When Paul is telling Bridget, Cate and Kerry that he use to be the Yell Captain, the bottle of water in Kerry's hands alternates from being upright with the lid off, to on the its side with the lid on between scenes.
Kerry asks 'How does an owl stomp on you?'. Yet in her chant, she sings 'Liberty owls will STOMP on you!'
Editor's Note: Just because she objected to the stomping cheer, her tryout was just a way to prove to Bridget she could be a cheerleader, and she ended up being better than Bridget, and she still objected to the whole popular crowd thing as well.
Paul: Bridget thinks the only reason Kerry's doing this cheerleading thing is to spite her.
Cate: Well maybe she is. And maybe she's not.
Paul: That was helpful.
(after Paul learns Kerry made cheerleader instead of Bridget)
Cate: Tell me, Paul. What exactly do you think... (waves her hands in the air, strokes one hand near her neck, and holds up her finger to her lips) means?
Bridget: This is all my fault.
Paul: No, it's not. It's my fault for falling in love, getting married and having kids!
Paul: If you two can't be civil, I want you to both go to your rooms!
Bridget: Dad, we share the same room.
Paul: I had a little chat with Kerry in the car.
Bridget: He did?
Bridget: I hate those things! The ones where he almost cries.
Kerry: Yeah, he is such a cheerleader!
Paul: Yell captain!
Paul: This is something new for Kerry, can't you let her enjoy it?
Paul: (About Kerry) Have you ever considered she might be happy?
Bridget: Oh please, like she's ever happy!
(At cheerleading tryouts)
Kerry: Oh my god, my IQ is plummeting just by being here.
(Kerry and Bridget are arguing)
Rory: I think I'll walk to school today.
Paul: Nice move.
Cate: Paul, what are you doing?
Paul: (concentrating on video game) Couldn't sleep. Girls fighting. Re-examining my life. Had to find out why Rory is so obsessed with these games.
Cate: What time did you start finding out?
Paul: About three am.
Rory: And you're only there.
Cate: Kerry has the right to be cheerleader and Bridget has the right to be upset about it.
Paul: What about my rights? I pay for everything.
Cate: Don't you read those parenting books I give you?
Paul: No, I just skip to the chapters on how to keep them from having sex.
Bridget: You know how long I've been dreaming of this?
Paul: Well let's see, Sabrina was busted on Monday. So since Monday.
Kerry: I don't know why you're so upset. They said you might make the squad. You can spend a year doing drill team.
Bridget: You better sleep with your eyes open.
Paul: Did she say drill team? Poor Bridgie. When I was in high school we called drill team "The Dork Squad."
Cate: I was on drill team.
Paul: I'm a little stunned. Why would Kerry even want to be cheerleader?
Cate: Same reason you wanted to be a cheerleader.
Paul: Yell captain.
Paul: (About Bridget) Cate, she is so unhappy. Make it better.
Bridget: Kerry, Lindsay's called like seven times. (throws phone)
Paul: Honey, in America we say it's for you, then we throw the phone.
Paul: Hey beautiful.
Cate: Oh Paul please, I've been in catheter hell all day.
Paul: I'm good.
Paul: I'm mad at you! It was something you said.
Paul: Let's start a family.
Bridget: You know, you've made this, like, the third worst day of my life.
Paul: This is worse than lost in the forest?
Kerry: Mom, did you know dad was a cheerleader?
Cate: Well, I married him, so I guess not.
Tommy: In high school, I was a cheerleader...
Paul: Me too!
Paul: Me too! Cheerleader magnet!
Tommy: (To coworkers) Hey, back in high school, Hennessy was a cheerleader!
Cheerleaders: The owls will stomp... stomp on you!
Kerry: How exactly does an owl stomp on you? It only weighs like one pound.
Kerry: Two! Four! Six! Eight! These mashed potatoes are really great!
Paul: When I was in high school, we called drill team the "dork squad."
Cate: I was on drill team.
Rory: Way to go, Dad.
Kerry: I can't believe you're encouraging your daughter to join the airhead squad. Aim high!
Paul: They're not all airheads, Kerry.
Kerry: No, some of them are potheads.
Paul: Nowadays cheerleading is qualified as a legitimate sport.
Kerry: Sport? Ha!
Cate: Besides, it would look good on Bridget's college application.
Kerry: College? Ha!
(Bridget and Kate come in the door)
Paul: So, is my little girl a cheerleader?
(Kerry enters, skipping and throwing poms poms in the air)
At the end of this episodes theme song, Rory sprays water on the camera with a water gun before shutting the door.
