Courtney's first high-school appearance, but her character is being bullied.
was also the name of a jimmy neutron episode.
Darren: And since when do you support the band geeks anyway?!
Ginger: Aren't you forgetting Macie, who used to be your best friend??!
Darren: She is still my best friend!
Dodie: Ginger, I can't bail on the P.E.P. If i do, the future may affect my children, and my children's children! and my children's children's children!
Carl: My lunch told me to throw it, Milty's butt told me to kick it!
Ginger: Ludicrous. It's a synonym for ridiculous. Somehow, I feel that the football team getting new uniforms is ludicrous.
Darren: There is nothing ludicrous about those uniforms!
This episode contains two references to popular misconceptions of Roman history. The first one is when Ginger says "Et tu, Macie". This refers to Caesar's last words "Et Tu, Brute", when he was murdered in the Roman senate. Shakespeare also used the line in his play Julius Caesar. Historically Caesar either died silently or uttered a Greek version of this quote.
The second allusion is when Carl shouts "Morituri te salutant". This phrase was supposedly uttered by gladiators before fighting in the arena but historically it's a quote from a Roman general.
