Norman the Doorman
At the end of the episode, Arwin and Enid began playing foosball on the same side, whereas usually, two players play against each other; one on each side. Also they both grabbed the yellow spinners when one person should have grabbed the black spinner.
This is the second time London has ever gotten into a fight with a female just to get something. The first time was in the episode "Pilot Your Own Life".
Arwin's apartment was the same apartment used in "A Tale of Two Houses".
In previous episodes, Carey couldn't cook. But in this episode she could cook.
When Carey says "lights out at 10" Arwin says something along the lines about getting to stay up 2 hours later which implies he usually goes to bed at 8:00pm. This furthers the idea that Arwin has the personality of a child.
London said she's always been the "dumper" and has never been the "dumpee". But in the episode "Ahhh, Wilderness", she said she got dumped 2 years ago.
This is the second time London has thought there was a Dungeon in the Tipton. The first time was in "Rumors".
Nia is known to take money from others.
Arwin loves squirrels.
Arwin: (Licks the plate) clean plate up. I got dessert (to Cody) in your face.
Cody: Actually, it's on your face.
Zack: (Walks in) Ah, that wheat loaf just goes right through me (turns the tap on to flush the toilet)
Arwin: Carey, can I help you wash the dishes.
Carey: Thank you Arwin. (to Zack and Cody) How thoughtful of you.
Arwin: I always used to do it with my mother, she washes, I dry, she told me I missed a spot and smack me with a dish towel. Oh I miss her.
Zack: Mom, smack him with the dish towel.
Carey: I'm not going to do that.
Cody: Well maybe Arwin can stay here tonight.
Zack: Great idea. Hey Arwin, you can stay here tonight, can't you?
Cody: Yeah, can you?
Zack & Cody: Please, mom, please!
Carey: But he doesn't have pajamas.
Arwin: Yes I do (takes off his clothes)
Zack: You wear your pajamas under your clothes?
Arwin: Well if I wore them over my clothes, you think I was weird.
Cody: Mom, He doesn't want to go home. He misses his mommy.
Zack: Which I don't get at all (Carey's staring at him)...at his age.
Cody: We should invite him to dinner. It will make him feel better.
Carey: Well, we do have enough wheat loaf to go around.
Cody: Wheat loaf? We want him to cheer up not throw up.
Zack: Yeah, that was the hell food to killing us.
Arwin: I think you boys should be grateful to eat food made by your mother.
Zack: You want to taste it before you say that.
Arwin: Are you inviting me to dinner? Oh, that's so sweet, you know I should go home, I really should but if you insist…
Carey: Arwin we would be delighted if you would stay for dinner.
Arwin: Oh, I almost forgot. My mom said that washed your hand before dinner (he goes to the sink and turns the tap on, but it doesn't work, instead there's water flushing noise in the toilet)
Arwin: (Crying while fix the elevator)
Zack: Hey Arwin, down?
Arwin: Yeah, a little.
Zack: Actually, I was talking about the elevator cause we're gonna up.
Cody: What's the matter, Arwin?
Arwin: (being interrupted by the elevator door opening and closing) Nothing, it's just mother… And now, she's getting… and I, I have to… monkey sock doll!
Cody: So, your mom's getting married and moving out and now you're gonna live alone and have no one to talk to except your monkey sock doll?
Arwin: You know me so well. (Blows his nose and making it dirty)
London: Lance, I am so excited about our dinner date. Look what I'm gonna wear. This is for appetizer, this is for the entrée, and this is for the after dinner meat. See, it's mint green. Lance: London look, there's no easy way for me to tell you this, I'm breaking up with you. London: Well I don't think I have an outfit for that. Lance: No, no, what you're wearing is fine. London: Oh, thanks. (Hesitates) fine for what? Lance: For me to breaking up with you. London: You're serious about that?
Arwin: Carey, wait. Aren't you gonna read a bed-time story? Mother always used to do that.
Zack: Yeah, Mom used to do that with us, too. But then we turned six.
Arwin: (crying) How can mother just move out? Who am I gonna go to the movies with?
Zack: Well, we'll go with you, buddy.
Arwin: I am a 34-year-old man. I'm not gonna go to the movies with two little kids. I wanna go with my mommy!
London: You're breaking up with me? But I'm rich and beautiful!
Lance: That's true, but I just don't think we have that much in common.
London: You just agreed that I was rich and beautiful!
Carey: Arwin, you've been working on that sink all day. Don't you wanna take a break and go home?
Arwin: Oh, no, I should really stay here and fix this.
Carey: But it wasn't broken when you got here.
Arwin: (pulls out a pipe) Well, it is now.
London: Moseby! Lance just dumped me! Throw him in the Tipton Dungeon!
Mr. Moseby: For the last time, we don't have a dungeon.
London: Well, then, what's that room in the bottom of the hotel?
Mr. Moseby: That's the basement.
London: Well, if that's the basement, then why is there a fire-breathing dragon in it?
Mr. Moseby: That's the furnace!
Arwin: Where's my rhinoceros pancake!?
