Lauren: So, you don't have any endorsements yet...for clothes?
Emily: Not yet, but maybe after Nationals.
Lauren: Someone's cocky!
Kaylie: It's so weird. All this work, and it can all be over in one weekend...
Lauren: (to Emily) You may have all these people fooled, but I have your number. You have no consistency. And I'm going to make sure you get buried in Boston
Kaylie: Ugh! I'm a butterball! I'm turning into Mary-freaking-Lou!
Kaylie Cruz: I'm a butterball! I'm turning into Mary-freaking-Lou!
Marylou Retton, the 1984 Olympic All-Around Champion, had a short and stocky build which made her look "heavy" for a gymnast by her coaches. Later claimed to have been called "fat" on a number of occasions by coach Bela Karolyi
Steven Keeler: She's the one they found on a playground?
Emily Kmetko being "discovered" at a playground is a reference to famous gymnast Nadia Comaneci (the first gymnast to score a perfect 10 in the Olympics and Bart Connors long time wife) being found on a playground doing cartwheels in kindergarten by legendary coach, Bela Karolyi.
