Episode Quotes
Katie: Okay, so I always had a crush on Wolverine, but I never thought about what would happen if I actually married Wolverine and if we had little wolvie babies. I mean, if we had kids, do you think they would have superpowers? Because the terrible twos would be much terribler with telekinesis.

Stephanie: I'd like to throw you an engagement party. It's what Batman would do for Robin.
Katie: Ahh. Steph, you're the best. But I'm pretty sure that Robin is a confirmed bachelor.
Stephanie: Huh?
Katie: If you know what I mean.

Mr. Litchfield: You're quite intuitive, Mr. Powell, and it's because of this intuitive genius that I am inviting you to join the academic decathlon team. As you may know, I am the team's adviser, and I believe it would be a great challenge for you.
JJ: I seriously doubt that.
Mr. Litchfield: So... you're not interested?
JJ: You’re quite intuitive yourself, Mr. Litchfield.

Natalie Poston: Look, I'm applying for that merit scholarship everyone's talking about, and if I'm gonna get it, then I can't afford to let my grades slip because I'm hanging out with some cute boy.
JJ: So you're... saying I'm cute?
Natalie Poston: I'm saying you're a distraction, and if I have to choose a "ship" right not, it's not a friendship or a relationship, it's a scholarship.



Cultural References
Katie: Holy Frak.

"Frak" is a swear word in the new Battlestar Galactica series.

Daphne: I think it was Professor Plum with the lead pipe in the library.

In the board game Clue, Professor Plum is one of the six suspects who may have killed Mr. Boddy. The lead pipe is one of the six weapons, and the library is one of the nine locations.

Rob: I got a tip for you, Nurse Ratched.

Nurse Ratched is the antagonist in Ken Casey's 1962 novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.
