  • Trivia

    • In the episode "Curious George", George says to his mother, "One day I'm going to walk into a therapist's office with a wheelbarrow of money, and talk until he begs me to leave." In this episode, an incredibly similar event occurs between George and the School Therapist.

  • Quotes

    • Vic:That's one of the things I don't like about this country. You settle your problems with guns. I mean, I remember growing up in Cuba-
      George: Not now, Vic.
      Vic: If we had a problem with a boy at school, you would chase him around with a stick! A few weeks later he would show up with his own stick but we would just hold him down and hit him again!
      George: I wish I had a stick right now.

    • Angie: Do you know how long I've waited to take someone in this house to therapy?
      George: You can take yourself. Tell the doctor about your know-it-all syndrome.
      Angie: There's no such thing.
      George: Well you would know!

    • Max: I want to talk to the counselor.
      Angie: Of course, honey! We'll all go!
      Max: Could I just go with Dad?
      George: I don't know, Max. Your mom really wants to take one of us to therapy. It's like the Olympics for her.

    • Benny: You started crying when I brought you home from the hospital and haven't stopped since!
      George: You'd be crying too if your mom snuck you out in her purse because she didn't want to pay the bill!
      Benny: I was afraid I'd be overcharged because your head was the size of two babies!

    • Angie: Tomorrow they're bringing a trauma counselor to the school.
      George: He doesn't need counseling! I never had counseling and I saw my mom shoot the repo man!

    • Max: I heard a couple of pops and then I saw some kid holding his arm.
      Angie: You must have been terrified.
      Max: No, I've seen worse in my video game Car Jacker 3 when you shoot a soccer mom for not handing over the keys to her SUV.
      Angie: WHAT?
      Max: I didn't want to but I needed the extra points.

    • Benny: George, you remember when you use to wet the bed?
      George: It was the only hot water we had.

    • Angie: Are you naked under there?
      George: No.
      Angie: Then why are you're pajamas on the floor?
      George: Why are kids shooting kids? Nothing makes sense anymore.

    • George: (the other parents tell how the shooting effected their kids, he's trying to top them) That's nothing, my son's so scared he's having nightmares and he wet the bed. He's also dyslexic so when he heard the shots he ran for the exit because he thought it said 'taxi'.

    • George: (spilling his guts to Phillip) And then I remember when my mom said my chickenpox were God punishing me for not making it to the potty!

    • Phillip: (to George) Max wet his bed because he had a nightmare that he was being chased through the house by a killer and he couldn't find you.

    • Angie: He is completely desensitized, he acts like the shooting didn't affect him at all.
      George: What would you rather, him being shaking and crying? He's handling it the Lopez way.
      Angie: How do you do that?
      George: We block it out.
