- ``Architect Rap'' (my title)
[Chorus sung to the tune of ``Momma Said Knock You Out'' by L.L. Cool J.
Also seen in
``Sam's Swan Song'' (#130)]
Sam: Five, six, seven, eight!
Here comes a man who's a friend of mine.
He's all the way live 'cause he's got the rhyme.
So throw ya hands up in the air.
Let's all (?) jam to M-T-Square!
Marshall: From the Roman Coliseum to the modern art museums,
I'm here to teach you that you can reach to.
That form follows function, and that is the key.
You've just got to think architecturally.
Get live, Sam!
Sam: He's gonna build your house!
Marshall: I'm gonna build your house!
Both: Architects build your house!

- Favorite Lines:
- ``Isn't my widdle baby girl pwecious??'' - Marshall
- ``You can't learn cool. You have to live it.'' - Clarissa
- ``Oh, yeah. They're... they're hatin', all right.'' - Marshall
- Favorite Scenes:
- Other good stuff:
- Weak Points and Mistakes:
- The cop who tells the Darlings to ``have an outstanding evening''
is the same actor who played the letter carrier in
``Urge to Drive'' (#104)
and told Clarissa and Ferguson to ``have an outstanding day.''
- Dave Harris notes that the actor who plays Bowser Buttinsky in this episode
is the person immediately behind Clarissa at the protest in
``Clarissa Gets Arrested'' (#164).
However, in the latter episode,
Clarissa calls the marcher just behind her ``Lenny Lesterlink''.
- In the scene where Sam is talking about his dad's reaction to the movie
``Teenage Mutant Cheerleaders V: Pep-rally of Blood'',
you can see the words ``Baby Prison'' written on the side of Clarissa's trunk
at the foot of her bed;
this is also quite noticeable in the next episode,
``Sick Days'' (#113).
- Speaking of that movie,
it must be the creation of film great Turner B. Gerhard,
whom Ferguson says is famous for his
``mutant cheerleader'' movies when he interviews him in
- This is the second appearance of Marshall's ``Gherkins a Go-Go'' model from
``No T.V.'' (#103).
DYN: Various lists
- Clarissa goes punk again in
``Alter Ego'' (#157)
when she dresses as ``Jade from Long Island''.
In both episodes, she uses the expression ``hatin' '' --
in this case, to describe her nose-ring.
Also in both episodes, she wears a nose-ring, although it's only a clip-on;
``School Picture'' (#102),
when she was trying to convince Janet to let her dress how she wanted,
she told her, ``It's not like I'm getting my nose pierced!''
- This is one of many episodes in which Clarissa assures us that
embarrassment is her least favorite emotion.
