  • Trivia

    • Dino calls Jonathan to tell him the party's off, but he doesn't say why. Jonathan is so relieved he immediately hangs up, not asking Dino what happened to make him cancel it. When Jonathan calls Deborah, he tells her that Dino's parents aren't going out of town. How did Jonathan know?

    • Dino's hockey jersey number is #28.

    • When Jonathan is at the doctor, the sun is shining through the window. BUT, before he goes to the doctor, the party has already started, and several scenes have shown that it is fully dark at night.

  • Quotes

    • Deb: (about Jonathan) Time to kick some ass.
      Ben: You do kick some ass don't you.
      Deb: Ya, so quit the fat jokes or your a dead man

    • Jonathan: Oh and Deb is totally down tonight too. She could hardly keep her hands off me.
      Ben: Maybe she thinks your hiding a doughnut.

    • Topher: (to Dino) Dude, I heard that like for every hot chick there are like 10 guys that can't stand her.

    • Ben: I'm a new man tonight. Anything with a pulse. You watch. Shy boy is dead.

    • Ben: What's going on tonight?
      Sue: Going on?
      Ben: Ya, like where's everybody hangin' out?
      Sue: What, you mean like the Peach Pit?
      Jackie: Sue, be nice.

    • Michael: So... Are you and Jackie...
      Dino: No! Come on! Geez...
      Michael: You're still in the bases, uh?
      Dino: The what?
      Michael: The bases, you know... First is making out, second is feeling up...
      Dino: Ok, Fonzie...
      Michael: What do you mean?
      Dino: Feeling up, as you call it, it's the first...
      Michael: It's first?
      Dino: Yeah!
      Michael: What's second?
      Dino: I don't know... I don't think there is a second.
      Michael: No second? Really?
      Dino: People don't really talk about the bases anymore... They just do it!
      Michael: You mean like... intercourse?
      Dino: (points to the radio) Turn this up, I like the song.
      Michael: Yeah, me too...

    • Ben: This is so weird... I have never seen Dino cry.
      Dino: I can't believe I'm crying in front of them. They're gonna think I'm such a wuss.
      Jonathan: Dino gives me a lot of crap, but I know if anyone ever did anything to me, he'd probably kill them. But I can never really do anything for him. Except now. Now I can actually make it better... (to Dino and Ben) Tonight I went to the hospital because I thought my penis was going to explode.

    • Michael: It doesn't make any sense... Dino's a scorer, not an enforcer.
