  • Still Great!

    Richie is hilarious. Kat is also very hilarious. This episode rocked! It was so funny. I love "The Class"!
  • Broken feet....patient information....Welcome to Fantasy Island and being almost as important as the Super Bowl.

    Kat's exchange with the nurse was hilarious and true to life. Although I saw episode 3 before this one and I know Richie and Lena got together again even after the accident, had I seen this one first, I'd had been surprised as well that Lina had no ill feelings toward Richie.

    Ethan and Kat are great foils for each other; I hope there is more of them in future episodes. They could actually carry the show.

    The pairing of Perry and Holly is great. Sam Harris is wonderful. I love watching him go thru his flamboyant mannersims which scream he is as gay as Kyle and Aaron but nobody seems to notice this.

    And, then you have Duncan and Nicole. So cute together. You can see he really loves her and she needs him. Enter the husband and he says a few words to her and she wants to try and make it work.

    Good episode, it made me laugh. A great cast!moreless
  • What happens next?

    So, after an average pilot, the second episode brings us the continuation of the previous episode.

    The stories start developing, although not too much. They probably don't want to give too much too fast. I liked the scene with Kat talking to the nurse about patients. Ethan was pretty much useless in this episode. Richie too, but I liked the ending. We'll see what happens next.

    The entire Holly/Perry/Kyle/Aaron story is interesting too. And funny. But the best part was the Nicole/Duncan story. Although it wasn't too fast, it's good to see some drama too.

    To sum up this short text, this episode was OK. It was OK, average. The only thing I can say is that I can't wait for the next episode. We'll see how the show will develop. It's slow, but it's still good. For now.moreless
  • It was okay...

    So, episode two of The Class has come and gone. It's on before Corner Gas in Canada, which gives it the lead-in audience here, but I don't know what it's got in the States, if anything, and it may soon die an early and unnatural death.

    This episode was okay, but really not all that funny. It was predictable. The angry sister caring for her younger twin and sending the guy who hit her with his car away. He takes pills, then she calls... the sister wants to see him again! Yup... saw that coming. The woman who's married to a man who seems to be obviously not straight (I don't think I can say the other word here), and his jokes about how could she ~not~ know that her high school boyfried was not straight? Yup, saw that one too. The "jokes" about her not understanding the mild latin-american/spanish type accent of the classmate's boyfriend were just uncomfortable.

    In fact, as I'm writing this, I think I'll give it a lower score than I originally started out with. It was worse than I thought. I expect it will die that early death SOON.moreless
  • With all of the good stuff this fall, why watch this!

    When I roasted the pilot, I was told to wait, the show would get better. I suppose those same people will tell me to wait again.

    I'm still waiting for the laughs, or even a situation that I would find funny enough to be funny. If anyone thinks that the ending where suiside boy swollows pills and then gets a call that the girl he ran over wants him was funny, or a timing classic, please write me, I have a bridge I would like to sell you!

    I found this show lacking in humor, pacing, and good writing. But I know, wait till next week it will get better! NOT!!!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • TRIVIA: Jason Ritter's character Ethan Haas shows significant change from the previous episode which takes place during the same night. His hair has grown tremendously from the first episode. This is mostly because the pilot was shot months before this episode.

    • TRIVIA: Kat notes that her sister Lina was born 6 minutes after her, which makes Lina the younger twin sister.

    • TRIVIA: First episode to feature the Previously On segment.

  • QUOTES (22)

    • Perry: (chuckling) I just can't believe you didn't know he was gay.
      Holly: I guess I was naive. But when you're in love, you don't see these things.
      Perry: Even so. It's right there in front of your face. (flamboyantly) Hello!

    • Kat: (To Richie) Dude! You ran her over! There are no second dates after that! There's no "Oh, no, no it's okay, I've got my friend's car this time, it's lighter!"

    • Yonk: You asked me if you were the best thing that ever happened to me and I said you came after the Super Bowl and dinner at the White House and all that other stuff. Well, that was just all pure T bull!
      Nicole: Yeah?
      Yonk: I was talking crazy. You are right there... after the Super Bowl.

    • Kyle: I-I wasn't even sure I was gay.
      Holly: Really? (short pause) 'Cause you both looked pretty gay to me!

    • Kat: Well, I'm going to go get some coffee. Do you want some?
      Ethan: Sure.
      Richie: I wouldn't mind--
      Kat: Are you kidding me?!

      Perry: My streusel coffee cake?
      Holly: No.
      Perry: Parmesean twist?
      Holly: No, it's sort of lemony.
      Perry: Oh, that's me! (Holly moves closer to smell him)

    • (Duncan and Nicole arrive at her and Yonk's house)
      Duncan: I have been here before!
      Nicole: What?
      Duncan: Yeah, I did a bunch of the drywall in this place!
      Nicole: You're kidding?!
      Duncan: Nah, it was like one of my first jobs ever!
      Nicole: That is so wild!
      Duncan: Yeah! This place is not well built!

    • Nicole: Yeah, I'm gonna burn in hell. I can't do this. I'm married... to a man I love a good percentage of the time. We took vows... in a church. I wear his ri- (She looks at her hand an notices her ring is missing) Oh my God! Where's my ring?
      Duncan: No no... it's okay, it's okay, it's okay. Found it under the bed... along with this... (he pulls out a pair of purple bra from his jacket)
      Nicole: That by the way... not mine.
      Duncan: (He hands the bra to her) Did you want 'em?
      Nicole: No! (Duncan puts the bra back in his jacket pocket)

    • (After Richie admits he ran over Lina)
      Kat: You ran over my sister?!
      Ethan: Look, was obviously an accident. Ok?
      Kat: You're right, you're right, you're right. It's not his fault at all. No, I mean, if only they could put a reflective surface inside the car so you could see what's behind you!

    • Kyle: You named your daughter Oprah?
      Holly: Oh... (points to Perry)
      Perry: I'm a fan!

    • (Holly, Perry, Kyle and Aaron are having dinner)
      Holly: So, Aaron, what do you do?
      Aaron: (mumbles a bit) Well, I'm a software engineer for an internet security company.
      Holly: Sorry?
      Aaron: I'm a software engineer for an internet security company.
      Holly: One more time.
      Perry: He's a software engineer for an internet security company.
      Holly: Oh, really? (to Perry) You got that?
      Perry: You just have to watch his lips.

    • Ethan: All of the bones in both her feet were broken.
      Richie: All the bones?
      Ethan: Actually, there was one that didn't break.
      Richie: So, one of her bones was OK?
      Ethan: Yeah, but turns out they had to break it to set the other ones.
      Richie: But for a little while it was OK?

    • Nicole: I'm married to a man I love---a good percentage of my time.

    • Nicole: I should have waited for you to wake up, I know. But I was just afraid that if I did, I would never leave.
      Duncan: Nah, you would have left as soon as my mom started rolling around on her exercise ball.

    • Nurse: Ma'am, I didn't say I didn't know. But don't be patient. Information can give you information regarding a patient.
      Kat: So you have the information?
      Nurse: I do.
      Kat: But you can't give me the information?
      Nurse: Right. For information about the patient you need to go to patient information. (the phone rigs, she answers) Patient information?

    • Duncan: A note.
      Nicole: I'm sorry.
      Duncan: I wake up. You're gone. And you just left a note.
      Nicole: It was polite!
      Duncan: And it's on my mom's pad. So, one of the greatest nights of my entire life ends with A Doodle from the Noodle of Tina Carmello.

    • Richie: I'm the one who went out for coffee with your sister.
      Kat: Oh my God. What happened?
      Richie: Well, she was walking... Through the parking lot. And evidently, a car backed into her and kinda ran over her.
      Kat: What?
      Ethan: Did you see it happen?
      Richie: I did not.
      Ethan: Do they know who did it?
      Richie: Yes. It was a large hispanic wo... It was ME!

    • Kat: Wow, you're a doctor?
      Ethan: Do you listen to anything I say?

    • Kyle: Look, you have to know, you were the last person in the world that I ever wanted to hurt.
      Holly: So what happened? Was everyone else unavailable that night?

    • Kat: (about Lina) She was born six minutes after me, so I'm her big sister you know. I'm supposed to make sure that bad stuff doesn't happen to her.
      Ethan: This probably doesn't help but it could have been so much worse.
      Kat: No. No. See, I can't go there. I can't let myself imagine anything worse than this... Well, maybe one thing.
      Ethan: Are you gonna say my party again?
      Kat: I was, yeah.

    • (At the hospital)
      Kat: What a horrible night.
      Ethan: She'll be okay.
      Kat: No, I meant your party.

    • Richie: (about Lina) I am so sorry.
      Kat: (angry) I am gonna kill you!
      Richie: I am way ahead of you on that.
