    • Delia: My hero was born on April 29, 1958, in Wilton, Connecticut. She wore pearl earrings almost every day and wouldn't take them off, even in the shower. She was tall and beautiful and funny and her name was Julia Brown. A year and a half ago, she died, but before that happened, she did a lot of amazing things. I'd like to tell you about some of them today.

    • Narrator Irv: They say that from the instant he lays eyes on her, a father adores his daughter. Whomever she grows up to be, she is always to him that little girl in pigtails. She makes him feel like Christmas. In exchange, he makes a secret promise not to see the awkwardness of her teenage years, the mistakes she makes, or the secrets she keeps.

    • Andy: We love vegetarian, don't we Ephram? Ephram: Well, I like carrots.

    • Andy: I should give that girl a raise. Ephram: Yeah, just don't give her a key.

    • Linda: Then by all means explain the connection between Mother Teresa and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Andy: Daughter. Homework. Hero. Linda: Gotcha.

    Trivia (4)

    • It was the WB's original intention to air this episode without bleeping the word sh*t. However, that decision was changed right before the episode aired.

    • In the scene where Delia and Madison discuss who to chose as Delia's hero, we see the book Delia is reading for Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This book however wouldn't help her very much since it is a scriptbook for the musical episode Once more, with Feeling.

    • Hey, it was a dream! Bright was competing in the swim meet too, even though males and females usually don't compete against each other.

    • In Amy's dream, if it was a real swim meet, they would be wearing swim caps, or at least have their hair tied back.
