I actually really liked this episode! It has great writing, Olivia was mature and not annoying, Morris was well played. 5 out of 5 and best of the "Rydell Saga".

I agree that it was really good! I wish they would get on with this Morrie plot though!

Okat this rating system is confusing? Is Five Drama festivals good or is One Morrie Rydell good?

I think this album has been refreshing, at least for me. The Sandwhich Initiative was a bit rough the first couple listens, but so far this album had been my favorite album in awhile. I like character development which has been a huge factor about this album and I love it. This episode was very well written and thought out.

The scene in this episode reminds me of one of the (many) reasons why I like Kelly Stables, and think it's a good thing whenever they release her from the goofier parts and let her really go to work. She does those poignant moments well and has ever since she came on the show. Most of it is fairly as expected, but at the point when she says, "You're right..." I get a bit teary.

There's also a couple of other fairly minor acting nuances that are interesting; Olivia sounds a bit like Camilla when she asks for the money back, an interesting sort of 'familial resemblance'. Morrie also says the word 'good' at the end with a certain awkwardness, as though he's not used to the word, which fits what we're coming to know about his character.

This isn't necessarily a plot hole, but it does seem a bit strange that they would stop doing the fundraising and rely totally on the phone call, which they candidly admitted sounded suspicious, after reaching the halfway mark. After all, if they made half the amount in a quarter of the time available, they could have kept going and presumably made the rest, and maybe even some to spare. And it seems the motivation for that would've been strong, since even if they didn't need the extra money, if they had more, they could splurge on a few extra unnecessary niceties, like maybe having a paid-for meal and not having to transport bread and lunch meat all the way from Odyssey ;) -- or else have the remainder after the trip to bolster the club's apparently limited finances. I guess they're still young, though, and maybe the extra work didn't appeal to them, or these logistical details didn't cross their minds. The fundraising scenes worked, though, as a veteran of many youth trip fundraisers. ;)

Rydell's mask is slipping off, a bit at a time. This episode leaves a few unanswered questions about his resources, though, which I hope we can find more about soon.
