Charlie says the title And the Plot Moistens of this episode.
Charlie: Oh, by the way, you need to buy Kandi a diamond necklace.
Charlie: You told me to cover for you. I said you were out buying her jewelry.
Alan: That's all you could think of?
Charlie: Well, I could think of a lot of things, but only one made me laugh.
Alan: I can't afford to buy her jewelry.
Charlie: I know, that's what makes it funny.
Jake: She say what I'm in trouble for?
Jake: Boy, it's the not knowing that drives you crazy.
Charlie: Yeah, like a pregnancy test.
Alan: I need to communicate after love making. I need to share.
Charlie: Well maybe you should have thought of that before you started boinking a girl with the IQ of Tickle Me Elmo.
Judith: (on Jake's lack of hobbies) I don't know about his father, but I've tried to share some of my interests with him.
Alan: Unfortunately, he's a little young to drink in the dark and bitch about men.
Charlie: You're already doing a hot 22-year-old and you're cheating on her?
Alan: (ashamed) Yes.
Charlie: I am so proud of you!
Charlie: So, Kandi, what's your favorite musical?
Kandi: The trombone.
Kandi: Why would I fantasize about having sex while I'm having sex? Do you think about ham and cheese when you're eating a sandwich?
Alan: Can't argue with that.

When Jake is complaining that Alan's suggestion for the musical is gay, he picks "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen for his audition piece. Alan says "Oh, good, I was afraid he was going to pick something gay," referring to the fact that Queen's lead singer, Freddie Mercury, was a homosexual.
Alan performs the first quatrain of The Major General's Song in effort to get Jake interested in theater. This is from Gilbert and Sullivan's The Pirates of Penzance.
The musical Jake is performing in at school is Man of La Mancha, based on Miguel de Cervantes' 1605 novel Don Quixote. He is singing its well-known song, The Impossible Dream.
