      • Judy: You know what they say, "lightning strikes twice."
        Mrs. Cutler: That's actually not what they say. Brian can explain it to you.

      • Mrs. Cutler: Did [Lauren] get any outside help on this project?
        Judy: You mean from us?
        Mrs. Cutler: (laughing) No, of course not!

      • Linda: It's so nice to see you guys have finally taken an interest in junior high. Only took you 25 years!
        Bill: When you have kids, I'm sure you and donor sample 3256 will feel the same way we do.

      • Judy: There's nothing funny about your sister being in honors science.
        Brian: You want me to stop laughing, but you keep saying it.

      • Brian: Let me get this straight: you want me, to help you, help Lauren cheat?
        Bill: Preferrably without her knowing.
        Brian: Are there any rules in this house anymore?

      • Judy: Hey, Mrs. Cutler, you look really good for someone who spends the whole day in a room full of eighth-graders.

      • Bill: We stunk at science, but in our defense it's because we're very lazy people who tire easily.

      • Judy: We helped Lauren a little bit with her science project, and she's gettin' her grade today, and we're just a little anxious to see how she did.
        Linda: Yeah, you were always a whiz at science, Judy. I remember the project you did in junior high. I believe the title was "Will Punching My Younger Sister Result in Her Doing My Science Project for Me?"

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Lauren mentions Brian wore "Vulcan ears" for a class picture. Vulcans are the logic-oriented race from the Star Trek universe.

      • Linda states she's pretty sure the father of her cat's kittens is "a tabby who goes by the name Nathaniel Pawthorne," a play on author Nathaniel Hawthorne. This also implies Nathaniel is not hers, though later in the series she has a cat by the same name.
