  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Carol: What happened last night?
      Sandy: Well, this big tree ran right out in front of me. And I'm gonna be charged with drunk driving.

    • Carol: Is there any chance that the phone just might be broken?
      Jason: I don't think so. I can call the phone company and check.
      Carol: No! Sandy might call and get a busy signal.
      Jason: Honey, we have call waiting.
      Carol: Well, not if the phone is broken!
      Jason: And we won't find out if I don't call!

    • Jason: We were having a nice brunch at a nice restaurant and we were all eating. That noise was totally inappropriate.
      Ben: Well, in some countries, it's considered the highest compliment.
      Mike: Yeah, well, find out where and go there.

    • Carol: Do you guys know everything we do?
      Maggie: Mike trained us very well.

    • Jason: Go ahead, Sandy. Take my daughter anywhere, do anything. Enjoy!
      Sandy: Wow, thanks!
      Jason: I was kidding.
      Sandy: And so was I, sir.

    • Carol: Sandy is not my boyfriend.
      Maggie: He's not?
      Jason: Well, but from the amount of time you've been spending with—
      Carol: He has never said that I'm his girlfriend, so I'm not gonna say that if he's my boyfriend first. I mean, if he hears that I think he's my boyfriend, and he doesn't think that I should think that I'm his girlfriend, I'd sound pretty silly, wouldn't I?

    • (after making out)
      Sandy: Mike was wrong.
      Carol: What?
      Sandy: At midnight you turn into a sex maniac.

    • Carol: You know, I've never been to a college party before.
      Sandy: Oh, they're not much different from high school ones—just more people with facial hair.
      Carol: Guys.
      Sandy: If you're lucky.

    • Carol: Well, you don't look so bad.
      Sandy: Uh, to tell you the truth, I don't feel so hot. I got so many tubes and wires in me, I get HBO now.

    • Carol: Mom, I know I've liked other boys before, but it's never been like this. I mean, I thought it was like this, but now I just see I was being a... a silly teenager.
      Maggie: And now you're a...
      Carol: Mature teenager.

  • NOTES (3)

    • Originally, this episode ended with an epilogue or tag scene. The scene showed the outside of The Seavers' house at night, with lights on. Superimposed was the text:

      "While you've been watching this program, here is the number of people who've been killed in drunk driving related accidents: 29."  About one minute later, the 29 turned into a 30. None of the actors appeared in this scene.

      The segment is missing from most syndicated prints of this episode

    • The role of Chrissy was uncredited.

    • Prior to appearing on Growing Pains, Matthew Perry was in a TV show called Second Chance, the name of this episode.
