  • Yet another great episode.

    Well, I must say that the amazing thing happened. Even though everyone thought the show would go downhill, every episodes seems to surprise me (and everyone else) even more. The show is becoming better.

    Besides great character development, and the fact that we finally saw "The Class" together again after the pilot, this episode was great. It had a great combination of comedy and drama, which I love about this show.

    Kat is amazing. Let's hope she never changes. Kyle and Ethan are becoming friends. Duncan, Nicole and Richie are all great friends and will become better as soon as possible. This also may include other characters. I love the fact that they are getting together, slowly.

    The show is improving amazingly. And I can't wait to see the next episode.moreless
  • This was probably my favorite episode of The Class so far.

    Between the long line of phone conversation, the bee, and the characters' different reactions to the woman who killed the bunny explanation of who Holly was, this was probably my favorite episode yet. I loved how all the characters got together at last. I was so sad after last episode about Richie and Lina breaking up, but then in this episode, I was so happy when they got back together. It was funny when Richie, Nicole, Duncan, and Holly were all in the car, and Holly was still reporting, and she kept putting a more intense spin on what was actually going on (i.e. Richie asking for a mint and Nicole not having one=demands not being met.)

    I also liked how Holly didn't explain right away why she wanted Richie's number, and then everyone finally figures it out and they have all these different reactions. I think it would have been funny if they had shown Fern like laughing or something while looking at a TV in the upper corner of a room at Lina's work.

    Also, I enjoyed everyone's reactions when they didn't know who Holly was, and she was always like I'm the person who killed the bunny with my show. Kat was like oh, that's awesome! And Richie was just totally appalled and shocked.

    This was just a really funny episode, and I bet there will be a lot more viewers next week.moreless
  • Good episode

    Now that this show has been on for a good half season, it seems to be taking off. It's becoming apparent how unhappy Richie is, and his accident due to the bee in the car was funny-but unlike the rest of the episodes, this one had a serious ending. Let's hope this series gets picked up for a second season-it seems to be moving in the right direction.
  • The Class is maturing with time and aging gracefully. I hope the Class doesn’t get expelled.

    I have said it before and I will continue to say it please anyone who gave up on this show before start tuning in now you will not regret it.

    The great blend of comedy and drama is portrayed once again in this episode, multiplied by ten with the whole cast now interacting with one another.

    The phone call scene was hilarious and really shows the potential this show has to offer from now on.

    I loved FRIENDS but it is nice to see a show that has a cast of people that aren’t best friends forever.

    Sometimes having people come together who don’t like each other can make for comedy gold as this show is beginning to prove.

    The ending was so touching and Holly was a lot more interesting in this episode showing us how she would do anything to get an exclusive.

    I hope that this episode gets people buzzing for more.moreless
  • After not bringing the cast together for the same story in the past several episodes they all come together after Richie crashes his car into a convenience store and refuses to come out so part of the gang goes in.moreless

    I have been questioning how this show could go on with 3 fairly separate story lines; they did manage to bring them all together last night through a car crash. I admit that I find the whole premise for the show interesting but I see that they are starting to head more towards a “Friends” like relationship for all of them. I did enjoy the interaction between Ethan (Jason Ritter) and Kyle (Sean Maguire) and I hope we see that more. The giddiness that they both showed about going to the scene of the accident was very funny and true to life. I also enjoy this episode as there weren’t very many scenes with Lina (Heather Goldenhersh) and she drives me up a wall.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • TRIVIA: In the end, when Lina comes to the store and Richie hugs her, she is wearing the same hat she wore in the first episode when they met, The Class Reunites.

    • TRIVIA: Lina is seen holding the trumpet Richie gave her in episode six, The Class Goes Trick or Treating.

    • TRIVIA: The car that Richie is driving is not the same one that was used in the first episode. This episode he drives a newer Ford Taurus. In the first episode, he was driving an older Mitsubishi Eclipse.

    • GOOF: In the end of the episode when Richie finally gets out of the car to meet Lina, you see Ethan attempting to put his arm around Kat's shoulders, after that, when the camera goes up you can clearly see that they are not in the same positions they were before. Ethan is now in the right and Kat in the center.

  • QUOTES (25)

    • (While Nicole is holding a pile of very tangled Christmas lights.)
      Duncan: You want a hand with that?
      Nicole: Yeah, sure.
      (Duncan spends a few moments staring at the lights and turning them around slowly, obviously puzzled.)
      Nicole: Or I could just do it.
      Duncan: Good enough.

    • Kyle (after he and Ethan see that Richie has run his car into a store): Hey, you wanna go down there?

      Ethan: I'm getting my coat!

    • Duncan: Hello
      Ethan: (on phone) Duncan! Hi. This is Ethan Haas.
      Duncan: Hey man! (to Nicole) Nicole, it's Ethan Haas.
      Nicole: (at the Christmas lights) Son of a bi***!
      Ethan: (on phone) Did she just called me a son of a bi***?!
      Holly: (on phone) Did he just called me a bi***?!

    • Kat: (angry) You tell that news chick that we don't have his number anymore because we burnt all evidence of that lying scumbag bastard. (happy) We still on for brunch tomorrow?
      Ethan: Yup.
      Kat: Oki Doki.

    • Ethan: Ah... I don't know. I guess she met Richie at my party and now she wants to get together or something. You know a lot of nice connections were made that night.
      Kat: Oh yeah absolutely. If it hadn't been for your party then my sister wouldn't have met the man who broke her heart and crushed her feet.
      Ethan: Yeah it wasn't a win-win for everybody!

    • Holly: I'm sorry, sorry, um... do you have a middle name?
      Richie: What?
      Holly: It's just better if you have a middle name, you know, like Lee Harvey Oswald, James Earl Ray, John Wilkes Booth, you know.
      Richie: They all killed people! I'm just a very bad driver.

    • Duncan: Hey check it out! Free cupcakes!
      Nichole: Yeah, there's like forty cops, rob the convenience store.

    • Holly: (slaps self) Oww! (then) For those who wondered what became of the bee--another mystery solved. As I am allergic to it, I will need to go to the hospital. This is Holly Ellenbogen, beginning to swell, News 9. (runs off)

      Ethan: Um... now?
      Kyle: Kind of walked into that.

      Duncan: Britney, huh?
      Richie: It was my mother's maiden name.
      Nicole: How have you not killed people?

    • Scott: Hey, if something goes wrong in there, it's my ass on the line.
      Duncan: Nothing's gonna go wrong. Come on, Scott, what do you say? For old times' sake.
      Scott: I'm sorry, there are rules.
      Nicole: I can get you Eagles tickets, 50 yard line, and Yonk Allen will sign any article of clothing you want.
      Scott: Watch where you step, it's a mess in there.

    • Scott: That's Richie Sandwichpants?

    • Lina: (after seeing Richie on the news in his car in the convenience store) There's Richie!
      Kat: When will they take his license away?

    • (phone rings)
      Kat: Hey.
      Ethan: Turn on the TV.
      Kat: Is this that stupid Animal Planet thing again? I do not care about the meerkats.

    • Kyle: She's the one who killed the bunny with her shoe.
      Ethan: Really? She killed a bunny with her shoe?
      Kat: Oh, her? I like her!

    • Kat: (after Ethan asks for Richie's cell phone number) You're going to call him? After what he did to her?
      Ethan: No, it's not for me. It's for Holly Ellenbogen.
      Kat: Who?
      Ethan: She went to school with us. She's on the news. No?
      Kyle: (to Holly, on the phone) Oh, she doesn't know who you are.
      Holly: Tell her I'm the one who killed the bunny with my shoe.

    • Tina: You can call his cell. It's speed dial two.
      Ethan: And if I'm using my phone?
      Tina: Oh!

    • Kat: (After telling Lina that Richie probably isn't dwelling over their breakup) I bet he's running over some new girl right now.

    • (After realizing Kyle is gay)
      Ethan: So Aaron is--
      Kyle: Also gay.
      Ethan: Well, I assume. Otherwise, that is one bad relationship. (then, glancing over at his own behind) Hey, what are you doing there?

    • Richie: (noticing the bee after the crash) How did you not die?!

    • Duncan: Why don't you just toss those and buy some new ones?
      Nicole: (still untangling the lights) These have sentimental value. (then, tugging the lights) Piece of crap!

    • Duncan: (to Richie) You gotta relax. It's just a bee in the car.
      Nicole: (overhearing) There's a bee in the car?! I would die.

    • Richie: You see, lately, my life has been one horrible thing after another and I know whatever I do next is only going to make it worse. So... I'm just not going to do anything. (then) But, please, tell everyone "great rescue!"

    • Duncan: Hey.
      Nicole: Hey.
      Duncan: Whatcha doing?
      Nicole: (holding up tangled Christmas lights) Oh, my mom sent me all our old Christmas stuff, so I figure I should have it untangled by New Years.

    • Richie: I'm okay. (air bag blows up in face) Seriously, now!

  • NOTES (1)


    • Kat: Is this that Animal Planet thing again? I do not care about the stupid meerkats!

      Kat references Meerkat Manor when prompted by Ethan to turn on her television.

    • Holly: It's just better if you have a middle name, you know like Lee Harvey Oswald, James Earl Ray, John Wilkes Booth. You know.

      James Earl Ray confessed to assassinating Martin Luther King Jr., he later recanted, but could not present hard evidence of his innocence. He spent the rest of his life in prison, and died at the age of seventy of cirrhosis.

      Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested for the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Oswald denied that he was guilty. Two days later, he was killed on live television by Jack Ruby, while he was in police custody.

      John Wilkes Booth is infamous for assassinating President Abraham Lincoln. Soldiers caught up with Booth and he was shot in the neck. His last words were, "Tell my mother I died for my country... useless... useless..."
