    • Rachel: (after crashing Carl's car) I couldn't avoid it, it came up out of nowhere!
      Harriette: Rachel! You hit a tree! It came up out of nowhere a hundred years ago!

    • Laura: That was a great meal, Mom. Judy: Got to go! Harriette: Hold on for a minute! Your father and I have to go to the P.T.A. meeting. I've got to leave now, you kids do the dishes. Eddie: Well, she can't be referring to me, 'cause... I ain't no kid! Harriette: I was referring to all of you! Laura: I'll wash up the dishes. Judy: I'll dry them. (Eddie carries a few plates on his arm and drops them on the ground) Eddie: And I'll mop the floor.

    • (trying to distract Carl from seeing his damaged car) Laura: Dad, wait! My tonsils hurt. Judy: Mine, too! Carl: Judy, you got your tonsils out four years ago. Judy: Oh, I mean my feet.

    • The German episode title is "Prachtstück mit Beule", meaning "Beauty with a Dent".

    Trivia (1)

    • The original cold open to this episode featured Harriette telling Eddie, Laura and Judy to wash the dishes while she gets ready to go to a PTA meeting. After the original airing of this episode the producers replaced it with a new cold open to feature Harriette and Carl sitting at the table and Steve Urkel comes with a robe on saying he was taking a bath, to make it look as if Urkel was on from the beginning. The first season DVD set uses the original version.
