Yay for Brock again!! Much missed! I wonder if he was getting it on with Ash's mother! And what exactly did Ivy do to him? o: This episode was fun to watch and Team Rocket's tent thing was so crazy. Another yay for Gary Oak!

I was very pleased to see that Brock returned in this episode. I wasn't expecting him to appear, so it was a nice surprise. The battle with Team Rocket in this episode had some funny parts. I loved watching Muk hug Jessie and Lickitung licking Muk (Muk doesn't look that tasty...) Also, I thought that Tracey's
crush on obsession with Prof. Oak was creepy.

Great to see both Brock and Gary reappearing after some time. I think this episode was perfectly made for reintroducing those two and I still just wonder what happened between Brock and Professor Ivy. Must been something beyond the usual rejections lol.

Brock's back. Yay. It was funny seeing Mimey and Brock fight over doing the chores and whatnot. I hated how Ash tried to brag about his wins. He seemed so immature doing that. :/

Nice to see Brock again after a long time, I liked his reaction when Ash and Misty asked him about Professor Ivy, I guess she rejected him and he came back to Ash's house. It's funny when he and Mr. Mime was fighting to do the chores for Delia. Overall, this was a good episode.

This is easily one of my favourite episodes in the Orange Islands, because it's really funny and everyone gets a fair amount of screen time here. Brock's return also led to one of my favourite gags. Whenever Professor Ivy was mentioned he would shiver on the floor with "THAT NAME!" as his reaction. This episode also ends with quite possibly my favourite cliffhanger in the entire show, as the mysterious hooded person who saves everyone turns out to be Gary, and as a result Ash suddenly demands a battle with him to find out who's stronger.

I wonder what Professor Ivy did to Brock to make him act like that?
She had to have done more than just reject him in the way he's used to...

Exactly. Brock is showing Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) Symptoms. I'm thinking Professor Ivy might have crossed the line way too much for young Brock....

It was nice to see Brock again even tho he seemed traumatized by what happened with professor Ivy. ^^; Muk fighting against Team rocket was cool and I was glad when Gary arrived and helped with his Nidoqueen.

I think she rejected his advances also hee hee. Brock probably left her lab heartbroken cuz of that and that's how I think he ended up in Pallet town in this episode. :3

Brock coming back was awesome and Tracey feeling awkward when he met Oak was funny. Gary saving every one from the TRio was the best scene. 7/10

Gary seemed mature for a change and I was relieved to have Brock back in the show again. Tracey finally meeting Oak was a good moment.

"COME ON MR. MIME, I WANT TO SWEEP TODAY!"
One of my favorite episodes. I love Brock. Too bad the whole situation with Ivy was never explained. Poor Brock-o.

As a huge Takeshi fan, I was relieved to have him back. I guess Uchikido-hakase dumped him. Kenji's nervousness when meeting Okido-hakase was adorable, and I chuckled when Betbeton smothered Satoshi. Watching Shigeru destroy the tent with Nidoqueen was great, and he seemed really mature now.
It was great to see Brock return in this episode. I liked Ash's surprise when he goes sliding into the kitchen and finds Brock there. I also loved the flashback where Delia and Mimey walked all over him and don't even notice him. Lol.
