  • Trivia

    • New powers exhibited
      Kyle can access his holographic memory to replay his experiences of the day.
      Kyle can judge the weight of an object he lifts to an accuracy of at least 9 grams.

    • Nitpick: When Kyle counts $397 in the till, Josh says there should be $570 and change. He then says that this means they are $120 short (a figure which is repeated often). In fact, they are $173 short.

    • Nitpick: Andy states that her last chemo session was two days ago, which means she had chemo on Thursday. In a previous episode, Josh tries to play the cancer card on Nicole, and she replies that Andy has chemo on Tuesday.

  • Quotes

    • Kyle: Can I help?
      Josh: Raise your right hand. Do you solemnly swear to uphold the principles of the Rack and not do anything that will get me fired and/or sued for labour law violations, so help you Josh?

    • (As Mark leaves the Trager house)
      Declan: Who was that?
      Lori: Some guy I pepper-sprayed.
      Declan: Why'd you do that?
      Lori: He pissed me off.

    • Josh: The money is still missing, can't you do something Kyle-like?
      Kyle: I can access my holographic memory, it lets me re-examine past events from every angle.
      Josh: Oh, I though you could do something cool, like make money.

    • Declan: Amanda doesn't have to know you're hanging out with [Jessi].
      Kyle: I won't lie to her.
      Declan: Then try the four magic words: 'You're right, I'm sorry.'
      Kyle: I should apologize even though I think I've done nothing wrong?
      Declan: Hell yes! Sometimes you gotta let them be right, even though you know they're wrong.
      Kyle: Or they'll take their business somewhere else.
      Declan: (Confused) What?
      Kyle: The customer is always right.
      Declan: Yeah... something like that. I'm telling you, those four little words are an instant cure - the fight is over. You can move on right to the make-up sex. Or, in your case, make-up... hugs.

    • Lori: (After a door hits her, spilling coffee over her.) That did not just happen.
      Mark: I'm sorry.
      Lori: You should be! Holding the door would get you, what, kicked out the asshats society!?
      Mark: Maybe you can put in a good word for me at the psycho-bitch league.
      Lori: Tell you what, let's settle this out of court. Let me buy you a coffee! (Lori throws coffee over Mark.)

    • Kyle: Am I too late?
      Amanda: For?
      Kyle: I wanna be your first.
      Josh: Uh, being somebody's first can mean something completely different.
      Kyle: (confused) I wanna be your first customer.
      Amanda: I knew what you meant.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Lori: (to Amanda) Easy there, Lady Macbeth. You've been scrubbing that spot for quite some time now…

      Lori refers to the play Macbeth by William Shakespeare. In that play, after spurring her husband to murder the king, Lady Macbeth desperately tries in vain to wash his imaginary blood from her hands.

    • Josh: Do your holodeck whatever thing.
      A holodeck is a facility in the Star Trek universe that simulates reality.
