Loved this episode!
15 February 2014 | by Ry20See all my reviews

Great episode <3 Loved the references to Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Sixteen Candles & The Breakfast Club. Very heart-warming episode, as most of them usually are. Going back to the '80s with the music, fashion & references in general. Must say that Brooke's dress at the dance was absolutely breathtaking! Also, the chemistry between Nathan and Haley is always so nice to see, they are truly amazing actors. The episode is also a tribute to John Hughes which was a really nice touch. The ending scene with Nathan and Haley was absolutely adorable - you'll love it if you've seen Sixteen Candles. Overall an enjoyable episode with a heart-warming touch :)
