I think this is one of my favorite episodes. But it’s hard to say, they’re all so great. However, the opening scene to this one is great, so we’ll start there.
“I like to sniff the kids most mornings, just randomly in the cooridors, checking for various odors, um, cigarette smoke, graffit pens, alcohol, that sort of thing…. yes it’s just one of the good things about having a heightened sense”
-Guess who? Mr. G, clearly. hahahaha I just love randomness. It’s really the best. Haven’t you noticed how incredibly random life is getting these days. Just look at commercials. SO random. Comedy has definitely shifter gears toward random and ridiculous, and I’m a big fan.
Jonah is meeting with Doug Peterson having an anger management meeting. Peterson asks Jonah what he thinks he should do to control his anger in a positive way, to which Jonah replies: “just say fuck off and walk away and don’t get mad.” Orrr, “you could go for a run around the oval.” “What? Everyone will think i’m a homo if i start running around the oval every time someone pisses me off” Peterson provides him with another option. He tells Jonah he could keep a journal. “I’m not a pufta sir” Jonah replies. I’m pretty sure I have accurately assessed that Pufta (sp?) is an australian term for homosexual, most likely derogatory, since Jonah is using it. Doug has Jonah write down some things to get her feelings out. When doing so, Jonah asks “how do you spell fuck him up?” hahahah he kills me.
Oh, by the way, Jonah calls Mr. Peterson Pedophile Pete. Just so we know. haha
Ja’mie’s friends talk about the fact that she accidently sent Bec a picture making fun of the girls (Kaitlyn, Holly, Jess, Bec). They fight about it and claim they aren’t going to be friends with Ja’mie anymore. She tries to tell them to build a bridge and get over it, but they walk away.
Since the girls won’t talk to her, Ja’mie goes to try to be friends with Ashley, the girl she was set up with on her first day at Summer Heights, but Ashley walks away from her, to which Jonah responds, “why would I want to be friends with you anyway, you lesbian curly haired bitch?” SO rude. But is it bad that I also find it equally as funny?
Holly won’t let ja’mie sit by her either. She tells Ja’mie to go take a different seat. Ja’mie replies, “I’m not gonna sit next to some random emo”. “Calm down ja’mie, you’re really embarrassing yourself” Again, Ja’mie replies, “you know what would be embarrassing? Having your head” Nonsensicle. Yes, I realize that’s not a word. Just go with it. Ja’mie then runs outside crying and calls her mom. She begins a long monologue yelling at her mom on the phone, “maybe i’ll just go root some teacher and then i’ll get pregnant and then you’ll have to raise the baby. is that what you want?” She is trying to get her mom to come pick her up, claiming that she wants to go back to Hilford. “I’m a fucking private school girl!”
Later in the episode, Ja’mie goes to the counselor in order to call a session with her friends, during which she tells them, “Just learn what a sense of humor is ok” “guys seriously, build a bridge and get over it”. The session, to be honest, is a lot of yelling and at first I wasn’t all that delighted by it. However, upon watching it again, if you pay enough attention, you hear so many hilarious things. The entire show is like that really, I’ve seen all the episodes so many times but there is somehow always something I missed. In this case, comments like “You’ve gotta really watch your msn windows” or “They’re doing some great deals on one-way tickets to china.” However, at the end somehow despite essentially claiming that she was not sorry, still convinced her friends to forgive her, and they are back to normal by the end of the episode.
Mr. G begins auditions for his musical. During this process, he gets an “excitement quiver” about it. I would try to explain this, but I think it will be better if you actually see it, so here it is:
bahahaha. Come on. Hilarious.
Continuing on with the show… Mr. G discusses that since Annabelle was considered a slut, “I am asking some of the sluttier girls to get involved.” Mr. G interviews students for the show, asking such things as, “Any emotional history? dad ever hit mom? if you had to choose above or below belly button”
Is he a teacher? Yes. Is this insanely inappropriate? Of course. Is it funny? Definitely. Notice the theme?
He also tests them for hand eye coordination. chucks a ball past a student from very close range. “missed it”. There you go, there’s a clean one for once. But still SO funny. Again, this one is better when seen. There’s some stage action for you.
Time for Jonah, who is in english class when Ms. Wheatley tells him that he will be presenting his project on the outsiders tomorrow. “you said i could do mine on Tupac.” Haha. However, later in the episode, things get a bit more serious and a lot more awkward. Ms. Palmer calls jonah in because he drew a picture of his father “touching my dick or something” they call his father in for a meeting. His father is confused and pissed off. at the end, jonah says that he made it up to get out of a class, and because the teachers would freak out. This is probably one of my least favorite parts of the show actually. It got a little funnier after the first time, but still, a bit more awkward then funny I’d say.
Back at auditions, Mr. G is auditioning for the spot of Celine, his own dog. He claims that she is not a shoe in, but we all know that’s false. However, he says, “we’re doing a 3 week run, so i need a dog that can handle that kind of schedule.” He treats Celine like an actual human. “Head forward, don’t look self conscious.” Yes, he says this to a dog haha.
Mr. G separates those who auditioned into two groups and sends them into two rooms. He then proceeds to trick the children making the group who is the cast think they didn’t get it, and vise versa. They do this on American Idol as well. Dirty little tricksters.
Oh, also, naturally, Celine got the part. She is included in the group when they are divided, and upon telling them they are his cast, Mr. G starts yelling out parts, including “Celine, you’re celine!” Hahah what a revelation.
