Phil's Scheme: Phil challenges Eli to Scrabble. If Eli loses then he must call the girl of his dreams and ask her out.
Phil ends up losing the best of 7 series and his last $48 to Eli.
Absolute proof that Stuckeyville is in some other Universe: "Makeovers" was set at Christmas time (the show ended showing a snow fall) and Mark decides to have gastric bypass surgery. In "Neighbors", the thread of Mark's stomach staple progresses, but somehow the leaves have jumped back on the trees and some have even returned to green. True, "Neighbors" did have an ongoing thread about Stuckeyville's being undoubtedbly the best place to live -- with sewers and gutters that clean, they just might be right!
Nancy: I love a man with ripped ankles.
Eli (to Phil): You gotta savor the flavor.
Ed: You underestimate the people in this town.
Carol (to Molly): You have an opportunity to shine and you're terrified.
Sam (to Phil): You're just not likeable.
Molly (sharing her philosophy of helping students): Kicking ass, doing nothing, and throwing frogs.
