    With only three more left to go in this season, this episode really started to up the ante. First, Suki's family's involvement with the school is REALLY eplored here. It turns out that she has a not-so dead long lost brother who's so spineless that he can't even THINK apart from what his father says. And he's planning on resetting Whisper 119 to be more effective. The thing with Ian's parents was really well-designed. And it left me wondering why it was 'too dangerous' for Ian to be calling home (maybe his parents wanted him sent off to that rat hole to learn some respect- they had a similar discussion in the first epsode). The running gag with Ian (and later, as we find out, Gabe) having never kissed a girl made for some light humor (and you could tell that CJ SOOOO wanted to be his first kiss [she got her wish in the end]). All in all, this episode raised the question o where Suki will go when and if the four friends get free. It's a grim thought indeed and it's actually starting to look like Ian might not have a house and a home to go back to either. That fight with Shinji was one of the best scenes (what the HECK was that thing with him duplicating himself) and I kind of enjoyed watching him get his butt kicked (I mean, come on, he sold out his own SISTER and you could tell that he knew it was wrong but was just too interested in Daddy's opinion, whether right or wrong). So now Ian is bent in the direction of escape, if for no other reason, so that he can find out what's going on back at home.moreless

    • Suki: We have to find the parts.
      Gabe: Piece of cake.
      CJ: Glad you think so because this all seems complicated to me.
      Gabe: Oh. No, yeah, this--extremely complicated. I was literally talking about this piece of cake. If we're going to do this in 15 hours or less, I'm going to need the sugar rush, and that puppy looks scrumdiliumcious. I'm going to take it.
      Suki: That's Ian's.
      Gabe: I don't care if it's Ian's. He'll let me have it. Sorry, buddy.

    • Gabe: Hey. So... you and Ian, huh?
      CJ: Me and Ian what?
      Gabe: Oh, nothing. It's just crazy. That's all. You guys are friends, and now it's, like, you like each other or something.
      CJ: So?
      Gabe: Doesn't bother me. It's just funny. That's all. You know, you like him. Next thing you know, cats like dogs, Headmaster likes Coach. Suki likes Ray.
      CJ: Careful, Gabe. Your jealousy's showing.
      Gabe: I--I'm not jealous. You're--you're stupid.
