    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • While Hillary and Dave are meeting with the principal in his office, you can see a poster on the door that reads "PAUSE." PAUSE is the ad campaign created by FOX network that reminds teens to stop and pause, and that it only takes a minute to change your life. The campaign is meant to provide adequate resources for teens who struggle with issues concerning relationships, eating disorders, cutting, and substance abuse.

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Hillary: You guys don't have to do all this for me.
        Dave: Oh, my little birdie, this party isn't for you, it's for me.

      • Dave: (to P.E. Teacher) Come on, there's gotta be something we can do here. Can't we work this out man-to-man.
        P.E. Teacher: I'm a woman.
        Dave: And a beautiful one.

      • Dave: Think, Fink. This is your opportunity to be rid of Hillary Gold once and for all. And if I were you, I'd be attaching a rocket to her ass and shooting her out into space. I mean, seriously, do you really want this girl in your school a minute longer than necessary.
        Principal Fink: You know, I never quite thought of it like that. Okay!

      • Mike: Alright, I've been up all night brainstorming, and I think you're both going to be very pleased.
        Larry: Wow, you know, this is the first time I've ever been excited about having a little brother since they brought you home from the hospital and I realized that no one would pay any attention to me ever again... (pauses) So what do you got?

      • Dave: Interesting... (smelling his hand after touching under Hillary's arms) I don't detect any moisture or odor.
        Hillary: That's because I don't perspire. I'm a lady.
        Dave: You're a Gold, which means you sweat like a pig. Now, come on, let's go down to your high school track and work out, alright? You were conceived on that field and you're gonna graduate on that field!

      • Dave: (to Larry) Hey, if you guys don't find these crickets, I'm going to call an exterminator, for you.

      • Vicky: Tell me you had it done, Dave. You had it done. You had it done. Dave, you had it done, right? Dave, you had it done. Honey, I had it done.... (Dave cuts her off)
        Dave: I didn't have it done!
        Vicky: (bursts into tears) Wahahaha. (sobbing)

      • P.E. Teacher: (to Hillary) Not so fast, cupcake. That means you're going to have to be able to run a mile in under eight minutes, do 25 push-ups in three minutes and 50 sit-ups in two minutes.
        Dave: Isn't that a little tough for a girl?
        P.E. Teacher: I can do it.
        (cut scene)
        Dave: I repeat, isn't that a little tough for a girl?
