Goof: In "The O.C.: A Day In The Life", creator Josh Schwartz said that The Baitshop was an all ages venue that didn't serve alcohol, yet in this episode we clearly see crates of beer being delivered, and Alex kisses 'the beer guy'. Answer: He said it was an all ages club with an extensive juice bar. He never mentioned not serving alcohol.
Goof: How is it winter already? School started in episode 2, which would place that episode in september, and every episode seems to start just a little bit after the previous one, so it really should be around late september instead of mid december, which is a pretty big difference.
Goof: After Zack punches Seth and Summer bends down to tend to Seth, you can clearly see the white tape covering her breasts.
Goof: That huge penguin would not have fit into Marissa's sports car, so how did she get it to school?
Goof: Summer refers to the concert that they all attended in the previous episode as being on Saturday night, but it was on Friday night.
Goof: When Zack punches Seth outside the winter dance, he hits him with his right hand. But when Summer give him ice for his hand, he puts it on his left hand.
Julie: Jimmy, look. See?
(Jimmy turns around to see Ryan and Marissa dancing together)
Jimmy: Mmm. Yeah. She looks beautiful.
Julie: Yes, but more importantly, she's with Ryan who, right now, let's face it, looks like Prince Charming.
Zack: Hey, Ryan, do you know where I can buy my SnO.C. tickets?
Ryan: Can't say I do.
Zack: You're not going?
Ryan: Uh no.
Zack: Don't have anyone to go with?
Ryan: I had someone to go with, she just didn't want to go with me. What's up? You going with Summer?
Zack: Definitely, its a given, right. Except of course for Cohen.
Ryan: Uh, I don't think he's asking Summer.
Zack: I don't think he has to. I mean even if he doesn't ask her somehow the night's going to end up about them.
Julie: (Opens Marissa's door and gasps) Oh my God. The yard guy?
Julie: What are you doing home from school?
Marissa: I'm on my lunch break; and now, if you'll excuse me I have to get back.
D.J.: And I have to get back to work.
Julie: No you don't, you're fired. And you, young lady, are grounded.
Marissa: Like that's going to keep me from seeing him. C'mon D.J.
Julie: (to D.J.) You stay away from my daughter, do you hear me?
Summer: Oh sorry, Alex, my mistake, and here I was feeling sorry for the wrong girl.
Zach: I should probably get to class.
Summer: You know you should really tell her to wear comfortable shoes so she doesn't twist her ankle when she's running away.
Seth: Yeah, like, like him? (pointing back towards Zach)
Summer: Zach! Wait!
Seth: That worked out rather nicely.
Kirsten: Seth, why aren't you dressed?
Sandy: Yeah. You're going to be late for the party.
Ryan: Not the Seth Cohen pity party.
Seth: So Alex kisses me and then she turns right around and kisses Homer.
Ryan: Who's Homer?
Seth: The beer guy! And he's not a looker either; and then she turns right around and kisses Mandy.
Ryan: Mandy's a girl?
Seth: No I couldn't even enjoy it, so consumed was I with how crazy women are!
Ryan: I spent all night talking to Lindsay at a bus stop and then she dumps me before we even go out!
Summer: You've gotta go, like, Ice-Man on her ass.
Seth: Wow, was that your first X-Men reference?
Summer: Top Gun.
Seth: Top Gun. Hey. That's like one of the greatest love stories of our time.
Seth: Hey, need a hand with something?
Seth: Ryan, be a gentleman. (heading off) I've got class.
Kirsten: I don't want you getting yourself in trouble over this.
Sandy: Oh, honey. It's a little late for that.
Seth: Ryan Atwood, afraid of a girl?
Ryan: I just might like her, and every time a big event happens...
Seth: Things go awry.
Lindsay: He must think I'm crazy.
Seth: He knows you're a girl, he expects it.
Alex: What are those?
Seth: These are fists or, as I like to call them, the twin ambassadors of pain!
Seth: (speaking about Zach)He 's jealous of what, my good looks and charm? Of my modesty?
Summer: Of your big mouth.
(Sandy speaking to Ryan after he and Kirsten joined Seth watching a kung-fu movie at their home and started making commentaries about it. Seth was watching the movie rather than going to the SnO.C., this way Seth prefered to go to the dance)
Sandy: Never underestimate the ability of parents to mortify their children.
[At the end of the episode Renee Wheeler has come to try and get Sandy to quit trying to learn Caleb's secret and we learn that Lindsay is Renee's daughter (as wells as Caleb's)]
Lindsey (coming out of the Cohen pool house): Mom! What are you doing here?
(Sandy tells Kirsten that he couldn't get any information about Caleb's payments to Renee Wheeler from either of them..)
Kristin: Dad (is) still not talking?
Sandy: What could he have done that he would rather go to jail than admit to? Unless… life with Julie Cooper is tougher than we thought.
Julie: I was easy to live with back then. I was beautiful and much nicer.
Jimmy: Jules, come on, you're still beautiful. And we both know you were never nice.
(about Seth and Summer's relationship)
Zach: Even when you're not being a couple, you'll always be a couple. You're like Joanie and Chachi, Luke and Leia.
Seth: Um, Luke and Leia were brother and sister.
Zach: Yeah well, may the force be with you.
Alex:(to Zach about Summer) She can't fall for you if you aren't there to catch her.

Zach: You are like Luke and Leia.
Luke and Leia are an inseparable brother-sister team from Star Wars IV, V and VI.
Seth: Seth Cohen asks Ryan if he "puked like that girl from Sixth Sense, or like that fat guy in Monty Python." Mischa Barton (Marissa) played the girl who vomited in the The Sixth Sense (1999).
Zach: (to Seth and Summer): "May the force be with you"
From "Star Wars", perhaps the best ever empowerment phrase to come from a movie.
(After comparing them to Luke and Leia)
Zach: (to Seth and Summer) you're like Joanie and Chachi
These are characters on the show Happy Days.
Lindsay: Freudian slippers
A Freudian slip is where you mean to say one thing, but you say something else that reveals what you are really thinking about.
