    • Carol: Excuse me, aren't you Kelly Bundy?
      Peg: Actually, I'm her younger sister.
      Carol: Wow, you must have had a wild life.
      Peg: Not lately.
      Kelly: Uh... I'm Kelly Bundy.
      Carol: Wow, you must have had a wild life.
      Kelly: Not lately. So, what can I do for you?
      Carol: Well, you were always my idol. I thought you might help me. See, I've been grounded and I've got this big party to go to and every kid in town with a tattoo is going to be there.
      Kelly: Ah, the Rodriguez affair.
      Carol: Yeah. But I can't go. And if I don't, I'll be socially dead.
      Peg: You must go.
      Kelly: Mom, she's grounded. And it is wrong to openly defy your parents. So you're going to have to sneak out.
      Carol: But what if they check my room?
      Kelly: Well, before you sneak out, just tell your mother that she's starting to look like your father. And then tell your father that it's that time of the month and you've got cramps and you wanna talk. Believe me, no one's going to check your room, talk to you or look at you for days.
      Carol: Wow, you're a genius! How do you know all this?
      Kelly: How does the turkey know how to fly? He just knows.

    • Miss Parker: Children, this is the last stop for our school program, "Scared Smart," in which we learn that being cool in high school does not mean success. To demonstrate, I give you the former Queen of our high school. She was so pretty and so popular. And she dated all the male teachers. And my husband. And my boyfriend, who was only 16, but, God, did he earn that A. Anyway, she learned nothing in 5 years of high school and you worshipped her for it. You used to know her as Kelly Bundy, but now she answers to the name she'll carry for the rest of her life. Hey, waitress!
      (Kelly turns around and the school girls scream)
      Girl: It is Kelly Bundy! I've got to get to the library!
      Miss Parker: Well, Miss Bundy, now that you're a waitress, I'd like to give you a tip. Stay away from my new husband. He's 18 and still peaking.
      Kelly: Well, he'd have to peek. He wouldn't want to look at it dead-on.

    • Wayne: Hey, didn't you take my picture once when I was on a pleasure cruise? I think I was with Florence Henderson.
      Jefferson: You think if I was really that good-looking guy from The Love Boat, I'd be doing this? No, I'd be rich. Another picture, Captain, er, uh... I mean, Fonzie.. uh, Al?

    • Bud: Come on, kid. This could get ugly. We're going to the park to pick up some chicks. You know the routine. Find a pretty girl, tell her I saved your life in 'Nam and I no longer have any feelings left in my hand. And the only thing that could bring it back is the touch of a beautiful woman. And that's woman! Let's not have any stupid mistakes like last week, okay?
      Seven: Hey, I'm six. You should know better.
      Bud: So should you. He was carrying a cat and singing show tunes, for God's sake.

    • Al: (to Kelly) Bundys are losers, not quitters.

  • Notes

    • David Faustino's younger brother, Michael, appears in an uncredited, non-speaking role as a customer at the counter at Kelly's diner.

    • The title of this episode is a reference to the 1974 movie Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, which centered around a waitress at a diner and was the basis of the long-running sitcom Alice.

    • Notice during the scene with Jefferson and the cameraman that he mistakenly calls Al "Captain" (from The Love Boat) and "Fonzie" (from Happy Days).

    • When Jefferson enters the diner with a camera, the owner asks him if he was on The Love Boat. Ted McGinley, at one time, played a photographer on The Love Boat.

    • Amanda Bearse does not appear in this episode.
