    • Amy: We're okay with you going overnight with Topanga. We just want to make sure we're clear on the sleeping arrangements.

      Alan: Anythin happens to Topanga, I'll kill you.

      (Alan nods yes)

    • Alan: This is like a real college, right? Because we're looking over this letter from the admissions office, and there are an awful lot of typos in it
      Eric: Show me one! (reads from letter) "Yours Truly, the Bean of Admissions" Yeah? So? It's a very difficult school to get into. They don't just let anybody in.
