  • Good Episode, not a great one, and the best so far, that's sad

    This show really tries to aim on the bullseye for comedy. It does hit of course, but there's sometimes more misses than hits, and I'd give this episode 75% accuracy in a game of darts. I really enjoyed the fact that what can go wrong--did, and faith got a hole in her head from a pipe, and yet, maybe that's supposed to make us think that Faith is just an airhead maybe? A brainless blonde? Who knows? The episode ends in an unenjoyable but sorta funny fashion. Who knew a hole in the head could make you popular? Guess that's what happened to JFK, but he actually had to die because of it. And so did this show.moreless

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Bob: (rips a page out of the phonebook) We'll find Faith if we have to visit every freak show in here. (rips out another page) I never realized there were so many in our area code. (rips out another page) We're only up to the D's.

    • Bob: Your mom's beautiful and there's not a hole in her.
      Faith: I knew you'd say that.
      Liz: I didn't.

    • (referring to Kimberly in wheelchair)
      Faith: I'd kick her ass if she wasn't sitting on it all the time.

  • NOTES (3)

    • Fast National Rating: 3.8/6
      This episode is the first and only to defeat fellow Fox newbie Oliver Beene. The Pitts' victory is marginal, at 0.1.

    • Simpsons Revisited: Petey wears a magic hat, exploiting Faith as a freak show attraction, as did Bart to Homer. While watching TV, Faith hears "You're watching FOX," as did braindead Simpsons family hear the same thing.

    • Featured Music: "Party In My Head" by NRBQ
      This was "performed" by Keith's band. And was not rock music as stated earlier, but was mellow R & B.
