    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (15)

      • Davis: We should have an initiation.
        Oscar: We did have an initiation. I hit you with a stick.
        Davis: That was the initiation? There should be more pomp and...
        (Oscar hits Davis on the arm with a stick)
        Oscar: I'm not finished.

      • (Brent over-reacts to Emma lending the potato bowl)
        Emma (sarcastically): Thank god you're here! Wanda was about to make off with the potato salad I made her. (Wanda laughs)
        Brent: I don't care about the salad. I mean, ...I do. Ultimately, I'd like some. But you're lending her our potato bowl? THE potato bowl? Our priceless family potato bowl?
        Wanda: Jeez, you guys are hard-up for heirlooms.

      • Lacey: Hank, listen, maybe we were a little hard on you the other night... your story wasn't all that bad.
        Hank: But it was a good story! I mean, ...I wanted some peanut butter, and then, ...wait, a guy wanted some peanut butter...
        Lacey: Okay, you know what? Let's not open that wound again. The important thing is a story has a point. You know when you read a book?
        (Hank stares at her blankly)
        Lacey: Okay, you know the little cartoons that come with gum?
        Hank: Oh, yeah, they're great!
        Lacey: They have a point.

      • (Wanda's searching e-Bay)
        Wanda: I'm looking for a potato bowl.
        Karen: Oh, you should borrow Emma's; she's got a great one.
        Wanda: I broke it. So I need to replace it so Emma and Brent will stop whining.
        Karen: You broke the potato bowl? THE potato bowl?
        Wanda: So Emma, Brent and you will stop whining.

      • Oscar: Something's different about these mashed potatoes.
        Emma: Yeah, that's because it's rice.
        Oscar: They need sour cream.

      • Hank: How's it going, Hank?
        Hank: Oh, funny you should ask that. That reminds me of another time when I saw a rabbit... 'Is that a rabbit?' says I. (he stares intently at Brent)
        Brent: What're you doing?
        Hank: Making eye contact.
        Brent: I don't know where you're going with this, but I just want to be friends.

      • Brent: Sometimes, to tell a good story, you have to embellish.
        Hank: Of course! Why didn't I think of that?
        Brent: 'Cause you don't know what 'embellish' means?
        Hank: Still, no excuse.

      • (Oscar walks down the street wearing a sash)
        Davis: Hey, Oscar, you win a beauty contest?
        (he and Karen both laugh)
        Oscar: Actually, I came in last... in the 'Davis Is Stupid' Pageant.
        Karen: You came in last?
        Oscar: Yeah. It's the 'Davis Is Stupid' Pageant, so if I came in first, I'd be as stupid as Davis.
        Karen: But you're in the pageant, so you're still stupid. Stupider than the average person, just not as stupid as Davis.
        Davis: I've never heard of this pageant.

      • Hank: Hey, Lacey!
        Lacey: So it's 'Lacey' now, is it? I thought maybe you'd be calling me 'Pork Chop Face' like everybody else.
        Hank: Well, if that's what you'd prefer, but it seems kind of mean.

      • Lacey: Slouching is such a bad habit... which reminds me of a story.
        Brent: Oh, Wanda! You should hear this great story!
        Lacey: Okay, so my dad takes us camping...
        Wanda: But you wanted me to clean the gunk behind the cooler.
        Brent: No, check it out! Come for the eye-contact, stay for the posture.

      • Oscar: You know what the first thing the club should do is?
        Davis: Build a fort!
        Oscar: Twelve-year olds build forts!
        Davis: Get some twelve-year olds to build it... good thinking!

      • (after Oscar and Emma make fun of Brent using funny voices)
        Brent: Did I miss the part where my parents go nuts?
        Lacey: Hank told them the story of you telling him how you burned me the other day going on about my slouching camping story.
        Brent: Okay, maybe you're all making perfect sense and I've gone nuts.

      • Brent: Plus, you were the one that spilled coffee, not me.
        Hank: I was just doing what you told me to do; I was embroidering!
        Brent: Now [Lacey] thinks I'm a jerk.
        Hank: Actually, she called you a low-down, dog-swinging, two-faced jerk-aholic.
        Lacey: I never said that.

      • Emma: Hello, Son.
        Brent: Son? you only call me 'Son' when you're up to something.
        Emma: Oh, don't be silly, dear child! I made you some potatoes for lunch.
        Brent: Oh, well, that's nice of you... which only heightens my suspicion.

      • Karen: Let's see how much we raised.
        (Davis opens the cash box and looks in)
        Davis: How much did we charge per serving?
        Karen: Two-fifty.
        Davis: And how many people did we serve?
        Karen: Oh, it had to be dozens.
        Davis: So, if I've done my math correctly, this shouldn't be competely empty, right?

    • NOTES (1)

      • Eric Peterson was nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award 2007 in the category of "Best Performance - Male" for his work in this episode.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Emma: I don't like to brag, but I have the whole set of Little Mermaid glasses.

        Emma is bragging about her family heirlooms; The Little Mermaid (1989) is one of the more popular Disney movies. The merchandising for the movie is such that it's doubtful that any of the items sold bearing the characters from the movie will ever be worth anything.
