  • funny episode.

    Holly meets Henry's older brother, Noah (guest star Cameron Mathison). Holly thinks that Noah and Val would make a great couple together. She mentions this to Henry and he says to not fix them up together. So, Holly promises she won't. Holly ends up taking Val to the blood drive Noah told them about, so Val and Noah would see each other and get fixed up together without her introducing them to each other. Val and Noah end up setting a date for that night. Henry finds out and tells Holly that she shouldn't have done that, so Henry takes her to Noah's bedroom and sees a hundred teddy bears. Henry and Holly think he is gay Holly tells Val she can't go out with him. But Val does and figures out that those teddy bears are from a different girl everytime they slept together.

    HAHA. hilarious episode!moreless
  • Holly fixes Val up with the worst person.

    This could only happen to Val, or Holly, I love this episode because Henry's brother is revealed & I like how he takes charge & tells Holly what not to do for once but of course she does it anyway. I like how she was talking all nice but then when the doctor starting taking blood she was like "Damn doctor"That was hilarious. Those stuffed animals have a sick meaning, that guy is such a pig, anyways, Jill is once again in the episode arc, her working with Gary acting like a piece of meat is an amazing way to fit her in. A great original episode.moreless
  • Noah is weird

She finds out that Noah's room is full of stuffed animals. She tries to warn Val not to go out with him without telling her why, but she does anyway. She sees his room and assumes he's gay He explains why they are there. Each stuffed animal is from a girl he's had sex with. Val then just leaves.

    This episode was pretty good! I didn't like Noah when I found out what the animals were for. This episode gets a 9.0!moreless
