    • (Summer is talking to a college adviser and finds out that Seth missed his meeting with a Brown representative) Adviser: Seth Cohen? Summer: Yea, you know, gangly, mop-head, barely has an ass. Adviser: Right, unfortunately Seth missed his interview. Summer: What? Adviser: He was a no-show. He was just in here explaining the situation... something about a trailer-tractor accident? Summer: Oh my God, that little bitch.

    • Seth: This is pretty amazing, too. Summer: It's just a blue screen, Cohen. Seth: I know, but it's so blue. I never realized how blue it was before. I kind of, like, want to go swimming in it or something.

    • Julie: Go away Gus. I told you, I don't want to play strip pinochle. Neil: You play strip pinochle? Julie: Long story.

    • Summer: Cohen, you are in a deceit spiral. And if you don't stop now, you could turn in to one of those creepy old men who has secret attics where they hide stolen money and porn. Seth: Okay, first of all? That sounds awesome. Second of all, it could be worse. I got scared. Summer: Scared? Seth: Yeah. Tongue-tied, dizzy, my bladder felt weak.

    • Julie: It's my own fault. I let you do the scheming. Clearly not your wheelhouse. From now on if someone needs to be manipulated we put me in charge. Kirsten: Fair enough.

    • Goof: When Johny was confessing to Marissa, her hair was in front of her left shoulder in one scene and behind her shoulder in another. This goes back and forth a few times.

    • Goof: When Marissa is talking to Ryan at the diner, a piece of her bangs falls onto her forehead. When the camera goes to Ryan and changes back to her, they are tucked back, and then when it comes back to her a third time, it is falling out again.
