    • QUOTES (8)

      • Brian: I chipped my tooth during a knife fight.
        Judy: Oh, my God, you were in a knife fight?!
        Bill: Imagine the gayest knife fight you ever saw, then add dancing.

      • Bill: [Amy] thinks you're a tough, sexy guy. Wear your leather jacket and take her to a club.
        Brian: Oh, okay. I suppose I could Google "leather," "club," and "sexy guys" and see if I can find a place.

      • Judy: I really want this job, so we're going to go to Dr. Holman's and be a happy, loving family or I'll stab each and every one of you in your sleep!

      • Bill: Judy and I have a costume collection, too. Isn't that right, fraulein?

      • Bill: (to Brian) You get upstairs and I'll tell everyone you're helping [Amy] with her homework. And don't you dare help her with her homework!

      • Judy: Lauren, you have to set higher standards for yourself. Otherwise you'll end up with some loser.
        Bill: Look at what I taught Tina to do!
        Tina: (swigs soda and burps loudly)
        Bill: This one is mine!!

      • Brian: I can't lie about who I am.
        Bill: Of course you can. I lie about who you are all the time.

    • NOTES (1)

    • ALLUSIONS (5)

      • When Brian is wearing the costume from The Planet of the Apes, he recites the famous "damn, dirty apes" quote.

      • Dr. Holman challenges Brian to name the eleven Doctor Whos, which Brian correctly determines is a trick, as there's only been ten. Started in 1963, Doctor Who was a popular BBC sci-fi program for over 25 years, and in 2005 was relaunched. For the record, the ten as of the initial airing of this episode: William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, Christopher Eccleston, and David Tennant.

      • Dr. Holman challenges Brian to recite the 1st Law of Robotics. This is in reference to the three laws posited by Isaac Asimov in his 1942 short story Runaround, though this one actually appeared as early as his 1941 short story Liar!

      • Bill confirms that Brian really does have a hot date, "not like that 'Lara Croft' we thought he was going with." Lara Croft is the heroine from the Tomb Raider series of videogames.

      • Brian sees Dr. Holman's sci-fi collection and exclaims, "for the love of Luke Skywalker." Luke was the hero of the original Star Wars trilogy.
