  • Quotes

    • Judge Othniel: Sometimes keeping your heart closed can be more painful than taking the risk to open it.

    • (before he realizes that he is dead)
      Steven: Did you see that fall?
      Mr. Smith: It certainly gives new meaning to the term Freudian slip.

    • (regarding a traumatic event in Steven's life)
      Judge Othniel: You were humiliated. That event turned you into ah, an obsessively fastidious, power hungry...
      Mr. Smith: control freak. (Judge Othniel nods)
      Steven: So what? I like my environment neat and tidy. There's nothing pathological about that.
      Mr. Smith: I think you're terrified to lose control again. That way, no one can humiliate you or abandon you again. Ever.

    • Mr. Smith: Steven, being sent back is supposed to be about forgiving Buzzy Walsh.
      Steven: Oh, I'll forgive Buzzy - after I get even.

  • Allusions

    • Freudian slip
      Also known as parapraxis, it is associated with a slip in speech, memory, or action which can be interpreted as having a deeper meaning and related to an unconscious wish, conflict, or train of thought. It is named after famed Austrian neurologist Sigmund Freud (1856-1939), the founder of the psychoanalytic school of psychology.

    • Triple Salchow and Double Axel
      These are very difficult jumps which are performed in figure skating competitions and exhibitions.

    • Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee
      Steven is quoting world famous heavyweight boxer Muhammad Ali. Ali is purported to have first used the phrase at the weigh-in the day before his first title fight with Sunny Liston, which was held on February 25, 1964.
