Episode Quotes
Steve: Hey, get off it. I'm the guy who taught you how to work that clutch.
Kelly: I drive an automatic, thank you very much.
Steve: Figures.

Brandon: First day of school. Strange city, new house, no friends. I'm psyched.

Steve: (about Kelly) She's lousy in bed, she's got a nasty personality.
David: I could live with that.
Steve: Who are you?

Brenda: Everyone here looks like they stepped out of a music video. I don't even have the right hair.

Brenda: Nobody knows me here. I could be anybody. I could be somebody.

Andrea: There are better ways to get popular then advertising your sexual conquests.

Episode Goofs
The exterior of the Walsh house is different in this episode than the rest of the series.

In this episode, Brenda has a driver's license; however, in later episodes, it is a recurring theme that Brenda does not have a driver's license and has to learn to drive.
