    James' father must have had too much time on his hands if he could build a thing like that "little" treasure chest, right?

    I thought the end was funny how they got blasted away but instead of Jessie they ended up with Jessiebell. And the butler was EPIC! How did he just blast out of the floor like that at his age? lol. I also wish James will take Growly with him one day, it's so loyal to him. I really enjoyed this episode.

    Now that the TG storyline is all but done & over with, conventional wisdom would think that the writers would go back to their Hum Drum Melodrama, but I would say otherwise with this.

    - Ash & Dawn are busy fighting against each other with Piplup & Monferno. This is going to go really well...
    - Piplup fires off his Bubblebeam, & Monferno tries to Dig itself out of trouble, only to find out that it hit something hard. Man, those Dig TMs are Chinese pieces of #%@$!!
    - What?! Monferno has dug up a treasure chest?! Okay, I take back what I've just said back then. Now, how do we pry this thing open & get all the bling bling that's inside?
    - Just as they're pondering that thought, out come a bunch of so-called, "treasure hunters," who claim to be able to open anything. However, they do look suspicious...
    - The guy tries to take Ash's chest, but Ash claims that, "You'll take my treasure, when you're prying it out of my cold, dead hands!!"
    - Since that doesn't work, the treasure hunters reveal their true colors: TR!
    - But... just as they're reciting their motto, Ash's Pikachu takes the initiative & zaps them off into the wild blue yonder.

    M-M-M-Motto Breaker!!!

    It's a shame this doesn't happen anywhere near as often as I hope it should, but at least it saves me from muting my telly.
    - This time, they don't fly off that far, as this time, we know where they end up. That can only mean one thing: this ep is all about TR! Wonderful...
    - TR manage to intercept them once more, but this time, James gives a little more back-story on this chest. First & foremost, it is his. Second, it can only be opened with a specific verbal password. & last, but not least, it contains one of James' darkest secrets.
    - What is that secret? Well... it is a love letter for his ex-fiancee', Jessiebelle! Who would have thought?
    - Well... it seems to be that he was in love with her at first when the two of them were children, but just as soon as she made plans for her to be married with James, she doesn't like his pet Growlithe, & insists on replacing it with a Skitty.
    - James tries to open it by saying three random passwords, & the lid opens up, but not in a way that most anyone would think... it opens the lid... & reveals a rifle?! Oh $@%$!! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!!!
    - The automated rifle then blasts TR out to kingdom come, & folds back into the lid.
    - With them out of the way, Ash & the gang find a mansion, & knock on the door politely. Once the butler opens the door, he immediately recognizes the chest they're holding & lets them inside for some good old hospitality.
    - Little do they know, that this mansion belongs to James, so if he goes in there the way that he is now, that butler will immediately summon Jessiebelle here, & seeing as he doesn't want that to happen, they both opt for disguises, & rather clever ones at that.
    - Why are these disguises clever? Well... it fools the butler into thinking that Jessie is Jessiebelle, & that James is his own father. Yeah...
    - But here's another J Lo BUTT, James' pet Growlithe is here, & has no problem sniffing James out & compromising both their disguises.
    - With their cover blown, James orders his Mime Jr. to use Teeter Dance, thus confusing the poor butler, which gives him enough time to send him down a trapdoor.
    - Back in the living room, James explains that there is only one way out: an underground secret exit. "However..."
    - J Lo BUTT #2: Look! Up in the sky! Is it a Golbat Swarm? Is it a Dustox Swarm? Is it the International Police & Looker?? No!! It's Jessiebelle, in the flesh!! & she's coming... she's coming... she's coming for JAMES!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
    - Looks like that butler of his will do whatever it takes to see to it that Jessiebelle marries James. With no time to lose, they immediately make a run for the secret back exit, taking his pet & chest with him.
    - With the butler & Jessiebelle on their tails, they block the exit as soon as they got out. Now, he tries again to open the chest, & it goes nowhere again.
    - This time, the chest transforms into a mini-mecha! What the hell is that thing, a chest or a friggin' weapon of mass destruction?!
    - James uses his pet Growlithe to fight off this mutant chest, & after a hard-fought victory, the chest turns into a rocket & flies off into the wild blue yonder.
    - J Lo BUTT #3: That fight with the mutant chest gave Jessiebelle & the butler enough time to breach James' barricade, & now she's Mano e Mano with James.
    - In a desperate gambit, James pleads to Ash for his Pikachu to blast them off into god knows where, which he reluctantly does. However, just as they're going to fly away, Jessiebelle rushes towards his side.
    - The result? Jessiebelle goes off with James & Meowth, & Jessie takes Jessiebelle's hot-seat. After the two of them land on Terra Firma, Jessiebelle chases him off in the end.

    Well, I would guess that it does bring some comedy along with this. One thing about this is that I felt for James in this, as I'm a sworn enemy of love. It almost makes me feel sorry for him. Almost, but not quite...

    Alright episode, good to see Jessibelle back again, and the butler was amazing.

    Something I did have mixed feelings about however is the fact that James left Growlie behind AGAIN when he could have easily brought it with him. After all, I'm sure it would rather have been with it's beloved master then stuck in various mansions, and it could stand a chance against the Ash and Co.

    But on the other hand that would mean having to see it endure the same often unnecessarily brutal treatment that TR's other Pokemon suffer whenever they cross the twerps... Perhaps it was for the best then...

    Iliked this episode as I like episodes that go back to the past. Loved seeing Jessiebelle again ok she might be nuts lol but she makes me laugh loved how they kept the your not running properly at the end and Ashs oh nos made me laugh as well. I thought that password was gonna be growlie but in the end the password was even better than that typical James lol. It spooks me as well how alike Jessiebelle and Jessie look as well. A filler but a good filler IMO

    This episode was "ok".

    Compared to the original, where they allowed a boatload of sketch material (weird gym equipment... yeah 'gym equipment' sure) & Vileplume essentially date rape drugging James & whips, it was too controlled and safe.

    The storyline wasn't as good either. Compared to the TG finale, this was worlds better, and compared to the general writing in DP it was above average.

    I lol'd at.... wow I don't remember what I lol'd at that's sad.

    The end when it just sort of blasted off was like "..8|" I think that could've been done a lot less awkwardly.

    Not one of the best episodes, but I liked it. I always liked Growlie, so it was nice seeing it again.

    Worst. Episode. Ever.

    I don't think I have too much else to say on the matter to be completely honest. The treasure chest transforming was completely ridiculous, even by TR standards.

    Haha I actually love this episode, it reminded me of a Kanto episode (probably just Jessiebelle). But it was full of wit, a fun episode and TR and Ash and co. worked together again - which I love. I really wanted James to take Growlie with him though, shame he didn't. But a great filler episode IMO.
    nothing lasts forever, but this is getting good now.

    I actually liked this episode. I was expecting it to be a bit boring, but it was much, much better than the Pikachu-Piplup sttick together episode (worst episode of DP).

    I have to say though I can't explain why but James' Butler is very, very annoying.

    This episode was ok... It was great to see James' Growlithe again. It was cool to find out that Growlithe knew Dig. Odd how the letter James cannot stand is a flattering letter to Jessibelle, back when he was a child. It was funny to see the box with the letter just turned into a rocket and flew away. It was different how TR actually "asked" the gang to blast them off for a change.

    "Holy Matrimony" has always been one of my favorite episodes of Pokemon, and was easily my favorite episode of the first season. It was nice to see return appearances by James's parents, Growlie, and Jessibelle for this episode, but... I don't know, it wasn't all it was cracked up to be. I can't quite put my finger on it, but something about the episode was lacking compared to its predecessor. Maybe it was the contrived treasure box, it just seemed like a convenient excuse to bring back familiar characters (why can't they do it in a better way in Unova? I miss the old recurring characters) It is cool seeing Jessibelle again, and I commend Michelle Knotz for reproducing the dual vocal work of Rachel Lillis, but it wasn't as good as it could be. I did like Jessibelle accidentally blasting off, though. LOL

    I actually liked this episode. Seeing Jessibelle and Growlithe again in this episode, brought back memories of "Holy Matrimony" from the Indigo saga. It's cool that Growlithe learned Dig, but It's sad that James left it behind again.
    Jessibelle blasting was a funny moment..... but the Treasure Box transfroming into a Rocket was really odd.

    Kojiro's story is quite sad in my opinion. He has almost to none freedom and has to do everything that their parents want them to. Generally a fun filler to me but not too great. Kojiro find a getaway by begging Pikachu to use Juuman Boruto to send them blast off. It is weird for Rumika to go with Kojiro and Nyarth while Musashi is staying. Kind of lacking continuity to the next episode.
