    • Vikings Coach: Furthermore, my boys could kick your boys' butts in an ice skating rink wearing nothing but socks if they had to. (Coach Taylor slowly starts to smile) So let me tell ya, if you want to go ahead and play on, on, on this field - Butch up, Sally, 'cause you got a game.

    • Coach Taylor: You look out here lately, looks like we’re playing the damn Super Bowl. Coach Mac: Well, they're excited about it. Coach Taylor: Well, I’m glad their excited, I wish they were excited about winning as they are about making a buck.

    • Landry: Good Morning Tyra, How are you doing? Tyra: (pause)Yeah, I’m gonna go. I’ll call you later (talking to Julie)

    • Landry: Tyra is that you, what are you doing here? Tyra: Nothing just wishing I could build a time machine and go back and shoot who ever it is that invented Algebra, that’s for sure. Landry: Well, see that’s kind of a Catch-22, though because in order to invent that time machine you may need to use Algebra.

    • Lyla: Great, you better be careful she’s a good shot. Smash: What’s that supposed to mean? Lyla: We went shooting yesterday, two girls packing heat. Smash: No, no, no…that’s not a good idea. Lyla: What, why, God Smash you’re not her father. Smash: Lyla, it’s not about that, she’s bi-polar. Lyla: What? Smash: Waverly’s bi-polar and she’s not taking her meds, which means, I don’t know what that means but I’m damn sure she shouldn’t be shooting guns. Lyla: I didn’t know. Smash: Now you do.

    Trivia (3)

    • When Matt opens his locker he finds an envelope with money in it, we see the money very briefly. Next to the fact that it is white (not green), you can read the words '... use only' on the bill, probably from a sentence explaining the money is a prop.

    • The stadium the coaches looked at for the site of the game was really the new Round Rock ISD stadium (The "Palace on Parmer") in Round Rock, TX. The stadium is the home for Round Rock McNeil and Round Rock Westwood. The stadium is a popular Texas playoff site and hosted the biggest game in Texas in 2005, the 5A Division 1 State Championship between Euless Trinity and Converse Judson (28-14 Trinity).

    • The team Dillon played in this episode is the Bryan Vikings from Bryan, TX in real life. Bryan is in district 13-5A (Pflugerville is in district 14-5A). The game was the state semifinal game. In real life, teams from these two districts could only meet in the first round or the region championship.
