  • Quotes

    • Sébastien: You didn't hear a rumour?
      Squib: Look, I was not crying when we watched "Touched By An Angel". I had something in my eye.

    • Adena: What happened to hyper-drive girl?
      Megan: Drove her outta town.

    • Sébastien: You're like... twelve.
      Sunny: Thirteen... In eleven months.

    • Megan: What's wrong with being driven?
      Adena: You might be driven, Megs, I'm just not sure who's behind the wheel.

    • Megan: Thought you French guys were supposed to be all smooth and subtle.

    • Megan: (after turning up late for practice for the first time) I'm sorry, sir, I was helping with the upcoming dance.
      Coach Gunnerson: I don't care if you were helping the Pope fight Tonya Harding in a tag team celebrity boxing match. Now drop and give me twenty.

    • Adena: Thank you for calling the point. Please leave a message, because I'm afraid you've just missed it.

  • Notes

    • We find out from Gunnerson that the strengths of each member in the core Group A: Squib has a powerful serve, Sunny's is her agility, Adena's her hits, Sebastien's is backhand. We find out that Megan only risen to Group A for the fact that she is highly motivated (and probably works the hardest in training wise), compared to anyone else in Group A.

      While Gunnerson mentions to Megan if he made a mistake in putting Megan as Group A, it suggest that Megan was not originally in Group A, but in Group B - making Adena's placing higher as a better tennis player than Megan, when in fact Megan is the one who was interested in tennis and accepted into Cascadia first, as seen in episode 1x01.
