    • Charlene: (the Baby's crying) It's four in the morning, doesn't he ever shut up?
      Baby: I want a pony! No, I want to go to the beach!
      Fran: A whole year, a whole year of this.
      Earl: I can't take it, I'm not going to make it to his third birthday.
      Baby: Give me a cookie! Wanna play horsey! I want a drink of WAAATER!
      Earl: He's not going to make it to his third birthday.

    • Fran: I keep getting angry when I know what the baby needs is love and compassion.
      Doctor: And where is he now?
      Fran: Inside this box...well we had to, he chewed through the straps on his car seat.
      Doctor: Very resourceful...may I see the child?
      Fran and Earl: Uh.......sure, you're the doctor, I guess....
      (Fran and Earl open the box)
      Doctor: Well hello little fellow, look at me and say 'ah'.
      Baby: Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
      Doctor: Close the box! Close the box! Close the box!
      (Fran and Earl close the box)
      Doctor: Terrible Twos?
      Fran: We think so.
      Doctor: Oh, I've seen this a hundred times before. A child of two is looking for his parents to give him some concrete boundaries. So I suggest you wall him up inside a cave for a year. Take this to the hardware store, they'll give you some cement and a trowel.
      Earl: Doc, can I get a refill for this if he claws his way out?

    • Fran: It's not right, Earl. Bribing a child to behave.
      Earl: And if it works?
      Fran: It's a shortsighted, stopgap, quick-fix solution.
      Earl: You don't have to sell me on it.

    • Fran: I keep getting angry when I know what the baby needs is love and compassion.
      Doctor: And where is he now?
      Fran: Inside this box...well we had to, he chewed through the safety strap on his car seat.
      Doctor: Very resourceful...may I see the child?
      Fran and Earl: Uh.......sure, you're the doctor, I guess....
      (Fran and Earl open the box)
      Doctor: Well hello little fellow, I want you to open your mouth and say ah.
      Baby: Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
      Doctor: Close the box! Close the box!
      (Fran and Earl close the box)
      Doctor: Terrible Twos?
      Fran: We think so.
      Doctor: I've seen this a hundred times...so I suggest walling him up inside a cave for a year. Take this estimate, they'll give you a cement mixer and a trowel.
      Earl: Doc, can I get a refund if he claws his way out?

    • Ethyl: This is a dark, terrible day...
      Earl: And we were going to ask you to jump out of the cake.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Green Eggs and Ham:

      When the Babysitter reads a book to the demonic Baby called Blue Eggs and Toast, this title is a spoof on this very popular and recognizable book written in 1960 by Dr. Seuss.

    • The Exorcist:

      The spinning head, the babysitter jumping out of the window, the baby's overall evil transformation; ring any bells? This episode spoofs the 70's horror movie, The Exorcist.

      The classic line from that movie, "the power of Christ compels you," also shows ties to a line in this episode: "the power of rice compels you."
