    • Julie: (seeing Gabe frown) Well, they gave you Woodman's old job and his old face.

    • Gabe: I have an announcement to make.
      Juan: Is this announcement gonna be good news?
      Gabe: Yes and no.
      Freddie.: Oh wow, man, you better give us the bad news first. (Woodman enters the classroom) Boy, that was fast!

    • Gab: I'd like to say that there are worse things than listening to my announcements.
      (Carvelli and Murray enter the oom)
      Arnold: And here comes two of them now.

      Arnold: What's the first?
      Gabe: Payday.

    Notes (1)

    • From this episode on, John Travolta is billed as a "Special Guest Star". Carvelli and Murray are introduced as more frequent characters, to add to the growing number of replacements the show would host for Travolta and Kaplan.
