Episode Quotes
Stephanie: Well, she wants to--date you, I mean.
George: How do you--how do you--how can you tell?
Stephanie: Throbbing carotid, light moisture on her epidermal layer, dilated pupils. All classic signs of pheromone emissions. Ooh. I've been hanging out with Katie a little too much.

Katie: Everyone says that Internet dating is for, like, geeky, socially awkward types, but I meet a lot of people just like me.

Katie: I mean, this might be my only chance to tutor a burgeoning Lex Luthor, or... oh, even, say, a young Reed Richards. Okay, work might not be the only reason I'm single.

Jim: Everything all right, Daph?
Daphne: Uh, this modernist art crap--how did you learn it all?
Jim: Well, it helped not to think of it as crap, for one thing.

Cultural References
Katie: I mean, this might be my only chance to tutor a burgeoning Lex Luthor, or... oh, even, say, a young Reed Richards.

Lex Luthor is the scientific genius and businessman who opposes Superman in the comic books. Reed Richards not only has the power of super-stretching, but possesses an innate genius.

Katie: So you're like A Beautiful Mind meets Memento.

A Beautiful Mind is a 2001 film about Nobel Laureate John Forbes Nash, Jr., who overcame paranoid schizophrenia to master economics. Memento is a 2000 film about a man who is unable to store new memories, and tries to decipher the events leading up to his murdering a man he doesn't remember.
