    • Wanda: How come [Karen] gets a CD and I don't? I like music. Davis: You want me to make you a CD? (leaning forward) Are you ready for it? (leaning even further forward) Are you ready for a 'Davis Disc'? Wanda: I'm ready for you to back up a bit. Davis: And so it begins.

    • Lacey: Whoa, somebody wimped out on the pact! Hank: No, no, no, I painted my face green, see? Lacey: Yes. You did. And so did I, because we are real fans. Unlike Brent. Brent: I'm a fan! Look, that spearmint gum, green. These chips I'm eating got flecks of green stuff all over them. The washer fluid ... all right, that's blue, but if I put some lemon juice in there, green. Lacey: You use that lame excuse on St. Patrick's day too.

    • Karen: Mrs. Carmichael? It's Officer Karen Pelly. Mrs. Carmichael: I didn't know the watch was his... I can't see well. Karen: No, I'm here to read to you.

    • Emma: I brought you some leftovers from the Seniors' Home. Oscar: That place gives me the creeps. Bunch of old people sitting around, not doing anything, watching TV.

    • Davis: So how'd you like the CD? Wanda: Fantastic, blew my mind, no need to make another! Davis: Which was your favourite song? Wanda: Um... song two. I liked how it came right after the first one there, like, right after, and sort of slid into song three. Did not see that coming!

    • Oscar: You're wasting your time. The Riders haven't been any good since the old days. Joe '747' Adams, 'Polecat' Poley, ...Molly McGee. She was as tough as nails. Hank: Molly McGee was a guy. Oscar: I don't think so! First woman to play in the CFL. Look it up! Brent: What, dementia? Oscar: Joe Dementia played baseball, you jackass! Molly McGee, was, in fact, a man. He played for both the Saskatchewan Roughriders and the Ottawa Rough Riders, and was a player for Saskatchewan when it was involved in the 1976 Grey Cup. Joe '747' Adams played in the early '80s. Bob 'Polecat' Poley played for the Roughriders from 1978 - 1984.

    • Lacey: So how's it goin' on the ol' griddle? Brent: Gridiron. Lacey: Right. Brent: Well, you'll be happy to know the Argos are winning. Lacey:Oh, I'm cheering for the Riders. Been a fan of theirs ever since they moved the team from Ottawa. Brent comments that Lacey will be happy that the Argos are winning; Lacey is from Toronto, home of the Toronto Argonauts. Lacey comments that she's been a fan since the team moved from Ottawa; the Saskatchewan Roughriders were never based in Ottawa. They began as the Regina Rugby Club in 1910, and in 1924 changed their name to the Roughriders. Ottawa had a team called the Rough Riders, which folded in 1996, but the two teams were always separate.

    • Oscar: You know who I always think is dead is that guy that played Fish on Barney Miller... what was his name? Emma: He is dead. Oscar: Get the hell out of here! Karen: No, he's not dead! The actor Oscar is talking about is Abe Vigoda, who, at the time of the airing of this episode, is alive.
