    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (10)

      • Tuesday: I don't care what people think. I'm not embarrassed of anything. Nothing embarrasses me. I couldn't care less what people think... I was so embarrassed when he showed up at the club.
        Margaret: Wow, you're shallow.
        Tuesday: I'm not shallow.
        Margaret: You're right, I'm sorry... You're more of a hypocrite.

      • RT: What are you doing home?
        Roger: I didn't go to work. I can't be seen. I'm a horrible mutant.
        RT: Roger, you gotta get over this. It's not the end of the world.
        Roger: Why do bad things happen to people with good hair?

      • Roger: What are you doing?
        RT: I'm making sure that every dish in this kitchen is dirty.
        Roger: Why?
        RT: Because I know Katie, that's why. She won't be able to stand it. First she'll wash just one. You know, for herself. Then she'll do a few more. And then before you know it, the whole kitchen is clean. It is a slippery slope, my friend.
        Roger: There's ketchup on the floor.
        RT: Good! This is war!

      • Corey: But what's so wrong with my look that Tuesday's embarrassed?
        Katie: Remember the Sesame Street song? You know, where the one thing is different from the other things? They showed 3 circles and a square thing.
        Corey: Hey, I am not the square thing!

      • Katie: I don't know! I'm sorry. I'll make pancakes for dinner tonight.
        RT: What are you talking about? Tonight is lamb chops.
        Katie: Look, I have a full course load this quarter, and I can't keep up with the house.
        RT: It's alright, honey. Your schoolwork is the most important thing. You did iron my shirts, right?

      • Katie: You're different in her world. See, when Owen and I go out, everyone stares, because he's in uniform. But when I go to the naval base, I'm not in uniform, so everyone stares at me.
        Corey: Don't you think they stare because you're the only woman among 5,000 men?
        Katie: Oh. Hee hee hee! I'm gonna wear something really hot next time!

      • Candy: You think if I stare at you long enough, your head will explode?
        Corey: Are you asking if I think you possess those powers?
        Tuesday: Wait. We need to talk.
        (Candy leaves)
        Tuesday: All right. I think we're alone now.

      • Corey: Did you see that? She deliberately, on purpose, did not give me a flyer!
        Tuesday: Maybe she didn't see you... standing right in front of her with your hand out.

      • Roger: That's it! I'm calling in sick. I need a really good excuse.
        Margaret: Nobody ever questions mono.
        Roger: Oh, mono. The kissing disease. Sexy.
        Corey: You know, I'd pick a disease that people would actually believe that you could get. Like, uh... mumps or gingivitis.

      • Margaret: Man, I wonder what she's gonna wear to that club tonight? Maybe that new mini-skirt she made out of safety pins.
        Corey: What are you talking about? She said she's not going.
        Margaret: Yeah, you're right. Everyone knows you don't wear safety pins after Labor Day.

    • NOTES (4)

      • Tiffany is credited as playing Candy, but no character name is ever given on-screen.

      • Joseph Ackler is credited as Joe Ackler.

      • Music: "Karma Chameleon" by Culture Club; "People Are People" by Depeche Mode; "Footloose" by Kenny Loggins

      • Special guest star Tiffany is best known for her #1 hit singles "I Think We're Alone Now" (a cover of the Tommy James & The Shondells song) and "Could've Been." The editor is surprised they weren't featured in the episode, since they're both from 1987, and hence, would've been right at home with the show's exquisite attention to period detail.
