Kris is reading through a magazine called Modern Jockey. This magazine does not exist in real life. It's just a prop.
Junior: You sure you don't want to go somewhere else?
Kris: (laughs) I have to get back but do you wanna hang out tomorrow?
Junior: Wait, you're asking me out?
Kris: (to Pablo and Jean) I'm sorry if that's not the future you guys want for me but that's what I want.
Matt: I'll do anything!
Jean: (crestfallen) I've heard that before...
Kris: Matt, you're a really good friend.
Matt: Do me a favor. Don't tell me that.
Henry: Kris isn't there.
Junior: I know, I've been knocking for five minutes!
Henry: She's in the hospital... took a bad spill.
Henry: (to Matt) If it wasn't for your mother, I'd take a strap to you!
Kris: Want to hang out tomorrow?
Junior: Wait a minute--are you asking me out?
Kris: You make me nervous!
Junior: So I do have an effect on you!
Jean: (furious) That GED class was working toward a high school degree! A future!
Tina: (to Kris) I hate to break it to you, but you're too old. I started [jockeying] when I was thirteen.
Dani: (to Evan) It's weird... I know more about this horse's mother, than my own mother.
Junior: You love horses, Paris Hilton loves posing nude with small dogs.
Pablo: That was Mario on the phone. He just quit. We're gonna need a new jockey.
Matt: What I saw and what you're telling me are two different things.
Kris: Don't make this a big deal.
Matt: This is a big deal!
Dani tells Evan that her horse has the bloodlines of Man O' War and Secretariat.
Man O' War was so good, he was penalized! He would have to carry more than the typical 138 pounds as a 4-year-old, so his owner retired him to stud. He proved to be quite a stud. Among his 386 registered foals were 64 stakes winners, including 1937 Triple Crown winner War Admiral, 1929 Kentucky Derby winner Clyde Van Dusen and Battleship, the winner of the 1938 Grand National Steeplechase in England. While one of his offspring, Hard Tack, sired the famous Seabiscuit.
Secretariat is perhaps the best known race horse of all time. He won the 1973 Belmont Stakes in 2:24 flat, a world record for 1.5 miles.
Both the legendary horses have a nickname in common: "Big Red."
Junior explains the meaning of a "Buckner" to Todd while they are watching a baseball game on TV.
Bill Buckner was an all-star first baseman who is remembered most for an unfortunate error he made in a World Series play-off game (Game 6, 1986), allowing the New York Mets to beat the Boston Red Sox. The Red Sox's World Series 86-year World Series drought continued until 2004.
