Kevin: So, there aren't any atomic communists?
Jane: I wouldn't say that.
(Points to the fashion club)
Quinn: Don't say anything.
Tiffany: We're dressed this way for fashion club solidarity.
Sandi: One of us has a problem. That's all you need to know.
Mr. O'Neill: Oh dear! What kind of problem?
Sandi: A private problem.
Stacey: It's a neck zit.
Tiffany: Don't worry Quinn, they still don't know it's you.
(Quinn runs off sobbing)
Tiffany: Did I say the wrong thing?
Sandi: Don't worry about it.
Helen: Daria, is anything wrong with Quinn?
Daria: If this weren't a school day, I might have the time to begin answering that.
Helen: All of a sudden, she doesn't like aliens.
Quinn: Who does? Aliens impregnate you and then they pop out of your chest and kill you while you're trying to eat lunch. What's to like?
Jane: So you convinced your dad you're not a communist?
Daria: Yeah, I'm showing him how much I love money by hitting him up for it every chance I get.
Daria: On your way over here, you didn't see any, um, lights in the sky or anything?
Artie: Oh, no! They're back?!
Jane: Did we just see a U.F.O.?
Daria: You're getting paranoid. It's probably just an informal get-together of local stalkers. You know, hang out, swap stories, try out each other's skeleton keys.
Jane: But only an idiot would go stalking with a flashlight.
Daria: Come on. This is Lawndale.
Jane: Oh, yeah.
Jane: A lot of weirdness around here lately.
Daria: Yeah. I won't be sorry to see this day end.
Jane: You say that every day.
Daria: Oh, yeah.
Jane: Hmm. When was the last time you saw Kevin without his neck thing?
Daria: You're talking implants?
Brittany: I heard that, and it's not true!
Jane: I guess she thought you meant her U.F.O.s.
The Lawndale File
The episode title is a possible reference to the television series The X-Files
in which FBI agents investigate the paranormal.
Quinn: Aliens impregnate you and then they pop out of your chest and kill you while you're trying to eat lunch.
This is a reference to the 1979 movie Alien in which a crew member on a spaceship "gives birth" to an alien embryo that had been growing inside of his chest.
