    In the episode before the finale, Nicole chooses Duncan over Yonk. This episode was so dramatic. I loved it!!! This episode was so well written and the plot was so wonderful. Benjamin was cheating on Kat! I didn't expect that. This episode was so amazing. This episode was so good and perfect for an episode before a series, or season, finale. I cannot believe that Yonk had a heart attack right when Nicole was leaving him. It was so dramatic. The writers are very creative and talented. They are what makes the show perfect, besides the actors. I believe that this episode was perfect, just like all the others.moreless
  • Nicole packs her stuff so she can leave Yonk and Ethan finds out that Kat's boyfriend has a secert.

    Oh my there was a lot of things of things happened in this episode that I really enjoyed. First I liked the parts of the episode where Yonk Duncan and Richie were and the resturaunt. All the thing that Richie was saying was really funny. I thought that it was really funny that Lina was helping Nicole pack her things she was too busy trying on Nicole's clothes. I felt really bad for Kat because she found out that the person who made her happy was seeing another girl. I thought that Ethan was a good friend to Kat for telling her the thruth.moreless
  • Nicole and Duncan plan to tell Yonk about them, as Kat realizes that she's being cheated on and Ethan is there to comfort her.

    This episode was great. Good enough to make me write my first review for this series. Its proof enough that this series is good that I haven't written one for a bad episode. Anyway, I can't believe the season is nearly over. This show is hilarious and witty- instead of just dumb like the comedies on NBC(with the exception of scrubs)- and this episode is evidence of this. I also like how it has just a tiny bit of drama, enough to make you keep watching week after week. This episode had the zingers, but it also had Kat getting her heart broken with Ethan there to comfort her, and Nicole making th tough decision to leave Yonk. I can't believe that just as Kat and Ethan are on the edge of getting together that its going to be over, at least for the season. i can't wait for those two to happen.moreless
  • I don't want his show to end!!

    Ok, the class is just getting better and better... It can't be finished! Just CAN'T! And I can't even do anything to help it, I don't live in the USA... but about this episode, was the funniest ever, well, all episodes of The Class are the funniest. But this one was also so sweet, with Kat and Ethan storyline. I hope Duncan and Nicole gets together soon, it will be hard now that Yonk had a heart attack, but I hope they can manage it! I love Nicole too, she is so funny, but I think I'm the only one that think that she is funny... And Richie, he is THE best! HAUHAHAHA

    I hope they don't cancel the show! Please!moreless
  • Amazing. Really.

    Amazing. Really. I loved the whole continuity thing. I mean, last week we had the "Ethan and Kat" and the "Nicole leaving Yonk" cliffhangers. It's so nice to see continuation to that. Richie and Lina didn't really play a major part on this episode. But Richie is SO hilarious. There wasn't any line he said that didn't make me laugh. And he riding that bull was so funny! He stood like what, one second on that thing? "What was my time?" Hilarious. And Lina helping Nicole pack and trying everything on was so funny! I love Lina. Kyle played a little part, but interesting, nonetheless. Loved how he said "Duh" when Ethan started to talk about Kat and him. It was also nice to see Kyle and Ethan's friendship have been growing closer. It's nice to see Kyle being something more than just the funny gay guy.

    About Duncan/Nicole/Yonk... wow. I knew there would be something that would "screw" the whole "Nicole leaving Yonk" thing. But a heart attack... I really didn't see it coming. I love how this series joins drama and comedy, and both work SO well. I can't wait to see what will happen next week. About Ethan/Kat/Benjamin... even though the main plot of this episode was the whole thing with Duncan, Nicole and Yonk, their participation was very important and developing. I mean, I wasn't expecting Benjamin to be cheating on Kat. And Ethan finding out was so funny. That kid was cute! He was a bit nasal, but still, cute. It was also very interesting how they played the scene between Ethan and Kyle, before Ethan found out about Susan. Interesting because Ethan was showing he still thinks the idea is crazy, but when he said "It doesn't matter anyway, she's with Benjamin", it was like "Yeah, not even if I wanted to, and I don't, really, it wouldn't matter, nothing would happen", which means he has been putting a lot of thought to it. And the first scene between Kat and Ethan was already fantastic. Ethan is truly afraid of her! It was hilarious! "Are you making this about you?" "NO!!!"

    It was also nice how the things were the opposite, on this episode. Last week, Ethan was "sad" because he had jus broken up with Palmer and Kat comforted him. This episode, Ethan wanted to comfort her as well, but when he opened his arms to hug Kat, and she walked towards him and crushed his fingers instead, saying "I don't need your pity hug.", which shows how proud she is, and how she doesn't like to let her feelings show. But it was so sweet how, after she broke up with Benjamin, she ran right to Ethan's place, and he opened the door and looked at Kat almost like he was already expecting her, then she just gave in and ran to his arms, starting to cry. That was incredibly sweet, and made me go all "Aaaaaaawwww!" Also, it was a very nice thing how they make the toothbrush a big thing: when she broke up with Benjamin she took her toothbrush away, saying "You don't get any part of me.". Then in the next scene she was standing in front of Ethan's door, holding the toothbrush, then she let him hug her, still holding a toothbrush - a "part of her". It was a very nice touch.

    I think there are a lot of cliffhangers now, a lot of things to be explained. - What will happen to Richie/Lina's relationship? Will Fern eventually find out Holly isn't really Richie's girlfriend? Will she find out it's Lina? And what will she do? - What will happen to Duncan and Nicole? Will Yonk's heart attack be enough to make Nicole change her mind? And what will Yonk do when he finds out why Nicole was packing for?

    - What will happen to Kat and Ethan, now? Will they finally admit they have feelings for each other or they will keep up with the whole "I'll annoy you to no end" act? I think those are a sign there must be a second season. There has to be. This series is just great.moreless

      Nicole: I'm a giver.
      Lina: Even your bras?

      Nicole: You can't have the top!
      Lina: What?
      Nicole: You can't have the top. Or the dress. The store is closed, thanks for shopping.

    • Kat: (takes toothbrush from Benjamin's bathroom) You don't get any part of me.

    • Kat: So listen dude, there's something that I want to do that I've never done before.
      Benjamin: Really, is it dirty?
      Kat: Easy there Benny Hill. Alright, so I've been staying over here a lot lately, right? (Benjamin nods) And I was thinking, instead of using your toothbrush (Benjamin gives her a funny look) ... which I have never, ever done, I thought, maybe it would be okay if I left this here? (she holds up her toothbrush)
      Benjamin: (sarcastically) Wow, this is big!
      Kat: Shut up, okay, it's big for me. (he nods) Alright, here we go. (she walks over to the toothbrush holder) Du du du du. (she attempts to put her toothbrush in the hole) It's too big, it won't fit in the hole! Hey, turns out it is dirty!

    • (Yonk walks into the house)
      Yonk: What in the hell happened here?
      Nicole: You're home early!
      Yonk: They canceled my meeting.
      Nicole: How come?
      Yonk: Seems the new Yonk Allen grill still has some flaws. One in every fifty blows up. One of the R&B guys lost an ear.
      Nicole: Oh my God.
      Yonk: That's okay, they made him a new little plastic one. Kind of looks like an apricot. You just want to pluck it off and pop it in your mouth. So what happened?
      Richie: We had a little leak, but it's under control.
      Yonk: Oh. Alright. Well I'm glad you boys are back, 'cause I thought Nic and I could take you out for a little goodbye lunch, you know, to thank you for all you've done.
      Duncan: That is so not necessary.
      Nicole: I think it's a good idea.
      Duncan: Really? The idea that he just said?
      Nicole: Yeah, only I can't go because I have stuff to do. But the three of you should definitely have lunch.
      Duncan: You sure about that?
      Nicole: Yeah, I really need to do this stuff.
      Duncan: Okay.
      Yonk: So, uh, what stuff you gotta do?
      Nicole: Uh, you know, lady stuff.
      Yonk: Don't want to hear nothing about that!
      Richie: Yes, it is disgusting to the man who was tempted to eat another man's ear.

    • Duncan: Hey Rich, why don't you finish tying up that rug and put it up against the wall.
      Richie: Right. You sure you don't need help with the standing around chatting? (Duncan and Nicole give him a funny look) Over the line? Okay.

    • (Yonk, Richie and Duncan are having dinner at a restaurant)
      Yonk: I'm away on business a lot, and it can get lonely for the little lady, so I just want to tell you how much I appreciate how much you've kept her company.
      Richie: It's our pleasure.
      Duncan: I wouldn't say pleasure, not pleasure.
      Yonk: Well, anyway, it means a lot to me. Nic's a real special girl. Of course, I don't have to tell you that.
      Duncan: 'Cuz I went out with her? That was high school. That's ancient history. Now I could take or leave her... not that I'd take her. I bet Rich likes her better than I do.
      Yonk: Oh really? Red, I gotta worry about you being around my wife?
      Richie: What? How did that happen?

    • Yonk: (About Nicole; to Duncan and Richie) I treasure that girl. She is absolutely everything... (Waitress passes by) Would you look at the snacks on that!

    • Kat: (About "Batman" underpants) It's hard to take a superhero seriously when he's covering a little boy's pee-pee.

    • Ethan: Hey, wanna hear something crazy? Palmer said she thinks I should be with Kat.
      Kyle: Well, duh!
      Ethan: Wait, what?
      Kyle: You and Kat. Duh!
      Ethan: What are you talking about?
      Kyle: I'm talking about "duh!"
      Ethan: We're not "duh" at all. We're just friends.
      Kyle: Do you find her attractive?
      Ethan: Well, yeah.
      Kyle: Have you pictured her naked?
      Ethan: I picture everyone naked! In my mind, I'm the only one with clothes on.
      Kyle: (about himself) Feeling a little exposed.
      Ethan: I meant "just women."
      Kyle: Feeling a little rejected.

    • Ethan: (About Ethan's possible-connection with Kat) Well, it doesn't matter anyway. Kat's with Bejamin.
      Kyle: That's true. Benjamin is great.
      Ethan: Picturing him naked?
      Kyle: NO! He's wearing a hat.

    • Kyle: Oh, hey, so, the breakup went OK?
      Ethan: Yeah. I'm gonna miss her. She was sweet.
      Kyle: And gorgeous.
      Ethan: I know! You know what's not fair? The whole time we went out, I didn't run into one guy I went to high school with.
      Kyle: You just took a lot of pictures!
      Ethan: Bought a new camera for it.

    • (Kyle enters Ethan's place)
      Ethan: Hey.
      Kyle: Hey. So, you ready to get your ass kicked?
      Ethan: You're the one who's gonna get spanked all over the court.
      Kyle: Oh yeah? By the time I'm done with you, you're gonna be crying to your momma.
      Ethan: Crying to mine, or nailing yours?
      Kyle: We're getting really good at this trash talk!

    • Nicole: (To Duncan; about leaving Yonk) Look, you're gonna have to face the fact that it may not work out between you and him.
      Duncan: I just, I don't know, I just, I feel really bad.
      Nicole: I do to!
      Duncan: Yonk and I are supposed to go to the Sixers game next week.
      Nicole: (sarcastically) You want me to hold off?
      Duncan: No, no, no, besides, they're only playing the Hornets.
      Nicole: What if it was the Lakers?
      Duncan: Why do that?

    • (Duncan and Nicole are talking about Yonk)
      Duncan: When does he come home?
      Nicole: Tonight.
      Duncan: You know what you're gonna say?
      Nicole: I've gotta tell him the truth. That I'm not happy. That I care about him. But... I love you.
      Duncan: Wow. (hugs her) Do you have to mention me?
      Nicole: What?
      Duncan: You know, like, the me part. Maybe not need to know that?
      Nicole: You're kind of a key component.
      Duncan: I know, but he's also my friend! There's no way to down-play it? Maybe I'm not the reason, I'm just in the mix?

    • Kat: You're going to be very proud of me.
      Ethan: Really? Were you nice to someone?

    • Richie: So, what's happening?
      Duncan: We've got to stall him.
      Richie: Stall him? What else can we do? I've already eaten a rodeo! Seriously, I'm burping hooves!

    • Nicole: He (Richie) doesn't know anything, right?
      Duncan: (scoffs) No. Can you imagine him with a secret like this?
      Nicole: Oh, God he'd explode. There'd be little orange bits of him all over!
