    I really feel so sorry for Amy! That guy was so rude to her "Your 4 pounds over weight and 3 years too late!" And Amy thanked him for his "constructive criticism"! Dickweed!!! Amy really deserves to get this chance and then she doesn't! On the other hand Ephram is gorgeous! He's so sweet with his supportive boyfriend role!

  • TRIVIA (3)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Delia: At least they (boys) have control over their bodies. Stuff doesn't just happen to them without them letting it happen.
      Amy: Well, um, let me put it this way. In a couple years when a boy gets called up to the chalkboard to do a math problem and he brings his textbook with him, just remember this little conversation, okay?

    • Jake: (About Cameron) So how was it?
      Nina: Great. Fine. She's moving here. Bye.
      Jake: What!?

    • Ephram: Ya know, this place is so world-renowned, you'd think they'd be able to afford to decorate.
      Amy: Easy there, Queer Eye, it's not a design center.

    • Bright: I'm totally going into medicine.
      Amy: You might have to start by going to college first.

    • Amy: I've wanted to be a ballerina ever since I was a little girl.
      Harold: Yeah. And you also wanted to be a princess and an astronaut, and, I believe, a carrot at one point.

    • Nina: Wow...
      Jake: Yeah?
      Nina: I mean, damn. You can kiss.

  • NOTES (3)


    • As Bright, Ephram, Amy, and Hannah are standing in front of the movie theater at the beginning of the episode, a poster of Ghost Ship is visible on the left side of the screen. Ghost Ship is a horror movie that was released in 2002 and starred Julianna Margulies, Emily Browning, and Gabriel Byrne. The film included a fictional ship that was based on the SS Andria Doria, a real ship that sank in 1956.

    • Cameron: (To Jake) Well, if Mohammed won't come to the mountain...
      Cameron is paraphrasing the proverb: If the mountain will not come to Mohammed, then Mohammed will go to the mountain. In other words, If someone won't do this thing for me, I'll do it for myself.

    • Cameron: (To Jake) ...and I thought we could hit the slopes. I found this amazing ski resort. It's kinda like the one that we used to go to at Mammoth.
      Mammoth Mountain Ski Resort is located on the eastern slope of California's Sierra Nevada Mountains, just east of Yosemite National Park.

    • Amy: (To Ephram) Easy there, Queer Eye, it's not a design center.
      Queer Eye for the Straight Guy is a Bravo TV series about five gay men who specialize in fashion, food & wine, grooming, culture, and interior design.

    • Amy: (To Ephram) How very Stepford Wife! How sweet!
      Amy is referring to The Stepford Wives, a 1975 motion picture (remade in 2004) which depicts life in a small suburb where the women happily go about their housework – cleaning, doing laundry, and cooking gourmet meals – to please their spouses. The movie's ending reveals the truth about these perfect wives.

    • Ephram: (To Amy) Am I allowed to say, Break a leg?
      In the performing arts, it is considered bad luck to say Good luck to an artist before his/her performance. Instead, one should say, Break a leg.

    • Andy: (To Delia) I should have left all the parenting to Judy Blume.
      Judy Blume is the author of both nonfiction and fiction books read by adults as well as children. Her titles include Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret, Superfudge, Blubber, Just As Long As We're Together and Forever.

    • Andy: (To Amanda) Well, Delia's Aunt Flo paid her first visit.
