Fun poll

Post by socalledfan » May 9th 2001, 2:16 pm

Hi all. I just thought I would take an informal poll. Can everyone please tell me the following... (I've included my answers)

Favorite over-all episode: Self Esteem
Favorite moment between 2 or more characters: Angela and Brian in the street in the final episode.
Favorite, like, quote: "School is a battlefield...for your heart."
Least favorite moment between 2 characters: Jordan and Rayanne...enough said.
Event that most resembled an event in my own life: Sharon and Angela crying in the girls' room, realizing their friendship had changed.
I got chills when: Jordan and Angela nearly kiss against the fence outside of the dance ("The Life of Brian")
I cringed when: Brian tells Delia he'd rather go to the dance with "the other person"
I cried when: Angela and Rayanne recited lines from the school play
I smiled biggest when: Jordan grabbed Angela's hand in "Self Esteem"
I laughed hardest when: Angela takes her coffee "black, with 3 or 4 sugars."
I hope that Angela chose (Jordan or Brian): Jordan for now, but Brian some day
I hope that Angela and Rayanne make up (yes or no): Yes, but after a long time
Character whose personality is most like mine: Angela (introspective, emotional)
Character I'd most like to befriend: Rickie
Character who grew the most over that year: Jordan

Have fun!

Here Goes:
1. Favorite Episode: Weekend (I know I'm gonna get hazed for this one but at least I'm honest.)
2. Favorite Moment: Self Esteem, Jordan grabs her hand. No contest for me.
3.Favorite Quote: My life is different people kicking me out of different rooms. Danielle (I know how she feels sometimes)
4.Least Favorite Moment: Anything between Hallie and Patty. Tension so thick you could scoop it up and bottle it.
5. Event that resembled an event in my life: Tough one.
6. I got chills when Angela approaches Jordan's car in Dancing in the dark.
7. I cringed when Angela approaches Jordan at the pool table at the Buffalo Tom show. You just knew what was coming.
8. I cried when: MTV stopped airing re-runs in Fall '98.
9. I smiled biggest when: Please refer to #2.
10. I laughed hardest when: Brian says "Oh My God" in Weekend. Honorable mention: Graham says "Go to school" when Danielle asks about the parents having to meet her boyfriend if they already knew him. Honorable mention#2 Jordan asks Brian, "Why are you here?" in Dancing in the Dark.
11. Angela should choose: Tough Call. You know she wanted Jordan. You also know Brian was better for her. My opinion; She marries jordan and two years later divorces him and spends the rest of her life with Krakow.
12. Should Angela and RayAnne make up: Yes
13. Which personality is most like mine: Brian, Always fallin' for that unreachable girl.
14. I would most like to befriend: Rayanne
15. Character which grew the most: Patty- Bess Armstrong is a great actress. (Check out nothing in common with Tom Hanks and Jackie Gleason. 1987) I think if you had to choose one person who could have stolen the show from Angela it was Patty. She grew to be the focus of the show. Angela's relationship with Patty was turning into the focus of the show. Rayanne desperately seeks her approval very early on. As does Ricky. Graham....enough said. Danielle is dying to get Mom's attention. And the fact that Jordan has not yet met Patty builds huge drama and tension as the show winds to an end...How would their relationship have grown had there been a second season? What does Hallie think of Patty?...Jealous? It seems that a major theme in the show became how everyone perceived Patty's opinion of themself. I digress.

K-man, thanks for taking my poll! I was beginning to think that no one would ever reply to that one!

Favorite over-all episode: the last ep (I can never remember titles)
Favorite moment between 2 or more characters: Angela and Jordan making up in the hall
Favorite, like, quote: "...if they made a yearbook of what really happened..it would be a really depressing book."
Least favorite moment between 2 characters: Jordan and Rayanne...enough said. I second that.
Event that most resembled an event in my own life: the uncomfortable scene when Angela asked Jordan out to a movie
I got chills when: Jordan and Angela kissed for the first time
I cringed when: when Angela asked Jordan out
I cried when: Angela and Jordan argued in his garage, and then when he came to officially break up and then when Angela and Rayanne recited lines from the school play. those are the top three
I smiled biggest when: Jordan sang "Red" and Angela thought it was about her
I laughed hardest when: Angela takes her coffee "black, with 3 or 4 sugars." yeah, me too!!
I hope that Angela chose (Jordan or Brian): Jordan for her high school sweet heart and neither for her husband
I hope that Angela and Rayanne make up (yes or no): Yes, but after a long time
Character whose personality is most like mine: Angela (introspective, emotional)
Character I'd most like to befriend: Rickie
Character who grew the most over that year: I would have to say Rayanne. she overcame so much. in the beginning she was irresponsible and partied all the time. but over the season she got clean, calmed down, and truly learned the meaning of friendship (probably more than anyone on the show).

sorry for leaving so many of the same answers as you, but I agreed. a lot of those questions are so tough to answer. I think the ones I wrote down are just the ones I could think of immediately.

I cried when: Jordan didn't show up to meet the parents in "Why Jordan Can't Read"

Ooo...these questions are really hard to answer and so I have had to give two answers to most of the questions because I couldn't decide between them!

Here goes:-

Favourite over-all episode: 'Self-Esteem' (for obvious reasons) and 'The Zit'
Favourite moment between 2 characters: Delia and Rickie dancing at that World Happiness Dance in 'The Life of Brian' (so cool!) and Brian telling the principal he would sue him for harrassment in 'Guns and Gossip'...Go Krakow!
Favourite quote: (I had to really think about this one 'cos there's loads!) "There's the people who you've known forever, who know you in this way that other people can't, because they've seen you change....they've LET you change"!
Least favourite moment between two characters: Angela and Jordan in THAT house in 'Pressure'....it makes you feel so uncomfortable for her!
Event resembling my own life: All of the rows Angela has with her mum!
I got the chills when: Mr Katimski reads out the Shakespeare sonnet to the class and Jordan realises he's in love with Angela! Hurrah! "My mistess' eyes are nothing like the sun....."
I cringed when: Angela asks Jordan to the cinema.....and to meet her parents! ARGH! How embarrassing! (I also cringe when I see Graham and Hallie together!)
I cried when: I ALWAYS cry at the end of 'So-Called Angels' and 'The Zit'...they get me everytime!
I smiled biggest when: Jordan takes Angela's hand in the corridor in 'Self-Esteem' (to Buffalo Tom's music)....about time too!!!
I laughed hardest when: Danielle asks 'did you mean foreplay?' and Graham, trying not to react, coughs on his food... I thought that entire scene was brilliantly acted.
I hope that Angela choses: BRIAN!!!!! (especially after that look she gave him at the end of episode 19....let's face it, Jordan blew his chance!)
I hope that Angela and Rayanne: DON'T make up! I think she had a better relationship with Sharon....they always come through for each other in the end!
Character I am most like: Angela!!
Character I would most like to befriend: Brain or Rickie
Character who grew the most over that year: Sharon (who changed so much in every way and is the most mature) and Rickie (who went through so much in his personal life and circumstances and finally admitted to Delia that he was gay)

Thanks socalledfan, that was fun!

Oh...you made that post on the 4th? How disappointing, Adam, I had
assumed, somehow, that my computer was receiving these posts from
the future.

"And dance by the light of the moon!"
