Did You Know?


The music that plays in the background when Nicole imagines her tombstone is "Toccata and Fugue in D minor" by Johann Sebastian Bach. See more »


During Nicole's flashback to what seems to be before a martial arts tournament, Nicole asks her mother how much time she has left until the tournament begins. Her mother answers with exact times until important events of her life in minutes. However, in this flashback Nicole is in about junior high, so her mother's estimates are exceedingly understated. For example, she claims that Nicole has 54,321 minutes until she graduates, which is roughly equal to thirty eight days. See more »

How heartwarming
13 October 2016 | by ericstevensonSee all my reviews

This episode features Nicole acknowledging the fact that she's the most rational person in her entire family. She begins to wonder if she really did make the right decision by marrying Richard. We see her imagine what her life would be like if she took other options. Well, we actually show her a flashback and then have her imagine things in her flashback. A weird way to tell a story, but still nice. What's great is how fast these jokes go by. It's nice to see the writers take another dig at alternative medicine. Instead of her just marrying someone again, she just dies from a lack of real treatment in one theory.

We even get to see Nicole's parents! It's great to learn more about her past. It's even better we learn more about the Watterson family's past! As you might have guessed, we go back to the scenes of Gumball as a toddler from "The Origins". That episode made me wish that it had showed when Anais became a member of the family. And guess what, in this episode we get to see that too! Baby Anais really is adorable and so is this episode for having Nicole, a character enraged by idiocy, realizing that she sincerely loves her family and doesn't care how dysfunctional they are. It's great for such a hilarious show to be heartwarming as well. ****
