      • (After Nina tells Dick he comes from the "wrong side of the tracks.")
        Mary: That's not what I'm saying... out loud.

      • Tommy: (reading Lorna's poetry) Death signed my yearbook. 'Have a good summer', he wrote, 'see you next year'. And then I noticed it wasn't my yearbook he signed, it was my tombstone.
        Lorna: What do you think?
        Tommy: I like it. I especially like the surprise ending here.
        Lorna: You are the first one to get the irony.

      • Dick: I don't mean to panic anyone, but I'm afraid the calamari has been infested with baby squid.

      • Tommy: I am now the coolest punk in school.
        Dick: Well, congratulations. What did you do?
        Tommy: I got suspended for setting off the fire alarm.
        Dick: They suspended you? You saved hundreds of lives.
        Tommy: That's the best part, there was no fire.
        Dick: Tommy, this is outrageous. The next time you set off the fire alarm, you'd damn well better start a fire first!

      • Dick: What's going on?
        Nina: Oh, she's having a big affair.
        Dick: What? You tramp!
        Mary: Dick, it's a catered affair.
        Dick: You're cheating on me and your diet?

      • Dick: Why do they call is bacon? You don't bake it, you fry it. Why the devil can't they call it frycon?

      • Episode Title
        The episode title, and plot elements, are plays on George Bernard Shaw's play Pygmalion (which was filmed in 1938 starring Wendy Hiller and Leslie Howard), which deals with the attempt to pass off a girl of plain upbringing as a cultured member of high society.
