    • When the frat boys are cheering Max and carrying him around, just before they put him down Maria is shown behind him at the wall, waiting to talk to him. When the shot changes and the frat boys are walking away Maria again walks up to him.

    • TRIVIA: Much like Max in the episode "Blind Date" Michael's powers go crazy when he drinks. This time his senses are magnified to a greater degree.

    • TRIVIA: This is the only episode written by Melinda Metz, who wrote the original Roswell books series that the show is based on.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Isabel: Is this a confidence issue? Because women can detect insecurity a mile away, Kyle.
      Kyle: And you detected?
      Isabel: No. I'm married. My radar's been dismantled.

    • Kyle (to Jesse): Morality has no place on New Year's eve. I saw an opportunity, and I took it.

    • Maria: You should have seen him standing there all brave and noble. It was enough to make you fall in love with him all over again.

    • Isabel: It can't be that hard, Kyle. I mean, you used to date girls.
      Kyle: Look, it's been a long time, all right? I used to be a fun guy. I used to have fun, but then the alien invasion happened, and I sorta... my social life started to suck.

    • Kyle: Don't cramp my style.
      Isabel: You have style?

    • Kyle (praying to Buddha): Thank you. Now that my immortal soul has been cleansed... on to more terrestrial concerns. It's been a dry couple years. Kyle needs a woman. Kyle needs her badly. Kyle needs her tonight.

    • Isabel: Kyle Valenti, it is your lucky night... Rudolph's Shiny New Year! No?
      Kyle: No, I can't. I'm going out.
      Isabel: On New Year's Eve?
      Kyle: Yeah, imagine that. I'm going to that Enigma thing.
      Isabel: You know where it is?
      Kyle: No, but I'm going to find it.
      Isabel: Or, you can save yourself the trouble and buddy up here with Rudolph and his shiny New Year. And, ooh, I brought Goobers.
      Kyle: Tempting, but no.

    • Frat Guys (cheering on Max to help them with the keg): Townie, townie, townie!
