    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Catherine buys M.E. her first bra in this episode. However, in past episodes, we can tell she's wearing a bra by the lines in her clothes.

    • QUOTES (11)

      • Rene: This is not as innocent as you led me to believe.
        Laura: It's anything you want it to be.
        Rene: I checked, it's used in witchcraft and goddess worship, it's a religious icon.
        Laura: I can take this pencil from your desk and use it for worship. It's made of wood and elements from the earth, and I could make it a religious icon too. But does that mean if I give you a pencil I'm trying to convert you?

      • Rene: I'll just have salad, too rich for my blood.
        Davis: I'll have potatoes and salad.
        M.E.: You'll have salad and vegetables and potatoes AND meat.
        Colliar: It's called venison.
        M.E.: And venison is deer meat. That's what guns do, Davis, they kill. You killed it, you eat it.

      • M.E.: So did he cheer as he watched it die, or throw up?
        Colliar: If he wants to tell you he will.
        M.E.: He's a big hunter now, he's not going to want to tell me things.
        Colliar: You don't tell me everything you and Kelly talk about.
        M.E.: If you want to know how Kelly feels about her period, I'll let you know. Now come on, what happened?
        Colliar: Honestly...he cried. Don't worry, he'll toughen up.
        M.E.: I hope not.

      • Colliar: He's 13... when I was 13 I killed my first deer, if memory serves, you were 12.
        M.E.: Davis is more vulnerable than I ever was.

      • Rene: What is the answer? I don't know the answer, but I know what it is not. It is not that we create robots out of teachers with no personal life or emotions.

      • Rene: You don't want a Wiccan as a teacher...I don't want a racist in the classroom... but can I prohibit a Republican, too? How about people who listen to electronic music? They might influence our kids to abandon piano and the violin. Where does it stop?

      • M.E.: Remember that Goth thing that Kelly went through?
        Rene: She didn't get that from a teacher, that was peer pressure.
        M.E.: Alright, but tonight Kelly is going to be performing in a play because one of her teachers, a former actor, inspired her. So you see, teachers' personal lives do affect kids.

      • M.E.: So what're you saying? If Uncle Jimmy could put aside his racist ways, then... what? He should be allowed to teach?
        Rene: Well, intellectually speaking.
        M.E.: Oh forget that. (taps her heart) What do you think?
        Rene: Hell no, I wouldn't let Uncle Jimmy near anybody's kids.

      • Colliar: When you were his age you were fishing all the time, so what's the difference?
        M.E.: Who ever got mowed down by a fish hook?

      • M.E.: It was different. When we were kids, there was no Columbine.
        Colliar: Yeah, but just as many crazy people, just less news coverage.

      • Rene: Just because she studies a pre-Christian religion...
        M.E.: Pre-Christian religion? What is that supposed to mean?
        Rene: It means there were religions before Christianity like Buddhism, Hinduism, and Wicca is one of them.
        M.E.: Oh my God, they've got you under their spell, haven't they?
