  • Quotes

    • Maria: You and me, Liz. We've got to stick together, hold our ground, all right? Hold our ground. No matter how much they try to charm us. They are like a drug. We have to just say no.
      Liz: Maria, I try and stay away, but I don't... I can't help myself. (Liz turns and sees Max walk in) He obviously feels the same way.
      Maria: Okay. Do you remember that commercial when the girl takes the pan and bashes up the kitchen? Okay. This is your brain on Max.

    • Driver: If you were an alien and could go anywhere in the world, would you pick Roswell?

    • Isabel: I think it's time you either put up or shut up, Michael.
      Michael: Very poetic, Isabel.

    • Maria: You know the boy that I slept but didn't sleep with?
      Amy: Unfortunately the shock has indelibly printed his face on my brain.
      Maria: He's in jail.
      Amy: Oh, this just gets better and better, doesn't it?

    • Amy: I hope you're not talking from experience.
      Maria: Just yours.

    • Maria: He's a cop. And you're a hippie.
      Amy: Well, opposites attract.

    • Amy: Maria, there are like three single guys in all of Roswell. And two of them live in the Desert Inn Retirement community.

  • Notes

    • Even though they are credited, Colin Hanks (Alex) and Nick Wechsler (Kyle) do not appear in this episode.

  • Allusions

    • Title: Independence Day

      The title makes references to Michael's emancipation and sudden independence. It also could be a reference to the 1996 film Independence Day starring Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman, which relied a huge amount on the Roswell conspiracy for its storyline.
