    • Norm: (pulling Cliff away from his potato's presidential podium) I want you to look what you've done, and think about this: you've knocked the head off a DOLL, and put a POTATO in its place. And you actually want people to, like, COME and KNOW this...
      Cliff: Well, yeah I think...guess you're right, Normie...been taking it a little TOO seriously...I, uh, I've been some strain lately, and... (Norm gives some reassuring words)
      Cliff: Thanks, you know, just THANKS for pulling in those reins and saying, "WHOA Paint, yer workin' up a FROTH!"

    • Anthony: Forget him, my father's a bum. Carla: Hey don't you talk about your father that way. Anthony: Okay he's a sleazy bum. Carla: That's better.

    • Carla: No, you're only 16. Anthony: You were pregnant when you were 16. Carla: Yeah, but I wasn't stupid enough to be married.

    • Sam: Listen Anthony, I know you like Annie a lot. Anthony: No, no I love her. Sam: Anthony, there's only two times a man uses that word; tennis and when he's already paid for the room, you know what I mean.

    • Carla: (to Sam) You know Nick's idea of fatherhood-when the egg splits so does he.

    Notes (2)

    • The first appearance of Annie Tortelli, played by Mandy Ingber, who would reprise the role on the short-lived spinoff The Tortellis.

    • The first appearance of Anthony Tortelli, played by Timothy Williams. He even carried the role on to the short-lived spinoff The Tortellis. He does a good job of being believably Nick's son, complete with the same verbal cadences.
