  • Quotes (2)

    • (Greg comes homes with a bruise on his arm) Carol: Oh, Greg! Greg: Mom, it's just a bruise. Carol: That is the biggest bruise I have ever seen in my entire life! See, this is exactly why I was so worried about you playing football! Greg: Mom, that's not from practice. I bumped my arm in math class. (cue laugh track) Carol: Oh, well... Greg: I'd be happy to quit math if you think it's too dangerous.

    • (Greg and the coach in the locker room) Greg: Coach, the ribs are nothing, it's telling my mother that's gonna be painful!

    Notes (3)

    • If you would take notice at the guy that's playing Greg's coach, he also played the coach for Peter's football team in season 2's The Drummer Boy.

    • Ironically, Greg would rejoin the football team the next season and wound up leading Westdale High to the City Championship in the episode "Quarterback Sneak" in the final season.

    • This stock footage of the football game was the same big game that Westdale beat Fairview at in "Quarterback Sneak"

    Trivia (2)

    • Carol is upset about Greg making the football team, fearing he'll get hurt.  She even says no son of hers is going to play that game.  However, Peter was on a football team in the season 2 episode, "The Drummer Boy".

    • The origin of Alice's cake recipe she writes on the blackboard - which accidentally gets erased - seems to change! When she was trying to figure the ingredients out with the girls she said it was "the best cake I ever created". But when Peter erased it she commented about it being a "recipe that's been handed down from generation to generation...ending with this one!"
