      • Kathy: Anyway, next time don't tell me I can't go shopping by myself.
        Scott: Of course, we could sprain her ankles.
        Kelly: We could break 'em, break both legs.
        Kathy: Ooh, I bet you could kill a girl that way.

      • Kathy: Let's go out and find one.
        Scott: Kathy, we are two aging men.
        Kelly: Whom you have beaten to their arthritic kneecaps.

      • Kathy: Do you know what you two are?
        Kelly: What's that?
        Kathy: Mexico poopers, that's what. And that's how it's going to read in my diary.
        Scott: Right. You can also put down that we are two simple, honest lads who have the terrible job of keeping you out of trouble and the newspapers so that you don't embarrass your easily-embarassable father. So let's go get something to eat, shall we?

      • (on the phone)
        Kelly: Scotty? Listen. No you're not. You're not. How can you possibly be asleep when you're talking to me? Yes. Now wake up, will you?

      • Kelly: What's eating you, anyway?
        Scott: I don't know, man. It's tensions or something. It's as if... it's as if a dead cat walked across my grave.
        Kelly: Well, that's silly. How could a dead cat walk?
        Scott: Well, that's what I mean. Cause tension just having me think about it.

      • Scott: You all right?
        Kelly: Yeah, I'm all right. I've heard of guys stringing along for years on one kicking.

      • The title refers to the nursery rhyme that goes, " There was a little girl/ Who had a little curl/ Right in the middle of her forehead./ When she was good,/ She was very very good/ But when she was bad/ She was horrid."

      • Kelly: So from now on, until you leave, this wonderful Taxco hotel suite you have here, is your life, Kathy Sherman.
        This line references the popular TV show, This is Your Life, which had people from their guest's life reunite with the show's guest of honor that week.

      • Scott: The Monster That Ate Cleveland?
        This quote refers to a favorite movie of the character Maynard G. Krebs from The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis.

      • Kathy: Punjab and The Asp on duty.
        Referencing the Little Orphan Annie comic strip that first saw print in August 1924. The strip featured the adventures of Annie, an 11-year-old orphan taken in by "Daddy" Warbucks. Punjab is a 8-foot-tall Hindu who works for Daddy Warbucks, and The Asp was a sinister Asian villain.

      • Kelly: There's the cave of the seven dwarves.
        Referencing the seven dwarves of the Germany fairy tale of Snow White. The fairy tale provided the basis for the Disney animated adaptation in 1937. The dwarves are miners and go off each day, while Snow White takes care of their cabin after they take her in. The seven dwarves named in the movie are: Doc, Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy, Bashful, Sneezy, and Dopey.
