Episode Quotes
(Gloria and Jay talk to the camera about their differences.)
Jay: Gloria and I are from different Generations. I won't lie. It's not always easy. I mean last week she thought Simon and Garfunkel were my lawyers.
Gloria: No I didn't.
Jay: It's a joke.
Gloria: I don't get it.
Jay: Maybe that's because there's no mallet.
Gloria: I wish I had a mallet right now.

(Claire opens the door and greets Dylan.)
Dylan: Happy Valentines day Mrs. Dunphy. (Hands her a rose.)
Claire: Oh, thank you. That is so sweet.
Dylan: You know, all women should look as tasty as you when they're old.

(Phil talks to the camera about Dylan's gift for Haley.)
Phil: Did he trump me? You tell me. He made a painting out of a photograph one time. I have hand picked a card, drawn a heart in the steam on the medicine cabinet, and taken Claire to Fertelli's, a family style Italian restaurant, for 17 years in a row. Yeah he got me. He got me.

(Cam tells Mitchel that they're watching Manny for the night.)
Mitchel: That's fine. It might be nice to have him around. He always makes me laugh.
Cam: (Opens the door) Hi Manny.
Manny: The universe is cold and loveless.

Cultural References
One of the things that shows the age and cultural differences between Jay and Gloria is that she doesn't know who Johnny Carson is.

When talking about their differences, Jay makes a joke about Gloria believing that Simon and Garfunkel are his lawyers. They were musicians.
