Unspoken Truths

Aired Thursday 9:00 PM Feb 23, 2004 on The WB



  • Trivia

    • Local Salt Lake City radio personality "Good Buddy" Gavin Sheehan appears in this episode. He is an audience member at The Hook and is clearly visible when the band is preforming its last song. He's the denim wearing guy giving the "Devil/Rock-On" sign just in front of Sarah Lancaster. He used to do several pop-in's while Touched By An Angel was still on the air, and according to him on his shift last week on KCPX, he is apparently going to be "doing more pop-in's for my friends at EUI for the rest of this season, and probably will start turning it into a contest for his listeners to spot him".

      2 English B+
      3 P.E. A
      4 Chemistry C+

    • Nina's attorney is Diane Schumacher.
      Ada's legitimate business is called Nimble Needles.
      Madison's band played at a bar called The Hawk.

    • Peak County High School's address is 2311 N. Mountain View Road, Everwood, CO 80167.

    • Amy's report card said she failed, that is got an F in Trignometry and World Drama, but her parents say that she failed (once again which means she got an F) in Spanish and World Literature.

      Amy Abbott's schedule/report card (Student #2118):
      1 Spanish D+

      4 American History D+

    • Goof: When Linda is pulling groceries out of the bag, she pulls out grapes and then goes to the counter with them and then comes back and pulls the grapes out of the grocery bag again.

    • Madison isn't even of a legal age to be at the bar (she's only 20 years old).

      Note: Some bars let in anyone 18 and older, in which case Madison could have been there.

    • Why are both Bright and Amy taking trigonometry if Bright's a senior and Amy's only a junior?

      Note: Amy could be taking an advanced course, so it's possible she's in that class.

      Note: Because at the begining of the season we learn that Bright failed trigonometry last year and also failed over the summer. It's the reason why he couldn't play football.

    • Ephram and Madison's conversation outside the police station takes place in front of a couple of multi-story buildings. For such a small town (one that has no hospitals and until recently only one family doctor), Everwood has a very large police station.

  • Quotes

    • Andy: I want you to listen to me, Nina. This is the toughest part, this moment. But if you do this right, you won't spend the rest of your life regretting anything or resenting anyone or kicking yourself. I know you want to move on to the next chapter and you will. But I am not about to let you sign on the dotted line and accept whatever standard, minimum crap he is offering. You deserve much more. Do you understand me?

    • Delia: If you let me come to your show, I can talk to the manager for you. The grownups love me.

    • Delia: Are you gonna be famous like where you get to make music videos and Pepsi commercials and stuff?
      Madison: I think it's a little early for that, sweetie. I mean, this manager guy, he might not even like us. Although Jay said he loved our tape.

    • Amy: It's you. I know you.
      Colin: Stop following me.
      Amy: Stop, stop, please. You left me. You left me alone and now you're here and I'm here and you shouldn't be here.
      strong>Colin: Neither should you.
      Amy: I loved you. I loved you. I want you to come back.
      Colin: Stop following me. Just stop.
      Amy: Why are you being mean?
      strong>Colin: I want you to leave me alone. Won't you understand? I want you to go.
      Amy: Go where? Where am I supposed to go? I failed school, Colin. I failed my brother. II failed my parents. I failed you. Where do you want me to go? I don't even know where to start.
      strong>Colin: You can start by saying goodbye.
      Amy: No. No, I can't.
      strong>Colin: Yes you can.
      Amy: Goodbye. Goodbye.

    • Bright: These are cool. I don't know if they do me justice. I mean, they look good, but do they say I'm a genius?
      Ephram: No because they don't speak.

    • First man in bar: Oh, yeah. I wouldn't throw her out of bed for eating nachos.
      Second man in bar: Hell, no! I'd drip that melted cheese right on top of her.
      Ephram: HEY!
      First man in bar: Whad'ya want?
      Ephram: No, I, I was just, I was, I was just wondering if, if you guys might know where the, um, where the bathroom is. [long pause; men give Ephram the 'once-over'] Thank you.

    • Ephram: Is that what this is about? You dumping me for the hair model?
      Madison: No! Stop! You're drunk.
      Jay: And ugly!

    • Ephram: "This is definitely one of those moments that sucks that Mom's not here [long pause, dog barks in background]. No offense.
      Andy: None taken.

    • Bright: Yeah, having sex with a rock goddess tends to have an effect on a guy.
      Amy: They're sleeping together?
      Bright: Whad'ya think they were doing this whole time, playing solitaire [pause] or some other two-person card game?

    • Ephram: And I've lined up a tutor....
      Andy: And what is the name of this tutor?
      Ephram: Señor El Gato.
      Andy: Señor El Whato?
      Ephram: El Gato. It means cat. See, my Spanish is getting better already!

    • Andy: I have your report card.
      Delia: Run for it!

    • (Ephram grounds himself and Andy stares in shock)
      Andy: (to himself) Unbelievable!

    • Andy: I showed him. I threw those car keys back in his face.
      Nina: Ohh! That'll show him. Maybe next time you can raise his allowance!

    • Bright: (about Aida) Dude -- I love her.

    • Ephram: (holds up his fake ID) I'm Gus Wahlburg. I'm an organ donor from Kentucky.

    • Mike Erwin (Colin Hart) took an uncredited role in this episode. The producers probably wanted to surprise the audience.

    • This was the last appearance to date of Nora Zehetner (Laynie Hart). Although Amy later comments that she needs to call Laynie and apologize for not believing her about Tommy, she apparently never does.

  • Allusions

    • Ephram: I'm Gus Wahlberg.

      Could be a reference to "Marky" Mark Wahlberg, singer and actor (Boogie Nights, Planet of the Apes).

      Perhaps Bright's fake ID go-to girl is a closet New Kids on the Block fan? Although Marky is from Massachusetts, not Kentucky, and I don't know if he's an organ-donor.
