  • Quotes

    • Headmaster: "Excels at all sports, particularly martial arts." I heard you ran into the Buffer team. Consider joining?
      Ian: I'm not a team player.
      Headmaster: Yet.

    • Ian: So, Head Master, uh, is that it? Just one name, like Pink, Rhianna?
      Headmaster: Staff are addressed here by their titles--Science, Math. I think you've already met Coach. Keeps things simple yet respectful.

    • CJ: Keep up, Forrest
      Gabe: Guys, come on. I wasn't cut out for this, all right? I can talk my way out of a fight, I can do that. Scaling walls to freedom, not so much.

    • CJ: You remember Gabe Forrest from class.
      Ian: Yeah. Funny guy.
      Gabe: It's a gift.

    • Ian: You guys were fighting back?
      CJ: We've been jerked around long enough. We had to fight back.
      Ian: Man, am I glad I met you guys.
      Gabe: Yeah, I guess we're glad to meet you, too.

    • Gabe: Hey, Ian, you want--you want to know what I can do?
      Ian: Unless you can teleport us home, I'll pass.

    • Gabe: Fine. Hey, guys. how are you? Love the eyes. Really brings out the creepiness. So listen, i think there's been a huge miscommunication here. Yeah, you see, my friends and I, these guys, we just took a wrong turn after study hall, chased a baby raccoon out here. You should have seen his face, he was so adorable.
      CJ: Don't worry. He can talk his way out of anything. That's his ability.
      Gabe: I don't think there's any reason for us to be running around the forest screaming our heads off like crazy people--or howling, for that matter, sir. Okay? We're just going to head back to campus, and you gentleman, well, you gentleman can fly back to the Batcave or wherever you hole up. I can see you're getting a little angry.

    • Ian: Picking up anything besides embarrassment and the desire to inflict pain?
      CJ: I see Zack's tear ducts welling up. Going to lose it.

    • Suki: You're different, CJ. You've been here all along. But the three of us--our parents knew about this. They decided to send us here. If we go back, what do we go back to? What will we have if they reject us?
      Ian: We'll have each other.

    • Headmaster: Mr. Archer. So Math tells me there was an incident last night involving your roommates.
      Ian: Guys just being guys, I guess, whopping it up naked on the lawn, setting off the security system just for fun.
      Headmaster: You didn't see anything unusual?
      Ian: I did mention they were naked, right?

    • CJ: Headmaster didn't appreciate your message.
      Ian: Well, we're even. I don't appreciate his school.

      Referencing the underground base of the DC Comics superhero, Batman, created by Bob Kane in 1939. Originally a simple chamber, Batman expanded it throughout the years. It has been invaded and all but destroyed several times, and Batman has created a number of subsidiary "Batcaves" throughout Gotham City and in other cities, although they are not all literally caves.
