  • Mercy on July 15th, 2009 - 9:15am


    Now we know about the snowflake incident!
    GO AIO!

  • Mercy on July 15th, 2009 - 9:21am


    I’m throwing this question out to everyone out there:
    if you could be anyone in Odyssey,who would you be??
    PLEASE ANSWER!!!! I’m doing a survey with everyones answers soooooooooo PLEASE ANSWER!!!

  • tyvin’jr on July 15th, 2009 - 9:25am


    that’s pretty cool…

  • tyvin’jr on July 15th, 2009 - 9:48am


    hey mercy I would be Eugene or Jason because there cool and smart.or I would be Jarid or Marvin.and I LOVE! odyssey!!!

  • Danielle on July 15th, 2009 - 11:20am


    i’ve been wondering!!

  • Lindsey S. on July 15th, 2009 - 11:28am


    That explanation does not make any sense at all! I mean, who is going to be cutting someone’s hair in the garage in the dead of winter? The garage would be freezing!!! So Bob and Jessie, please ask the producers what THEY meant when they put “don’t you remember the snowflakes” in the script. I would really appreciate it if they would answer my question on the next Producers Q and A podcast. Oh and Mercy, If I couldn’t be myself, then I would be Connie. We are a lot alike.

  • dude on July 15th, 2009 - 11:41am


    WOUDEN(how ever you spell it) or marven!

  • MERCY on July 15th, 2009 - 11:49am


    i would be Marvin and Taimica and Ryan and Ed, those are all my favorites

  • sidney on July 15th, 2009 - 11:51am


    To answer your question Mercy, I wouldn’t want to be anyone in Odyssey. But if I had to pick someone, then I would choose either Mandy,or Liz.

  • Rachel on July 15th, 2009 - 11:59am


    I’d be Wooton. He’s great, and soooo goofy.

  • Tay on July 15th, 2009 - 12:12pm


    I don’t really get that explaination. It clearly sounded in the show like [i]Ed[/i] did something. Possibly with paper snowflakes?

  • realMarizona on July 15th, 2009 - 12:13pm


    I’d be Connie or Mandy. And yay for the snowflake incident!

  • TIm on July 15th, 2009 - 12:34pm


    That was…. interesting…. OK anyway 🙂

  • izzy on July 15th, 2009 - 1:10pm


    I would be conie

  • Anonymous on July 15th, 2009 - 1:29pm


    I’d be katrina

  • JEnnifer on July 15th, 2009 - 1:35pm


    I would be Lucy….or Whit…

  • hl on July 15th, 2009 - 2:58pm


    I would be Wooton, I would love to have a slide coming down from my house!!

  • original Joe on July 15th, 2009 - 3:57pm


    Your anomaly has peaked my proverbial interest. I would be Odyssey’s resident college student and in all modesty, a recognized genius at Campbell County Community College, Eugene Meltser. To borrow the colloquialism.

  • Connie 2 on July 15th, 2009 - 5:15pm


    I agree with TAY! It did sound that way.. because of the sizors (sp?) and everyone dd not want ED to use them!

  • BREE on July 15th, 2009 - 5:54pm


    I would be Jason if i could be a guy, but since I’m a girl I’d be, maybe Aubrey Shepherd, because we have the same name but I spell it Aubree, and I go by Bree. Or I might be Tasha, although their are some things i don’t like about her.

  • drew on July 15th, 2009 - 6:07pm


    Why was this such a short podcast? It was the shortest I’ve ever heard. Why would Ed’s dad still cut Ed’s hair while he was destracted?

  • Natalie on July 15th, 2009 - 6:08pm


    i would be karen or donna or wooton or tasha

  • BMW on July 15th, 2009 - 6:55pm


    i would be Tamika…she is the bomb.com…

  • Audrey on July 15th, 2009 - 7:10pm


    Mercy, I ould probably be Lucy or Donna.

  • abigail on July 15th, 2009 - 7:34pm


    i agree with tay. it sounded like maybe possibly he cut paper snowflakes and ended up with stitches or somethingk like that. and i would be either Mandy or Lucy. i am not sure which

  • janessa on July 15th, 2009 - 8:56pm


    interesting….At least we know what happened with the snowflakes.

  • The Wolf on July 15th, 2009 - 9:23pm


    Mercy, I would be Jason.

  • LNH on July 15th, 2009 - 9:56pm



  • cHELS! on July 15th, 2009 - 10:19pm


    I am a big Odyssey fan, I’ve heard almost every episode. This means that I have very high standards, so when an explanation for such a highly marketed question is answered like that, it’s really disappointing. I wanted to like the story behind the infamous snowflake incident, but I just couldn’t. I don’t know about the rest of humanity, but if my Grandpa did something to my Dad, I wouldn’t automatically assume that my Dad would do the exact same thing to me in an entirely different situation.

  • Chels! on July 16th, 2009 - 6:55am


    I would either be, or marry, Jared, just cause he’s cool. But for someone who is more like me… hhmmm.. maybe a mix between Liz and Connie.

  • Abbie on July 16th, 2009 - 7:33am


    Hmm. . . that was pretty interesting, though i thought the incident would involve paper snowflakes. Oh well. But i was soooo excited to learn what in the world snowflakes had to do with sunday morning scramble. Oh Mercy, i would be Connie. Oh and just one more thing, maybe in the next Q and A you could explain the barnyard animal incident. I’d really appreciate it. But anyway, i love you AIO! 🙂

  • Rambo on July 16th, 2009 - 8:29am


    That explination didn’t make sense to me! Marven says “remember that time we were MAKING snowflakes” And both Marven and Elaine said snowflakeS, plural.

  • rebecca on July 16th, 2009 - 8:33am


    I’d be Jason.

  • lad on July 16th, 2009 - 8:44am


    I would be Lucy

  • odysseyfreak on July 16th, 2009 - 8:54am


    what’s the ” snowflake incadent”?

  • diana on July 16th, 2009 - 9:05am


    I don’t get that but ok.??:)

  • Me on July 16th, 2009 - 11:14am


    OK, that wuz kinda strange…
    Um, Mercy, I would want 2 bee Marvin or Xavier, even though I’m a girl. LOL I love those guys!!

  • Me on July 16th, 2009 - 11:15am


    Oh, and I luv that story!

  • Molly on July 16th, 2009 - 11:30am


    Hehehe, thats so funny! 😀

    I would be Connie or Lucy (Of course being Connie would be kinda wierd, because i would stay 16 for ten years) ;p

  • clh737 on July 16th, 2009 - 12:03pm


    Seriously… I thought it was with paper snowflakes… that makes more sense than what they said… Paper snowflakes can be messy and can also be ruined very easily… I would think that Ed is just not good with scissors 😛 and therefore can’t cut his son’s hair OR make paper snowflakes… w/e… anyway… I would like to be Trent DeWhite if I could be someone on Odyssey…

  • Lindsey S. on July 16th, 2009 - 12:39pm


    Hey Mercy, how old are you and how long have you been a fan of AIO?

  • Pippin on July 16th, 2009 - 3:23pm



  • lizi on July 16th, 2009 - 4:28pm


    i would totally be connie. she makess me laugh.

  • A.K. on July 16th, 2009 - 4:39pm


    I want to lisen to this! I want to know the snowflake thing!

  • Skyeler on July 16th, 2009 - 4:51pm


    the very first time i listened to sunday morning scramble my dad made some joke about our family being on odyssey we are always late for church

  • Lauren on July 16th, 2009 - 6:28pm


    I have red hair and I am always curious, so I would be 1/2 Connie (she has reddish-brown hair doesn’t she??) but then I have a quick temper (heh heh:)) so the other 1/2 of me would be Lisa Mulligan. I HEART ADVETURES IN ODYSSEY!

  • LNH on July 16th, 2009 - 8:35pm


    MERCY: Who is Ryan, from what episode is he from, and why do you want to be him?

  • Samone on July 16th, 2009 - 9:07pm


    Ummm MERCY…Iwould totally be TAMIKA WASHINGTON!!

  • taylor on July 16th, 2009 - 9:40pm


    hey mercy i would be wooton! he is so cool! anyway don’t really get the snowflake thing? OH Well

  • lad on July 17th, 2009 - 7:36am


    That was what I was thinking Abigail

  • LNH on July 17th, 2009 - 8:53am


    Hey I just listen to the episode (sunday morning scramble) last night, and AIO HAD MADE A MISTAKE IN THEIR EXPLANATION. Marvin specifically says in the one of the first scenes to his father “…remember when you making the snowflakes…” Which clearly indicates the fallacy of the current explanation, and an illusion to the REAL, more applicable one. ALSO WHY DO THE NEWEST COMMENTS APPEAR ON THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE? NEW COMMENTS SHOULD BE AT THE TOP.

  • chels! on July 17th, 2009 - 9:23am


    Hey, AIO team, this whole blogging thing is really cool. Good idea!

  • a.k. on July 17th, 2009 - 3:57pm


    I listened to it today!!! YAY! Mercy, I would be Lisa Mulligan. She’s so sweet!!(Well, to animals that is!) P.S. I wish I would be the first to comment!!!

  • (: anna :) on July 17th, 2009 - 4:08pm


    i dont get the snow flake thing. i think there is a different explanation but ed is too embarassed to tell

  • aubrey on July 17th, 2009 - 5:12pm



  • chels! on July 17th, 2009 - 6:50pm


    Thanks Conie! I love AIO!

  • Mercy on July 18th, 2009 - 9:12am


    Lindsay S:
    I will be 13 this Fall & I have been listening to Odyssey ever since I could speak……
    Everyone: the Mercy that posted on July 15th is NOT me.
    Soooo that’s kinda my answer to you LHN.
    CLH737 & Rambo:(who both posted on July 16th) You are so totally right!
    any other questions, anybody?

  • lad on July 18th, 2009 - 10:39am


    I argee Chels!

  • anna on July 18th, 2009 - 10:44am


    hey mercy i would be jason because he is a boy and i am a tomboy

  • lilu on July 18th, 2009 - 10:46am


    im from india and a misshionary and im 10

  • anna on July 18th, 2009 - 10:54am


    that snowflake thing was wered

  • BETH on July 18th, 2009 - 11:38am


    That was kind of weird…. I agree, who would be cutting someones hair in the garage in winter. That would be really cold! I thought it should have been something like, Ed was trying to help one of his kids cut out snowflakes and he cut their hand instead. 🙁 That would make alittle more sense.

    Also I don’t really know who I would want to be, but some of my favorite characters are: Whit, Connie, Eugene, Jack, Jimmy, Lucy…..well, almost all of them! 🙂

  • tammy on July 18th, 2009 - 2:15pm


    I will be eather Connie,Donna,Tamika or Kaaaatttiiinnnaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! go AIO AIOAIO eieio

  • David on July 18th, 2009 - 3:04pm


    Mercy I would be Jason or Wooton, their both realy cool.

  • Liv on July 18th, 2009 - 3:12pm


    Yeah I kinda thought it would have to do something about paper snowflakes too. Oh well. Anyways Mercy, I can’t really answer your question – I wouldn’t exactly want to be anybody! 🙂

  • Emily on July 18th, 2009 - 3:26pm


    I liked the podcast! I didn’t notice Marvin said “Making snowflakes” until I read the comments, so it doesn’t make sense.
    Mercy: I would be Donna Barclay.

  • chloe on July 18th, 2009 - 3:51pm


    Well mercy,if i had to pick someone it would be connie.I like her, she is my favorite character.I LOVE AIO!!!!!! And sometimes it gets on my brothers and sisters NERVES because i listen to it so much!!! And just to let you guys know, i listen to it almost every night when i get in the shower!!!!

  • Grace on July 18th, 2009 - 5:03pm


    Finally! THANK YOU ODDSEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • luke on July 18th, 2009 - 6:47pm


    hey mercy i would be Jason

  • aVY on July 18th, 2009 - 10:03pm



  • LNH on July 18th, 2009 - 11:24pm



  • Chels! on July 18th, 2009 - 11:46pm


    Noah: I don’t know if you’ll read this, but you said in a previous post that you are the 1# Odyssey fan, and that there isn’t an Odyssey question that you can’t answer. So I’m throwing this out to you – what is Mr. Barclay’s full name?

  • mikel on July 19th, 2009 - 1:50am


    If i was some on odyssey i would have to be tamika cuz me and her are alot alike we always saspect or brothers first.and if i was a boy than i would have to b rodney or something but not that bad bcuz i would get a spanking.:( but i really like adventure in odyssey i have listened to it as i travel.and my dream is to bcome a voice on there.and to stay a christian and with gods help i can acomplish that!!so god bless and good nite every one.

  • matthew on July 19th, 2009 - 5:57am



  • abbie M on July 19th, 2009 - 7:31am


    I like to listen to Sunday Morning Scramble, but what in the world does Ed’s experience with scissors have to do with his father’s experience. I definitely thought that it would involve PAPER snowflakes. At least that makes more sense, doesn’t it???????????? ;P

  • hl on July 19th, 2009 - 11:19am


    Hey, where is “No Way Out” part 2? I really wanted to listen to it and it’s not showing up!?!

  • sarah on July 19th, 2009 - 3:06pm


    I love Bernard and Eugene together it always makes me laugh

  • Nate on July 19th, 2009 - 5:44pm


    I’d be Eugene:):P:D

  • mie on July 19th, 2009 - 6:33pm


    yeah i agree with everyone…the snowflake explaination didnt really make sense. it was kinda boring… oh well, I still luv odyssey(even tho im kinda old for it, ha ha)!
    Oh and Mercy I would be….Donna b/c i relate to her (im an older sister too)and she’s pretty cool. I also like Lucy Shults cause she’s sweet and has gone thru so many cool experiences as a school reporter in Odyssey. oh and i agree with chels, this blogging thing is pretty cool! (wow i used the word cool alot LOL) 🙂

  • jeremiah on July 20th, 2009 - 8:40am

    If I Could Be Anyone On AIO I Would Be Connie!!

  • lu on July 20th, 2009 - 12:18pm

  • Samone on July 20th, 2009 - 12:22pm


    You use very educated words. (That’s a compliment btw.)Oh and, Odyssey contradicts itself. Blog me back plz. I don’t like it when no one responds to me… Syl.

  • Samone on July 20th, 2009 - 12:23pm


    Btw i’m not the same Samone as above.

    I thought the snowflake incident had to do with paper snowflakes.

  • nicole on July 20th, 2009 - 8:08pm


    I would defenetly be Connie if I had to chose and I would marry Wooton or Jason. He is soooo cool!!

    I’m the biggest Odyssey fan out of you all!!!! I have about 75 Odyssey or more on CD and I listen to them every night so does my 11, 6, and 4 year old brothers. By the way i’m 12 and I live in New Zealand.

  • nicole on July 20th, 2009 - 8:10pm

  • zach on July 21st, 2009 - 7:38am

Thanks

  • KATIE on July 21st, 2009 - 10:17am


    hey mercey its me again, i have a question and if you can get back to me about it it would be cool! well is there going to be a way that everyone can see the survey when its all done that would be kinda neat you know you should try to ask the publisher of this website if you can post it on the website if not just put it on the blog that would be good enough

  • CLAY on July 21st, 2009 - 12:18pm


    ha ha thats funny

    I’m so glad I’m not the only one who loves Odyssey.
    Thank you so much Odyssey

  • Emily on July 21st, 2009 - 5:59pm


    I would probably be Connie she reminds me ALOT of me! (u know likes to talk alot, always day dreaming and eager to please :D) The snow flake incident was not what I expected. It kind of reminds me of when my friend comes in 2 church one day w/ her foot all wrapped up and me and my other friends are like “Oh my word, what did you do!?!?” and she goes “I dropped a shampoo bottle on it!” and we’re like “Oh you HAVE 2 come up w/ something better than that!!!!”

  • gregory on July 21st, 2009 - 6:09pm


    jerimiah i hope you have a good life…. I also E-mailed you so check ur e-mail and tell isreal(cheese)i said hi and tell your WHOLE family good luck write back…!!!

    {§ÄL\/ÄTîôÑ ßôy}

  • Emily H. on July 21st, 2009 - 6:20pm


    If y’all could be a character on AIO (one that doesn’t already exist) what would they be like?
    -What would their personality be?
    -What would they look like?
    -What would his/her name be?
    Hope I hear from y’all soon! Thanks!!:)

  • KATIE on July 21st, 2009 - 9:31pm


    cassyilita you cant be jimmy cause hes a boy just joking and hey by the way this bloging is soo cool how people can talk all over the world i bet even in Afica ok got to go casue down in florida the sun is out and we have to go swimming bye

  • Pierce on July 22nd, 2009 - 7:11am


    I think that when they made up the explanation to the “snowflake incident,” they didn’t want it to be to ummmm… grusome, like it would’ve had to have been if it was Ed cutting someone’s hand with scissors. Cutting a hand with scissors is definitley not a very safe explanation if you have a 5 year old listening to the show. BTW, Mercy I would Probably like to Sam Johnson or Alex Jefferson, just because they are both a little like me, and cause nobody would ever think of them.

  • arissa on July 22nd, 2009 - 9:33am


    Mercy, i love julie she is so sweet and kind like me just kidding

  • Mercy on July 22nd, 2009 - 9:35am


    that’s a totally awesome idea!!!I didn’t even think about it!! Maybe there is a way that can happen……
    But that would be soooooooooo totally awesome!!
    Doo you think we could do that AIO?!?!?
    EVERYONE: sorry I haven’t posted in a while!!! And thank you for all your answers!!!!!!!!

  • Lindsey S. on July 22nd, 2009 - 11:08am


    Lad, I am 17 and will be 18 in April. And no matter how old I get, even 90, I will always LOVE Odyssey!!!

  • Lindsey S. on July 22nd, 2009 - 11:22am


    Emily H.,
    I think it would be cool to be the niece of Edwin Blackarrd. Her name would be Genevieve or a name that sounded English, she would be around 14, and she would be the daughter of Edwin and Regis’s little sister Elizabeth that died when she was in her twenties. But Genevieve would be an orphan because her dad died when she was 2 or so. And he thing is, she won’t like William Shakespeare stuff. Instead, she will love Music and want to be a world famous musician. Instead of a famous actress.

  • Lindsey S. on July 22nd, 2009 - 11:25am


    Lad how old are you?

  • sarah on July 22nd, 2009 - 12:13pm


    i thiought that the snow flake incident was kinda lame i had always ivisioned it diffrent’ly

  • clh737 on July 22nd, 2009 - 5:32pm


    Mercy, that would be so cool if you could do that! It would be so fun to see the survey…

  • elise on July 23rd, 2009 - 8:40am


    Mercy, I would be Mandy or the new girl Camilla, ( from another podcast awhile ago).

    I have to say that I did not think that the snowflake explanation was very good.

    I now would like to start a survey asking “what would be your anser for the snowflake incident?”

  • SARAH on July 23rd, 2009 - 1:18pm



  • MIkel on July 23rd, 2009 - 4:48pm


    Who would want to be a voice on Odessey. to fill in or ur own person and what would ur name be and what personality would they have. I now this is A hard question but try ur best!!

  • Original joe on July 23rd, 2009 - 6:45pm


    Mikel, I would want to be a voice. The personality would be a milder version of Eugene.

  • audrey on July 23rd, 2009 - 9:19pm


    i think Odysseyshould bring Mitch back too!

  • Rebecca a. on July 24th, 2009 - 7:29am


    I think Emily H. I’d make somebody named Kayla. She’d be 14, with red hair. She’d also be always pulling pranks on people who think she’s to pretty to be a tomboy.

    There are a lot of survey questions on this page. But I have to say that Mercy you started it and I like yours the best. I agree with everyone – you should put the final results on the website. Email AIO and ask them if you can!

  • Emily H. on July 24th, 2009 - 12:34pm


    Lindsay S.,
    your character sounds awsome!!! I love her name, it sounds so british!!! who knows maybe some day you will work for the AIO people and get to make your character!

  • cassyilita on July 24th, 2009 - 2:45pm


    sarah i totaly agree !

  • Emily H. on July 24th, 2009 - 5:38pm


    Mikel how old r u?

  • Emily H. on July 24th, 2009 - 5:44pm


    Mercy, I would probably be Connie! Im alot like her I love 2 talk all the time and Im constsntly day dreaming! (And I think Mitch is great!:D)

  • Original joe on July 24th, 2009 - 6:55pm


    Hey, everyone, you know how Mercy posted that she was making a survey with your answers to the question “What AIO character would you be?” Since I didn’t have anything better to do, I tallied up the votes! Some voted twice, but I counted both. The winner is: Connie Kendall with 16 and a half votes (one was undecided). The two runner-ups were: Jason and Tamika tied with 8 votes.

  • travis on July 24th, 2009 - 9:30pm


    I LOVE ODESSEY!!!!!!!!!!Hey Mercy i would be Mitch or jason maybe whit for all i know oh yea jared is cool to lol and yes sarah i agree with you please please bring back Mitch he is awesome and now i get to fine out what the snowflakes was about now what bout the hedges into the shapes of barn yard animals????

  • lad on July 25th, 2009 - 7:11am


    Lindsey S.

    I am eleven.

  • JESS on July 25th, 2009 - 7:24am


    I would want to be a person on odyssey, and my person’s nom de plume would be Jazmine because there is already an african-american jessica on the show and I am african-american and my name is jessica. my character would be cheerful and quiet and would like to have adventures. her personality would reflect the more masculine spectre of the female anomolie and would have a large supply of ‘bon homie’ as well as being a christian for sub-apparent reasons and would radiate affection and speak latin.

  • realMarizona on July 25th, 2009 - 8:36am


    That snowflake incident makes no sense
    but it’s still funny… And Mercy, I’d be Jared, Mandy, Connie, or Katrina.

  • realMarizona on July 25th, 2009 - 8:41am


    I think that the real explanation for the snowflake incident should be-
    Ed is cutting out snowflakes and he gets so involved that he starts to cut really, really badly, and when he’s done, he shows it to his family. They all agree that it looks like a piece of paper with a bad haircut…..
    It doesn’t make much sense, though, but neither does the other explanation.
    Yeah, the real explanation is weeeeeird.

  • jeimy on July 25th, 2009 - 10:48am


    hey marcy i really dont kno who i will be i guess tasha or connie they both kinda me i guess. so im kinda like a tomboy and like to argue like connie and like tasha like mystouris things.

  • lulu on July 25th, 2009 - 11:46am


    The Snowflake incident explanation needs to be revised or changed. All the references in the story seem to point to his use of the scissors and not from some long ago incident. Ed must have been cutting snowflakes and they turned out so bad they all fell apart instead of being beautiful snowflakes. Therefore, Elaine would not want Ed to use any scissors on Marvins head. Hence, her saying, “You used the scissors.” I have been a fan for years. Thanks for being on the web.

  • Julianna on July 25th, 2009 - 1:09pm


    Ok,First off I would be Katrina For She Is Awsome And very cool.GO KATRINA!

  • DAVID on July 25th, 2009 - 2:27pm



  • aBBIE on July 25th, 2009 - 2:42pm


    I was just listening to the snowflake incident, and the Sunday morning scramble, and that explanation for the snowflakes doesn’t make sense. Marvin or Tamika said “remember the time we were Making snowflakes. so that explanation is completely strange. Oh and Mikel and Sarah, i have to thing about that.

  • Jay on July 25th, 2009 - 2:54pm


    I would definetly be Jason.

  • Lena on July 25th, 2009 - 2:56pm

  • realMarizona on July 26th, 2009 - 8:56am


    I was listening to Sunday Morning Scramble, and Marvin says to Ed, “Dad, you’re kind of scary with scissors!! Remember that time when we were making the snowflakes and-” And then Tamika says, “You with scissors? Remember the snowflakes?” And Elaine says, “ED!! Don’t you remember the snowflakes?” I am dying to know what the real thing is!! I hope that helps with figuring it out! 😉 🙂

  • realMarizona on July 26th, 2009 - 1:05pm


    You know, my last post may not have been really clear. I meant that Mark Christopher Lawrence’s explanation was not true because Marvin says that they were making they snowflakes and Tamika says that he had the scissors, not his dad…
    They need to re-do their answer!

  • Bob the cow on July 26th, 2009 - 5:43pm


    Mercy I would be Richard Maxwell….. Because he rocks!

  • Bob the cow on July 26th, 2009 - 5:51pm


    I also thing they could have done better explaining the “Snowflake incident.” Because Marvin’s exact quote is, “remember that time we were MAKING snowflakes.” and I don’t recall that the snowflakes were made by the Washingtons. Good try AIO.

  • Allie on July 26th, 2009 - 7:38pm


    where did ya’ll find the episode?!it’s not showing up! I’m very curios about those snow flakes!

  • lu on July 26th, 2009 - 8:35pm


    Emily H.
    I would be Connie’s younger sister, Chloe. She would be pretty, daring, spunky, and think Connie is the coolest big sister.

  • Grace on July 26th, 2009 - 10:33pm


    Um… have to agree the whole snowflake explanation did’nt quite add up…..
    Mercy: I think I identify most w/ Aubrey.

    first MERCY i think id be lucy or Liz.. cuz i also like writing and stuff, or then i like mitch..(but hes a guy) and i agree with u SARAH they should bring Mitch back!!

    i though the SNOWFLAKE incident would be alot more interesting.. that was a bit of a let down…=(

  • Rebekka on July 27th, 2009 - 11:31am


    Oh and katie. u r right! i live in South Africa and im actually from Finland, a small country in europe.. but i think most other people are from the US.

  • LisA on July 27th, 2009 - 3:28pm


    I think Mr. Washington needs a new explanation regarding the snowflake incident…I got that the impression that the family(ie..Marvin, Tameka and Wife) was a witness to the snowflake incident… AND it does not quite make sense for Marvin to be so afraid of his dad handling scissors…Mr. Washington’s explanation does not fit with the family’s response…Maybe it’s just me. Hopefully in another podcast we will get a better explanation.

  • Samone on July 27th, 2009 - 4:09pm


    yeah…didn’t Marvin say “remember the time we were MAKING snowflakes” ????????

  • Samone on July 27th, 2009 - 4:19pm


    and Chloe…I’m 15 and I live in TX. I Go to a fine arts skool.

  • elise on July 28th, 2009 - 6:39am


    Emily H. I would a girl named Becca who is distantly related to Mr.Charles ( from novacom saga). She would be around eleven and she would have a twin brother named Liam. Or, I would be a girl named Shawna ( age 13ish)who lives in a cabin with her older brother and younger sister and parents, near trickle lake. She would be in to nature and drawing.

  • JMD on July 28th, 2009 - 2:10pm


    Mercy, I would be Wooton or Tamika.
    That is no “snowflake incident”!
    I thought it was about “MAKING snowflakes!”
    Nicole, my favorite episoes are Aloha, Oy 1, 2 & 3.

  • katie on July 29th, 2009 - 10:47am


    Connie’s younger sister, Chloe. that would be so cool they could bring her in as one of connie dad’s daughter and connie never knew about her or her dad casue we dont want to make her dad evil casue he already didnt tell her about his wife so he wont know and connie meets her and they both fall in love as sisters and she lives in an orphanage and mitch comes back and there engage again and they decided to get married finally! and adopted her sister chloe. please tell me you comments!:)

  • hope on July 29th, 2009 - 11:30am

    Chels!: I know I’m not Noah, but I want to answer you question anyway… Mr. Barclay’s full name is George Rand McNally Barclay. By the way, I would never name my kid that!


    Oh, and I think that Mark Christopher Lawrence made the “Snowflake Incident” explanation on the spot so that would explain why it didn’t make any sence. Oh well!!!

  • Sarah on July 30th, 2009 - 7:17am

  • LIL BIT on August 1st, 2009 - 10:12pm


    i would be connie…..lol i just about EVERYONE loves her!!!!!!!

  • rebeckah on August 2nd, 2009 - 9:26am


    I was very disappointed with the snowflake explanation because I knew it had to do with paper snowflakes. I think they make the explanation something like: Tamika and Marvin were making paper snowflakes for some school assignment, and Ed (being typical helper and lover of kid stuff) decides to help them. Unfortunately, he cannot handle scissors very well. They just don’t seem to cut where he wants them to cut. He figures he can fix the snowflakes by “cutting a little more here, and some there.”

  • rebeckah on August 2nd, 2009 - 9:29am


    In the process, Ed succeeds only in “killing” the snowflakes and turning them into scraps of paper. Marvin and Tamika decide to do their project without him. Since Ed lacks the ability to cut with scissors, as shown by the snowflake incident, the rest of the Washington family bans him from using scissors. In Marvin’s case with his hair, he was afraid that his hair would end up mutilated just like the snowflakes. What do you think about that explanation?

  • rebeckah on August 2nd, 2009 - 9:37am


    Mercy: I would be either Wooten (because I am sometimes like a grown up kid), Connie (because I am occasionally outspoken, I am stubborn, and I am usually the last to know things), or Eugene (I like using big words just for the fun of it).

    Emily H.: I would make a permanent homeschooled family because I was homeschooled all the way through. I would base the family off of my own. There would be three boys and one girl. They would show the public schoolers that homeschoolers are cool too.

  • Kate on August 2nd, 2009 - 5:44pm


    the “Snowflake Incident” does not sound right. Why wouldn’t they want Ed to cut Marvin’s hair, it was Ed’s Dad who was cutting Ed’s hair. Ed wasn’t cutting hair?!?

  • reeza anne on August 2nd, 2009 - 7:02pm


    Mark Lawrence looks like an Ed.
    I’d have to be Tamika

  • reeza anne on August 2nd, 2009 - 7:04pm


    HEY Is quanimra really ur name?what duz it mean?

  • RAScal on August 2nd, 2009 - 9:31pm


    The snowflake incident explanation was a BIG let down. Marvin even said remember the time we were making snowflakes. Plural not singular.Plus, why wouldn’t they trust Ed with sissors if it was Ed’s dad who did the bad haircut. Plus, Marvin says, “You with sissors. You’re scaring me here.” I LOVE AIO!!!I can’t wait for each episode. I’d probably be Mandy or Sarah. I don’t know which

  • Nicole on August 3rd, 2009 - 12:23am


    I LOVE your idea Katie!!!

My FAVORITE AIO characters are definitly Wooton, and I like Mandy and Liz too, but I also like Katrina. But I was expecting something different when I heard about the ‘snowfalke incedent’. I didn’t think it really made sense with the episode. but I still LOVE Adventures in Odyssey! IT IS SO AWESOME.

She has imaginary friends, she gets to ride the ponies at Tom Ryley’s place, she gets to play Scrabble with an awesome sister and she gets to just be a little girl. Also, I would want to be Seth because that’s my brother’s name. And finally, I want to be Samantha because Grady is really awesome. I LOVE AIO!!! BEST EVER!

I’m sure you all have had a day like that when you can’t go outside, your friends aren’t home, you’ve read every book in the house, listened to all your music and odysseys too many times, and you can’t go on the computer for as long as you want to. g2g but blog me back, everyone!

  • andrea G. on December 21st, 2009 - 4:09am


    As for who I’d be in the series? Hm.
    If I could be anyone, I’d be Katrina.
    If my character was based on me, I’d be part Eugene (“geeky”, constant grammar cop, sometimes impatient with those who seem indifferent to the things I deem important), part Connie (I LOVE kids of all ages, sometimes speak my mind before I realize what I’m saying, not into gadgets), and part Katrina (annoyed when someone tries to impress me too much, try to be patient with people *(side note: not always successful)*).

  • andrea G. on December 21st, 2009 - 4:14am


    And that explanation of the snowflake incident doesn’t match up with the story.

  • Yelsew on April 16th, 2013 - 8:19am


    Yes Sing, I was in a car accident. Everyone is ok tho, and the worst thing that happened was our van was totaled. We still have not heard back from the people that were in the other car. So we don’t know what’s going to happen with that yet. If you have any Qs feel free to ask. And just so you know, I’m on Whit’s End a lot. I just don’t comment much cause I don’t have much to say. But it i dare my name I’ll answer when I see it. 😉
