Big Time Rush Wiki

"Welcome Back Big Time" is the first episode of the second season of Big Time Rush and the nineteenth episode overall. It first aired on September 25, 2010.


The boys return from their worldwide tour and things at the Palm Woods have changed. They learn there are new people at the Palm Woods and James and Carlos try to get their "pool rep" back. Miss Collins tells them they need 6 weeks of homework and projects done in 1 day or they cannot perform at Rocktober fest (who Griffin tells them later in the episode about). Meanwhile, Kendall gets nervous about losing Jo because she starts flirting with a new guy. He then finds out that they're practicing for a movie which Jo stars in. Katie tells him that Jo has a 5-page kiss with her co-star (who is more handsome than Kendall via Mr Bitters) and Kendall does anything to stop it on the set. Kendall apologizes and they make up but Jo gets a message saying 'I feel the same way about you" from the co-star. Jo then explains to him what it meant. She meant that she called him a good actor and he "felt the same way about her". Because of Kendall's attitude, Jo says that he should forget about her. James, Kendall and Carlos are sad that they can't get over the new adjustments in the Palm Woods. When they go to the apartment, Logan is tired of doing all the work and has the three add the finishing touches to their projects. Later, the boys get C+ grades on all of their projects, except Carlos, who instead got a B, and get to finally perform at Rocktoberfest. The new people learn about their performance and they start to like BTR. Later, Kendall calls Jo and says he can't forget her and leaves her a ticket for Rocktoberfest. Kendall asks Gustavo if they can perform Til' I Forget About You instead. Despite Kelly telling the boys they didn't rehearse the song enough, the boys tell them that Kendall can handle it and Gustavo accepts the choice. Jo doesn't show at first but later comes during their performance of "(Til I) Forget About You" and she holds up a sign that says "I ♥ Kendall".


Jo: Do you want to come, to make sure that nothing's going on?
Kendall: No. I trust you. (she walks away) ...I trust her...right?
Mr. Bitters: I wouldn't, 'cause that guy is way better looking than you.

Kelly: Whoa, whoa. Nobody informed me of this.
Ms. Collins: Yes, I did. (intense music plays) I sent all the information, e-mailed all the assignments, and was told everything was being taken care of.
Kelly: Really. By who? (scene cuts to the studio where she is looking at Gustavo) Are you nuts?!?!
Gustavo: I didn't tell the boys about school because I needed them to focus on the tour. And I didn't tell you because you would just yell at me. Like you did just there!

Gustavo: 900 years ago, the pilgrims came to this great land of ours in search of freedom. The rock!
Logan: The pilgrims came seeking religious freedom.
Gustavo: THESE ARE DIFFERENT PILGRIMS! And today, we celebrate the bravery of those head-banging pioneers for one month! Rocktober. Now...are you gonna sit there and GIVE UP? Or are you gonna grab a number two pencil, strap on your thinking cap, and save Rocktober?!
Logan: (stands up as superhero music plays) I'll need report covers, a glue stick, a protractor, green glitter number three, and 19 high energy sports drinks.
Gustavo and Kelly: Yes!
