  • Quotes (23)

    • Nicole: Yeah. You're right, he's Yonk Allen. I know how much it meant the first time he took me to a game. I just hope you don't thank him the same way I did! Duncan: I guess that depends on how good the seats are. Nicole: They're pretty good. Duncan: Uh-oh.

    • Nicole: You know, I actually thought you might care enough not to come tonight. Duncan: Look, I'm sorry. I know this has gotta suck for you and I would feel really bad except I'm going to the Eagles game with Yonk Allen! Nicole: And his wife! (she closes the door behind her) Am I alone in this? Isn't this gonna to be hard for you to be with me and him? Duncan: You know, it would be, except I'm going to the Eagles game with Yonk-- Nicole and Duncan: (simultaneously) Allen...

    • Kyle: I made the whole black thing up. Aaron: No way. Kyle: Pembridge doesn't have a diversity policy! Aaron: (as he gets up from the couch) So, you lied? Kyle: Yeah... and I pulled her application. Aaron: Oh, my God! I've never loved you more! (he grabs Kyle and hugs him)

    • Kyle: (Talking about Oprah's admission to Pembridge) Okay, uh, apparently, when they met her, they couldn't help noticing that she's not black.

    • Ethan: Then why did you set me up with her? Kat: Because I was hoping that maybe you were a better person than I am. Ethan: Well, I'm not. Kat: See? This is why I don't set people up. Because now I have to call her and I have to make up an excuse, and it's like this whole giant mess. Ethan: I'm sorry. So, you got anyone else? Someone smaller here (he motions to his ears) bigger here (he motions his chest)... I'm just saying.

    Notes (3)

    • Sara Gilbert is the only actress to receive the "And" credit during the show's entire run.

    • The show moved to a new timeslot, 8:30 PM. The show switched places with "How I Met Your Mother." The move helped to slightly improve ratings.
      Originally, CBS intended to air "The Class" at 8:30 PM, but they switched timeslots before the fall season began.

    • Original International Airdates: Canada: October 09, 2006 on CTV

    Allusions (3)

    • Richie: It's like Silkwood. The movie Richie mentioned is a biography drama movie from 1983 starring Meryl Streep, Kurt Russell and Cher.

    • Kyle: Even Oprah couldn't get Oprah into that school. Holly: Well, that's not true. Kyle: I know, she can do anything. Yet another allusion to the famous talk show host Oprah Winfrey, one of the most richest women ever.

    • Andrea Anders (Nicole) and Ben Falcone who guest stars in this episode as Busboy, both starred in NBC's short-living sitcom "Joey." Falcone played a recurring character Howard; Anders was a regular. But they didn't appear in the same scene together in this episode.
