    • Reeves: [confronting Gomez' father] You know, you're inspiring, Gomez. I am a teacher on duty in a high school gym. Kids could come walking in here right now. The principal could come walking in. I got a whole book of rules telling me what I can and cannot do. With all that against me, I have an overwhelming urge to deck you right here and now!
      Mr. Gomez: Oh, yeah? [starts to open office door]
      Reeves: Yeah! [slams door] See, you've got this great need to hit people, to vent your frustrations with your fists. Ever since all this started, I've built up some frustrations of my own, and I would love to take them out on you! But, I won't. I think fighting doesn't do a whole lot more than just mess up your fingers. But since you were passing through, I had a very strong need to mention the impulse!

    • Reeves: Look, this isn't the Swiss Family Gomez. You're a high school kid. You're supposed to be going to high school, not out trying to earn money to pay the rent!

    Trivia (1)

    • When Coach Reeves goes to see the school nurse to look at Gomez's file, he tells the nurse that Gomez is an 11th grader. However, three episodes later, in "A Few Good Men", Gomez supposedly graduates along with Reese, Hayward, and Goldstein.
