When Cate complains about every one changing their favourite cookies:
look at the plate, before Jim walks in the door there are two left on the plate, and when Jim asks for one the plate is empty.
In this episode we learn that Ms Crupp's first name is Alice but in the season three episode "Torn Between Two Lovers" C.J. says that Ms Crupp's name is Mindy.
Princeton, like all Ivy League universities, does not offer any athletic scholarships. In fact Ivies hardly offer scholarships of any kind. Several, in fact, offer none at all (and financial aid is strictly need-based).
Bridget: (to Cate) Mom, guess what? But you know, you'll never guess, so I'll give you a hint. Scouts are coming from Princeton this Friday to watch "somebody's" tennis match, and they may give "her" a full ride scholarship!
Cate: (surprised) Princeton?
Cate: (excitedly) Oh my god! (she and Bridget jump up and down gleefully) Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god!
Bridget: I always knew deep down I was "Ivory" League material! I gotta go tell Kerry!
Cate: Uh...we might want to think of the best way to do that. Of course, she will be very happy, but you know, Kerry has always dreamt of going to an "Ivory" League school.
Cate: A scout is just coming to the game. It's a little early for a welcome to Princeton party.
Rory: But we'll be ready when it happens.
Cate: So did Bridget tell Kerry yet?
Kerry: (from upstairs) It's Ivy League you moron!
Rory: It's hard to tell.
C.J.: Ugh, complain, complain, complain! That's all you've done since you've got here.
Kerry: Fine, I'll leave.
C.J.: Oh! No! No! No!
Ms. Krupp: Did you know you have a 'D' in my class?
Bridget: Did you know I have a ninety-mile an hour serve?
Ms. Krupp: Did you know that in order for students to compete in athletics you need at least a 'C' and because of this you won't be playing your match on Friday.
Bridget: Did you know i'm about to cry?
Rory: But if you do see Hercules, play dead.
Rory: Well, there's a chance he'll just throw you around a little bit and loose interest. Well, cya!
Cate: Kerry, what are your favorite cookies? I'll make some.
Kerry: I just said peanut butter!
Bridget: My life sucks!
C.J.: You too?
Bridget: Well obviously your life sucks.
Cate: This is so unfair! Everybody changes their favorites in here every five minutes! Who can keep track?
Grandpa Jim: Oh butterscotch! Bridget's favorite!
Kerry: This is off the chart's unfair!
Granpda Jim: All right, i'll put one back.
Kerry: Not the cookies! My life!
Cate: It was very hard for me, I did it against my better judgement.
Bridget: But the important thing is, you did it anyways.
Bridget: Nobody uses trigonometry in real life, it's like all the other stuff you learn in high school.
Rory: What if by some fluke, he manages to make it through the night?
Grandpa Jim: Easy, you know the trap door? Nail it shut and lock him up there all night.
Rory: You'd do that?
Grandpa Jim: Ask your Uncle Phil.
Rory: I don't have an Uncle Phil.
Grandpa Jim: Exactly.
Grandpa Jim: You woke me up with your sick dreams, "Slow down Brandy! Slow down!"
C.J.: For your information, I was walking my old dog down an icy street. And then I met a hot stripper named Brandy.
Grandpa Jim: You're scared. Why don't you admit it?
C.J.: I'm not scared! In fact I feel wonderful! Grand! I feel spectacular!
Grandpa Jim: You're wearing my boxers again aren't you?
C.J.: Yes I am!
C.J.: If Kerry were here right now what would you say to her.
Bridget: Try smiling once in awhile and stop dressing like Woody Allen.
Cate: Oh, CJ, I blew it! I'm a bad mother.
CJ: Shut your mouth!
Rory: Are you sure you want to spend the night up there? (referring to attic) It's old and moldy and smelly.
C.J.: Yeah, it'll be like a night with Grandpa.
Bridget: They're giving me a car and a driver.
Kerry(sarcastic): I may not be as smart as you, Bridget, but I don't think that's what "full ride" means.
Mrs. Krupp: Unfortunately I don't make the rules, I just enforce them to the letter.
Bridget(sing songy): Mom's going to fix it, I'm going to Princeton!
Kerry(sing-songy): There'll be no Princeton, 'cause you're a dummy!
Mrs. Krupp: Miss Hennessey, would you like to explain the relationship between chords and sines?
Bridget: If a guy's wearing cords, it's a sure sign I'm not going to date him.
Kerry: It's Ivy League, you moron.
Bridget(sing-songy): I'm going to Princeton, 'cause I play tennis, you think you're so smart, you don't play tennis!
Bridget: I always knew I was "Ivory League" material!
Cate: I made you a big plate of your favorite cookies... oatmeal raisin.
Kerry: Peanut butter!

Hercules: In this episode, a rat in the attic was named 'Hercules' because he had the strength of ten rats. Hercules is a Greek god that was believed to be unbelievably strong, which is why the rat was named after him.
Cate: Oh, C.J., I blew it. I'm a bad mother...
C.J.: Shut your mouth!
This is a reference to the theme song of the original version of the classic movie Shaft, which included the lyrics, "You know, they say that cat Shaft is a bad mother..." "Shut yo' mouth!"
Cate: Extortion is such an ugly word-------Cate's line "Extortion is such an ugly word" is similar to a line Bender said in the Futurama episode "Anthology of Interest 1". Bender's line was "Blackmail is such an ugly word. I prefer extortion." Katey Sagal also starred on Futurama.
