    • Charlene: (the Baby's crying) It's four in the morning, doesn't he ever shut up? Baby: I want a pony! No, I want to go to the beach! Fran: A whole year, a whole year of this. Earl: I can't take it, I'm not going to make it to his third birthday. Baby: Give me a cookie! Wanna play horsey! I want a drink of WAAATER! Earl: He's not going to make it to his third birthday.

    • Fran: I keep getting angry when I know what the baby needs is love and compassion. Doctor: And where is he now? Fran: Inside this box...well we had to, he chewed through the straps on his car seat. Doctor: Very resourceful...may I see the child? Fran and Earl: Uh.......sure, you're the doctor, I guess.... (Fran and Earl open the box) Doctor: Well hello little fellow, look at me and say 'ah'. Baby: Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Doctor: Close the box! Close the box! Close the box! (Fran and Earl close the box) Doctor: Terrible Twos? Fran: We think so. Doctor: Oh, I've seen this a hundred times before. A child of two is looking for his parents to give him some concrete boundaries. So I suggest you wall him up inside a cave for a year. Take this to the hardware store, they'll give you some cement and a trowel. Earl: Doc, can I get a refill for this if he claws his way out?

    • Fran: It's not right, Earl. Bribing a child to behave. Earl: And if it works? Fran: It's a shortsighted, stopgap, quick-fix solution. Earl: You don't have to sell me on it.

    • Fran: I keep getting angry when I know what the baby needs is love and compassion. Doctor: And where is he now? Fran: Inside this box...well we had to, he chewed through the safety strap on his car seat. Doctor: Very resourceful...may I see the child? Fran and Earl: Uh.......sure, you're the doctor, I guess.... (Fran and Earl open the box) Doctor: Well hello little fellow, I want you to open your mouth and say ah. Baby: Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Doctor: Close the box! Close the box! (Fran and Earl close the box) Doctor: Terrible Twos? Fran: We think so. Doctor: I've seen this a hundred times...so I suggest walling him up inside a cave for a year. Take this estimate, they'll give you a cement mixer and a trowel. Earl: Doc, can I get a refund if he claws his way out?

    • Ethyl: This is a dark, terrible day... Earl: And we were going to ask you to jump out of the cake.

    Allusions (2)

    • Green Eggs and Ham: When the Babysitter reads a book to the demonic Baby called Blue Eggs and Toast, this title is a spoof on this very popular and recognizable book written in 1960 by Dr. Seuss.

    • The Exorcist: The spinning head, the babysitter jumping out of the window, the baby's overall evil transformation; ring any bells? This episode spoofs the 70's horror movie, The Exorcist. The classic line from that movie, "the power of Christ compels you," also shows ties to a line in this episode: "the power of rice compels you."
