  • Ian really made "Steven" real.

    I really think Ian (Steve as an adult) made this episode. His acting was superb. He carried the show. I really liked how he was able to make us really feel like he was reliving the incidents that he had gone through with his Mother and Father as a boy. I almost forgot he played the part of a skating coach though when he came back for a "second chance". I really like Mr. Smith, although I really liked Mr. Jones in season 1 also. This was a great show and I am so glad that I am able to see the reruns. I know I've seen a few of them more than once (Even Steven, included), but that's just fine with me.moreless

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Judge Othniel: Sometimes keeping your heart closed can be more painful than taking the risk to open it.

    • (before he realizes that he is dead)
      Steven: Did you see that fall?
      Mr. Smith: It certainly gives new meaning to the term Freudian slip.

    • (regarding a traumatic event in Steven's life)
      Judge Othniel: You were humiliated. That event turned you into ah, an obsessively fastidious, power hungry...
      Mr. Smith: control freak. (Judge Othniel nods)
      Steven: So what? I like my environment neat and tidy. There's nothing pathological about that.
      Mr. Smith: I think you're terrified to lose control again. That way, no one can humiliate you or abandon you again. Ever.

    • Mr. Smith: Steven, being sent back is supposed to be about forgiving Buzzy Walsh.
      Steven: Oh, I'll forgive Buzzy - after I get even.

  • NOTES (1)

    • Former Canadian figure skater Brian Orser is billed as making a Special Guest Appearance. He appears as Steven's figure skating coach. Orser is a former World Champion and won silver medals in the men's competition at both the 1984 and 1988 Winter Olympics. He also had the honor of carrying the Canadian flag at the 1988 Winter Olympic Games Opening Ceremonies and leading his nation's Olympic team into the stadium in Calgary, Alberta.


    • Freudian slip
      Also known as parapraxis, it is associated with a slip in speech, memory, or action which can be interpreted as having a deeper meaning and related to an unconscious wish, conflict, or train of thought. It is named after famed Austrian neurologist Sigmund Freud (1856-1939), the founder of the psychoanalytic school of psychology.

    • Triple Salchow and Double Axel
      These are very difficult jumps which are performed in figure skating competitions and exhibitions.

    • Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee
      Steven is quoting world famous heavyweight boxer Muhammad Ali. Ali is purported to have first used the phrase at the weigh-in the day before his first title fight with Sunny Liston, which was held on February 25, 1964.
