    Is there any doubt or debate as to whether or not this is the best episode in What I Like About You history? I'm honestly in awe that this isn't one of the best episodes of the series in TV.com, and episodes in season 4 are up there. This basically was the last really superb episode of What I Like About You, before the writing started to get muddy, and the whole series became a blown up romantic comedy, take season 4 for example. All the characters were used perfectly and everyone got a chance to be in the spotlight.



    Sure the plot wasn't very intriguing, the gang pranks each other, but I saw it as much more than that. I laughed all the way through, which is unheard of in the later episodes of this show. We got a surprise ending, and we even got some romance without it being the main focus of the episode.



    Everyone was perfect without a doubt, don't miss this installment of What I Like About You, it's this show at it's best.moreless
  • Holly and the gang pull an endless series of tricks and pranks on each other.

    In my opinion, the best prank was at the end, when Vince asked Holly to marry him. Holly was shocked, and when she almost said yes, Vince said "Gotcha" and made her angry. He gloated over his victory, until Holly made fun of his pants. She said they were shrinking, and he got mad, and chased her. Other pranks include Holly fake getting arrested for illegally downloading music, Ben and Gary and Vince getting evicted, Bed getting deported, Holly almost marrying Ben, and making Val feel bad about pulling a prank. Overall, I would say this is probably one of the best episodes.moreless

    I was laughing the most in the episode out of all of the What I lIke About You episodes! It had so many pranks on everyone. Everytime someone had a prank lined up, someone would over hear and get a counter prank. The funniest one was Val's prank maybe in my opinion. I thought that Holly was in on the joke but she wasnt. The reason why its my favorite is Vals reaction after she says "gotcha!!" She is so happy for getting in on all of the pranks. Also, in the end, i really believed Vince when he asked Holly to marry him! and then holly is like "your pants are stupid!" and heis like "yeah, they are baggy" and shes like "yeah, maybe your shrinking!" and then Vince said "YoU! I Went to 3 doctors!!" lol! he is such an idiot. I take back what i said before, Holly pulled the best prank on Vince when he thought he was shrinking! I gotta give her props for that one, convincing someone they are shrinking and getting them to go to 3 doctors to check and make sure they werent cuz they thought they were! LOL!!! ViNcE aNd HoLlY 4EvA!!!!moreless

    Holly, Gary, Tina, Vince, and Ben pull a series of pranks on each other. Holly pretends that Gary, Vince and Ben get evicted, but they turn it around by pretending that Ben must go back to England now. Tina overhears them talking about it, so she and Holly go with it and say that Holly and Ben have to get married in order for him to stay. Gary overhears Holly and Tina, so Gary, Ben, and Vince turn it around again. Val wants to be fun, so she buys a porsche. Lauren tells her to go back to boring Val. Val pulls the ultimate prank on everybody during Holly and Ben's wedding.



    This episode was fantastic! I loved it! It was really funny! This episode gets a 10 out of 10 from me!moreless
  • You can never get enough of this episode...

    This is one of the best episodes in the whole series. Everybody is pranking each other, and you can't help but laugh. Ben and Holly have to get married due to a prank where Ben has been told he has to go back to England, unless he gets married to a U.S citizen. At the end it's just a big ol' joke when Val gets a real minister and contacted immigration and got valid forms to be filled out. She also said they had to be living together for a year to make it final. Val at the end said it was all a big ol' joke and said, "Gotcha!". Holly, Tina, Gary, Vince, and Ben all left saying it wasn't funny, and when Val opened the door everybody said, "Gotcha!". This is an episode you have to see if you love the series. This was a perfect episode, and it made my day.moreless
