      Earl: They grow up oh so fast.

    • Fran: Earl, did you hear that? Charlene's coat just said we're bad parents.
      Earl: Charlene who?

    • Earl: Let me tell you something little girl. You don't need fancy clothes.
      Charlene: Oh, please.
      Earl: Look at me. All I have is this one shirt, and I command respect wherever I go.
      (Ethyl runs into Earl with her wheelchair)
      Earl: Ow!
      Ethyl: Out of my way, you worthless sack of fat.

    • Fran: Girls, I know you're disappointed, but I think you'll find stuffing yourselves won't make you feel any better.
      Charlene: So you're saying we need TV too?

    • (Ethel gives Charlene the $500 she needs to buy a coat)
      Charlene: Oh Grandma! Do you mean it?
      Ethel: I was saving it for your college education, but a voice inside my head said 'the only way she's going to college is inside a cake at a frathouse party'.

    • Earl: Who took my credit card? Tell me.
      Baby: Can't make me talk.
      Earl: Jeez!
      Earl: I'll give you a cookie.
      Baby: Charlene! Charlene's the one! Charlene took it! She's the one you want! Charlene! I saw her take it. I saw her do it. Charlene, she took it. I watched her.
      Fran: Earl, what's going on in here?
      Earl: Charlene took my credit card.
      Baby: Didn't hear it from me.
      Earl: She snuck in here while I was sleeping and stole it. We've raised a common criminal, Fran. I gotta call the credit card company. She could be out there buying stereos and boats.
      Fran: Earl, you have a $50 limit.
      Earl: Yeah, well, it's a good thing I'm such a credit risk.

    • Charlene: I gave up my best friend for you.
      Coat: They all do.

  • Notes

    • This episode mainly dealt with teen peer pressure to become popular by buying expensive clothing just to be noticed, something that still goes on to this day.

  • Allusions

    • Lynyrd Skynyrd:

      When Robbie receives a phone call for Charlene, we can see he is watching DTV (Dinomusic Television) which features an interview with Lyzzard Skyzzard's guitarist.

      This is a take on one of America's greatest rock bands, Lynyrd Skynyrd.
