  • Quotes (19)

    • Ruthie: The twins are lucky you're their daddy, and I'm lucky you're my daddy, too. I love you! Eric: And I think you should get the walkie-talkies you want. Ruthie: You're the best dad ever! Eric: I also think you're old enough to earn the money yourself. Ruthie: I hope you're not suggesting that allowance thing that the other kids do. Eric: Well, you can take the trash out for three dollars a week. If you really want those walkie-talkies, that's the deal. Take it or leave it. Ruthie: I'll leave it. There are easier ways to make money than by working. (leaves) Eric: (to the twins) Don't be in a hurry to start talking, okay?

    • Ruthie: Mom, can I have $29.99? I just have to have these walkie talkies I saw on TV! Then I can call all my friends, and they can call me back, and it only costs $29.99! Annie: But if you use the phone to call your friends and pretend the phone is a walkie-talkie, it'll cost less. Ruthie: (rolls her eyes) Parents!

    • Mrs. Peterson: (to her son) I should have kicked you out. I should have told you that if you did drugs, you couldn't live with me, but I thought turning my back on my son made me a bad mother. But I was wrong. It made me a bad grandmother. Look, if you won't straighten up for me, do it for Lee. He's your son! You need to act like his father, and if you don't make me a promise, right that you will take the steps to clean up your life, then I will take custody of Lee, and you'll never see us again. And I don't want to do that. I just can't sit by and watch my grandson turn to drugs, the way my son did. Eric: Admitting you have a problem is the first step. I think it's the hardest step, too. Mrs. Peterson: I'll be there for you every step of the way, and as long as you're clean and sober, you can live with me. But you've got to get a job. You've got to start contributing to the household. Jeff: I just...I don't know if I can do it. Lee: Dad, please. I already lost a mom. I don't want to lose you, too. I love you.

    • Simon: (to Lee) Tell them what your dad does. (turns to Eric and Annie) His dad's a private investigator who works with the local police and the FBI. The FBI! That is so cool! (the kids leave) Annie: I think being a minister is a lot cooler than working with the FBI. Eric: That's why I think you're the bomb, baby. (they kiss)

    • Lucy: You have to help me. I don't want to work in the attendance office tomorrow! Annie: Well, maybe you shouldn't have volunteered. Lucy: But at the time I volunteered, I didn't realize I'd have to give up my study hall. I thought it was before school or something. I need my study hall! Eric: To study? Lucy: Yeah, sure. Plus, it's the only time I have before lunch to catch up with my friends and re-touch my makeup. (long pause, Eric and Annie are baffled) So you're not going to help me?!?!

    Notes (4)

    • This episode has a book based on it. The book is The Perfect Plan by James Johnson.

    • Alicia Leigh Willis' real life parents play her parents in this episode.

    • In Germany this episode is known as "Lies Have Short Legs," translated.

    • Even though he is credited, John Hamilton (Chaz Lamar Sherherd) does not appear in this episode.

    Trivia (2)

    • Notice the scene where Lee accidentally drops his backpack in the Camdens' kitchen, and a bag of marijuana falls out. You can tell that the actor playing Lee drops the backpack on purpose. He just kind of lingers for a second and lets it slide down his arm before letting it fall to the ground. The camera has a full, close-up shot of Lee the whole time, so it's very obvious.

    • Corey Conway mentions in this episode that she was never able to have friends come over to her house because she was hiding the fact that she had a daughter but in the previous season, "Let's Talk About Sex" the Mary goes to a co-ed sleepover at Cory's house. Also, Corey was portrayed as being older when Mary made varsity in her freshman year because Corey was on the team and pressured Mary into stealing something from the Varsity restaurant.

    Allusions (2)

    • Simon: The police, NASA, the FBI. Your dad's the coolest. Simon is talking to his friend Lee of how he is so impressed with what his father SUPPOSEDLY does for a living. All of these three US Government departments do exist in protecting our society.

    • Simon: Careful, Pinocchio. Your nose is growing. Simon is talking to Ruthie of how she promises to pay him back if he loans her some money, but Simon knows that she's lying and refers her to Pinocchio. Pinocchio is the classic children's character whose nose would grow longer whenever he told a lie.
