  • WAY better than I expected

    When I first saw the promo for this episode, I thought it was going to be horrible because it dealt with Jade trying to make Tori look bad but then when I first this episode, I was actually very impressed and I was glad that it didn't turn out bad of an episode after all. Tori being Jade's partner was no surprise since they both are enemies. Well, Tori tries to be Jade's friend but Jade just likes to make Tori miserable and doesn't like Tori. Tori saying "butternut" because she was afraid that Jade would actually punch her was funny. Tori acting as the elder and Jade acting as the brutal mugger was entertaining to see actually. Tori accidentally punching Jade was also funny. It was very funny when Lane was trying to talk to Tori about punching Jade and then he has a security in the room in case Tori tries to punch someone (which Tori didn't mean to). The ending was also very funny when Tori and Jade were dancing while scraping off the food and then they leave. It was hilarious when the security was dancing and scraping off the food as well and then stopped dancing and was wondering where Tori and Jade went. I really loved the interaction between Tori and Jade at the end of the episode and I wish it was like that in the later episodes but sadly Jade still despises Tori and wants to make her miserable. The only thing I didn't like in this episode was that Jade used fake blood to make it look like that Tori punched her which Tori really didn't punch Jade after all. Also, Robbie's plot was funny and entertaining to watch as well. Overall, this episode turned out WAY better than I expected and I was very impressed by it. 9.5/10moreless

  • Tori gets paired up with Jade in a stage fighting class, but she is afraid that Jade will beat her up for real.

    Another great episode. I loved how Tori thought Russ was beating up Beck for real and how Jade said "And now Tori says, "What's stage fighting?"". Tori ends up being paired up with Jade to perform a fight scene, and she keeps worrying about Jade hitting her for real. When it coems to the scene, Jade acts as if Tori hit her for real and uses fake blood and makeup for a black eye.

    Then there's another great part where Robbie and Trina have to audition for a scene together, and Trina has to kiss Robbie, causing him to believe Trina likes him. My favorite part was when he went to her house and Trina just took his food but still rejected him. The ending was good, but I found Derrick's dancing to be a little weird...But overall it was still a good episode and really funny. Go Victorious!moreless

    A good episode of Victorious, one of the reasons I tune in is because of how much Dan can get away with as opposed to Disney Channel shows. Victorious belongs on TeenNick so it can really pull out all the stops. The constant making out scenes, the surprising and entertaining violence. I think that's what makes this show what it is. Because from what I've seen, it's definitely not the comedy.

    I can definitely see Jade's character changing over time, and we got some definite development even though the fact that she was faking was quite predictable. I definitely liked Robbie's story line more for some reason. His interactions with Trina were really great and entertaining. His kiss with two leading ladies was very fun to watch.

    A good original concept of stage fighting which distinguishes it, and at times proves to not be a carbon copy of iCarly with a somewhat different plot.moreless

  • NOTES (6)

    • The duration of this episode is '23:37.'

    • Original International Air Dates:
      Australia: September 28th, 2010 on Nickelodeon.

    • In the scene at the end, when Tori and Jade are cleaning up the food fight scene, when Jade goes to turn the music on, she trips and falls into the wall

    • The scene where Tori accidently picks up a big piece of lettuce and tries to shake it off actually happened during one of the takes by accident, but it made her and the creator, Dan Schneider, laugh. So, he asked her to do it on purpose for the scene.

    • On the very back wall with green bricks, in the room where Robbie and the others are waiting to audition, the names written there are those of various Victorious and iCarly cast and crew. In the context of the show, those names are those of the students who have graduated.

    • In the original script, when Tori says "I dunno... I like French fries, French toast..." there was an added part where she adds "french kissing", but it was taken out because it would have been too much for Nickelodeon.


    • Locker Stickers:

      On the locker that is two away from Tori's, the stickers that are posted all over it, featuring words like "blunder" and "fang", are actually Wacky Packages, which were sold as trading cards and even gave way to the Garbage Pail Kids trading card series.

      Inside Tori's locker, there is a sticker that says "Don't You Fake It", which is an allusion to the Red Jumpsuit Apparatus album of the same name, and multiple pictures of Katy Perry.

    • André: Play that funky music white girl.

      This is a reference to the Wild Cherry song "Play That Funky Music".
