  • Quotes

    • Cory (to Alan): Shutter marks still showed after one coat. Had to borrow from mom to buy more paint for second coat. I work two days, painted 16 shutters and a fence. Know how much money I made? I owe eight bucks.

    • Cory: Come on Mr. Feeny, have some pity. I've been out of work for eleven years!

    • Morgan (dialing the phone): Nine, one, one. Hello? Yes, I'm stuck here and I can't get down. My parents are outside fighting. Listen. (holds phone towards the backyard)
      Mr. Feeny (heard from the backyard): You're drowning my floribundas!
      Morgan: They just shot the neighbor! (waits for response) Hold on. Let me ask. (shouting to the backyard) Mommy, what's our address?!

    • Cory: Dad, nobody likes a whiner. Now, I need a job.
      Alan: You need to be a kid.
      Cory: I don't wanna be a kid.
      Alan: Well, that's too bad, because once it's gone you can never get it back.
      Cory: I wanna be able to afford stuff!
      Alan: So do I!

    • Feeny: Alan, my father was a firm believer in hard work. He worked me from sun-up to sundown. Look how I turned out.
      Alan (to Cory): I don't want you working anymore.

    • Alan: What's he want this time?
      Amy: A fifty dollar squirt gun.
      Alan: A fifty dollar squirt gun!? No really, what's he want.
      Cory: Dad, we're not talking an ordinary squirt gun. We're talking the Hydrosat 3000Z. It's the big boy on the block.
      Alan: That's nice Cor. Pretty steep though, maybe for Christmas.
      Cory: Hey great, a water gun in December. I'll be the little boy spreading pneumonia.

    • Cory: Dollars!? Get a pulse! Five bucks to paint all those?
      Mr. Feeny
      : Five dollars a piece Mr. Matthews. That's five times two shutters times eight windows.
      Cory: 5 x 2 x 8... What's that... like 58 bucks?
      Mr. Feeny (smiling): $58 it is. You are worth every inch of that C+ I gave you in math.
      Cory: Thanks, Mr. Feeny, you won't regret it!
      Mr. Feeny: Oh, I expect I shall...

    • Cory: What, do all women have antennas hidden somewhere on their bodies?
      Eric: I dunno. None of them will let me look.

  • Notes

    • This episode was going to be scrapped, but Michael Jacobs really liked its "charm" and forced ABC to air it.

  • Allusions

    • Minkus: Go ahead, make me wet.

      This is a reference to a quote from the movie Sudden Impact:

      Harry Callahan: Go ahead, make my day.

    • Ellis:It'll blow your head clean off.

      This is a reference to a classic line in the movie Dirty Harry:

      Harry: I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?
