    • Carl: I'll race you to the counter. (shuffles his feet across the floor to the counter) Harriette: You win. Carl: Ha, ha, (gasps and wheezes, falls on the counter and falls off it) Who put that there?

    • Laura: Get out, now. Steve: Here's a thought. Why don't I just leave?

    • Laura: I'm young again! And my butt's back! Steve: Where was it?

    • Laura: Mom, Dad! How did you get so old? Carl: Easy. We didn't die.

    • Steve: Laura's got the highly infectious mucus-nasal-osis-inflamicus. Daniel: Oh, my God! What is that? Steve: Well, it starts out with a little cough. (Coughs) Then your nasal passages swell and your nose and throat slam shut tighter than a clam. Daniel: Whoa, man. Steve: Yeah, and then if you sneeze… why, your entire head explodes like a cherry bomb in a cantaloupe. Daniel: Hey, man. Hey, wait a minute. Hey, you could be making this whole thing up! Steve: Could. But, if I'm not, the last two words you'll ever say will be, 'Ah Choo'.

    Notes (1)

    • This is her first of Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon's four appearances on the show. In later episodes she also played one of Eddie's love interests, a young version of Mother Winslow, and a famous actress.

    Trivia (1)

    • When Laura has her dream, it's established that it's 75 years later when she's 90 and Carl and Harriette are 110. That means in reality Laura is 15, and Carl and Harriette are 35. How could that be when in the episode "Words Hurt," which aired before this episode, it was revealed that Carl's age was 38, not 35.
