  • All That's Chelsea Brumett guest stars!

    Chelsea Brumett acted so well in this episode, I feel really bad for Gary throughout the whole episode. It's really easy to hate Holly in this episode. It's so funny how Val & Holly are walking toward the elevator, then Samantha & Gary are making out, Holly's reaction is priceless. The B plot was okay. Pretty much Jeff buying a lot of sleeping wear for Val because he's jealous of Val's old boyfriend. This really marks as an episode that shows Jeff's stupidity, especially when Jeff was wearing that silly tank top. Samantha was so mean at the end, how she ditched them for a band guy, overall this episode is very laughable.moreless
  • I loved it!

    Holly's best friend, Sam, is coming to visit! She is so excited and she is hoping that she, Gary and Sam can all be friends. Unfortunately, Gary doesn't like Sam and vice versa. Holly tries to convince Gary to give Sam a chance. The next day, Holly catches Gary and Sam making out. It turns out that they saw each other on the subway and started kissing. Holly then feels like a third wheel. When Jeff finds Val's sweatshirt, he finds out that she sleeps in it and it used to be her ex-boyfriend's. Jeff gets jealous and tries to make her not wear it. Sam ditches Gary to hook up with some other guys.

    This episode was great! It was really cool seeing Chelsea Brummet! She was in All That like Amanda Bynes was. This episode gets a 10 out of 10!moreless
  • What I like About You

    I thought that Tankini was an okay episode. It wasn't all that great, but still it was pretty good. In this episode, Holly's old friend, Samantha Gray, moved into New York. Her and Samantha were friends in Junior high. Samantha and Gary don't like each other when they first meet, but the second day, Holly found them making out in the elevator. So they were like a couple. When Holly, Samantha, and Gary were meeting up to hang out, Samantha hooked up with this band guy. Holly got mad at her, and she told Gary, but Gary was okay with it. Val wears her ex-boyfriends Harvard sweatshirt to bed. Jeff gets jealous so he buys Val other things to sleep in. She only likes the Harvard sweatshirt. Jeff ends up wearing an ex-girlfriends cami to try to make Val jealous, but Val just laughs. They make up at the end.moreless

  • NOTES (6)


    • The A-Team
      This show ran on NBC from 1983-1987. It was about a crack commando unit that was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. Thus, they call themselves "The A-Team."

    • Foreshadowing Romance Between Samantha and Gary
      Samantha's last name is "Gray," but her last name can be refigured to say "Gary." In addition gray is the color that results from the combination of black and white and coincidentially Gary is black and Samantha is white.
