Episode Quotes
Maeby: The only real way to find out how it's done is to sneak on the boat while he does it.
George Michael: Yeah, but then if he makes it disappear, won't everyone just see me standing there?
Maeby: Let's just sit quietly and consider how ridiculous that statement was ... Anyway, if it was me, that's what I would do.

Lindsay: Ok, I tell you what. I'll take you down to see Nana if you split the money with me 60-40.
Maeby: 55-55.
Lindsay: Deal.
Michael: Sounds like you guys are getting more than you think.

Michael: What’d he say?
George Michael: Well, if I clean it up, it’s not really a sentence.

G.O.B.: Maybe we’ll meet a couple of young coeds along the way. How young is too young for you?
Michael: Okay, that’s not going to happen. Okay? There’s not gonna be any coeds. There certainly isn’t going to be any magic. It is a path to a lonely life where people mock you and you don’t even realize it.
G.O.B.: But Michael, I’m a magici ... Oh, I see what you did.

G.O.B.: Spring break. It’s my favorite holiday. Nothing gets me more excited.
Michael: I can see that. You might want to button that shirt up.

Michael: You’re not dressed yet? I thought you were working for me today in the office.
Lindsay: Oh, you guys stay open during spring break?
Michael: Well, we’re not Orthodox.

Michael: Kitty, these are not the files I asked for.
Kitty: Oh, then I don’t know what I shredded.

Michael: Have you had a chance to type up that report yet?
Kitty: No, I have been Googling your father.
Michael: So I’ve heard.

Lindsay: Speaking of which, have we gotten anything from Nana?
Michael: Buster got a perforated heart and G.O.B. got that receding hairline, but you and I pretty much dodged the bullet.

Episode Goofs
In the flashback, the water cooler is labeled "H. MADDAZ" instead of "H. MADDAS" as it is labeled in the final scene.

Tobias tells George, Sr. that he's been a part of the Bluth family for 16 years, but in "Marta Complex", Tobias and Lindsay celebrate their 14th anniversary.

Visual: Girls with Low Self-Esteem video

The Girls with Low Self-Esteem video is a play on the Girls Gone Wild series of videos.

Episode References
Maeby: I'll split [Nana's money] 55-55.

Maeby being horrible at math is a reference back to "Top Banana" when we first learn that Maeby is bad a math.

Visual: G.O.B. announcing that he'll make a yacht disappear on Y.O.M. Television

G.O.B.'s announcement on Y.O.M. Television parallels the announcement he makes about his escape from a jail cell on Acceso Mexico in "Key Decisions".

Visual: Kitty wearing a Cloud Mir T-shirt

The vodka Cloud Mir was first seen in "Public Relations" when Lindsay promoted it by ordering it in the bar.

Michael: Buster got a perforated heart and G.O.B. got that receding hairline, but you and I pretty much dodged the bullet.

Buster's hole in his heart was first mentioned in "Storming the Castle".
