    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Goof


        At the end of the episode Adult Joel quotes a line from the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Adult Joel says, "Life moves pretty fast. You don't stop and look around once in a while. You might miss it." The actual quote is "Life moves pretty fast. You don't stop and look around once in a while you could miss it."

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Joel: I don't know what happened today. I guess I was having some mid-life teen crisis. I had all these expectations of what this birthday was suppose to be. (to Pat and Isabelle) But you guys were right. I was acting like an old man. When I should've been singing Twist and Shout on a parade float. It means I took a good look in the mirror and I'm going to start acting my own age.

      • Joel: God, fifteen sucks. Look at me, I live with my parents, I can't get a credit card, and I have an oral report on Magellan in fifteen minutes.
        Pat: Sounds like you, my friend, are homesick for thirty-five.
        Joel: I am not going to let turning fifteen get in my way of celebrating my thirty-fifth birthday. Let's cut school.
        Pat: And shave our heads. Or just cut school.

      • Joel: Like Ferris Bueller said, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you might miss it."
