  • one of The funniest episodes of the series

    OMG how can I explain these episodes. Especially The means justify the trend, it was freakin hilarious. In German Squirming, Todd wants to see the greatest amusement park that man has ever known, the Fun o sphere. The only way to get in is to get good grades for Dick and Agent K. But he's flunking German language. In an attempt to get in, he replaces his former German teacher and replaces him with a guy who only speaks German. Not knowing what he is saying, Todd deciphers that he's doing great, while the German person is saying that he's bad. For that he makes it in to the Fun o sphere, but is tempted to do German, especially when Todd has to fix the amusement park with instructions that were only German. Now knowing that he doesn't do well in German class, he stuck with it.

    Overall- A awesome episode Dan, probably one of your best episodes. Many parts are funny. So to everyone, it's a must see.

    In The means justify the trend, Riley sees all of the girls dressing up like this great model. Everyone is dressing up like her and admiring her, even Sheldon!!!! lol. Riley annoyed with this, she replaces the trendy model girl with herself!!!! Riley now became the model everyone girl wants to be. When she was that, (this is where the funny begins) everybody wants to dress like her, be like her, and admire her. Every girl was around her and were adoring her. Riley's plan backfired. Even if her style was really bad, the girls will still dress like her! Even if making a speech, the girls will do it too. Riley eventually replaces her back and now the girls learned a lesson. Good job Riley!

    Overall- the funniest episode yet. Riley is so freakin hillarious in this episode. Really a must see to anybody, even those who aren't fans.moreless

    • A Hard Day's Night

      The scene in which Todd and Riley are being chased by the school-girls and their attempts at evading them are a reference to a similar scene in the Beatles' film A Hard Day's Night.

    • "Thriller"

      The dance that Riley does in the street is similar to the dance from Michael Jackson's "Thriller", with Buzz being the guy who laughs evilly at the end.
