerry Rice: I'm sorry.
      Nicole: Thank you.
      Jerry Rice:(to Yonk) Now remember, this one is on me. So you don't have to bring your purse.

    • Ethan:(about the pictures Kat took of Benjamin when she was stalking him) So, I assume you haven't shown [Benjamin] these.
      Kat: Dude, I'm creepy, I'm not stupid.

    • (Duncan's phone rings; he answers it; it is Nicole)
      Duncan: Hello?
      Nicole: Hey, you left your cell phone at my house.
      Duncan: Oh, thank God, when I saw my name on the caller ID, I thought it was like me calling from the future. So wha'cha doin'?
      Nicole: Just eating a stupid salad. Almost makes me wish I'd eaten that chicken at Lina's.
      Duncan: Woman, you do not know what you're saying.

    • (Duncan is talking to Jerry Rice; his phone rings)
      Duncan: Sorry, it's my mom. She's not going to believe who I'm talking to. (he answers the phone) Ma, guess who I'm with. (he hands the phone to Jerry Rice) If you could just say hi.
      Jerry Rice: How you doing?
      Duncan: Guess who that was! No, no, no, why are you guessing dead people? (to Rice) Just tell her who you are.
      Jerry Rice: I'm Jerry Rice. No, that's not a hint. (to Duncan) She's still guessing.

    • Duncan: Hey, whose Ferrari is in the driveway?
      Nicole: Oh, it's Jerry Rice's. He and Yonk are working on some speech for a charity thing they're doing.
      Duncan: Hold on, Jerry Rice is here?
      Nicole: Yeah.
      Duncan: So you and I are under the same roof as Jerry Rice?
      Nicole: Yes.
      Duncan: So, like, if this place fell down on us, then I would be trapped under the same rubble as Jerry Rice?
      Nicole: Yeah, but they'd probably rescue him first.
      Duncan: I would want them too!

    • Lina: Can we borrow your coffee maker?
      Kat: Okay.

    • (Lina is serving her dish)
      Nicole: Is there cream in it?
      Lina: A little bit.
      Nicole: Oh shoot, Yonk and I are on these strict diets, I'm sorry.
      Lina: Oh, No, No, No, No, it's OK. Duncan, more for you.
      (Duncan looks at Nicole with an evil look)

    • Lina: Duncan, you're a big guy so you get a big piece.
      Duncan: It's not my fault I'm big. What is this orange thing?
      Lina: It's a kind of sweet potato, it's a North African tuber.
      Ethan: There's tumors in this?
      Lina: No, tuber, like a yam.
      Ethan: Oh. Tumors made sense.

    • Nicole: Oh great, also if you're going to throw the rest of it out, when you put it in the garbage can you make sure it touches other garbage.
      Richie: What?
      Nicole: Well yeah 'cos if I'm lying in bed tonight and I know that there's pizza that's in the garbage that's only touched the box, I'M GONNA EAT THAT SON OF A BI**H!!!

    • Nicole: (To Richie and Duncan) If I have a craving for a french fry, I can just reach for a carrot stick, it's like a healthy french fry that makes you mad.

    • Nicole: Yonk and I are on this really strict diet. His cholesterol is up to almost 400.
      Duncan: Is that high?
      Richie: Not for a couple.

    • (after getting Lina's Moroccan chicken)
      Palmer: What am I tasting?
      Ethan: Ahm. Tires a la Socks.
      Kat: (To Benjamin) Did she say Moroccan chicken or Morotten chicken?

    • Duncan: (To Benjamin) This is so cool. I met two famous people in the same day. Jerry Rice and whoever you are.

    • (Duncan and Nicole are eating food; Nicole eats like she's mad; Yonk catches them)
      Yonk: Oh my God!
      Nicole: (while chewing) I can explain.
      Yonk: In my own house?
      Nicole: This isn't what it looks like. (still chewing)

    • (Duncan and Richie are eating pizza, Nicole enters the house)
      Nicole: Hey guys! Oh, pizza!
      Duncan: Yeah, it's from that new place in Villanova. They've got extra cheese in the crust.
      Nicole: Oh that's great. Could you get it the hell out of here?

    • Richie: (on how bad Lina's moroccan chicken tasted) It was the Hitler of all chicken!

    • (After Palmer leaves)
      Ethan: So, so he wants to take you to Morocco and you want to go.
      Kat: Yeah.
      (Ethan touches his chin, pretending to be thoughtful)
      Ethan: I can see why you're so upset...
      Kat: Just because you want Morocco, doesn't mean you get Morocco.
      (Ethan frowns)
      Kat: Let's be realistic, something's gonna screw this up, so I don't wanna set myself up for Morocco if it's never gonna happen.
      Ethan: Well, I can guarantee you it's never gonna happen.
      Kat: Why?
      Ethan: Why?? You sneak out on the guy in the middle of the night? It kinda sends a message.
      (Kat closes her eyes and sits down on the floor, in front of her door, defeated)
      Kat: God, I'm so messed up.
      Ethan: You really are.
      (Kat glares at him, then stares at the ceiling)
      Kat: I just... I just don't want to be Lina.
      Ethan: What do you mean?
      Kat: She's always like "Oh, I'm so in love, he's the one!" and then two weeks later her heart is getting its ass kicked.
      Ethan: Yeah, I don't know if you've noticed, but... your sister's heart is doing just fine. I mean, she had to go through some stuff, but it seems worth it. She's with a guy who loves her, even though she does unspeakable things to chicken.
      Kat: Yeah, I guess...
      (They stay in silence for a moment)
      Ethan: (Watching her) I want you to have Morocco.
      Kat: (Looks at him) Why do you care?
      Ethan: I... care.
