    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Instead of flashing over a still frame of the episode like usual, 15 seconds of the credits were shown in a technical font on the computer screen.

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Jo: All I'm asking is a simple question. What should I do?
        Computer: Why didn't you say so? Solution is obvious. End friendship.
        Jo: ...What?
        Computer: This relationship causes unhappiness. Therefore, sever relationship. End friendship.

      • Jo: Great, now you're starting to sound like Mrs. Garrett.
        Computer: Probably the same voice chip.
        Jo: No, I mean she's usually the one that gives us advice like that.
        Computer: You think she's busy later?

      • Computer This data is incomplete. What exactly is your relationship with Blair?
        Jo: We don't have a relationship.
        Computer: You have to. Are you enemies? Strangers? Acquaintances?
        Jo: Well, I... I guess we're sort of friends.
        Computer: Friends trust. Friends understand. Friends forgive. Neither of you has done that.

      • Tootie: Natalie swore it was the wrong one.
        Natalie: I didn't swear.
        Tootie: You put your hand on the Bible!
        Natalie: It was a cookbook! I swore on chicken gumbo.

      • Jo: What I need from you is a printout saying that 'Jo is right, Blair is wrong'. You got it?
        Computer: Got it. Who is Jo?
        Jo: I'm Jo.
        Computer: Pleased to meet you, sir.
        Jo: I'm a girl.
        Computer: Still pleased. Sex makes no difference to me.

      • (Talking to the computer)
        Jo: I feel a little bit silly talking to you about this, but uh.. see, I have this problem. Her name is Blair. See, we had a fight, I hate her guts, what should I do?
        Computer: Are you talking to me?
        Jo: Who else?
        Computer: You must type in the data. I am not programmed to read lips. However, if you wish to talk I can be voice activated. Press the red lever, but don't tickle.

      • Computer: I am the Hubcraft Interactive Interpersonal Communication Counseling Program DK-40R, but you can call me Steve.

      • Computer: Good afternoon.
        Jo: How would you know? You've been turned off all day.
