    • Sage : (upon meeting Megan) I know who you are... And PS I *puke* cuter than that outfit you're wearing.

    • Charlie: Yeah my job comes with a hair net, I don't judge.

    • (talking to Sage) Megan: With great power, comes great responsibility. Shout out to Uncle Ben. (later, about to leave the room) Megan: Uncle Ben is Spiderman's uncle, not mine. I just want to make that clear.

    • Little Kid: (to Megan) Hey lady, I can see your vajayjay.

    • Megan: Aren't you coming with me? Marco: Oh yes, I just love unnecessary encounters with law enforcement officers. You're on your own sledge sister.

    • Sage: You think you can lecture me on being a good sister? I'd jump in front of a bus to save Rose from being hurt. You'd throw Lily under a bus for fun.

    • Charlie: Everything will be okay. Rose: How do you know? Charlie: I don't. Giving high school girls advice is not my forte. I rock at bowling though. I don't even need the bumper things.

    • Megan: What happened? Sage: OK. I was pulling out of the spot... Police officer: (Interrupting Sage.) Without a license. Sage: Oh my God, can we get past the license thing already? Police officer: Certainly miss, why don't we move on to the bribery part of the story?

    Trivia (3)

    • Goof: When Megan sits in the booth to help Charlie fill salt & pepper shakers, she lays her purse on the inside (her left). When the shot widens, the purse is seen on the outside (Megan's right).

    • Goof: Megan declares "DEFCON 5" in her phone call with Lily regarding their mother. DEFCON 5 is actually the lowest level of alertness, and is used during peacetime. What she meant to say here was "DEFCON 1," the highest level of alertness.

    • Near the start of the episode, Marco is watching an episode of Friends. Christina Pickles (Judy Geller from friends) is a guest star in the show. Surely this does not make sense.

    Allusions (16)

    • Megan said "With great power, comes great responsibility. Shout out to Uncle Ben". Uncle Ben is a character from the "Spider-Man" comics, who's best known for teaching that phrase to his nephew Peter Parker.

    • Megan: You say the word 'plan', then Laverne & Shirley show up, there's a merry mix up, and nobody wins.

      Laverne & Shirley was a half hour sitcom that ran on ABC from 1976 to 1983 and centered on the lives of Laverne De Fazio and Shirley Feeney, characters that originally appeared on Happy Days before being spun off onto their own show.

    • Marco: Why you rejected bachelor number one and bachelor number two? Megan: Okay, Marco. Can we speed this up to get to the point where I understand what you're talking about? Marco: Well, there's a man at the front door, carries a surfboard as an accessory, has a smile that could light up my christmass tree through February- Megan: (smiling happily) Charlie is here! Marco: Ah, Charles. Bachelor number three. A fine specimen. Marco was alluding the reality show The Bachelorette, where a woman must choose between a bunch of bachelors.

    • When Megan wished the girls would respect her more as a tutor, she mentions how Jack Black is so lucky. Jack Black is a famous actor and musician. Megan was probably referring to his movie School Of Rock, where he plays a a guy who teaches rock music to kids.

    • Marco called Megan "Sub-Zero". He was a character from the Mortal Kombat franchise. He was a ninja with the power of freezing things. Marco was referring to the fact that Megan has become an "ice queen" for not wanting to date.

    • Rose: "Sex And The City"? I loved that movie! Sex And The City was actually a television series turned into a movie.

    • Megan: The Oracle? The creepy old lady from "The Matrix"? The Oracle was a character from the The Matrix trilogy.

    • Marco: Sally, go mount your Harry. Marco is making a reference to the 1989 blockbuster hit When Harry Met Sally, a film about two people who finally become a couple after years of friendship.
