    • Coach Brantley: You watch wrestling on TV?
      Chris: All the time. Hulk Hogan, André the Giant, the Iron Sheik. I love all those guys.
      Coach Brantley: It's too bad, 'cause all that crap is fake.

    • Referee: The Tessio Tigers do not have a wrestler to compete in this weight class, and therefore, the Tattaglia Sleeping Fish win by default!
      Coach Brantley: Look at you with your win by forfeit, huh? You're just one step away from getting that varsity letter.
      Chris: (narrating) I'm glad my neck still works.

    • Narrator: While Tonya tried to get into Drew's group, my mom tried to get into a pair of jeans. (Rochelle tries hard to put on a pair of jeans) She sweated less during childbirth.

    • Rochelle: I made extra if anybody wants seconds.
      Narrator: Nobody wanted firsts.

    • Julius: If this is how you do it and you tryin' to get skinny, I'd rather have you fat.
      Chris: (narrating) That's what Kirstie Alley's man said to her.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • After Julius said that he preferred Rochelle being fat, Chris (narrating) said that Kirstie Alley's husband does the same thing.

      Kirstie Alley is an Emmy Award winning actress, best known for her work in the sitcom Cheers. The joke is that she's currently over-weight. However, when this episode aired, she was no longer married.

    • One of the girls in Drew's audition is called Princess Latifah.

      Her name alludes to the Academy Award nominated actress/singer Queen Latifah.
