Josephine: Hell no! Dr. Cox: Thank you, whomever. Now if you'll excuse me I have to get far far away from annoying people. Hee-specially whiny shallow blondes with stained coffee teeth. Urhgh. (Dr. Cox leaves) Carla: Oh, look at that. He got you anyway.

And we'll like you to stay on. Dr. Kelso: Girls, thank you for saving my job. The one thing I wanted was to end things in my own terms. But since you are letting me... you can shove it up your ass, Rodney! I'm outta here.

    • Janitor: Ok, I'll support Kelso. But in return, I want you to put me on a bag full of gas and take me to the airport. I'll explain later. Carla: Why would we do that? Janitor: Because I'm the bigger mover, slash shaker in this dump. Pfft... you know.

    • Jordan: Why would anyone wanna save Kelso's job? Carla: For starters- Jordan: You know what? I don't honestly care about one way or the other. Hhm. Carla: About Kelso? Jordan: Oh, about anything. But then again, you two are young enough and attractive enough that I'm not angry to be seen with you and people assume we are friends. So what the hell!
