Trivia

The geeks celebrate when Bill makes a diving catch in the gym class softball game, even though it's only the first out. Neil comments that there are only 8 and 2/3 innings to go. In softball, as opposed to baseball, there are 7 innings in a game, not 9. See more »

One of my favorite episodes of the show
6 July 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

One of my favorite episodes of the show, score.

The funniest bits of the episode were the baseball playing ones. The music and over-dramatic faces make them a delight to sit through. I also love the scenes of Harold and Jean. They are incredibly underrated characters and I just loved how they reacted to Lindsay's diary. and it led Harold to express himself a little more. Them having old-people sex was pretty funny, especially the reaction of Sam and Neil's faces. Neil will grow up to be a perv.

This episode also develops Linday's and Kim's relationship better. There are a few people who detest Kim, but I don't see why. Sure, she is an evil bitch but she has her reasons. It was cute to see her have hurt feelings and happy when Lindsay finally tried to win her back.

This was yet again another excellent episode. Five stars?
