  • Quotes

    • Gabe: Bros just need a place where they can, like, chill and hang with the bros.
      Suki: Big talk from a bro who plays with dolls.
      Gabe: Okay, whoa whoa. Okay, uncalled-for. She doesn't know what she's talking about. Senor Guapo is an action figure. He just happens to have button eyes... and a cute squashy bottom.

    • CJ: Why not?
      Headmaster: Because dances are a distraction.
      CJ: Or a perfect opportunity for us to round out our first-rate educational experience by practicing our social skills--assimilation, etiquette, uh...
      Headmaster: Hand-eye coordination?

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Ian: You look like Velma from Scooby Doo.
      Referencing Velma Dinkley, the intellectual young woman who is a member of the Scooby Gang in various incarnations of the animated Scooby Doo series as well as the live-action movies. Velma is best known for her distinctive hair style, orange/brown ensemble, near-sightedness, and the fact she usually solves the mysteries.

    • Jeremy: "Quote the raven, 'Nevermore.'"
      Referencing Edgar Allan Poe's 1845 poem "The Raven." In it, an unnamed narrator laments the loss of his lover, Lenore, and is visited by a talking raven that taunts him. The only word the raven can or will say is "Nevermore."
