0:05 "Come on, Marie! We don't want to be late for the dance and let the girls from Mary Magdalen start showing their wares!" A good opening line is always gold!
0:32 And Cinderella makes her entrance . . .
0:49 "Thank you! I worked an hour to look this way." It's set up as a joke, but that actually was how long it took to capture the "nice, wholesome Catholic girl" look in the late 1980s.
1:00 "What do Wendy and I look like, a couple of sluts?" In case you're unfamiliar with the show, yes, Cindy is the spacey one.
1:17 You'd think they could have at least put ten body doubles inside that car!
1:42 Meet Marie, the responsible eldest child who dreams of being a nun.
1:45 Meet Cindy, the pretty, slightly (!) ditzy daughter.
1:48 Meet Wendy, the boy-crazy daughter who comes up with all the mad schemes.
1:51 Meet Connie, the artsy, eccentric daughter who writes a lot.
1:54 JR and Sherry are great characters, too, but they don't really have much to do in this episode.
2:09 And have I mentioned the babies Harvey and Melissa?
3:05 What's so strange about it? There were sisters at my prom, too, you know.
3:11 I know exactly what you mean, Marie. =(
4:05 Four girls, four guys . . . Let's see how this unfolds.
4:27 "I know you don't want to dance with me. It's okay. Don't worry about my feelings." A JERK AND A HALF!
4:52 You all saw this coming, right?
6:22 Instead of one party losing a shoe, we had both parties dropping their glasses; and now it's better than Cinderella.
6:47 "Some people think I'm a little square" . . . "They're probably just jealous because you're so . . . spiritual." Ah, yes, that old euphemism for square.
8:09 I think that little wave is just so cute!
0:15 "You know, the nutty one that's on after Mr. Belvedere." I don't know about you, but I think metatheatrical jokes are kind of fun! =)
0:20 "The mom on that show is so real!" Do you suppose this line was adlibbed? =P
1:50 "I hate to see you settle for the drippings when you could have the roast!" . . . "Russell is not drippings!!!" Marie is such a lovely girl to defend the so-called drippings. (I would have attacked the so-called roast.)
2:52 "And remember: in America, even a girl like Connie can date a good looking guy." So is she saying my only hope is in America??? (I'm so doomed.)
3:28 A dream to rival any of Nancy Thompson's nightmares, wouldn't you say? ;)
5:56 Is anyone else reminded of mischievous Morality Play devils? (Well, it would make sense to cast pretty teenage girls . . .)
6:45 If it were a choice between Russell and Jerk-and-a-Half . . . (Yeah, Marie knows she blew it.)
0:28 "Plain" in this context is something I think an English rather than an American character would say.
1:31 She means the 60s, right? (Now let me look up Jeff Chandler . . .)
2:05 "Long, curly hair? Dad???" Let me step out of the story now to say I think Heather didn't deliver this line very well. =S
2:46 She means this Cherish, I suppose.
2:54 So now her ex-boyfriend is forever "[the guy who looked like] Jeff Chandler"? No regrets, here! =)
3:45 "Have you seen my weed whacker?" Yeah, who needs Jeff Chandler when you can have Graham Lubbock?
4:21 "The people of Israel cry out for their freedom!" Is this significant or did the director settle for any old line?
4:51 They don't lower their voices at all, do they?
5:13 That guy behind them should have moved to another part of the theatre when he had the chance.
6:01 Hey, I just noticed the sister in the background! This is such a perfect first date for Marie, even though she tried to ruin it earlier!
6:48 A big thank you to YouTube user "Teamkickass2" for taping this when it aired and uploading it when there was no hope of ever getting a DVD release!
