Foreshadowing upcoming episodes:
-There is a poster at the high school that reads "Hold On Surely Funke!", which is behind Buster when he registers Annyong for class.
-Michael notices similarities between the model home and Saddam Hussein's home.
Buster: Whoa, whoa, whoa! We are not allowed to have candles in here. Mom would freak.
Lucille: Oh, no, it's fine. This is America, baby. You pray how you want.
Shannon: You're the pig. Two strikes, you are out.
Gob: Oh, listen, Shannon, please, it was a one-time thing. I'm not going to even hear from her again. (Phone rings) Oh! Who is Edna W.?
George Michael: Uncle Gob?
Gob: George Michael? What are you doing at a high school dance?
Michael: Listen, um, I blew it, ok? I had to see you. I've been giving this a lot of thought, and I have to do the right thing.
Ms. Baerly: You're going to tell George Michael the truth?
Michael: Oh, that's your definition of the right thing. Uh, I kind of thought is was to make a big dramatic entrance and tell you that I wanted to see you. Ok, I'll get right on that.
Steve Holt: Whoa. Sorry. Students only.
Maeby: Oh, so you're not letting him in because he doesn't share your perfectly shaped nose, your round eye-shaped eyes, your strong square jaw?
Steve Holt: Thanks. You want to dance?
Steve Holt: All right, come on.
Maeby: Steve Holt!
Buster: You're trying to steal from the wrong man. Watch your back, my little immigrant friend.
Ms. Baerly: He knows we're going out. He saw me this morning.
Michael: No, no. I covered that. I told him that you slept with my brother.
Ms. Baerly: That may be the most unethical thing I have ever heard.
Michael: Well, you've only been doing this half a semester. Look, it was a preemptive strike. My brother would have tried to sleep with you.
Ms. Baerly: Wow! Did you make this for me? This is so sweet. I love Hussein.
Michael: You mean, you're interested in him.
Ms. Baerly: Oh, yes. He is a monster. Wow, where did you find this one of him in a Speedo?
Maeby: Who's this?
Buster: Oh, I'm sorry. This is Annyong.
Buster: My mom bought him. She's making me register him for school. He's my new little brother.
Maeby: So, we're related. Hey, do you want to go to a dance?
George Michael: Oh, great, another uncle to compete with.
Narrator: So, George Michael, still angry at Gob, sought out the family expert on making trouble.
Maeby: I know he was dating that girl Shannon.
George Michael: The cheerleader?
Maeby: Yeah, she's probably going to take him to that stupid Diversity Dance. I wish I had someone shocking to take. You know, I actually called Mr. Daniels and asked him, but he got all out of breath and dropped the phone. I never heard back.
George Michael: You know, maybe we should go together. All right, I mean, it's a bad example, I just ... but should we?
Michael: Don't you think you should be taking somebody your own age to the dance, like your cousin? Bad example, but ...
George Michael: Why would he do that? Why would Gob sleep with my Ethics teacher?
Michael: Probably just to get even with me.
George Michael: How would that be getting even with you? I'm the one that likes her.
Michael: Right. Right. No, I know. You and I know that, but Gob, you know, he's not that exact of a target shooter. He just kind of sprays it everywhere.
Ms. Baerly: Oh, hi. Hi, George Michael. I was just looking at this model home. I'm going to go home and think about it. I'm going to go home and think about it.
George Michael: Dad, what was she doing here? I mean, she wasn't ...
Narrator: Michael knew he had an ethical responsibility to tell his son the truth.
Michael: Yes. Your Uncle Gob slept with her.
Michael: Again. Didn't like Nazhgalia.
Michael: Really. And good luck getting rid of her.
Gob: Oh, please. Not a problem. She knows it was a one-time thing. Totally cool.
Michael: So romantic.
Gob: Who's N. Bahn-Ahden?
Nazhgalia: I'm sorry, Michael.
Gob: I'm sorry, too, Michael, but ... looks like we're even. You took something I liked, I took something you liked. Yeah. I (bleep)ed Nazbakalijan.
Lucille: Michael, the little Korean is here, and I don't know what to do with him. At least, I think it's a him. You've got to strip them down to next to nothing before you could even tell.
Michael: Yeah. Mom, I just spoke to Social Services, and although they don't like to do this, if you can prove that it's a bad environment for a child, and I would suggest saying what you just said to me. Don't change a word. They will take him back.
Ms. Baerly: I don't know. I mean, they just threw this class at me after Mr. Daniels had a stroke.
Michael: Oh! (Both laugh) I had him; Mr. Daniels. How is he?
Ms. Baerly: Oh, he, you know, had a stroke.
Michael: Oh. I thought you were joking.
Ms. Baerly: Welcome. I'm Miss Baerly, the Ethics teacher. My goal is to teach your children about the preciousness of life that can be lost by the mindless pulling of a trigger.
Michael: Mmm. No ring.
Lindsay: Hey, look, it's not coming from me. It's George Michael. He told me. I think he wants a mother.
Michael: Well, that's ridiculous. He's got you. He's got our mother. You'd think that would turn him off the entire concept.
Cindi Lightballoon: Mr. Bluth, I'm Cindi Lightballoon. I've studied all your teachings, and I've purchased every tape, and I watch them over and over... I've also lost four pounds on your low-carb Bluth Banana Jail Bars. I've come to learn at your feet.
George Sr.: That's a good place to start.
Narrator: But Gob mistook Michael's basic human decency for a romantic interest, and felt a competitive urge to step in.
Gob: This is Shannon, the girl I've been telling you all about.
Michael: Yes. Girl, indeed. Young girl. That's a young, young, young girl.
Gob: Yeah. Well, she's 18, so it's, like...
Ms. Baerly: ... even minor crimes are punishable by brutally chopping off the offender's hand.
George Michael: Oh. No ring.
George Michael: This is my Ethics essay. I'm supposed to write 200 words on the morality of war—whether a preemptive strike is ever justified.
Michael: Absolutely. It's preemptive, you know? Happened before something else, so... if you can predict aggression, and you want to squash it... I don't know why you're not typing this. It's all good.
George Michael: I'm not sure my Ethics teacher would love if I cheated on my essay.
Michael: Well, you just passed my Ethics test.
Gob: Oh, Nagama, you've got a moustache.
Gob: I mean, you've got milk on your moustache. I mean, you've got a milk moustache.
Narrator: Michael was sharing his bed for the first time in years ... unfortunately, it was with his younger brother, Buster.
Michael: What would Saddam do?
Ms. Baerly: Do you have a wife?
Michael: Yeah, but she's dead.
(they both laugh)
Ms. Baerly: Have you ever been married?
Michael: Yeah, she died.
Ms. Baerly: Oh, God, why are we laughing?
Ms. Baerly: Sweet ride. Are you making dinner reservations?
Michael: No, no. That was my mom. She just had a little Korean dropped off.
Ms. Baerly: Ooh, that sounds good. Let's have that.
Lucille: I don't have the milk of mother's kindness in me anymore.
Michael: Yeah. That udder's been dry for a while though, hasn't it?
Michael: I don't think us sleeping together is working out. You're a grown man. You should be living with your mother.
Buster: Yeah. I miss mom.
Michael: I can tell.
Iqbal Theba (Nazhgalia) and Jane Lynch (Cindi Lightballoon) both have major roles on FOX's Glee.
Guest stars Jane Lynch and Matthew Price worked together on the short-lived ABC drama MDs.
Originally scheduled to air February 22nd, but pre-empted for an episode of The Bernie Mac Show.
Although credited, David Cross ("Tobias") didn't appear in this episode.
The ads in Klimpy's Express are "Stacked!" for a hoagie and "Some Like It Hot, Some Like it Cold" for coffee. The latter is an allusion to the 1959 movie Some Like It Hot!.
The sign is seen when Michael meets Nazhgalia, a woman being portrayed by a male actor, which is another reference to that film.
Ms. Baerly: Where did you get the picture of Saddam in a Speedo?
Speedo is an Australian swimsuit manufacturer, currently the world's largest selling swimwear brand. The men's Speedo swimsuit is tight fitting and very revealing, similar to a bikini bottom on a woman. Slang terms for it include "budgie smugglers" and "banana hammocks".
n/a: Shock and Aww
This episode may have gotten its title because that was the name given to describe the beginning of the Iraq War. Saddam is referenced quite a few times in this episode.
