FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goof: At the beginning of this episode when talking about the first gas station, the narrator and the picture show it as Sinclare but the closed caption shows it as Hennigan.

  • QUOTES (14)

    • Edna: Fred Slaughter's in the examining room, more bowel trouble.
      Dr.Brown: Oh joy.

    • Amy: My dad is going to kill me.
      Ephram: I'm sure he'll understand when you tell him why you went.
      Amy: That's not the way it works at my house.
      Ephram: How does it work?
      Amy: He yells, I apologize, there's a sentencing of some sort, and then I plea bargain with my mother until the sentence gets reduced.
      Ephram: In my house it's more like, I yell, he yells, we both keep yelling, and eventually someone gets tired.

    • Dr. Abbott: Did I mention I had only three hours of sleep last night?
      Edna: About a hundred times now. I swear, you yammer on like an old woman. Besides, we're almost there.
      Dr. Abbott: Almost where? We're in the middle of forest oblivion. If I didn't know you better mother, I'd think you brought me out here to knock me off. On second thought...

    • Dr. Abbott: I'm familiar with gonorrhea of the throat.
      Dr. Brown: Not personally I hope.
      Dr. Abbott: Listen here, Dr. Cocoa Puffs, if I treated anyone for anything, I wouldn't tell you about it. There's this little rule, called Doctor-Patient confidentiality... perhaps you've heard of it.

    • Brenda: Well I for one say it's about time, that thing has just been a safety hazard for years.
      Edna: Your mouth is more of a safety hazard than that bridge and no one's torn you down...yet.

    • Dr. Brown: I have a modest proposal Doctor.
      Dr. Abbott: You're donating your body to science to further the medical understanding of the North American dimwit.

    • Dr. Abbott: Newsflash! You're not here to save the world, Dr. Brown. Just to annoy it.

    • Ephram: What? What is it? Are you moving us to Zimbabwe or something? What?
      Andy: No no no, it's nothing like that, I'm just thinking about something. It's funny actually. Well it's not so much funny 'ha ha' is... you see... the thing is, I don't know whether or not you've ever had sex.
      Ephram: And you never will.
      Andy: Ok then. Good talking to you.

    • Andy: Look, Ephram, I think you're being just a little bit melodramatic, it's not like I'm trying to ruin your life.
      Ephram: You don't have to try, you do it pretty naturally.

    • Andy: I can't do that Ephram, besides your mom used to go to all the PTA meetings, and she was a member of the school board, you never minded that.
      Ephram: Mom used to make banana bread for the bake sales, she didn't front line any of my sex assemblies.
      Andy: Well you've seen my cooking, I can't do bake sales!

    • Bright: I'm kind of like Elka (Real World-Boston). In that, I'm very attractive, but I haven't, you know, done anything. You know.
      Harold: Oh!
      Bright: Actually my reasons have less to do with religion, more to do with the fact that my girlfriend's won't. Which is why I'm SO done with freshmen.

    • Amy: Anyways, what's the big deal about gonorrhea? It's completely curable. Unlike the herp, which never goes away. Right dad?

    • Andy: (Referring to Rose) Cool wife. She ever let you play with the gavel?

    • Narrator: Legend has it this bridge was constructed by a young man and women who lived on opposite sides of the river the two fell in love and contructed the bridge so they could meet in the middle and share what would be their first kiss. From that day on it would be known appropriately as the kissing bridge and if people had just stuck to the kissing Dr. Brown would have been able to avoid one heck of a crisis.

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Hamlet: Amy starts calling Ephram "Ham" because she thinks he looks like the picture of Hamlet on her copy of William Shakespeare's famous play.
