  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Mandella: So you're not hoping to get [a carnation]? Not even a little tiny bit?
      Kat: From who? Every guy here has the depth of an inflatable kiddy pool.

    • Michael: Cameron, how's it going?
      Cameron: Not so good. I feel weird. Ever since Bianca got here, my head has been filled with rainbows and Enya.

    • Bianca: Kat, I need your help.
      Kat: Finally. The first step is admitting you have a problem. The next step is making you a brunette again.

    • (after Walter suggests to Bianca to have a car wash for a fundraiser)
      Kat: Great idea, Dad! Half-naked cheerleaders, wet and soapy, standing on a street asking for money.
      Walter: No car wash.
      Bianca: Daddy.
      Walter: No car wash!

    • Bianca: Mail me to another family.
      Delivery Lady: Okay, but first, here's your dad's package.
      Bianca: I don't wanna think about my dad's package.

    • Mandella: That was awesome. It's like your mouth knows kung-fu!

    • Charlie: (after leaving a carnation on Kat's desk) I showed you my flower. Now show me yours.
      Kat: Leave... me... alone!

    • Kat: I just have one thing to say to you. I'm not that girl.
      Patrick: What girl?
      Kat: The girl who's turned on by the spat boy crap. I'm not skipping home to scribble in my journal that maybe you're a vampire.
      Patrick: Noted.

    • Larry: Excuse me, which way are the foxy moms?
      Deliveryman: Shame on you. You're married!

    • Bianca: (about Chastity) Kat was right. For a popular girl, she is a teenage Long Duk Dong.
      Cameron: I'm sorry, who?
      Bianca: The dictator of North Korea.

    • Larry: You girls are late. Where were you?
      Bianca: We were having sex with the soccer team. It took longer than expected.

    • Kat: (about the yearbook pictures she took) It looks like one of those herpes commercials where everybody is so happy despite the fact that they have herpes.

    • Chastity: (About the fundraiser) Okay, but no bake sale. The last thing this school needs is more fat people.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Bianca: I thought I'd learn the routine because, God forbid, someone gets sick or hurt or pregnant. Thanks a lot, Juno!

      Juno, a fictional character played by Ellen Page in the 2007 film of the same name, is a pregnant teen who has to decide between aborting her baby or giving it up for adoption.

    • Kat: Ohhh to bad, I think I saw a glare from your Devil horns, Beelzebub.

      Beelzebub is a name of demon derived from the Philistine god Ba'al Zebûb. In literature, it is often depicted as a fallen angel, a high-ranking demon, or Satan himself.

    • Kat: High school is like Vietnam and these stupid flowers are Agent Orange.

      Agent Orange is the code name of the herbicide sprayed over South Vietnam by the US military during the Vietnam War which resulted in hundreds of thousands of casualties.

    • Kat: I'm not skipping home to scribble in my journal that maybe you're a vampire.

      This is a reference to Twilight, where mysterious Edward catches the eye of Bella, who later finds out that he is a vampire. Or also it can be a reference to the Book and TV series The Vampire Diaries which was about a girl, Elena Gilbert who caught the eye of two Vampire brothers and kept a journal.

    • The episode name is a reference to 1977 Cheap Trick song of the same name. Several cover versions have been recorded including one by Letters to Cleo from the original 10 Things I Hate About You and one by KSM, which serves as the show's theme song.
