When Kevin gets home from the airport, he says Ashley was talking on the phone with Jared when he left, but we in fact see that she wasn't.
We see Kevin leaving for the airport just a couple of minutes after Paul and Carrie, but when he gets there Carrie has already checked in and gone through customs and security, which should take more than an hour.
Kevin says that Jared is not going to New York in a month, before he goes to dinner with Carrie. The next day after he says that, Ashley is on the phone with Jared, who is already in New York.
Ashley: It's too bad Dad's date didn't work out.
Mary-Kate: Yeah. He's not that bad looking for an old man.
Jennifer: Hello! I can't believe you two don't see it. Carrie's perfect for your dad!
Mary-Kate: (she and Ashley start laughing) Are you crazy? Dad and Carrie? No way! They spend most of their time arguing.
Jennifer: So do my parents, and they've been married for 15 years!
(At the airport)
Kevin: (Panting) Carrie.
Carrie: What are you doing here?
Kevin: I just wanted... to say... it's a long run from the parking garage.
Carrie: Here, here. Catch your breath.
Kevin: I think I knocked over a Jehovah's witness around gate 12, too.
Paul: Look, Carrie, we should get going. My parents want me out of my room by noon.
Carrie: Oh, right.
Paul: Hey, professor.
Paul: Carrie ready? I'm taking her to the airport.
Kevin: Yeah, sure, come on in, Paul.
Paul: Thanks. Oh, still grading finals, I see. I don't suppose you've gotten to mine?
Kevin: Sorry, Paul, you're gonna get your grade in the mail like everybody else.
Paul: Of course, I wouldn't expect any special treatment. Just 'cause I've been in your home, and broken bread with your family, and baby-sat your children - like that means anything.
Kevin: What's that, Paul?
Paul: Oh, nothing, nothing. (Softly) Ingrate.
Mary-Kate: (About Carrie) But you have fun with her. I mean, she makes you laugh.
Kevin: Well, so does Homer Simpson, but I don't want to date him.
Matt: Hey, nice suit. You going out with Mindy again?
Kevin: If I were going out with Mindy again, I'd be wearing a gun to my head.
Jennifer: You guys have to do something before Carrie leaves town.
Ashley: Good point. What if Carrie meets somebody in South America?
Mary-Kate: Who? Juan Valdez?
Carrie: Uh-oh. You're home early. How was your date?
Kevin: Have you known a good one to end before 8:00? I finally told her I had a headache and took her home.
Carrie: You actually faked a headache?
Kevin: Oh, there was nothing fake about it. We went to a karaoke bar.
Kevin: So, Mindy, I - I hear you teach first grade. That must be very rewarding.
Mindy: About $26,000 a year.
Kevin: No, no, I meant working with children.
Mindy: Oh, yeah. That.
(At a karaoke bar; after Mindy sang "Ring of Fire" off-key)
Matt: Oh, Mindy, that was incredible.
Mindy: Thank you. Thank you so much. (Laughs)
Christine: I think you could be a professional singer. Kevin, don't you think she could be a professional singer?
Kevin: Well, she certainly hit... an assortment of notes.
Mindy: You should hear some of the notes I hit when I'm not on stage.
Carrie: Hey, is my exam in here?
Kevin: Carrie, school policy. You'll get your grade in the mail like everybody else.
Carrie: Oh, but I'll be in the middle of the rain forest.
Kevin: Well, see if you can borrow the village drum and get in touch with me.
Carrie: Fine, but I doubt you'll hear it with your head so far up your butt. (Leaves)
Kevin: (To Matt) What?
Matt: She's just asking for her grade, Kev, not the Colonel's secret recipe.
Mary-Kate: Hey, dad, you remember Ethan.
Kevin: Yeah. You guys playing basketball?
Mary-Kate: Yeah. Since Ethan's been helping me with my math, I said I'd give him a few shooting tips.
Ethan: Once I grasped the importance of calculating the arcs and angles of the projectile, I realized that the whole game was nothing more than a geometric exercise played out in 3 dimensions.
Kevin: And they say white men can't... calculate.
Kevin: I mean, we just fixed up your apartment. What about that?
Carrie: Oh, Paul's gonna sublet it while I'm away.
Kevin: That kinda throws off all my summer plans.
Mary-Kate: What plans?
Kevin: Well, for one thing, spending time away from Paul. (Pauses) And a whole bunch of other stuff.
Carrie: Like what?
Kevin: Well, you know, what's the point now? You're not gonna be here. (Leaves)
Carrie: Your dad doesn't do change well, does he?
Ashley: I know. I still haven't got the guts to tell him that I'm shaving my legs.
Mary-Kate: That's because you're using his razor.
Carrie: Oh! It's over! Ha, ha! I just took my last exam of the year, my final final. I feel like celebrating.
Kevin: I feel like celebrating, too.
Carrie: What for?
Kevin: You're no longer in my class!
Kevin: Ashley, I thought you liked Jared.
Ashley: I do. It just seems like the more I treat him like dirt, the more he worships me.
Kevin: And the teen years begin.
Jared: So, Ashley, can I walk you to school in the morning?
Ashley: Jared, tomorrow's Saturday.
Jared: Oh. Well, where are you going? Maybe I can walk you there.
Ashley: I'll tell you what, why don't I call you?
Jared: And then you'll tell me where you're going?
Ashley: You'll be the first to know.
Kevin: Carrie looks pretty hot tonight, doesn't she?
Mary-Kate: Did dad just use the word... "hot"?
Kevin: Why aren't you dressed for dinner?
Ashley: I can't go, dad. I promised Jared I'd call him to work on our relationship.
Mary-Kate: And I have a math final that I really need to study for. Have fun, though.
Mary-Kate & Ashley: Bye.
Kevin: All right, what's going on? Jared's not leaving for a month, and you'd rather clip grandma's toenails than study.
Mary-Kate: Hi, dad.
Kevin: That wasn't Jerry Springer, was it, Mary-Kate?
Mary-Kate: Oh, come on, dad! You know I wouldn't watch that trash.
(After Kevin gets back from the airport)
Kevin: (About Ashley) Who's she talking to?
Kevin: She was talking to him this morning when I left. I told her she can only call him once a day while he was in New York.
Mary-Kate: Oh, she knows. It's the same call.
Kevin: The same call? Ashley, hang up the phone.
Ashley: Hold on, dad. I'm almost done. Jared's just telling me what he had for lunch.
Kevin: Give me the phone.
Ashley: Just a second. Just a second, dad! Just a second! (To Jared, on the phone) Jared, I need to call you back.
Kevin: Give me the phone!
(They both run into the kitchen)
Mary-Kate: Come on, dad, hit her with the chair!
(Mary-Kate's watching a Spanish soap opera on TV)
Ashley: You DO know that this is a Spanish soap opera?
Ashley: You don't speak Spanish. You have enough trouble with English.
Kevin: So... I understand you'll be living downstairs while Carrie's away. What happened to your place?
Paul: Oh, the management asked me to leave.
Kevin: I thought you lived with your parents.
Paul: Oh, I do. I do. It's - It's just, uh, less painful when I refer to them as the management.
Mary-Kate has the last line of the series; 'C'mon Dad, hit her with the chair!'
The two songs Mindy sings off-key at the karaoke bar are "Ring of Fire" & "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy."
Ashley appears to have made up with Jared Christie from the episode, "The Odd Couples."
This cliffhanger was intended as the season finale, not the series finale (which is what it became).
This aired as the season finale on April 2, 1999, although "Kevin Burke's Day Off" aired July 9, 1999, it was taped before this episode. This was intended as a cliffhanger to make a dramatic start with Season 2, but the show was cancelled.
