    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Paul Westerberg's "As Far as I Know" was recorded circa 2001 and did not see the light of day on record until 2004, while Stan Ridgway's previously-unreleased "Whatever Happened to You?" didn't see the light of day until a couple of months before this episode aired. Dramatic license is one thing, but... really.

    • QUOTES (11)

      • Katie: I promise I will never lie to you again.
        RT: Good. And don't worry about paying me back the money. You're already working way too hard in school.
        Katie: Yes, I am.

      • Corey: Sophia, you have no idea what I'm going through right now.
        Sophia: Oh, please. You're so transparent! You like this girl, and someone came into the picture and asked her out before you did, and you didn't speak up.
        Corey: You can tell all that just by looking at me?
        Sophia: No, Katie's loaded, so she told the hostess, and the hostess told the waiter who told his brother, my colorist -- who's here celebrating his 40th -- who told me!

      • Roger: Ah... RT, can I tell you something?
        RT: Sure.
        Roger: Close your robe. I can see your Hall and Oates.

      • Corey: And Wray's music is terrible, you know? How did he get to open for The Smiths?
        Katie: Well, he took the quick road to success. He was willing to sell out, and people that do that usually do really well.

      • Katie: You guys, this is serious! Have either of you ever been to Cancun? Because I need details.
        Sophia: I have, and I had an absolutely fantastic time! I don't remember any of it!

      • Wray: So, uh, what's the deal with her?
        Corey: Tuesday? She's--she's angry... dark... spooky... kind of--kind of a borderline sociopath.
        Wray: Yeah, she's hot! Is she dating anyone?
        Margaret: I'd break you, little man.
        Wray: I was talking about Tuesday.
        Margaret: I'm busy Tuesday, and I said forget it.

      • Roger: You keep a checkbook in your bathrobe?
        RT: Sometimes you have to buy stuff in the bedroom, son.

      • Katie: No, let's make it an even $1300.
        RT: No problem.
        Corey: So, Katie, where you staying in Cancun?
        Katie: Uh... the El Cancunaday Inn.
        Corey: I don't think I know that hotel. Is that by the ocean?
        Katie: Yes. It's next to the, uh, marina.
        Corey: Oh.
        Katie: It has an excellent view of Point Quitit.

      • Corey: Katie, just ask Dad for the money... explain what happened.
        Katie: I can't do that. Daddy trusts me, and that means the world to me... and I'm not going to jeopardize that with the truth.

      • Corey: How can you be a thousand dollars in debt?
        Katie: I don't know. I paid my minimal balance every month.
        Roger: Don't you realize you're paying interest on the interest? That's how they make their money.
        Katie: That's not nice.

      • Corey: Well, he's Wray Thorn now, huh? Got himself a little gig, opening for The... Smiths on Friday?!
        Tuesday: Hey, you're opening the store on Friday. You're both in the music industry.
