Hart Of Dixie: Why Don't We Get Drunk?

Lavon's big plans of making BlueBell a Spring Break destination hits a roadblock when the competing town tries to lure the partiers away. With the help of Ruby Jeffries, Lavon creates a competition that is bound to attract some attention. Eager to join in some much-deserved fun, Zoe agrees to give partying a try with Jonah, but seeing them together makes George jealous. Wade and Lemon decide to compete in Lavon's contest in order to win the grand prize to buy the Rammer Jammer, which they have learned is for sale. Meanwhile, Brick has been acting odd and when everyone begins to notice they force him to seek treatment.

The episode begins with Zoe visibly shocked on seeing a bunch of teenagers frolicking in the pond in front of her house. Turns out, Lavon is promoting the town as a spring break destination because it will bring in a lot of publicity and revenue. Zoe doesn’t like the idea, saying partying teenagers means sex crimes, vandalism, drug abuse etc. At the clinic, while Zoe is busy complaining to Brick, how this whole spring break thing is a bad idea, Jonah arrives. He in the course of his conversation with Zoe realizes that she has never been to spring break, so he invites her to go with him, but she refuses. ..

Episode Quotes
Wade: Hey, mornin' Doc. Beer? I'll give you the locals price.
Zoe: Of course you're involved.
Wade: Yeah, they just kind of showed up in the pond this morning. Cute, huh?
Zoe: And your immediate response was to sell alcohol to under-age students?
Wade: No, that would be wrong. That's why I never asked them their age.

Lavon: Morning! I see you're enjoying Lavon's Pond Party on Spring Break.
Zoe: When did Bluebell become Daytona Beach?
Lavon: When its mayor, that's me, sold a college tour company on the gulf coast's best kept spring break secret. I mean, why should Cancun, Panama City, South Padre get all the tourism, money, publicity...
Zoe: Alcohol related accidents, civil disturbances, vandalism, sex crimes...
Wade: Well, when you put it in that tone, anything sounds bad.

Sgt. Jeffires: Hey, hey. You two! Unless you're giving birth right here in town square nobody wants to see your privates!
Lavon: Sgt. Jeffries!
Sgt. Jeffries: What?
Lavon: We talked about courtesy, now!

George: I am not a fan of yours.
Jonah: I'm sorry?
George: I can say that now. You were always Lemon's favourite cousin, so I had to be nice, but I'm not with Lemon any more so I can say that now. I do not like you.
Jonah: George, your words, they cut. Not like knives, because you're really dull, but more like the soft teeth of some leaf eating mammal.
George: Well, I do not have to care what you think, because I do not like you.

Lemon: You ready to give up yet, Wade Kinsella?
Wade: Why, you fainting?
Lemon: What, me? Never!
Wade: Yeah, well me neither.
Lemon: I'm surprised. You've always been so good at quitting.
Wade: Oh, burn. Everybody already knows that, see, they're expecting it. I've got one more chance to prove to you and everybody else that they're wrong.
Lemon: Why, of all times now? Why don't you just let me have the damn boat?
Wade: Why do you even care so much Lemon? Go bake some cupcakes, okay. Decorate a house, do something else, anything.

Zoe: Look, I'm sorry for accusing you of being jealous of Jonah.
George: Nah, it's okay.
Zoe: I mean, because there were ducks and that's you took the scenic route.
George: Black-bellied whistling ducks. Yeah, they're in migration right now. It's actually a rare sight to see.
Zoe: Really, whistling ducks? What do they whistle?
George: Show tunes, mostly. It's very annoying.
