    • Holly: (To Kyle) I just wonder what I'm going to tell my daughter when she's in high school and she asks me, Mommy, what was your prom like? I guess I'll just say, well sweetie, I went with this very cute boy who was a wonderful dancer... and then we went to a party at your Aunt Marcy's house and later that night I walked into her bedroom and there he was... with this other boy from our Spanish class doing all the things I was finally prepared to do with him! (pretends to strangle him)

    • Lina: (To Joanne) Oh, uh, I-I-I'm sorry... but everything you just said sounded really, really nice. I mean, seriously, if I had someone doing amazing, extravagant things for me everyday I think I'd just shut up! I mean, you call these problems?! (mockingly) Oh, it's horrible, someone wrote in the sky for me... I'd kill to find a little note in my diaphragm case! Oh... but that's just me.

    • Lina: Kat was expelled for telling Mr. Dubban he looked like a penis. Richie: He did; he kinda looked like a penis. Lina: Yeah... and the turtlenecks didn't help.

    • Nicole: So, where're you living now? Duncan: I'm still in Narberth. Nicole: Oh? Where? Duncan: Oh, uh, Montgomery Street. Nicole: Doesn't your mom live... oh... Duncan: Yeah.

    • Ethan: (about Joanne) When we met it was like fate brought us together. Now what's it doing? Kat: I'm not really a big believer in fate. Ethan: Yeah well, I hate fate! Kat: Let's not make it mad though!

    • In the original pilot, the part of Yonk Allen was played by Eric Allen Kramer. However, the writers wanted the character to have more lines, so they hired David Keith to take over the role, and they made him a regular. In a few scenes you can see Kramer walking around, but he remains uncredited for his appereance.
