    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (6)

      • Ingredients of the new hot drug, Glint, as observed: comet bathroom cleanser, turpentine, bleach, cleansing pellets of some sort, and several unknown bottled liquids.

      • Glint (the new drug in school) is also known as Glow, Glimmer, and Satan's Harelip.

      • Jerri's Lesson Learned of the Episode:
        Jerri: Well, with the exception of Shelly and Poppy Downs, everything turned out to be pretty ok. They never did find out who killed Poppy. So I guess justice was served. I also realize that the second time through high school, I'm a little bit wiser. Oh, I'm still doing the wrong things, but at least I'm doing them the right way.

      • Both Mr. Noblet and Mr. Jellineck tell Jerri to lock the classroom door on her way out of the room.

      • Jerri's part invitation reads, 'Party at Jerri Blank's House. Bring Hot Fruit or Meat!'

      • Mr. Noblet tells the class to read chapter 15 - 23. Which is 'Rise of the Inca's.'

    • QUOTES (14)

      • Mr. Noblet: I wouldn't worry about those grades. This party is an A+.

      • Hospital Worker: What are you doing in here?
        Jerri: Oh, I was holding a vigil.
        Hospital Worker: Oh, you must be her uncle.

      • Sara: (To Jerri) Don't rub your feces on the lampshade.

      • Mr. Jellineck: (To Jerri) You're beautiful... Inside.

      • Jerri: Well, you seem like an outsider.
        Mr. Jellineck: I'm an artist.
        Jerri: Well, I'm havin' a hard time fitting in and making friends.
        Mr. Jellineck: Really? You have such a beautiful brother.
        Jerri: Step-brother.
        Mr. Jellineck: Oh, of course.

      • Mr. Noblet: Jerri, I'm a little bit concerned about all this party talk. I think you should be more concerned with your failing grades.
        Jerri: Failing grades? We've only been in school three days.
        Mr. Noblet: I've calculated your final grade point average based on on this morning's geography pop quiz. I'm afraid it all adds up to you being held back.
        Jerri: But if I don't graduate by the time I'm 50, I'll be the laughing-stock of Flatpoint High!

      • Jerri: History has taught us many things. For example, I can't smoke one stick of pot or take one needle of coke. One night, I'll make this quick, one night I was thrown by a horse and I had to have a laminectomy .
        Mr. Noblet: Thank you, Jerri.
        Jerri: Now you all know the size of a king-sized sheet, right? Well you try scrambling down that in the dark after a buddha scag or a snort-a-horse.
        Mr. Noblet: Really, Jerri. That's fine. What was your report on again?
        Jerri: Brazil.

      • Jerri: I can make drugs! I could wip up a batch tonight with my eyes closed.
        Girl: Is that a fact?

      • Coach Cherri Wolf: Alright, let's climb some ropes!
        Student: Don't we need mats under the ropes?
        Coach Cherri Wolf: Only if you fall.

      • Jerri: I'm still doing the wrong things. But, at least I'm doing them the right way!

      • Jerri: The Downs lost a child and I lost a turtle. Which is a greater loss? I don't know.

      • Jerri: They never did find out who killed Poppy so I guess justice was served.

      • Mr Noblet: I wouldn't worry about those grades Jerri this party is an A+.

      • Jerri: I've never seen anyone do THAT much glint before.
