    • Kat: Ohhh to bad, I think I saw a glare from your Devil horns, Beelzebub. Beelzebub is a name of demon derived from the Philistine god Ba'al ZebĂ»b. In literature, it is often depicted as a fallen angel, a high-ranking demon, or Satan himself.

    • Kat: High school is like Vietnam and these stupid flowers are Agent Orange. Agent Orange is the code name of the herbicide sprayed over South Vietnam by the US military during the Vietnam War which resulted in hundreds of thousands of casualties.

    • Kat: I'm not skipping home to scribble in my journal that maybe you're a vampire. This is a reference to Twilight, where mysterious Edward catches the eye of Bella, who later finds out that he is a vampire.
