Principal Edwards: That was in the past. We're in the now, Chris, and now you're late.
Chris: Momma, do I have to go to school? I mean, it's snowin' like crazy.
Rochelle: It's snow, Chris, not Armageddon. Now hurry up. You know the buses are gonna be runnin' slow.

Julius: How much money did you have?
Rochelle: A dollar.

Music from this episode:
J. Geils Band's "Freeze Frame" plays at the beginning of the show.
Chris and the principal lip sync and dance to Run DMC's "Rock Box."
Rochelle addresses the robber as "Scarface." Scarface is an Al Pacino movie about Tony "Scarface" Montana, who comes to Miami from Cuba and becomes a powerful gangster. "Scarface" was also Al Capone's nickname.
Chris (narrating): I went back in to find crouching tiger, hidden principal.
This is a play on the 2000 movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, which featured several scenes of gravity-defying martial arts moves.
