As Ethan's relationship with Palmer progresses, he decides to send her flowers to show how much he cares for her, but when Palmer doesn't seem to be happy about it, Ethan says that Kat sent her the flowers, and Kat agrees, only to help Ethan keep his relationship. However, this only prompts Palmer to confess that she always had a crush on Kat. In the meantime, Nicole, Duncan, Lina and Richie decide to visit Richie's "bad" neighbourhood to help him get his stuff from the apartment, and they end up running into Fern, and a gun.moreless

    This is the best episode yet. It was so well written and it was very hilarious. I can't believe Richie said that Holly Ellenbogen was the other woman. It was very comical. I was hysterical laughing. It was very clever. The writers of The Class are very unique with the script for the show. This is definitely one of the network's best shows. This show should last ten seasons. Another great part of this episode was at the end when Fern called Holly. I also liked that Palmer had a crush on Kat. This episode is yet another great episode and a perfect installment.moreless
  • HILARIOUS.

    I'm addicted to this show. It just seems to get better and better every episode.

    Things actually go forward, and that's great for the show's development. Richie/Lina: So good to see them back together. They're so cute. Fern: Oh dear God, the woman is scary. She calling Holly later to threaten her was so funny!!! I loved when she had her thumb caught on the gun and Richie, Nicole and Duncan walked out, then Richie insisted in coming back and when he walked in again she had this devil smile on her face, pointed the gun to him and said "Fixed it!" Nicole/Duncan: No big plot for them on this episode, but it was so funny how they're so alike. When Fern was in there with Richie, holding a gun, Nicole and Duncan arrived separately, but their reaction was practically the same. "Oh! A gun! You must be Fern!"

    Even the tone of voice was the same. It was a nice touch. Kat/Ethan: The highlight of the episode. The whole story with Palmer is hilarious. Oh my God, I laughed the entire time! When Palmer was hitting her, Kat's face was like WTF??? Also, I love to see how they've been playing things between Ethan and Kat. I mean, the chemisty is obvious and it's right there. And Ethan's expression when Kat said a threesome wasn't out of the question was priceless. Also, it was so good to see Kat teasing Ethan about the threesome, and he was like "OMG, are you serious?"

    It's also very nice how they show how annoyed Kat is when she sees Ethan and Palmer together, it's another nice touch.



    I loved this episode, it was so hilarious. It always is.moreless
  • Wow.

    Well, I can finally say that "The Class" hit a 10. This episode was great. Interesting story, classmates getting even closer and closer... it just feels right. Fern & Palmer were the stars of the night. Every week the show seems to be getting even better and better. It's different than the other shows, which people didn't appreciate at the beginning, but now it's a whole different story. I really enjoyed watching this episode and hope that the show won't lose it's originality. Sadly, once again, ratings seem to be the only reason why "The Class" could not suceed. We'll see.moreless

    • Kat: (to Ethan, after dinner) Well, I'm outta here.
      Ethan: (sadly) Goodnight...
      Kat: Will you stop pouting? It's never gonna happen.
      Ethan: I'll pout all I want. A dream has died tonight.

    • Kat: (to Ethan) Alright. Do you remember the scenario we were talking about a little while ago?
      Ethan: (smiles) Hmm. Remind me? Maybe there was a little saxophone in the background?
      Kat: Well... I think that... maybe I was a little close-minded.
      Ethan: (shocked) What?
      Kat: Well, I always said I'm someone who'd try anything once!
      Ethan: (quickly) And I love that about you!
      Kat: So, what I'm saying is... I'm not sure that a threesome is out of the question.
      Ethan: (weakly) Are you serious?
      Kat: God, you're right, it's crazy...
      Ethan: (desperatly) No! It's not crazy, it's not crazy! It's surprising and unexpected and perhaps even beautiful.
      Kat: It would just have to be a one-time thing.
      Ethan: I have no problem with that! One time is a hundred times better than no times!!
      Kat: Okay.
      (Ethan grins)
      (Kat heads towards the living room)
      Kat: Okay! So... you get Palmer out of here and I'm gonna go warm up Kyle.
      Ethan: Yeah---WHAT?
      Kat: A threesome, with you, me and Kyle.
      Ethan: Kyle? No, no, no! There's no Kyle! Palmer! Palmer, good!
      Kat: (disgusted) God, Palmer? No! You know how I feel about her. But Kyle? He's pretty hot, don't you think?
      Ethan: No! He's got boy parts!

    • Kat: (to Ethan) Palmer hit on me.
      Ethan: (incredulous) No way.
      Kat: Yeah! She got the wrong signals from the flowers that I gave her...
      Ethan: Oh my God...
      Kat: (meaning it) I'm really sorry.
      Ethan: Wow, um... I'm glad you told me...
      Kat: You okay?
      (Ethan covers his face with one hand and smiles)
      Ethan: Yeah, I just need to uh... take it in.
      (Kat stares at him, confused)
      Kat: Are you smiling?
      Ethan: No!!! Why would I be? The thought of you two together... it's... devastating!
      (Ethan covers his face again, grinning)
      Kat: (shocked) Are you getting off on this?
      Ethan: (snorts) No! I'm crushed! I mean, it's horrible! (dreamly) I'm not gonna be able to get the picture of the two of you out of my head!
      Kat: (irritated) This is unbelievable.
      Ethan: You know what would make things even worse? If I walked in on you guys. I mean, I don't even wanna think about what would happen next!
      (Kat walks past him)
      Kat: NOTHING, nothing happens next!
      Ethan: But what if it did? Talk about a nightmare! And what IF, in my distress, I tripped and fell on the bed and all my clothes fell off, what would you do? I mean, WHAT would you DO?!
      Kat: (still distressed) I am appalled. I just told you your girlfriend hit on me, alright? And now you're trying to put yourself in the middle of it?
      (She walks out)
      Ethan: No, I don't have to be in the middle, I'm fine with either end!

    • Ethan: (to Kat) Hey! I saw you chatting with Palmer earlier. How did that go?
      Kat: Um, it was uh... it was interesting!
      Ethan: How so?
      (Kat stands up and pulls him by the hand)
      Kat: Alright. I don't know how to tell you this, but uh... your new girlfriend? Kind of a buffer!

    • Fern: (to Richie) Have you met someone else??
      Richie: (unconvincingly) No!!!
      Nicole: (walks in) Did we get everything?
      (Fern turns to look at her, shocked, believing she's Richie's girlfriend)
      Nicole: Oh! A gun! You must be Fern!

    • Palmer: (to Kat) I just wanna let you know... that I wouldn't be... uninterested. Anyway, just wanted to put it out there!
      (Kat scrunches up her face)
      (Palmer runs off)
      Kyle: (walks towards Kat) I'm back.
      Kat: (frozen) Little late!

    • Kyle: (to Kat) Your mingling style is oddly bossy.

    • (Palmer grabs the wine Kyle gave Ethan)
      Palmer: I'll open it! I'm a great cork schroder!
      (She leaves, jumpily)
      Kyle: (to Ethan, doubtfully) She seems special.

    • (Palmer looks at the flowers Ethan sent her)
      Palmer: Wow! These are huge!
      Kat: (smirking) Wait 'til they all open!

    • Mrs. Carmello: I would not want to be a garbage badge.
      Richie: (Ironically) A controversial stance.
      Mrs. Carmello: Although, it is a badge. You get to go places.
      Richie: I would think mostly dumps.
      Mrs. Carmello: Still, it's nice to get out.

    • Kat: (To Ethan, about Palmer) Alright. If we're having dinner together, it's not just gonna be the three of us. I need buffers. I wanna throw bodies at this thing.
      Ethan: Alright. Call your sister and Richie.
      Kat: Oh, I will and you're calling people too. Friends, co-workers... I want this thing loco with amigos!

    • Kat: (To Ethan, about Palmer) I asked you to do one thing, and that was to hate her!
      Ethan: (Grinning) Well, then I completely screwed that up.
      Kat: Okay, so, you had your way with her, and now you're done! You're a guy, right? One night, moving on, who's next?
      Ethan: Actually, I'm seeing her again tonight.
      Kat: So two nights, moving on, who's next?

    • Kat: What is it with the one dude? Where are my buffers?
      Ethan: Okay, relax, your sister and Richie are coming with two backups, and in the meantime Kyle's the buffer.
      Palmer: Kyle's a what?
      Ethan: Huh... He's... he's a buffer.
      Palmer: What's a buffer?
      Ethan: You know... He's... gay.
      Palmer: Huh. Buffer? Never heard that term before.
      Ethan: It's new! It's cause a lot of gay guys work out, you know, and get buffer.

    • (Kat and Ethan walk towards Kat's apartment and she sees an enormous amount of flowers in front of Palmer's door)
      Kat: (disgusted) Oh, dear Lord.
      Ethan: Oh, good, they got here!
      Kat: (looks at him) Wait. That parade flode is from you?
      Ethan: (proudly) What do you think?
      Kat: I... think that she's gonna dump your ass.
      Ethan: (frowns) What?
      Kat: Dude, will you look at that thing? That is too much, too soon. You've been with her for like what, thee days?
      Ethan: (confused) You really think it's too much?
      Kat: Well, that depends... Did she win the Kentucky Derby?
      Ethan: I think they're nice.
      Kat: Oh, they're nice. They're restraining-order nice, they're I-want-to-make-a-jacket-out-of-your-skin nice.
      Ethan: Really? I just wanted her to know how I feel about her.
      Kat: Hey, I'm on board. This is you screwing up your relationship with Palmer. I would organize a walk-a-thon for that cause.
      (She enters at her apartment and Palmer gets out of hers)
      Palmer: (seeing the flowers, overwhelmed) Oh... my God!
      (Kat walks out of her apartment)
      Kat: (exultantly) And I get to see it!

    • Kat: Alright, if we're having dinner together, it's not just going to be the three of us. I need buffers. I want to throw bodies in this thing.
      Ethan: Alright. Call your sister and Richie.
      Kat: Oh, I will. And you're calling people too. Friends, co-workers, I want this thing loco with amigos!

      Ethan: We could get jackets!

    • Duncan: You need more than one outfit. You gotta go back to your place and get your stuff.
      Richie: I'm so afraid Fern's gonna be there, with her horns and tail and sulfur smell.

    • Duncan: So, Rich, Holly Ellenbogen, what's up with that?
      Richie: I don't know I just made up a name.
      Duncan: No you didn't.
      Nicole: We went to school with her. When you crashed your car she was the reporter in the back seat. That was Holly Ellenbogen.

    • Duncun: Hey guys, you get everything or... Oh! A gun. You must be Fern.
      Fern: Who is she? Who were you sneaking around with behind my back?
      Richie: It doesn't matter who she is.

      Richie: No.
      Fern: I'm not playing games.I want her name.

      Nicole: Oh my God!
      Duncan: Nice ex-wife by the way, real positive energy.
      Fern: (yelling through the door) Oww, it hurts!
      Duncan: Uh, Rich?
      Richie: It sounds like she's really in pain.
      Nicole: It's because she's caught in her gun!

    • Palmer: So, Ethan tells me you're a buffer.
      Kyle: He told you that?
      Palmer: Yeah, I-I hope that's okay.
      Kyle: Uh, It's fine with me, if you're okay with it.
      Palmer: Oh, yeah it's totally cool. My cousin Donald is a buffer.
      Kyle: He is? Like on a regular basis?
      Palmer: Umm, I think so. Since collage he's been pretty full on.
      Kyle: Huh, I've never actually been a buffer til tonight.

      Kyle: I need more monkey wine.

    • Ethan: You're not going to believe this. Palmer hit on Kat!
      Kyle: Huh, you're kidding.
      Ethan: No sir! I am not!

      Ethan: Come on! Kat on Palmer action. You know what I'm saying? You know what I'm saying. Seriously, do you know what I'm saying?
      Kyle: I-I suppose in theory, but...
      Ethan: God, it's not fair, I need a straight guy. I've got no one to share this with.
      Kyle: Oh! Oh, okay, umm... well, how's this? Oh, oh, oh man, that totally rocks. Two chicks, tasty.
      Ethan: Alright!
      Kyle: And all those breasts, going every which way!
      Ethan: And you're gay again.

    • Fern: So there is a girlfriend!
      Nicole: I'm sorry... was that not established?
      Fern: Well, whoever she is, she must have pretty low self esteem to fall for a shedding penniless albino like you.
      Richie: She's being nice because we have company.

    • Fern: (To Richie) So, how's the single life treating you? Kind of lonely being the only one listening to the sound of your nose whistling?

    • Fern: What the hell are you thinking, you idiot?!
      Richie: Oh, it's good to be home!

    • (After Duncan, Nicole and Richie enter Richie's apartment)
      Nicole: Could I use your bathroom really quick?
      Richie: Oh sure, it's right over there. But in order to flush the toilet, you have to take the lid off the tank and reach your hand in. The water's pretty murky but there's usually a rubber glove on the floor.
      Nicole: And now I don't have to go anymore!

    • Kat: (To Ethan in the hallway after seeing him kiss Palmer) You, inside, now! I asked you to do one thing, and that was to hate her.
      Ethan: Well then, I completely screwed that up!

    • Mrs. Carmello: You know who always wore the same outfit? Charlie Brown...

    • (Through the peep hole of her door, Kat watches Ethan and Palmer kiss in the hallway.)
      Kat: Gross, I can't believe I have to watch this!
