  • The Sweathogs "disquise" themselves to participate in a review of Mr. Kotter's teaching skills.

    8.5
    The Sweathogs disquise themselves so they can speak at Mr. Kotter's trial of sorts. It's a funny, if not a bit absurd epsisode. It's an episode that confirms that Kotter's students are into him as a teacher. Vinnie sticking cotton in his mouth to do an impression of Brando, was for me the highlight of this episode.
  • Familiar plot in other things but done very well here.

    8.8
    Everything doesn't have to be done the same old way for everyone. That's a theme at least as old as Jesus admonishing the Pharisees to stop being so legalistic. It's hard to make a familiar storyline into something new, but this episode at least shows it with quite a bit of feeling and demonstrates the Sweathogs' love for their techer.

    • Gabe: You went to the library where they keep the books?
      Vinnie: Yeah. And for three whole days we spent lookin' up what you call legal 'presidents'.

    • Gabe: I'm a teacher. That's what it says on my locker, "Mr. Kotter, teacher." And I'm teaching a bunch of students called Sweathogs. Now, contrary to popular opinion, Sweathogs are not dumb. I mean, a dumb person does not think of a way to make it rain in the gymnasium.
      Vinnie: I did that.

    • Gabe: Thanks a lot, Charlie. You just won the award for best performance by a moral supporter in a non-supporting role.

    • Gabe: Learning is a discussion between people, a dialogue. The ancient Greeks did it.
      Woodman: Where are your ancient Greeks today, Kotter?
      Gabe: They're all in a restaurant on 9th Avenue.

    • Ms. Riley: Mr. Kotter, are these your students?
      Gabe: Yes, these are my Sweathogs. That's Moe, Larry, Curly, (pointing at Barbarino) and that's Raquel.
