    • Fran: Earl, our daughter is turning into a social-climbing snob. Earl: They grow up oh so fast.

    • Fran: Earl, did you hear that? Charlene's coat just said we're bad parents. Earl: Charlene who?

    • Earl: Let me tell you something little girl. You don't need fancy clothes. Charlene: Oh, please. Earl: Look at me. All I have is this one shirt, and I command respect wherever I go. (Ethyl runs into Earl with her wheelchair) Earl: Ow! Ethyl: Out of my way, you worthless sack of fat.

    • Fran: Girls, I know you're disappointed, but I think you'll find stuffing yourselves won't make you feel any better. Charlene: So you're saying we need TV too?

    • (Ethel gives Charlene the $500 she needs to buy a coat) Charlene: Oh Grandma! Do you mean it? Ethel: I was saving it for your college education, but a voice inside my head said 'the only way she's going to college is inside a cake at a frathouse party'.

    • This episode mainly dealt with teen peer pressure to become popular by buying expensive clothing just to be noticed, something that still goes on to this day.
