However, his sister Casey, who is already ensconced as a sorority siren, is not too keen on having her younger brother invade her world. From the start, Rusty and Casey's family bond is tested as Rusty heads into rush week and after meeting both her current and ex-boyfriends, he discovers that no one even knew Casey had a brother.

      (Casey scratches)
      Cappie: Did you do that on purpose?
      Casey: (Casey nods) No.

    • Casey: (to Rusty) What the hell were you thinking? A bar fight with Evan? You're the size of, like, one of his arms.

    • Cappie: So, where's Numbnuts?
      Casey: Evan's at Bid Night.
      Cappie: I was talking about Rusty. Now... how would Evan feel knowing you think his nuts are numb?

    • Cappie: Hey Beav, didn't you take some pictures last night? That could jog our memories...
      Beaver: All the pictures I took were of girls flashing their racks.

    • Evan: You're Casey's little brother.

      Cappie: In my book, you gotta respect yourself a lot to walk around showing off a package this early before Christmas.

    • Casey: Now, what can you tell me about Ashleigh just from her appearance? Anyone? There are four things that I see right away. One, the stain on the right side of her Theory shirt. Means she's sloppy. Two, her Marc Jacobs skirt looks brand new, but is last season, so I'm guessing clearance rack raid. Three, her Prada shoes, while quite nice, are too big for her feet. Probably on loan from a friend with better taste and more money. Four...
      Libby: The bags under her eyes. She's a party girl who's probably still drunk from last night.
      Ashleigh: That's all true!

    • Casey: (about Cappie) What the hell is that idiot doing?
      Ashleigh: Good thing you won't ever date him. Oh wait, you did!

    • Rusty: I've gotta go.
      Cappie: Oh, no, it's ok, the bad man can't hurt you now.

      Casey: Whatever!

    • Rusty: I've decided that I want to rush a fraternity.
      Casey: No.

    • Casey: Ok, I knew we'd have to figure out this new situation at some point, I accept that you go here now, it's uh...

      Rusty: Cool.
      Dale: Yea, how bout' you? How'd you do?
      Rusty: Um, 3.9 something, then a 2280.

    • Dale: I didn't mean anything by it, I mean you've got to be pretty smart to get in the honors engineering program.
