Episode Summary

When Holly and Tina don't have dates to the prom, they are upset, so they decide to throw an Anti-Prom, with no decorations, no dresses, and no prom king or prom queen. Everyone who doesn't have a date shows up, but when Henry comes with Kate, Holly is heartbroken. Meanwhile, Val doesn't know what to do when she gets an invitation to Rick and Julie's wedding. She tries to look at the post mark to see if it was sent before Julie's "no contact" rule, but the postmark is smudged.moreless

  • Val gets an invitation to Rick's wedding but doesn't know what to do about it. Holly's feelings for Henry resurfaces.

    This episode was awesome!!! The best part was when Holly and Val were arguing in the kitchen during the Anti-Prom. Val mentioned something about Holly liking Henry again, and Henry and his girlfriend Kate overheard them. Kate confronted Henry about his feelings for Holly, and when he didn't answer, she left. Another good part was when Gary asked Vince why he was so concerned about Holly's feelings towards Henry, and why he was looking at Holly so intimately. I guess this means Vince is finally starting to develop some feelings for Holly! Poor Lauren. She came to Holly's Anti-Prom in a fancy prom dress and tiara XDmoreless
  • Henry finds out Holly still has leftover feelings.

    I love this episode because Henry & Holly are the best couple in the show & it was amazing to find out Henry finding out & breaking up with his girlfriend to be with Holly, of course he doesn't do anything, but I guess we'll see in the next episode! The Anti-Prom is such a good plot & idea for What I Like About You, it is completely amazing, I like Joanne! She's awesome. I also like how Val's plot fit in, she doesn't know if she is invited to Rick's wedding. So she tries to find out & she isn't invited which was sad to see. A great episode!moreless
  • Funny!

    Holly wants to have an anti-prom party. She's throwing it for everyone who isn't going to prom. Lauren wants to go and make it her own prom that she never had.

Holly says that she likes Henry again. Henry breaks up with his girlfriend, but then gets back together, but breaks up with her again. Val is crushed when she learns that the invitation was a mistake.

    This episode was great! I want Holly and Henry together! Joanne was funny, but weird. This episode gets a 10!moreless
  • Not anything special

    Tina and Gary ask Holly if she is hooked on Vince or Henry, Vince or Henry, Vince or Henry! She says "so what if I'm hooked on Henry again!" She decides to tell him so at her anti-prom party but he shows up with his girlfriend. Val finds out that the invitation she got to Rick's wedding was a mistake and she is not wanted there. With both Holly and Val in bad moods, they take it out on each other and yell at each other during the party.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Nitpick: The cold open's soundtrack for this episode was obviously re-recorded after the episode was filmed, because when Val says "It's an invitation to Rick and Julie's wedding!", her lips don't move to the same pace as what she's saying. Also, Holly's lips don't move to the pace of what she says when she's saying "Oh, that's wierd, doesn't Julie hate your guts?"

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Gary: Why are you using it?
      Lauren: She's calling someone to see if she got invited to his wedding and she doesn't want him to know who it is.
      Gary: Did you get an invitation?
      Val: Yeah
      Gary: Then you're invited.
      Val: No, I couldn't read the postmark.
      Gary: So?
      Val: So, I don't know if I'm invited or not.
      Gary: Did you get an invitation?
      Val: Gary, it's Rick's wedding.
      Gary: Oh! Yeah, yeah, the guy you like whose getting married. Well, if you like him, why would you want to go to his wedding? Wouldn't that be kind of painful?
      Val: I guess...
      Gary: Then why do you want to go?

      Gary: Well, when are you going to decide?
      Val: When I find out if I was invited or not.
      Gary: Did you get an invitation?

    • Lauren: Its not prom until someone locks themselves up in the bathroom and has a meltdown or loses their virginity! Now, WHICH ONE IS IT GOING TO BE!?

    • Gary(to Vince): I think its weird that you're obsessed with Holly being obsessed with Henry.

    • Lauren: (to Val) You were queen? Guess what I was? Not asked.
