T.J.: What are you doing down here? I went in your room and you weren't there.
Floyd: I came down here 'cause I couldn't sleep. I just came down to read.
T.J.: Well then leave a note or something. Don't just not be in your room.
Mo: Here's your money. Now why isn't the engine working? And no paper clips this time. That was embarrassing!
(T.J. inspects the car)
T.J.: Hmm. You're right, the engine's fine. You're out of gas.
Floyd: This is what scares me about the whole Internet thing, when you meet someone on there, you never really know who you're talking to.
Karen: I've been talking to a guy who's selling bootlegg games for only $20, I can find that much in my dad's couch.
TJ: That's because they're bootleggs, as in not 100% legal, hence, a crime.
Karen: The only crime is charging fifty bucks for a game it costs two dollars to make.
TJ: Good point.
(Mark has let TJ and Karen try out his virtual surfing game he's making)
Mark: The problem is you're wearing sweaters and jeans, it kind of ruins the whole effect. You really should be in swim suits.
TJ: Yeah, that may be winter weather in Hawaii but not DC which stands for darned cold.
Detective Shelven: This guy has been arrested before for this thing. He was out on probation. Just talking to your son and his friend was a direct violation of that law.
Floyd: Will he be getting out anytime soon?
Detective Shevlen: No sir.
Floyd: Lucky for him.
Mo: Horn's working
Mo: Horn won't stop working
When the Disney Channel first began airing Smart Guy in September of 1999, they did not not air this episode until many months later, perhaps after realizing the educational value of this episode.
