    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Goof: When Dwayne is reading his poem in class, the female student in the front row (shown from behind) goes back and forth from wearing a green sweater with a black hair tie to a red sweater and matching red hair tie.

      • Goof: Dwayne has trouble coming up with a single line of poetry before his dream visit from William Shakespeare. However, in the season one episode "If Only For One Night", he wrote Denise Huxtable a poem and claimed to have borrowed parts of it from Shakespeare.

    • QUOTES (10)

      • Shakespeare (to Dwayne): Of course it's about math. But tell her it's about her. The woman's fine!

      • Professor Mann: Now someone else could pick it up and think...
        Ron: It was too damn long!

      • Whitley: Math is no one's first love!
        Dwayne: It's mine.
        Ron: I thought it was Denise Huxtable.

      • Dwayne: (Reciting his poem called "My First Love")
        She's always been a challenge to me
        From our very first hello
        I pursued this woman of mystery
        Determined she would not be a puzzle to me
        I soon found comfort in her complexity
        I look into her dark and smoky eyes
        Admiring her angles and curves
        Her elliptical lips
        She divides men from boys
        Adding and subtracting hearts
        Until alone I stand, heart in my hand
        She is mine
        Solve for x, my first love.

      • Whitley: Kim, Dwayne Wayne wrote me a love poem. He said I had elliptical lips!
        Kim: Oh Lord.

      • Ernest: Hi, Kim.
        Freddie (to Kim): Don't even look at him.

      • Dwayne (offering his suggestions for how to alter the balcony scene in Romeo & Juliet): Juliet, thee like thou and thou likes thee. Yes, I said 'yes,' woman. Why don't you and me go down to the midnight parking lot at Bumpy's and get busy?

      • Kim: So, did you get some sweet lip or not?
        Freddie: Kim, there are times when not touching is just as stimulating as touching.
        Kim: Aw, no sweet lip!
        Freddie: And this is not one of those times!

      • (Walter has just recited his poem, "Ode to Jaleesa.")
        Dwayne: I think I now know why Jaleesa left you standing at the altar.

      • Professor Mann: Do you like Michael Jordan?
        Dwayne: Who doesn't?
        Ron (angrily): Piston fans.
